    In Becoming an Artist (Part 1 of her Get Clever About Voice Acting & Announcing series), Lili Wexlu shares a wealth of information, tips, and suggestions with new and prospective Voice Actors. With an impressive background as a Voice Actress, VO Coach, and Author, Lili speaks to us with the voice of experience and genuine concern for the reader. From the beginning all the way through to the end of this book, she paints an honest picture of what it means to be a Voice Actor/Announcer (across all VO genres) in the industry today. Having realistic expectations just may be the most important pre-requisite for launching a career in voice acting. In that regard, her unvarnished discussion of the investments in time, training (acting and voice), recording capabilities, business administration, and marketing is invaluable.

    Lili’s in-depth consideration of topics ranging from the actor’s voice and talent to training, auditions, and recording are extraordinarily helpful. And when it comes to the VO genres, Lili’s descriptions are the most informative that ‘ve encountered anywhere.

    Any aspiring voice actors would do well to read this book early in their exploration of the field. It has the very real potential to insure against disappointment/disillusionment and, perhaps, to save money in the long run. For me, the small price of this book pales in comparison to its worth. I appreciate Lili Wexlu sharing her expertise with us.

    I really enjoyed reading Part 1 of Get Clever about VO. I’m a new voiceover artist, and I found Lili’s e-book super helpful and informative. I really appreciated Lili’s honest insights about the industry as well as advice and encouragement for new voiceover artists. I’ve already tried applying some of the things I’ve read from the e-book. I can’t wait to read Part 2! Thanks!

    To quote Cher, “If I could turn back time, I would have read ‘Become A Voice Actor, Voice Acting & Announcing pt.1’ at the very start of my Voice Over career.” Well, maybe not her exact lyrics, but it’s true: this book is full of great advice and I highly recommend it.

    Hey Lili. I purchased the bundle and just finished Part 1 (Get Clever About VO Voice Acting & Announcing). I have to say, I have friends in the industry who’ve told me time and time again how competitive it is. Your approach mentions this as well but you offer encouragement as well. I have 20 years in the music business as a writer and artist. I’ve been recording and working around studios the entire time. While I have concerns that I may not have the professional acting chops or instruction resume, I’m committed and willing to put in the work. Your breakdown of the different sectors was clear and just the overall tone of this first book was spot on. I love that you don’t gloss over the amount of work and commitment that is involved past the point of having a good voice. Thanks so much. Looking forward to Parts II and III

    Very helpful information. The emphasis about needing to be an actor was eye opening to me. Thank you for the insight, Lili.

    I’ve known about Lili Wexu for years. She is a bilingual French Canadian like me. I visited her website again recently, looking for a possible demo coach and happened upon her books. I bought all three and the info contained in them is invaluable. The info is very honest and straight forward. I’m a creative and business/marketing is not my strength, her tips are awesome. I can’t emphasize the importance of reading these books, even if you’ve been a voice actor for a few years. Loved them!

    This first book is a great and detailed overview of what it takes to get started in the voiceover business. Lili takes you through all the skills you’ll need to develop, with the goal of making a successful career in the industry. I really loved the section about progressing in the art of voiceover. So many of us become interested in VO because we’re told we have beautiful voices and think it will be easy, but Lili gives a realistic perspective on the dedication it takes to progress your talent into a viable career and gives you direction on how to do it.

    Lili also includes invaluable information on the relationships you’ll be developing as well as many different sectors you could chose to work in. She not only lists these things, but fully describes how you will interact in these roles.

    All said, this book is an excellent value filled with great information. You could have several sessions with a coach or expert and never receive what Lili has provided in such a well-organized and easily understandable format. I highly recommend this book to anyone with an interest in voiceover!

    Hi Lili! I just finished reading Part 1 (Get Clever About VO Voice Acting & Announcing), and I absolutely loved it! SO much useful insight and information. I’m just getting started on my voice acting quest, doing as much reading and research as possible. There are a dizzying amount of resources on the internet to educate yourself about voice acting, but this e-book has been by far the single most helpful resource I’ve come across thus far. I also want to point out that as an aspiring voice actor who resides in North Carolina, I very much appreciated the fact that you addressed the geographical aspect of certain categories of the business. And how things are evolving since the onset of the pandemic. One of my concerns getting into this is not living in LA or New York. I have a family and we’ve planted roots here in NC. But reading your e-book, I came away very informed, excited, and encouraged! Probably the best $10 I’ve ever spent! Looking forward to reading Part 2. Thanks so much 🙂
