Supporting Your VO and Acting Habit
Getting started and continuing to grow your VO and/or practice is a challenge.
And yet, there’s a drive in all of us to achieve the goal of a thriving career. But how do you support that career in the days, weeks and months before you can make a living doing VO and acting, without it taking over your life, and your eye off the survival ball?
I’ve got some help for you.
It’s all about having a little side business, and being careful about your cash flow.
I’ve gone on and on and on in class and at actor/VO support meetings about my friend Kristine Oller – she’s that important to me as one of my advisors. And she’s created a really fantastic program designed to help you immediately. It’s called Cashflow for Creatives: How To Make Some Extra Money While Your Career Gets Off The Ground , and I thought you might like to know about it.
I don’t get any spiff if you click the link below to go check it out – but I guarantee you that you’ll learn something that will change your life.
That’s what Kristine has done for me.
Here’s your challenge: succeeding as an actor or a voice over artist – especially in LA – requires that you somehow figure out how to maintain a flexible schedule and a solid source of income.
Here’s my solution: Cashflow For Creatives is the ONLY how-to course designed specifically to teach actors and voice over artists how to create and run a profitable side biz to fund your artistic pursuits – AND it is taught by someone who did exactly that.
Kristine Oller built her own side biz from scratch, ditched her day job, and was able to support herself with a completely flexible schedule throughout the decade that she was working as an actor.
She has since helped dozens of actors start new little side businesses (or take the ones they had and make them even more profitable).
This is life-changing info, taught by someone who truly wants actors to thrive.
All the details are right here:
I can’t recommend Kristine (and anything she does) highly enough. You may even know her from The Actors’ Network, where she was my Power Group leader for years.
Again – this is the kind of thing that can help you maintain your persistence and dedication – not being stressed about money. Do check it out.
What kind of financial safety do you have…or do you want? Do you feel financially safe, enough to pursue a VO and acting career? Or do you need help? Let me know in the comments below.
Hope this helps.
Thanks David! The Supporting Your VO and Acting Habit and Kristine Oller’s advice caught me at a wierd transitional moment, I needed to hear this.
i LOVE me some kristine oller. everything she does, says, and offers (products and advice) is top notch. your little side biz is no exception… excellent recommendation.
Wow, and I just spent the first hour of my morning looking for a new survival job. I needed this!
Greetings, David. Your post is timely and relates to many in our industry. Seriously.
I will pass this on to Patti B to add to our list of “monthly topics”.
And of course, I disagree with you and/or Ms. Oller on a few basic points….based on my own experience.
Nevertheless, this is a relevant issue. I will click on the link soon to learn more, absolutely.
Enjoy a holiday with your family. Till next.
I’m kind of at the other end of the journey. I’m getting ready to “retire,” but only from the soul-sucking I.T. work that has made it possible for me to get to debt-free and within a short reach of retirement. My goal is to generate enough income to pay for my health insurance while I defer taking funds from my IRA savings as long as possible. But I have to be doing something I love! This may just be the best answer. Thanks!
