They joke that in LA everyone is a hyphen.

Uber driver hyphen actor. Waiter hyphen actor. Task Rabbit hyphen actor.

They call it the gig economy-that side hustle people do while waiting to be discovered so they can live the life of their dreams.

Back in the day I did my time in the gig economy as a waitress, telemarketer and singer of telegrams for a company in New York city called “Renta-Yenta.”

Fine when you’re a 20-something. But what if you’re a 50-something with dreams of doing voice over in retirement?

You got 5, 10, 15 years to go in your current career with responsibilities, a mortgage and a family to support.

You’re busy but you’ve got your eye on the microphone and you really want to get things going before you retire.

In this week’s Inside Voice Over video training blog I’ll show you how to juggle your day job and your dream job. I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised by what I have to say.
