Like every small business, it’s important that I let my customers know at what point, over the Christmas holidays, that they might struggle to reach me.
It’s also important that I let people know all of my travel plans, just in case I’m away from my studio on a day when a really important voiceover recording job comes in.
Not a problem either.
You see, the joy of working as a voice over artist is that my business is open 24/7, 365 days of the year. If a TV channel in the USA needs me to record some promos at what would be 4am my time, then that’s totally fine. If my clients in China need a corporate video recorded at 11pm, then I’m more than happy to help.
I’m not suggesting I don’t sleep, it’s just that I absolutely love the work that I do, and so am happy to make myself as available as possible. That also means that, when I’m travelling, I take a small recording set up with me and also make a point of identifying studios close to where I’ll be staying, just in case my own set up is not quite up to the task.
So, officially, my business’ Christmas opening hours sign reads as follows:
Whenever – OPEN
So, how can I help you today?
