Introducing The Voice Over Business Success
eCourse - Videos, Worksheets & Online Workshops
April 1, 2014

By John Florian

I met Ron Minatrea (pictured) at the first VO Atlanta conference, in 2013, when he visited the VoiceOverXtra booth to watch a demo of our upcoming Voice Over Virtual online conference.

A voice actor and professional business coach, Ron was hooked by the VO Virtual concept, and to my delight, created a fabulous video that became a highlight of the event: How To Create A Business Action Plan.

Many unsolicited comments poured in to Ron (some of them are reprinted below). And this video success got us thinking ...

Voice actors like to focus on voice acting. Obviously.

But to really succeed they need to focus on business, as well. Neglect the business side and you're eventually out of business.

So to help with that, we thought about creating a wide-ranging online eCourse that details successful business planning, actions, organization, workflow and more. And now we've done just that. Introducing VoiceOverXtra's ...

Voice Over Business Success eCourse
... for voice actors who want to treat VO as a business.


The eCourse features two unique live online workshops (webinar format), where Ron will detail VO-specific business processes and answer questions. The two-part webinars are on April 29 and May 1.

Enroute to the webinars, each Tuesday we will post a free video and worksheet for the entire VO community to enjoy. These are packed with information and will help webinar registrants prepare in advance for the hands-on online workshops.

Watch the free videos, work the worksheets, and learn!

Here's Video #1: Aspirations. And below that is a link to Worksheet #1 ...

Oh - and about Ron's acclaimed video, How To Create A Business Action Plan ... we're offering that as a free immediate download bonus for workshop registrations received by April 11 (see the bonus video testimonials below).

Tuition for the two online workshops is just $79 - including recordings of each workshop and the bonus video (if registered by April 11).


Ron Minatrea's VO Virtual video, How To Create A Business Action Plan, drew rave reviews for its thorough yet engaging information and style (which you can expect to continue in Ron's weekly videos and the online workshops) ...
