Nearly ready to reach out to publishers with new samples of my work. Concerned about contract terms. Would like feedback on my branding ideas.
Actions I’ve taken so far
Business plan >100 pages plus supporting spreadsheets. Updating my website. Learning to use my new equipment, obtained by a vocational rehabilitation grant. Networking with many (hundreds?) audiobook narrators. Listening to audiobook publishers talk about what they're looking for. Preparing my 2021 income tax return. Interacting with a business consultant.
My future goals
Record audiobooks, samples, and auditions daily for professional rates as a member of the SAG/AFTRA union. Earn enough to feel more financially secure so we can move to a place where we will feel like we're part of a community.
My motivations to work with a mentor
Let's put our heads together to see how we can make this happen! Share this adventure with me!
About my venture
