Voice-over artist -- Jeannie Stith
5 of 7

If your ideal job entails working eight to 10 hours a week, making about $100,000 per year, then being a voice-over artist might be right for you.

If, that is, you have a unique voice or talent.

Jeannie Stith broke into the business through a friend.

"He was doing voice-over work and spoke to our theater class about it. I was interested and wanted to try and he got me my first job and it snowballed from there," she says.

Stith markets herself to recording studios and ad agencies and works through an agent.

"For commercial work, I have a demo that is made up of clips of commercials that have all the sounds I can do well. And then they hire me for a job and I go to the studio. A lot of times I don't even know what I'm doing until I get there," she says.

"I'm my own boss, so I don't have to take the job if I don't want to. It's very competitive, but if you have something unique, then there is always room for someone who is excellent," Stith says.
