Time is running out to watch this free Masterclass!
In this FREE 60-minute training, you will learn the steps I took in order to replace my “day jobs” with the ultimate actor Day Job -- narrating audiobooks. This work has made it possible for me to become the breadwinner in my family, have a flexible income stream I can easily turn up or down as other acting work and audition opportunities come in, and find ease in my acting career -- now thriving, profitable business -- and life -- whatever I dream it to be next. Best part, this actor “day job” is hiring RIGHT NOW, amidst the pandemic, and will serve you beyond this uncertain time.
29 Audiobooks in Her FIRST Year!
"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 26 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."
"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."
"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!"
