Not everyone gets to do what they love for a living. I am grateful to be one of those who does. I love, I mean I truly and deeply love narrating stories for my clients. It doesn’t matter if it’s the most dry treatise on contraindications for a medication or a ripping good episode from the history of the Civil War. I love it all.
The other day I was thinking about this very subject in the back of my mind while I was narrating a long eLearning project on various kinds of concrete pavement techniques. As I was sitting in my studio, taking a swallow of water in between paragraphs of this material that, honestly, isn’t the most gripping story ever written, I actually reached over and pinched my arm just to make sure I wasn’t dreaming. I can hardly believe I get to do what I love so much and get paid for it. But I do. And if you’re working in voiceover on a regular basis, I hope you feel the same way.
Truly, voiceover is way better than working for a living!
