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.

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!

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.
