This v/blog is about sharing stories, listening to people tell their journey whether it be about their careers or hobbies. Inspiring others to follow their dreams and strive to do something that makes them happy, speaks to their soul or lights a fire in their belly. My guests share advice from their own perspectives over various topics, they share their hopes and dreams and what they want out of life and out of their endeavors. The great thing about being human is that everyone has their own experiences that form their own opinions, and sometimes we need to hear an opinion that differs from our own. This is not a place to condemn someone for how they do or think about things if it’s different from how you’d do it, but to just listen and take it for what it is – a sharing of their experience.

Welcome Kayla Pitts to the fold as we talk about voiceover, fantasy books and scuba diving!

This is the second episode of my vlog and I am super excited to have had the chance to sit and talk with Kayla about the things she’s interested in, and found that we have a few interests in common. Thanks for the book recommendations, Kayla! I don’t think she was really excited to be talking on camera, but I’m glad she agreed because I would’ve been more awkward to be the only one visible.

This is where you say, “Noooo, Sam, you weren’t awkward at all!” To which I would scoff with a side-eye but still be very grateful for your lies. 😀

Kayla is a *free-spirited* voice actress (I realize now that I said fear-spirited and I had a good laugh about that) who has been doing commercials, promos and really is interested in all types of voiceover. Animation/characters seems to be a big goal for her. Voicing Medusa would be the ultimate dream come true – need I say more? That would be badass, by the way. I think she could totally pull off a great Medusa main character.

She tells us about how she got started in VO and how her experience has been going so far. She’s working 3 jobs, hosting the VO Playground on Clubhouse, running a whole business…she’s basically superwoman. A lot of us are not full-time entrepreneurs because it takes a lot of time, commitment, energy, dedication, and investment to get there – but she’s grinding and manifesting the life she wants to live and I have absolute faith that she’ll be successful in her endeavors. In a few years, we’ll be looking back on this video and think of all the hard work we put into becoming top performers and business owners and it’ll be worth every struggle and every win.

If you love fantasy/worldbuilding books that spark the imagination, if you love playing around with different voices or different characters, if you like witchy things and talking about abstract concepts or just would love to support a great voice actress – go follow Kayla on Instagram @kaylapittsvoice and Twitter @KPvo8 (KaylaPittsVoice). For networking and connecting with her business, her LinkedIn is Kayla Pitts Voice.
