    Lili put herself entirely into these books, and as you read them you will tell that they were written with love. She shares her experience and all the things she says, she makes sure they relate to real life situations. You will learn a lot just from reading these books. And if you’re a complete beginner, these are the books for you. You will be equipped with knowledge and a complete head start, instead of watching youtube videos which take you back and forth. I was almost giving up and about to sell all my equipment until I read these books. My goal is to be a narrator for National Geographic and life documentaries.
    Thank you for making this knowledge accessible and affordable to everyone!

    Lili Wexu is a renowned on-screen actress, voice actress, and voice over coach – and with this series of of Get Clever About Voice Acting and Announcing books, Lili lends her voice to the printed page. As a professional, she has her finger to the pulse of every aspect of the voice over/voice acting industry, and draws on her talent as an author to make the ins-and-outs of each genre not only current, but also salient to the reader. Having earned a degree in acting (on stage) and an MBA from one of the world’s top business schools, I approached this book with the modest expectation of picking up a few business tips that might be specific to this industry. Lili exceeded my expectations beyond measure, both in the breadth and depth of the material that she presents. She grounds each concept, convention, and technique in a practical setting while employing a readily comprehensible writing style. Perhaps of greatest value, Lili offers not only her insight, but also actionable detail that enables the reader to apply her insight to one’s own VO business endeavors. I have no doubt that it would have taken me several years to amass the knowledge and understanding that I found in this book. Please don’t be fooled into thinking that the relatively low price of this book implies a somewhat shallow treatment of the subject. It does not. With Running Your Voiceover Business, Lili is offering every voice artist/actor – regardless of experience level – a very generous, value-packed gift. I am most grateful to Lili for this gift, and hope that others will also benefit from her offering.

    Like so many others here on Lili’s site, I purchased the three-book bundle and just finished Part III. If you’re thinking about a career in the voice industry, it’s a must-read. All three books are invaluable and accomplish two main things.

    1. Lili breaks it down honestly and candidly regarding the commitment and work required if you want to be successful.

    2. When it feels a little overwhelming and you begin to question if “you’ve started too late,” she gives you some wisdom and encouragement to follow through. If you listen to the dozens and dozens of sound bites Lili has posted
    as her acting credentials, you’ll see exactly why you need to trust what she says.

    Honestly, I’m a little overwhelmed but I think that’s a good thing. I’ll refer back to these books over and over again. Well done, Lili.

    I purchased all three books of the Get Clever series last week. I just finished part three. I can not stress enough the importance of reading these books from Lili. You’ll get a very clear picture of what it actually takes to become and remain a voice actor in todays world. Like any career, its hard work, but its work that can be very rewarding and fun. Lili goes into the ways you can market yourself, better than any other book I’ve read. She helps you with what to expect and what is expected of you when you do land those jobs. She gives you a clear map on how to work and present yourself as a professional. These books are a must have!

    This book is all about the business of the business of VO Acting, which is absolutely necessary, especially for newbies. And it’ll actually help people who’ve been doing this for a while. It’s got info on contracts and billing, how to stay ethical (in a sometimes un-ethical industry), what to expect when you’re in a recording studio, union vs non-union work and benefits, auditioning for agents, marketing and a whole lot more.
