There are Gremlins in the world of voice over & they’re loud!

Gremlins aren’t the exclusive domain of the voice over – we all have them! Our minds are busy places, full of noise, pictures & constant chatter. Some of it we’re able to ignore or filter, but sometimes those gremlins lure us into dark places. They encourage us to do battle with…
