In May of 2016, six years after I recorded my commercial demo, I was sitting on my couch with my four -week old daughter drifting in and out of sleep when my phone rang. I answered and on the other line was a producer from a studio that I sent my demo to six years ago.
After I cut my demo in 2010 I was totally unprepared for what came next. I really didn't know what I should do with it after that. I sent it to a local recording studio, a podcast a friend told me about and signed up for a casting website or two, but that was about it.
I knew I wanted to pursue voiceover after I took the initial workshop, but knew there was no way I could afford it. I thought my dream would have to wait. But someone suggested to me to ask the coach if I could barter services with her. So, I did just that.
I graduated from college in the spring of 2008. Yup... right when the recession hit. At the time I was working at a preschool and desperately wanted to get out and focus on my career in communications. But... as you know finding a job was tough. It was even harder since I had zero experience.
Wow. I haven't written in blog form for a good... uh... 10 years? Is Blogger still a thing?
