Jennifer recorded 50 books with sixteen different publishers
within her first two years of narrating!

"If you’re thinking about getting into audiobook narration you just simply need to start working with Elise Arsenault and join The Great Audiobook Adventure™! You will learn everything you need to know to get started and you’ll get the support you need.

I was all in. I did every module, I did the homework, I followed every step and I built my home studio. I recorded a demo and I started following up with publishers. Within maybe 2 months of reaching out to publishers, I booked my first audiobook!”

Kim is the narrator of over 80 audiobooks
since starting her Adventure!!
 

Kim Niemi

"Before taking the plunge and working with Elise, I was feeling scattered about which goals to pursue and how to focus my efforts with two “day jobs” sucking up a lot of time and energy. I was throwing a lot of spaghetti at the wall in the hope that anything would stick.  

With my goal of breaking in to the audiobook industry, Elise worked with me on the various technical aspects I needed to understand and perfect – from ways to use the training I already had as an actor, to new and specific skills needed as a narrator. Through my work with her I refined that technique, figured out which genres I was best suited to, made a demo, and crafted reach-out letters. The beautiful thing about Elise is her generosity in not just helping you be ready, but in sharing her contacts. I booked my first audiobook through one of her referrals and am about to record my third audiobook (that's 3 in three months!). [Kim is now at 45 audiobooks and counting!]

None of this would have happened without Elise. It’s not just that she provides structure and accountability – she becomes your champion. She genuinely wants to see you succeed. She’s helped me feel powerful and confident – and I know it’s only a matter of time before my dream of saying goodbye to my day jobs and making 100% of my income as an actor becomes a reality."

Eric feels Supported, Validated, Connected + is WORKING! 

"If I had not been made aware of and then took the step to work with Elise, I would not be in the position I am in now. For the first time in my life, I am a working voice actor, having just signed on to voice three audiobooks for a local publisher. Next week I'll be recording a video game demo with a world renowned demo producer. Neither of these things would have happened had I not been working with Elise. I have worked with other business coaches and marketing coaches over the past 4 years or so and literally nothing changed. There was no forward movement. I'm not saying their techniques won't work for anyone, but they didn't work for me. Elise brought support, validation, connection and real concrete "Go and do THIS" instructions that were actionable, logical and showed measurable results. Working with Elise has made a huge difference."

What Actors Are Saying:

Jade Wheeler

Dani Gonzalez


"Just over a year ago, I felt stagnant and scattered in my acting career. Working with Elise was a complete game-changer for me. It gave me the focus and direction I needed to get organized, grow my network and begin to understand exactly what was in my control. It’s been one year since beginning the journey with Elise and in addition to celebrating reaching my one-year audiobook goal this week, I have also gained the confidence and perspective to let things flow. I now understand how to create buzz for my career and I can’t wait to set my next goal & attain it! I wouldn’t have known where to start if it were not for Elise &The Global Actor." 

- Callie Beaulieu (Hartford Stage, Narrator of over 100 audiobooks)


"I am ever so grateful to Elise for encouraging me to pursue recording audiobooks as a viable employment option as an actor. It was Elise who first recognized that I could and should narrate - something I had always wanted to do, but thought would be an impossible market to crack, or at the very least difficult to get in the door to audition for. Elise laid out the process for submitting, shared contacts and 6 months later I got a call to record my first book. Elise is not only a generous person and a professional business coach, her creativity as an artist is contagious. I use a phrase I’ve heard others say that describes what Elise did. It’s called 'sending the elevator back down' so you bring people up with you. I'm inspired to do the same with my resources. Thanks Elise for paving a path!" ​ ​- Celeste Oliva ​(SMILF, Castle Rock, Bleed for This)


"Looking back, I am so proud of what was achieved [in my work with Elise] over the course of 5 months. Through [her] guidance and network, I recorded my first audiobook for a major publisher and have continued growing my industry relationships. I cannot wait to gain even more results!"

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

We've got A's for your Q's

Do I have to be an actor?

No! While acting training and experience is helpful to audiobook narration, as long as you have the willingness to learn and the persistence to keep going we provide you with tools to begin building your craft.

Does my location matter?

No! You can do this work from anywhere. That’s the point!

How much do I have to participate?

As much as possible. Participation in the course is up to you, but you will not succeed in building a narration career if you don't actively take steps to make it happen. Showing up is 90%.

What kind of equipment do you need to begin this training and what would be the cost for the equipment required to get started?

The equipment you have right now may be all you need to complete the course. That said, there are a few non-negotiables you’ll need to acquire to work competitively across the industry. We cover all necessary equipment and how to acquire it as soon as you join the course and do our best to help you get started on any budget.

Once you join, we’ll start coaching you through building a DIY home studio. We want you to get working as soon as possible so you can re-invest this initial investment in yourself as you build your career. Start thinking scrappy and being brave!

What is the investment for the course? As a creative, every dollar adds up?

The Great Audiobook Adventure™ may be just the investment to get you in charge of your future! This is the process that helped me make a mid-five figure income as an actor. Most folks who follow the entire course make their investment back soon after they've completed and implemented all the training.

Enrollment in the course is one payment of $997. We offer an installment plan of 6 payments of $199.99 each on a monthly billing schedule.

We have also partnered with Klarna, Affirm and afterpay, where you can explore alternative payment plans. For more information, click here.

Your first payment is due when you enroll.

How long does it take to get through the course and start working?

This really depends on the student - acting training, current sound equipment (if any), and mainly motivation, focus and follow-through. We have accountability built in throughout the course to help you effectively move through the training and really get to work within months if you are highly motivated.

In the intro class, you saw the success stories of Jennifer (with a ton of paid acting experience already under her belt) and Terry (no acting experience before the course). They both began working consistently with publishers a few months after completing the coursework involving publisher reach outs.

How difficult is it to connect with publishers to get work? What kind of annual income can one hope to make as an audiobook narrator?

We don’t think it’s difficult to connect with publishers. We give you a complete roadmap inside the course on how to effectively reach out and follow through.


As for annual income, it depends on how many books you want to narrate per year, or we might want to break that down into finished hours of recording. We can answer this question as it pertains to you in a coaching call within the course but in general, narrators who work consistently make ballpark $20,000-60,000 USD per year.  

Can I take some time to decide? How long is this available?

The current bonuses expire on the date listed here.

While enrollment in the course opens up periodically throughout the year, if you are motivated to join now, we encourage you to do so as we cannot guarantee this price at the next enrollment period.

Is this a self-paced course or is there a schedule to follow?

The course modules are entirely self-paced, so you can go through them on your own schedule.

That said, we do offer you guidance during your first 6 months to help you dive into the training.

We provide weekly emails to introduce you to each Chapter and a place on Facebook for you to get optional accountability and kudos for completing actions, but no one is checking your "homework". :)


We offer 12 Q+A Group Calls during your first 6 months of the course - 6 with Elise for craft and relationship development and 6 with Justin for tech. Each call is two hours long and held over Zoom the same time each month.

These calls are held during the business day, but don't worry if you're unable to attend live. We have a form for you to submit your questions ahead of time, and it will be answered on the call. Everyone is sent a replay of the call after to watch at their convenience.

What is your refund policy?

In accordance with AB1319, you may cancel enrollment and obtain a full refund, without any penalty or obligation, if notice of cancellation is given, in writing (i.e. via email), within 10 business days from the date of purchase. After such date, all sales are final.

If you select a payment plan, you're responsible for the full payment plan, regardless of your participation or use of course materials.

Full terms of purchase can be read here.
