Welcome to VOU! I am glad to see you making another stab at the VO biz. I saw your blog... If you have a quality studio, you can truly work from anywhere in the world. Don't let anyone tell you differently. The key is a great studio, a great demo, incredible marketing savvy, great agents behind you, networking. being new to the industry - getting listed with sites that will bring a constant flow of auditions & you are on your way. If you ever have any questions - don't hesitate to ask. I am happy to help in any way I can.

Wishing you the best!
