Hey everyone! New user here, but very familiar with the service.
I guess this is a mix between an informative first post and a small cry for help:
Since a young age, I’ve been very passionate about acting, but most specifically — voice acting. I love the arts, and I’ve done a good bit of writing as well, but the world of voice over has been my true calling (especially with character voices).
I really wish I’d have gotten into this in high school, but I’m still very young (22), and dissatisfied with how my life is going: 9-5 work, not much money, and huge dreams. I’m really just glad I’m acting on it now instead of later - so that’s good.
Bottom line, I’m working to get this to be a major source of income; and Fiverr isn’t my only freelance site: I’m also active on ******and *****.
So the problem: I’ve been active on at least one of these sites for almost a month now, and I’ve managed to land my first and only gig - an audiobook; which should be done soon. Other than that, I’m tapped for work — despite the daily auditions and proposals I send to various clients. It’s a grind, I know. But I want to make sure I’m not doing things wrong.
But if I’m not, and just need to keep trying, then so be it. I’m not one of those people who gripes and moans about not getting work — especially if that work deals with my dream career.
My only request is to have someone here who is experienced in this field to review me, and even guide me to improve my outcome here. This is still a very recent venture, so I still have lots of time to improve.
Thanks for any support you guys leave me
