BOSS Mindset – Too Old For VO?

Anne and Gabby have both gotten tons of questions from students looking for a new or second career. A popular one is… “Am I Too Old for VO?” You may have wondered the same thing or are worried if there’s a certain age that you’ll have to “retire”. Well, the bosses are here to give their two cents and share what trends they’re seeing in the vo industry related to age.


Quick Concepts from Today’s Episode:

  1. Consider the market you’re going for

  2. Be realistic. Your age could play a factor in what you’re cast for.

  3. You need to understand technology to flourish, but if you don’t you can always hire someone!

  4. Your actual age and vocal age could be WAY off!

  5. Your voice does change

  6. You can be a boss at any age!

  7. Chances are some of your previous work skills can apply to VO

  8. If this is a side thing for you, then it might not be worth it.

Anne: Hey, guys. Before we get started on today’s episode, we want to share some bossolutions. We have a brand-new product in our BOSS shop called Book-Out Build. I’m super excited about this concept. Gabby, tell us a little bit about this.

Gabby: This is how I communicate with my clients every single month to make sure that I am providing them with relevant information that they can actually use, and so that I’m not just, you know, spamming them or sending them something really annoying, right, because we all have to worry about that.

Anne: [laughs]

Gabby: And we’re offering it to everyone now. And these are Book-Out Builds. So with a Book-out Build, what you’re able to set up a system whereby you can communicate with clients on a regular basis about the number one they want to know about you, your availability and bookout dates in the studio.

Anne: Great stuff. And you can do this on a monthly basis or a quarterly basis. What’s really cool is that we incorporate your own list, and we manage it and send out the marketing blast on your behalf, all in your own brand.

Gabby: You want to go to, click on Shop, and go check out the Book-Out Build and Book-Out Blast features.

Anne: Ok now, let’s get on with today’s episode. Welcome, everybody, to the VO BOSS podcast. I’m your host Anne Ganguzza along with my VO BOSS bestie, Gabby Nistico. Hey, Gabby, how are you?
