Earlier this year, I had the great privilege to be interviewed by Dr. Amanda Crowell for her podcast Unleashing Your Great Work… The podcast is available on all platforms. Hope you can take a listen!
Show Title: How A Career Reboot Can Make You Feel More Alive with Amy Bermudez
Aired on February 21, 2023
During my chat with Amanda, we talked about the following:
- How the chaos of the pandemic created an opportunity for reinvention
- How believing in myself has resolved a life-long worry that I wasn’t “good enough” to do what I love
- How voiceover artistry has given me the creative outlet I yearned for
- How interesting and rewarding I finds my new work, and how excited I am for the future.
In December 2019, I was feeling unsatisfied with my job. I was working in an industry I had fallen out of love with, for people who stressed me out, doing work that was… fine. I wanted more, but wasn’t sure what that “more” was.
In a chance encounter with a relative, I learned about voiceover. I signed up for a course, enjoyed what I learned and began to wonder: is voiceover right for me? Then, in March 2020, the world shut down for the COVID-19 pandemic, and in response, the company I had been working for shut its doors completely.
Newly unemployed in a world that had changed overnight, my mind wandered to voiceover. Could this be my chance to try something new? I decided to give it a real shot. Over the course of the past few years, I launched my fledgling voiceover business from scratch, and it has changed my life.
In our discussion during the podcast, I told Amanda, “allowing myself to do the thing I wanted to do has been amazing. I feel more alive.”
I hope you have an opportunity to hear this podcast, and I hope it inspires you to have courage when facing life’s big transitions.
