This book was a godsend, really.
I was introduced to VOGenesis by my friend Vanessa, who had gotten retrenched together with me recently. It was a horrible period for me. I'd wanted to quit my desk job for years, but never really had the gumption to do so because I didn't have any backup plans, nor enough savings to tide me over for a period of unemployment. In the end the retrenchment came as a complete shock to me as I had been an employee there for years; same goes for Vanessa! I felt hurt and rejected — useless, even.
Even though I dutifully sent out my resume to numerous companies in my field, my heart wasn't really in it. Perhaps it was evident in my cover letter because not a single suitable company responded to my emails. I began to spiral into despair at the thought of getting stuck in yet another dead-end desk job, yet I couldn't stop applying for exactly the same job because that was the only kind of job I knew.
But things began to turn around after I found VOGenesis. I can't thank Vanessa enough for telling me about it! It's a guide that teaches you the absolute basics of how to make money being a voiceover artist, delving into specific details and steps to optimize your voiceover career.
I never thought that I could make money off something that was just given to me since birth! My voice was an untapped asset that allowed me to work flexible hours, earn an income without leaving the comfort of my home, and most importantly, I didn't have to sit at a desk staring at a computer screen for 9 hours a day! You can't imagine the stress I've managed to keep at bay — gone are the days of backaches and migraines from sitting in the same position day in, day out.
The voiceover industry is also largely underrated, with mostly celebrities dominating the limelight, leading us to believe that only famous people can earn significant amounts of money with voiceovers. But Vanessa proved me wrong. She's been earning a steady income of hundreds each week, and by the end of the month her paychecks in total were more than what she'd been earning for years at our previous company! I was astounded.
Of course, it's not all magic and fairy dust; she still had to work for it. However, the work is simply so much easier and infinitely more enjoyable than her boring old desk job! Seeing her so happy and content made me check out the book for myself and am I ever glad I did. The book not only taught me how to set up my own equipment within my minuscule budget, it also revealed to me just how huge the voiceover industry actually is, and even had tips on how to properly take care of my voice.
Since then I've been practicing the instructions in the book regularly and have gotten quite a number of voiceover gigs. I have never been happier in my whole working adult life. It feels wonderful to wake up any time I want, do work at my own leisure, with no boss or superior hovering behind me all the time. VOGenesis was a completely fresh start for me, and I am still amazed at how easy and effective it is!
