“Ron walked me into the business step by step and continues to be the most integral part of my audiobook career strategy:  just do what Ron tells you to do.” - Christopher C.

 
 

The Approach: Skills + Mindset

Narration is storytelling, and my goal is to help you expand, hone, and market your unique, inner storyteller.    But success isn’t just about skills - it’s also about mindset.  I have a comprehensive approach:  a combination of performance training, business strategy, and life-coaching, that’s geared to performers looking to break into the audiobook narration business or level-up their narration career.

Reviews

"Saturday’s class “Building A Bigger Audio-book Business” with @RonnieButler was compelling and full of invaluable information. Thank you Ronnie!”

-Sally Clawson, Voice One, San Francisco

“I continue to be amazed at the generosity of the presenters… Like the amazing Ronnie Butler who poured his heart and soul into helping us improve our skills.”

-Machelle W.

“I had been doing professional v.o. for 20+ years when I first approached Ron about narrating audiobooks.  I only wish I had done it sooner. He walked me into the business step by step and continues to be the most integral part of my audiobook career strategy:  “Just do what Ron tells you to do.”

-Christopher C.

"There were a lot of working V.O. pros that night who had not yet experienced working on audio-books… Ronnie inspired each of them, guiding them easily and effortless through the adjustments required to allow the skills and talents to shine through in this medium… showing each person where they had instinctive abilities and where they could improve.  He encouragingly laid out both the not-for-the-faint-of -heart realities and the tremendously rewarding possibilities of working on audio-books."

-Tish Hicks, The VO Dojo, San Francisco
