    Stay at Home Mom to Full Time Voice Actor with Jennifer Clark

    Stay at Home Mom to Full Time Voice Actor with Jennifer Clark

    At the beginning of 2020, Jennifer Clark was a stay-at-home mom with a dream to do voice over. A week before the pandemic hit, she booked her first paid voice over job.
    Things moved quickly from there. More jobs. Big clients. Respected brands. Award nominations.
    Along the way, one particular practice has been important to Jennifer, and it's the main reason I wanted to bring her on the show. 
    Jennifer has a #HappyJar, and by the time you're done listening to this conversation, I know you'll have one too.

    From Part Time to Full Time VO Through Outsourcing with Bryson Carr

    From Part Time to Full Time VO Through Outsourcing with Bryson Carr

    For many voice actors, the dream and goal is to turn a part-time passion into a full-time career. That can be a challenge when you've only got limited time to devote to your voice over business though.
    For Bryson Carr, the solution was outsourcing. With a limited number of hours to give to voice over because of a day job, outsourcing aspects of his business to a virtual assistant allowed him to get more done and grow faster.
    Be inspired by his story, and take some notes because the same thing may be the solution you've been looking for!

    What Every Voice Actor Needs to Know About A.I. with NAVA

    What Every Voice Actor Needs to Know About A.I. with NAVA

    A.I. isn't coming to the voice over industry. It's already here. The challenge for voice actors now is, how will we engage and respond as a community and industry.
    One of the organizations speaking on our behalf is NAVA (National Association of Voice Actors). They are deeply engrained in numerous conversations including with SAG/Aftra and various levels of government
    In this wide-ranging interview, I speak with Tim Friedlander (NAVA Founder and President) and Carin Gilfry (NAVA Co-Founder and Vice President). We dive into what NAVA is doing, what voice actors need to know and understand about A.I. in our industry and also, how we, as a voice acting community can support NAVA in their ongoing efforts.
