How to be a parent of a voice-over kid, let's talk. - 3:38

Hey guys, it's Gabby. Thank you for joining me on another episode of The Gift of Gab. So, if you know me, you know a couple things about me. One, I'm not crazy about kids. I tolerate them. Two, I don't teach kids. Three, I don't know. But hey, here's what we're going to do. We're going to talk about kids in voiceover. Stick around.

Hey guys, it's Gabby, and I want to take a moment today to thank my sponsor, Pozotron, a company that I absolutely adore. I went after them, not the other way around. I approached them about coming on board and being part of The Gift of Gab family because I love what they're doing, and I think that their product is incredible. It has this amazing potential to transform the voiceover industry moving forward. If you do anything in the long-form sector, especially audiobooks, then Pozotron is a tool that you absolutely need to be taking advantage of. Check them out at, and if you have any questions or you want to talk to me about how you can better implement Pozotron into your workflow, reach out. Let's do it.

Okay, why am I talking about kids in voiceover when Gabby, you don't work with kids? No, I do not. That is true. But I will work with parents who are wanting to get their kids involved in voiceover because Mom and Dad, if you've got a kiddo and you want to get them into voiceover or they have expressed an interest in voiceover, oh, there is a lot for you to know because you're going to be Mom or right? You're going to be managing with all the behind-the-scenes, the marketing, the selling, the negotiating, the studio content. It's a lot, a lot of stuff. And unfortunately, it's not as easy as one might think.

The other thing about kids' voices is they change frequently, really often, and you have to be prepared for the marketing that's going to go along with that. You also may need to be the one to run, own, and operate a recording studio. Now, that's not as scary as it sounds. It's actually the norm. Typically, most of the kid voiceovers that we hear in this industry are the children of professional working voice actors. But not always. There's plenty of opportunities for kids who are actors in the voiceover world, especially as we're moving more and more into an era where people want an authentic casting experience, and they want actual kids to do kids' voices as opposed to an adult who can sound like a child.

I am here to help you every step of the way from setup, marketing, sales, business tech, you name it, I've got you covered. So, I'm not going to train your kiddo, but I will train you. If you want to connect with me, you can schedule a free 15-minute consult through my website, We can discuss your needs on this journey and put our heads together and make a game plan. I look forward to speaking with you. Take care.
