Voiceover acting may be — at least in my mind — one of the most universal side hustles. I mean, almost all of us can speak, right?
My guest this week, Carrie Olsen, assures me there’s a little more to it than that, but also says it’s a business with low startup costs and low barriers to entry.
Carrie went from her first audition to quitting her job in a span of just 4 months. Since then, the freelance artist has done work for big brands like REI, Disneyworld, and AT&T, all while enjoying a location independent lifestyle.
On this call we get in to how Carrie broke into the voiceover business, how she landed her first clients, and how she’s grown her business over the last year and half.
