Don't Feed The Naysayer

When you start an exciting journey like voice acting, occasionally, you may run into a couple of naysayers who will attempt to discourage you in the process. Especially on social media! More often than not, they're envious that you're pursuing something you love, while they are stuck in a rut and can't get out of their own way. I had friends like this when I first started out. "You'll have to move to Los Angeles! It's SO competitive! You'll never make it!" I even had a friend who tried to tell me I would fail because I couldn't do impressions.

With social media, it's tough because we're connected with so many people who pretend to know everything about SO MANY things they don't know anything about. Look at news media posts on Facebook. The comment threads are littered with armchair private investigators and Scientists. Most of the time, their opinions are based on what "they've heard."
