Today you are being introduced to Sandra Johnson of Sandra Johnson Voice over! Yes, voice over…a little background. Sandra is the producer of 2 of my Anthologies, our journey together during our project gave me more insight to the voice production world. I am honored to introduce her to you and how she is changing the narrative with her work!
Sandra Johnson offers a full range of voice over services including Audiobooks, Commercials, Narration, Explainer Videos, IVR, Voicemail and Documentaries.
Sandra’s Why: “I have always loved the arts be it music, theater or visual. I have an appreciation for the craft of acting. It is also quite fun! I enjoy being behind the mic. Many have said I have a great voice. My time is now! There comes a time when you can no longer be a bystander. Standing up and taking the plunge, despite fear; jump starts new adventures.”
What are 3 things you feel every business owner should know?
One, it’s a numbers game
Two, customer service is a way of life
Three, plan for rainy days
What has been the hardest part about running your Business/Brand/Vision?
I continue to work full-time so time management is priority. This industry is a marathon not a sprint. I am willing to learn and adapt to new experiences.
Tell us a secret fact about you
A well-known secret is I am a Prince fan. He was not just the ‘baddest’ musician on the planet. I admire him for many things. I particularly loved that he unapologetically owned his brand. A complete package of not only music; his personal style is unmatched. I want to achieve similar expertise in my brand management.
If you could have anything in the world what would it be?
Good health. I am blessed beyond measure to be a part of a loving family that has aged well. I pray for the same good health favor.
How you are intentionally changing the narrative?
My slogan is The Voice You Want To Hear. My vibe is all about connection. I want the audience to hear warmth, energy, passion or relaxation. I aspire for a smile, tear, grin, frown or a laugh.
I am inspired….
I am inspired by birds. Birds do not sit still. They hunt, nurse, nest, build, and fly unencumbered by physical space.
What brings your peace?
Prayer, meditation and good food. Plus, the laughter of children.
Mental Health is invaluable…I asked,
What do you do to keep a healthy mental health?
I keep healthy mental health through prayer and meditation. Prayer connects me with my God, my Source. Meditation helps me to refocus my energy and thoughts. I gain positive feelings, empathy and can reduce anger.
How do you deal with challenges?
First, I stop and breathe. I analyze and divide the challenge into smaller pieces. Than tackle one at a time.
How do you deal with grief?
Prayer and meditation. I must come to terms with the loss. I recognize this may take time. I like to journal to release the emotions onto paper.
What is your favorite part and worst part of what you do?
My favorite is recording. Bringing words to life. Also having the chance to express and act! Any opportunity I have behind the mic is thrilling! Expressing the writer’s words to captivate the audience.
The worst? Acting is marathon, sometimes a ton of auditions but few are won. I will, though, enjoy the ride.
If you could tell your 20 year old self anything, what would it be?
Take the time to know you and recognize your worth. You can achieve your dreams.
Sandra found a greatness she found simply by being…I asked her, What is great about your journey in this work?
“I have no previous work experience in the arts! My expertise is in delivery, concentration, love for the arts, and emotional range. I believe that I take direction well. I have the skill of concentration. Narrating audiobooks requires constantly staying focused and in character. I love classic Hollywood films! Acting skill is in the forefront of these films. I watch and learn from their work. I am not self-conscious about my emotions. The listener can only hear my voice; not see my face or body. So, I must deliver all energy and emotions through my voice. What an awesome opportunity!”
