Raising my voice for your cause...

And Now, a WOSB

Heidi in Alaska So after many many years workig for others, I am making another entrepreneurship. In buisness for myself - small business, yes, but my business.

I’m transitioning from working outside the home, to working in the studio in my home.  There are challenges: for example, I’m a very social being.  I love people and social interaction is very important.  I've learned that I need to get out of the house, even if it's just to go to Starbucks and sit with my lap top.
Just the simple act of leaving the house is helpful.  I make myself get out of bed and go for a 3 mile run most mornings to start my day.  That not only keeps me moving, but it's kind of therapeutic, too.  I find that if I stay in the house too long, it's easy for the day to just kind of get away from me.  So it's weird and challenging. 

I think in many ways working for someone else is easier than working for yourself.  But I think working for yourself is or can be more rewarding.  Ya gotta love those flexible hours! I try to structure my days and that's helpful. I'll make a coffee date or appointment, but I try not to over commit.  I have to make a real effort to make sure I leave myself plenty of hours to work on my voiceover work.  So I've learned to prioritize. What do I need/want to accomplish today? 

The work itself is really fun.   Having a studio set up inside my home and being able to sit down in front of a  mic with my hair up in a baseball hat and slippers on my feet - isn't a bad way to go!  I love voiceover.

After all these years, I still get a thrill from making the mic come alive. And now I do it as a WOSB - a Woman Owned Small Business!
