22: Big shift

stolenvoice tv vlog –

My creator’s journey started 303 days ago

Last week I forgot to mention that I’ll be having my sabbatical, number 6 out 7 for this year. It’s always an important part of my overall schedule and I like to use it to have time for things that I usually don’t have/make time for, like sleeping enough, working on side projects or travel.

In this sabbatical I slept more and worked on voiceoversdream.com, and there’s a BIG SHIFT that happened which I didn’t see coming.

I’ll let Frank, Hank and Jimmy talk so I can wrap up the week after.

1/4 Worker: Frank

Last week I defined to get these actions done. But when I defined them I forgot it was my sabbatical in which I’m spending time on different projects, not the usual obligations. However, I’ll include those things I wanted to get done and add those I only wrote down on paper.

What I worked on (1x) but didn’t mention last week:

Working on freewritecamp.org was a surprise. The 2nd masterclass, starting in December 2018, reminded me of my project freewritecmap.org. And this was a good fit because I then realized how much I want this project to succeed, and with now shifted mindset (product work instead of client work, creating things instead of making money, and my day job is paying everything so I can spend time building assets) this was/is a good fit.

What I wanted to work on in case I „nothing left“ to do but but didn’t mention last week:


Working on

Making my days more flexible again and less rigid so I’m stressing myself less.


My overall „jumpyness“ and impatience, I hope I can be patient enough for freewritecamp.org and my voiceover path.

Voiceover weaknesses


Done next time

These actions I’ll putting on the back burner for now

In addition to the ones I mentioned last week:

2/4 CEO: Hank

How did business go?

It was sabbatical, the whole team can do whatever it wants.

3/4 Head of Sales: Jimmy

How did sales go?

No sales

4/4 Last words of the observer: Alex (me)

What did you (as the gray eminence) get out of this week? What was remarkable?

I’m no longer in sole-voiceover journey but in creator’s journey, voiceover is a part of it.
