The Business of Voice Over: Doing it the Smart Way

Voice over is a great career! But build it the right way - and avoid the scammers.

Curious about how to get started - and succeed - in voice over? Joe Matz of APEX-able and I sat down recently to talk about the ins and outs of the business of voice over. The key takeaway? Build your new career with the proper training, investment, time, and patience. Short cuts often lead directly to the many scammers out there preying on the hopes and dreams of creative artists.

In this 30 minute interview, Joe and I talk about how I transitioned from a corporate career to being my own boss doing voice overs and on camera work. We covered the essential building blocks that form the foundation of a successful voice acting career and how to go about putting them in place. Finally, I provided a long list of resources that new and aspiring voice actors may find useful, most of which are provided in this Resources section of my blog.

Watch out for the many scammers out there preying on the hopes and dreams of creative artists.

Laura's Quick Tips

  1. Overnight successes are built over 10, 20, or more years - and rarely truly overnight.

  2. Start any new venture with training, just to see if it's the right fit for you.

  3. Never stop investing in yourself or your business.

I firmly believe that none of us is just one thing in life. We play many roles and often enjoy more than one career in our working lives. As long as we're able and willing, we can start a new career or side gig at any age. Just be sure to take the time to understand your new industry and develop your business the smart way with knowledge and patience. Step by step, the benefits will surely come!

Don't just take my word for it! Check out out what some of my voiceover friends have to say.

Congrats on a great interview, Laura! It's nice to hear more of your story from down there in Hotlanta, and I appreciate your knowledge and personality and how you contribute to the arts industries and give back to the community. Thank you! I keep forgetting you come from the business world, but you have to have your feet in both streams in order to be successful. Yours are clearly planted and being watered daily. :-) Thanks for watering us as well!
