On today’s episode, I’ll tell you about my graduation from the Ginger Yoda Dojo and my husband’s new job.
Mentioned in this episode
Sean Pratt, audiobook narrator
After more than a year of being a student, I graduated from Sean Pratt’s audiobook narration program! Another way to say this is that I graduated from the Ginger Yoda Dojo. Sean’s nickname is the Ginger Yoda. He has red hair, and he is a mentor, like Yoda. I’m not sure where the Dojo part came from, but I think it sounds cooler than the word “School.” I didn’t make it up, so I’m going with it.
I completed all 14 lessons of one-on-one training. Sean helped me improve my performance skills and taught me about the business of being an audiobook narrator. Each lesson was part performance training and part business coaching. There was homework. It was very time-consuming and challenging, but I improved.
Sean taught me how to tell a good story, among other things. Because of him, I’m on the roster as narrator for several platforms, including ACX. This means I can produce audiobooks for Audible, among other platforms.
I worked really hard, and Sean was a fantastic coach. (Thank you Sean!)
My husband started his new job this week. He’s working for Amazon. He’s training to be an Operations Manager at the new Amazon Fulfillment Center in Rossford, OH. He likes it, and I’m happy for him!
I’m adjusting to being a stay-at-home Mom again. The kids are kind of back to school. I have to work around their schedule and my husband’s again. I am finishing narrating an e-learning course, and I’m looking forward to an online voiceover conference called VOcation next weekend.
Join me next week for an interview with Dr. Kimber Boothe, a pharmacist entrepreneur, online course creator, coach, and advocate.
