In an earlier episode, we discussed the Law of Vacuum and how to make space for new opportunities. Once we make space, we can take action to accomplish our goals, which is also known as the Universal Law of Inspired Action. Each inspired step we take, large or small, can take us closer to our desired outcomes. Listen and find out how Anne and Pam have applied these concepts to help grow their respective businesses, and how you can develop a success mindset to move your business forward.
Quick Concepts from Today’s Episode:
Like attracts like
As creatives, are we not the hardest on ourselves?
We are so hard on ourselves, and think, “I can’t do that” – but remember, you get exactly what you think.
Your intuition is there for a reason. It’s your internal GPS.
Set your sights on what you want to have in your business.
Once you make space, you can take inspired action.
Align your vibration to help attract things that you desire.
Be clear about what you want in your life and your business.
Our thoughts become words, and words become actions.

>> It’s time to take your business to the next level, the BOSS level! These are the premier business owner strategies and successes being utilized by the industry’s top talent today. Rock your business like a BOSS, a VO BOSS. Now let’s welcome your host Anne Ganguzza.
Anne: Hey everyone, welcome to the VO BOSS podcast. I’m your host Anne Ganguzza, along with my amazing special guest cohost Ms. Pamela Muldoon. Hey Pamela, how are you?
Pamela: Woo! The crowd goes wild, Anne. [laughs]
Pamela: I’m great. I’m fantastic.
Anne: So you know, Pam, in an earlier episode, we talked about this really cool universal law called the law of vacuum.
Pamela: We did.
Anne: Where if there’s an empty space, the universe wants to fill it. So I’ve decided [laughs] I would like to intentionally [laughs] set my sights on something, to fill it with something that will serve me and my business.
Pamela: Absolutely. Yes, yeah, we talked about using our time with more intention and putting activities in that either move our business or our life or both forward.
Anne: Yeah, and of course we introduced this 30-day challenge.
Anne: And so we were, we were needing to really fill that void with something that will grow our business.
Pamela: [laughs] Yes, and for some reason I felt filling the void with Facebook livestreams. What the heck was I thinking? [laughs]
Anne: I was filling the void with really concentrating on my blog.
Anne: And so I have been able to get out blog articles now that I’ve made that intention and I’ve fulfilled my 30 minutes a day, I’m going to do my blog. I have to say, I got a couple of blogs out, and I have never had a better reception to my blogs. I’ve had people email me. I’ve had comments about how inspired they were about one of my last blogs called “An Interview with Mrs. C,” which was my high school English honors teacher. And how I related my relationship with her in what I do presently is in coaching and doing e-learning projects. And it was just such a cool article, and it was the hardest one for me to write. And you know why?
Anne: Pam? Because she’s my English teacher. So I was afraid I was going to like –
Pamela: No bad grammar.
Anne: – make a punctuation error, it was going to be bad grammar. And I thought, I could just see the red pen coming out.
Anne: And so I kept procrastinating. I mean, I interviewed her a few months back, and I kept procrastinating the writing of the blog because I was like, I was nervous. But I was like no, I have to honor this conversation that I had with her because number one, I was so honored that she would even have a conversation and be up for the notion of being interviewed, and it just worked out to be really great all the way around. I feel that the fact that I wanted to do this blog, and I was inspired to do this blog, I figure that filling the void of the vacuum with that, there is also a universal law about law of inspired action. Maybe we should talk about that.
Pamela: Yes. I would love to. I think this is a great example. And I love that you’re getting such positive results from it, not only from your audience but personally, because it also – there’s this alignment feeling we have when we’re doing things that feel right. Just feels good. It’s kind of – you know, one of my favorite life and business coaches I’ve worked with often reminds me, it’s not supposed to be hard.
Pamela: So [laughs] when it’s challenging, there’s something out of sync. When it feels easy or inspired, I just love that word, right, when it feels inspired, it flows. Right? We’ve all had moments like that, but I don’t know if we pay attention enough to that moment to really go “wow, that was really cool. I want more of that.”
Anne: So like I think this might be talking about two laws working together or maybe three, right? Because I think the law of attraction is to set your sights on –
Anne: – something that you want and align your vibration, at least that’s what some people say, to align their vibration. That’s what I like to think of it. I remember, gosh, all my life, I’ve kind of been practicing that, but I didn’t realize that it was called the law of attraction.
Anne: Back in college, okay, going, stemming from my high school days, I was cocky, I was just a little, yeah.
Pamela: You were confident.
Anne: Okay, I was confident, I was a little confident. I think maybe a lot of creatives might share that with me.
Anne: I was confident with my English teacher, if you read my article. It was all about, you know, I was like I don’t need this class. I’m good. I don’t need to do the homework [laughs] you know. And it was just really obnoxious of me. And I really much credit and kudos and honor to my English teacher. But I remember in college too, me and my girlfriend would always say, well, we always get what we want when we want it, and so I think that was trying to align ourselves to what we wanted. I believe that that’s now the law of attraction. Is that correct?
Pamela: Yeah, it very much is in line with this law of attraction. And I know over the last probably 15 years, this law has gotten a lot of attention, right, and sometimes negative, sometimes positive. It depends how you’re reading into it. But I think the important part there is you really are understanding and being very clear in what you want. It’s this idea that like attracts like. If you look around at your friends, you tend to gravitate towards that, which is similar or like. I mean that’s a natural thing that we do.
Pamela: Well, we have the ability to attract things into our lives based on I do believe our thoughts become words, and our words become actions. And therefore you get what you literally ask for. [laughs]
Anne: Seems to be paralleling a Facebook post. Right? Like begets like.
Pamela: But it’s very, like it’s those words in our head. And think about this as a voice actor or anybody in the creative arts. Are we not the hardest on ourselves? I mean seriously, the words – I know you’ve written and spoken about this in the past, the imposter syndrome, you know, things like that. I’m guilty of it. I’ve been working through this for about 40 plus years. I don’t think [laughs] it’s not like, this is, I don’t know if it ever ends, but we’re so hard on ourselves. We listen, we listen to our auditions, or we look at a spec, or you know, a list of specs – “ugh, I can do that. That’s not me.” Well, you get exactly what you think. Right? It’s that whole combination of if you really believe it, that’s exactly what you’re going to experience. Does that make sense?
Anne: Totally, absolutely.
Anne: And I think if we’re going to put this in the performance perspective –
Anne: – of our voiceover careers, I think we all know, we all feel like when we’re aligned with the script and when we’ve really nailed it – now does it necessarily mean that we’re going to get the job? Because we can nail many scripts without necessarily getting the job. But I think it’s always very intuitive and very – it’s very much an emotion fuel based thing when we nail a script. We’re like, “I don’t even know what I did, but I nailed it.” It’s more of a feeling that comes to –
Pamela: It’s that inspired flow. Right? Yeah.
