In this course you are going to learn about the BIG opportunity that exists in the audiobook industry right now and how you can get started before everyone else jumps onboard (remember the Kindle rush a few years back?)

This free course has 5 main sections:

2. What's Involved? -- Find out exactly what narrators do, the difference between traditional narrators and audiobook producers, and the big myth that keeps many people from pursuing work in the audiobook industry.

3. Money Talks -- Wondering how much you can really make as a narrator? We'll go over all your money questions and I'll show you my strategy for growing a sustainable income stream with audiobooks.

4. Gear + Studio Set-up -- Learn which tools you will need to get started and how to set-up a "pro" sounding audiobook recording studio in your own home.

5. Finding Work As a Narrator -- I'll show you exactly where to find thousands of books that are actively seeking narrators and how to tell if a deal is "good" (aka. likely to be profitable) or not.
