How A Career Reboot Can Make You Feel More Alive with Voiceover Artist, Amy Bermudez | UYGW059

Unleashing YOUR Great Work

Feb 21 2023 • 31 mins

In December 2019, Amy Bermudez was feeling unsatisfied with her job. She worked in an industry she didn’t love, for people who stressed her out, doing work that was… fine. She wanted more, but she wasn’t sure what that “more” was. In a chance encounter with a relative, Amy learned about voiceover.

She signed up for a course, enjoyed what she learned and began to wonder: is voiceover right for me? Then, in March 2020, the world shut down for the COVID-19 pandemic, and in response, Amy’s company shut its doors completely.

Newly unemployed in a world that had changed overnight, Amy’s mind wandered to voiceover.

Could this be her chance to try something new? Amy decided to give it a real shot. Over the course of the past few years, Amy has launched her fledgling voiceover business from scratch, and it has changed her life. As Amy said, “allowing myself to do the thing I wanted to do has been amazing. I feel more alive.”

Join us as we discuss:

·   How the chaos of the pandemic created an opportunity for reinvention

·   How believing in herself has resolved a lifelong worry that she wasn’t “good enough” to do what she loved

·   How voiceover artistry has given Amy the creative outlet she has yearned for

·   How interesting and rewarding she finds her new work, and how excited she is for the future.
