With your host, Anne Ganguzza. Along with some of the strongest voices in our industry. Rock your business. Like a boss. A VO B.O.S.S.

Anne: Hey, everybody, welcome to the VO B.O.S.S. Podcast, I’m your host, Anne Ganguzza, along with my beautiful, lovely, intelligent, amazing co-host, Gabby Nistico.

Gabby: Oh my gosh, thank you. Hi.

Anne: Hey, Gabby! Gabby, today I’m super excited to talk about something that I LOVE!

Gabby: Is it my favorite thing too? Is it? Is it?

Anne: I think so. Ways to get paid! Whoo-hoo!

Gabby: Squeeze! Money. I love money.

Anne: Squee! Money money money, mon-ey. Mon-ey!

Gabby: All the money. Yes. Yes!

Anne: Okay.

Gabby: Oh my God. Love ways to get paid.– Anne; Oh my God, I’m not a singer, I just want you to know that.

Gabby: Just the topic, it makes me so happy.

Anne: I know, it makes me very happy too. And I am not ashamed. I am not ashamed to tell all of you how much I love money.

Gabby: No.

Anne: Because that keeps me doing what I’m doing, and what I love to do. And to get paid for it is just…

Gabby: How could you be a B.O.S.S. and not love money?

Anne: That’s true. That’s true.

Gabby: Like, really? I mean, come on.

Anne: I think that’s probably one of the main parts of the definition of a BOSS. So we need to talk about how we are going to get paid in our VO business because if we don’t get paid, guess what, we really are not a business. And we really cannot–

Gabby: It’s hobby.

Anne:–hope to continue. Right. Doing voiceover for a living. So, I think we should discuss all of the different ways that we can get paid. And…

Gabby: Yes, please.

Anne: Yeah. And, I think, first and foremost you wanna make sure that you make it easy for your client to pay you. That’s number one. Make it easy.

Gabby: And I’m gonna add to that. Yes. Make it easy.

Anne: Yes.

Gabby: Most definitely. But here’s what I love about that: we see this all the time in social posts—

Gabby:–and conversations. People go, “Should I have this way to get paid? And should I have this…” and my answer, “Yes. Yes. Yes. Yes. And yes again. And yes to that one. And yes to that other thing. And tomorrow, if there’s another thing, then yes to that thing too.

Anne: And if it’s painful to implement, it’s okay. Do it anyways.

Gabby: Right? Because if it means that my client has more ways to put money in my hands faster?

Anne: Absolutely.

Gabby: Yes! Yes. And more yes. Oh my God.

Anne: And so many people are so co–“Well, okay but there are so many fees here and so many fees there.” And, honestly, here’s the deal: I’d rather get paid and pay a fee then not get paid.

Gabby: Right? Thank you.

Anne: And if that fee is 3%, if that fee is 4%, if that fee is 8%, I’d still rather get paid.

Gabby: I mean, okay. Fees. Guess what? A) Cost of doing business.

Anne: Yep.

Gabby: B) Totally, 1000% tax write off.

Anne: Yep. Absolutely.
