In this breakout session, I will go over how our mindset and perspective can transform our lives and bring radical change in our businesses. A focal point will be staying "present" and the role it plays in reducing anxiety, focusing on what we can control, and helping us find joy throughout life. I will use my life experience as an example showing the growth in mindset and life outlook, how I got there, and the benefits and transformation I've seen first hand in myself as well as others. I've found a home with this type of content and include it in all areas of my coaching, teaching, and training. It's become an important part of my growth as a person and provider for the vo industry. I will provide slides with various tips for mindfulness, meditation, and personal growth and development (don't have prepared yet, but will include for breakout session). Life is difficult, voiceover is difficult, and both are mentally taxing. Learning how we can mentally prepare ourselves for success in life, and in turn voiceover, is imperative!
