Hello Fastlaners! I hope everyone had a great thanksgiving. My name is Dre and I’m a 24 year old beginning entrepreneur. I’m excited to be apart of this forum. I’ve read both books and i honestly believe they should be mandated in public schools. A little about me and my enterprenurial journey....

While in college I got my first job at In-n-out burger (where I currently still work). This is where I got inspired to start my business. Working there I would hear customers tell me “you have a great voice” at least 3 times a day.” I let this go over my head for two years until I read TMF. After a little research, I discovered I could make a great living doing commercial voiceovers. I also discovered some of these jobs pay residuals for each time the commercial is played ! Perfect way to divorce money from time! What better way to add value to the world with a god given gift! I am now at the beginning of my voiceover career, and if interested I would love to share my journey with you all as I love learning from other fastlaners and entrepreneurs!

Voice overs are extremely powerful for video presentations. I just hired a couple on fiverr this week!
Instead of a video with text explanation, graphics and some background music, you've this Hollywood-sounding convincing voice take over the video and it makes the result so professional. :thumbsup:

Voiceover is a great way to spread a message for a product or service! If you need one in the future, please let me know !

Welcome Dre!

I agree but it would probably never happen as the curriculums are dictated by people who have colleges best interest in mind not the students. And especially since entrepreneurship is viewed as super risky and outlier in nature.

While in college I got my first job at In-n-out burger (where I currently still work).
Strong work, every time I see the In-n-Out employees I feel I'm looking at future successes.

Working there I would hear customers tell me “you have a great voice” at least 3 times a day.”
Voiceover work for audiobooks (ACX.com) could be a good start. And some of the work has a residual component.

Welcome aboard Dre!

Thanks MJ! It’s a great place for beginning Entrepreneurs to learn how business works and develop a strong work ethic.
Also I’ve just recently started working on ACX. Starting to gain some traction

Another resource people use to find voiceovers is voice jockey. Might be worth setting up an account there as well.

It's actually a really great thing to get into for a business minded person because it's very much less about show business and more about personal accountability, and putting in the work, doing marketing, etc. It can teach you a lot.

I found this great video, you should watch it.

Also check out Booth Junkie on YouTube as well, for all sorts of tips for getting started regarding equipment, software, etc.

Best of luck!!!
