Getting Voice Over Gigs In Today's Economy

By Stephanie Ciccarelli

Laptop computer with money coming out of it

One of the benefits of using Twitter (you can find me here) is that you know about something quickly even before other major outlets pick up the news.

Today was no exception as I read a tweet posted by my friend Alison Pitman this morning, a voice over professional in the UK, directing me to a timely blog post she wrote raising a number of very interesting questions that warrant further debate.

Also, a couple of weeks ago I happened to be reading another friend's blog, David Bourgeois from Voice Coaches, and he wrote some commentary that I think you'll find uplifting regarding how you can make strides to push through times of difficulty as an entrepreneur.

How is the economy affecting your voice over business?

Click here to read more on what Alison and David are thinking as well as some commentary from yours truly.

Once finished, I invite you to comment with your thoughts :)
