I Got My Studio Setup, What Now?
In the voice over world, finding books and tutorials about setup and how to get started are everywhere. Yet, after you have everything setup and you've been working in the industry, where are the books on how to elevate your game? Sure, you could pay hundreds of dollars from a voice over artist who sells their playbook, but when you are working your way up in this industry, hundreds of dollars may be out of the question. This is where Bill DeWees comes in! Bill has written an excellent book called How to Start and Build a 6 Figure Voice Over Business. If you subscribe to Kindle Unlimited, this book is free! What I love about this book is how straight forward it is. He doesn't tell you about a topic and then spend 3 chapters skirting around the topic only to find out that the answer is vague! He discusses the old business model of voice over versus the new model, should you be union or non-union, a little about your studio, he briefly touches on editing, then he dives right into the strategy to build your business.
My favorite thing about this book is that it's an easy read where you feel like you are sitting across from Bill, having coffee while he divulges all his secrets to you. This is not a book about how to get rich quick, it's a book about putting in the time, the dedication and having the determination to make this business work for you. Entrepreneurship is not for everyone, it takes time to build your business, it takes a lot of work, but in the end the rewards can be great! You set your own hours, your own pay (which he talks about in the book), and you decide which clients to work with or not work with. Yet, as dreamy as this sounds, it takes time to build your Empire! What are you waiting for? Stop reading this and go get Bill's book and build your business
