I began my journey back in December 2018 with the idea of fulfilling a childhood dream of being behind the mic and broadcasting my voice out there for people to enjoy. It had been on my mind for some years and I needed to get this going before I considered myself too old to get started.
So in June of 2019 after much research into how to actually build a soundproof recording booth and having figured out how to video, edit and upload the procedure, I paid my first bit of money and ordered the parts to get started.
After four months of part-time blood, sweat and cheers, I reached the first target of having a space to record in with professional quality equipment. This was so awesome!
Next was to get trained. I considered this imperative as a first step into any business if you intend to do it at a high, professional standard. So I had to look for a coach.
I soon found out that there are a lot of coaches out there so it became difficult to decide, who I should do this with? What did I want to achieve? Goals are very important.
I decided to seek advice from a voice actor who I had come across on Youtube and who four years after making his first videos of his journey, was now a successful games and animation voice actor. This was Jay Britton who over the course of a few lessons gave me some really appropriate business advice and direction for coaching.
I took his advice and since then I have been getting coached by Tanya Rich and Nancy Wolfson. Both well-respected peers in the industry. And so my journey continues.
