Today's #TopTipTuesday Tip: Take risks, reap rewards!
It's easy to perform "safe" or "standard" voiceover reads. Will they book you the job? Possibly. Possibly not.

Plus, the upside of "going too far," is that you can always dial it back and find an interpretative sweet spot. Reminds me of an old golf maxim about putting: " Never up (to the hole), never in." So here's to giving all your audition "putts" a chance!
