Your spouse might agree to help by working ouside the home, but most would appreciate you having at least a part time income. It's tough out there with no income, folks .
Your spouse may not agree after a while and boot your butt out the door. Are your friends going to let you bring all your equipment and books to live with them with promises of money when your voiceover career kicks in? Not hardly!
If you are already working a job, keep it. It is hard to build a voiceover or any other business.
Don't lose your head and family because someone said you have a great voice and you should get into voiceover. As I said earlier and will repeat in future blogs, It's hard and time consuming to build a VO business.
Once you take classes and/or receive coaching, you need a demo, which costs a lot of money for a good one. There are books by successful and unsuccessful voice actors telling you how to market it. One such book buy an extremely successful voice actor is How to Start and Build a SIX FIGURE Voice Over Business:By Bill DeWees (affiliate link).Notice it says build.
You need to market that demo to the people you would like to do work for, or agents. I would suggest staying away from pay to play websites as some of them tend to be expensive and mostly ineffective for most people, me, for instance. My opinion only, You could ask others..
Keep your job or have some kind of income. I was already retired with an income when I began pursuing voiceover. Do what it takes to take care of the essentials in life. When you do that then take care of the ssentials of VO and VO will eventually take care of you. I said USUALLY.! There are no iron clad guarantees for anything. Keep your life in balance: Work, Recreation, Faith.
