Chances are you have seen the VO Genesis sales page and wondering whether it’s worth your time and money.
Most people think getting paid to work from home is super hard. VO Genesis claims you can make some crazy money pretty quickly by using your own voice.
This VO Genesis review will reveal the truth about the program and help you decide if it’s worth buying.
Vo Genesis claims to help you to become a professional voice over artist and get paid to work from home.
The video explains a lot of the benefits you can receive from this “secret to making money”.
I won’t go too much in detail about the sales video as you can watch it here.
Now more importantly…
There are a bunch of “training videos” and PDFs for you to to get started as a voice-over artist.
I found an insider video on YouTube so you can see exactly what is inside the training…
(You only need to watch from 3 mins to 6 mins 15 seconds.)
As you can see, the videos are really just text with someone being a voice-over!
There are plenty of resources thrown at you inside but I can almost hear your mind saying…
There are two main ways an online course can be a scam:
VO Genesis clearly provides some training.
Therefore, it’s not a type 1 scam where you pay money and never receive anything.
But does it really live up to the promises it makes of helping you achieve thousands of dollars an hour?
Continue reading this VO Genesis review to find out…
Just to be fully transparent with you, I have not purchased this program myself so I will stop short of calling it a scam outright.
I have researched the website, testimonials and information on the Internet to get to the bottom of what this program genuinely does. This is because I have been burnt from programs just like this in the past and I want to prevent others from making the same mistakes. If you’d like to learn more “Ways to Spot an Online Marketing Scam” then click the highlighted text.
Here are some of the things I like about VO Genesis…
You can learn exactly what is expected of you as a voice-over artist.
You will find some valuable information about:
There is some genuinely helpful content here for someone that knows nothing about being paid for a voice-over artist.
There is also some information in here about how you can grow and scale your home-based business.
There are some little nuggets of information in here that can help you find the right gigs that suit you and how to put yourself on the radar.
There is also a bonus PDF that has some information about how to get loads of voice-over opportunities.
As you keep reading this VO Genesis review, you will realise it may not be quite as good as first thought.
So the part you’ve been waiting for…
The not so good and red flags of VO Genesis…
First of all the price says VO Genesis is $97. However, it’s possible to get it for $39.95 and some people claim they’ve bought it for cheaper (although this down-sell seems to have been removed now)
Here are some of the prices you could pay:
These upsells are not mentioned at all before you purchase VO Genesis.
So you may spend $39.95 only to realise you need to spend an extra $131 just to get the information promised.
…Not a good sign amigo!
The sales video makes it very clear you can expect to receive thousands of dollars an hour.
Here is the current screenshot of voice-over opportunities on Freelancer…
There are a few things to note here:
This doesn’t look like a thousand dollar an hour kind of job at the start, that’s for sure!
The sales video hardly touches on what you will actually be doing.
It just makes references to how much you can earn.
Plus it pulls on your emotions, such as spending time with your kids, to make you feel like this could solve a problem.
These are big warning signs about any program. If the sales video concentrates more on what you can recieve rather than what you need to do then chances are something is a bit fishy!
As you can see in the video at the top of the page… all the content seems to have been made in 2013!
This may have been great then, but the online world changes rapidly. Therefore, so should the training.
I even found a review that said VO Genesis recommends some websites that don’t even exist anymore!
On top of all of this, everything can be found online for free.
With one YouTube search (literally one!!) I found this video.
Earl has a completely free training program where you could learn so much of this (be aware there’s a good chance he’ll try to sell something later on… but this is not a review on Earl!)
Plus there were loads of tips on YouTube so this should be the first place you go if you are serious about starting a Voice Over business.
After this brutally honest review, I guess you are thinking I am going to say… don’t bother with it.
Well, you’d be right.
There’s one thing I would like to mention.
If you have the money and are time poor, you could learn a lot of the basics that would take you some time to figure out yourself.
If you are interested in making money as a voice-over artist then VO Genesis will put you on the right track to do so.
Is this a great program… no
Will it make you thousands of dollars an hour… certainly not any time soon
But if you want to make a few hundred dollars a month as a side hustle for reading stuff out, VO Genesis can help you.
If you are interested in making some quick cash without too much effort, there is one way anyone can do this…
Is it fun… not particularly.
Can it make you $200+ per month… yes, if you set things up well.
The best part is, it costs $0 to start. In fact, you can earn $45 just by signing up to the best 15 legit survey sites that pay cash. Click that link to learn more.
It wasn’t that long ago that I was still trying to figure out how people make money online.
It was in September 2018 that I found Wealthy Affiliate.
And in September 2019 I quit my full-time job.
The best thing about it is:
When you try out this program you will see why so many people recommend it.
No credit card details required
To sum up this VO Genesis review…
You can find all this information out for free online.
If you’re interested in making a couple hundred dollars pocket money each month as a voice-over artist then this could be for you.
It’s not an outright scam, but it certainly is no “secret way to make $1,500 an hour at home”.
Keep changing for the better,
P.S. Since you’re still here, I’m going to assume that you are interested in making money online to free up your time. So check out my review of my #1 recommended program to help you do just that…

You probably agree that you get nothing in life for free.
Most people think that you need to pay a hefty fee for education in whatever it is you want to learn more about i.e. property! Tej from Tej Talks proves there may be another way to learn the information that you want.
In this podcast we chat about:
As you listen to this podcast you will discover how Tej found his hidden talent… storytelling!
Tej is just your normal bloke… he has a background in science and got a medical education job (like advertising but for doctors and nursing).
Listen in to find out:
Tej then went onto build his own recruitment company but managed to “win” some property education (find out how in the show).
You’ll find out that this made him want to learn more about property.
So he did what anyone would do…started a property podcast! (This is my sarcastic writing tone btw!)
Tej didn’t really do any research up front. But he went off a hunch:
He even explains that he didn’t do some things he probably should have before starting such as:
Tej just started interviewing property investors to make a podcast a week.
Now Tej produces 2 podcasts a week:
As you listen in you will start to figure out some of the benefits of podcasting such as building your own personal brand, networking and learning more about what you’re interested in.
During this section Tej talks about why he chose to start investing in South Wales:
And here is more info on Tej’s current deal:
And the numbers:
This is almost a 100% return and Tej is a conservative little rascal… so it could be even better! Click here to read more about the deal.
Now I can almost hear your mind thinking… how the heck did he find this bad boy?…
Tej met this particular sourcing agent at a masterclass a year ago.
He “watched” him for 6 months using Facebook, chatting to him and getting deals sent through.
Tej also knew someone else that had used them and had said good things.
In this part of the podcast Tej reveals:
Note there may be some made up facts before you get your knickers in a twist…
If you’re like me then you’re probably super excited to hear some top tips to find a sourcing agent:
You will also find out what Tej recommends you should do when you’re happy with the sourcing agent and you are interested in a deal.
There are a few options Tej provides for people that are abroad and interested in investing in the UK property market:
Are you beginning to see that you are going to HAVE to work with people if you want to get involved in property?
Funny enough… every day is different! Are you starting to see this seems to be a common theme on the podcast?
Here are some of the things he will get up to:
Tej likes to have a balance between structuring his days but also the freedom to choose what he wants to do.
Tej talks about his “Podcast Master Guide” that he has put together. This includes:
The more you listen to this podcast the more you will notice that taking action is far more important than perfecting anything you try out. You can always get perfect later!
If you are like me then you probably don’t really know how people make money from their podcast. Tej talks about 2 different ways this is possible:
When you have something to offer, people are more likely to invest in YOU, not the tool or platform if they trust you.
If Tej could give himself advice just before he got fired here is what he would say:

You’ve probably heard of the benefits of meditation before.
But, if you’re like me you probably put this kind of thing to the back burner especially when you are busy or have important things coming up.
However, Barry Nelson proves it is possible to meditate daily. He has 3 successful businesses and two young kids but manages to find time for an hour or more of meditation every day.
This podcast will show you how this is possible and the benefits of doing so.
Personal development is crucial if you are interested in creating your own lifestyle. Check out “What I’ve Learnt from Reading Over 100 Books in the Last 3 Years” for 9 key lessons from some of the world’s most successful people.

Property is one of the 4 main asset classes you can invest in. Find out how it’s possible to diversify into another asset class in “The Secret to Earn Passive Income“.
It’s certainly not always rainbows and butterflies! Here, Barry mentions:
This is the main section where you will learn how meditation creates more freedom:
If a guy with 2 young kids and 3 business can find time to meditate each day, do you think most people can?

Barry initially felt meditation was quite hippyish & woo woo!
However, he quickly found some huge benefits including:

• Increases blood flow and slows the heart rate… https://t.co/uwZrsUDz7t @KoreChiro#wellness pic.twitter.com/X3JLX68zEx
Barry talks about how the internet and particularly social media has helped all of his businesses. He talks about:
What other people think about me, is none of my business
Barry talks a lot about setting blocks of time and having “boxes” for each business:
…And if you follow him on social media you will see how often he’s off on holiday in some sunny part of the world!
1- Work on yourself- you are in charge of changing your own life i.e. read 10 pages of a book each day, listen to audiobooks/ podcast when you’re driving
2- Don’t wish your life away. Always something that you’re working towards and wishing to have something else or something bigger. Being content and happy with your life NOW
What if you woke up tomorrow with only the things that you are grateful for yesterday?
3- Start looking at the lifestyle you are willing to live. If there’s something you want to do, find time to start doing it. You don’t always have to be something that you don’t want to be. You must be intentional. You can’t just think about it then watch Netflix and drink beer every evening.
You have to put the time and effort in. It won’t magically happen but you’ll need to stay the course.
If you want to just sit on a beach working 5 hours a week, how can you do that?
Reverse engineer your life!
Chances are if you’re like me then you’ve never really given this much thought. If you’re not sure where to start then check out “Why Make Time Online? Financial Independence Retire Early Blog“.
Try it if you’ve never given it a go before…
If you already do it become more intentional with it. Remember 10 minutes a day is more important than a 1-hour session once a week.
Focus on creating the habit, then the duration and how you do it can be tweaked afterwards.
Check out the book that Barry has been reading (we’ve just started listening to the audio version and it’s pretty eye-opening!) Joe Dispenzer- “Breaking the Habit of Being Yourself“
Connect with Barry on any social media channels:
Barry Nelson knows a lot about managing his time. Any parent with two young children would vouch for how challenging this can be by itself.
Throw in 3 businesses to run and you’ve got yourself a full plate right there!
The more you listen to this podcast the more you will realise that Barry is solution focused and has actually created a lifestyle that he wants for himself and his family. As time goes by he is solving bigger problems and creating more time for his family to enjoy together.

“To help others live the life they want by showing them it is possible”
Mike, Make Time Online
Hi, welcome to Make Time Online!
This is a place where you can follow my online journey into finding a way to make money online to create more time in my life. The journey will include different programs that I try out and tips or training that I find most useful.
I have been living a life following “the script”. I grew up in England, went to school, university and then got a job as a teacher. I bought a house and got married (obviously the best decision of my life as my wife, Sarah, is possibly the greatest human being on the planet and a big reason as to why I’m starting this!)
But I’ve always felt like there is more to life than just waking up and going to work for someone else.
We were sitting in my parents living room in August 2017 when I said to Sarah, “do you fancy writing a blog with me?”
I didn’t realise what the impact of those few minutes on that sofa would have…
We have always loved adventures and exploring the world, so we decided to teach internationally… We now live in Qatar, with summer all year round and South East Asia a short flight away.
This has created soooo many opportunities for us in our personal lives but also in our financial lives.
We now own a property investment company in the UK and have met some people who are literally “crushing it” (stealing the words of Gary V).
The thing we have noticed about all of these successful people is that they are completely normal.
No different to you and me.
Nobody comes from a family of MILLIONAIRES or can do extraordinary things.
They are just ordinary people who use their TIME much better than I have ever done.
There was something else in common about these successful people we started to meet and spend time with…
They all earnt passive income.
To me, passive income means spending time today that pays you over and over again… even when you sleep… or sit on the loo!
The two main ways that I have seen to make PASSIVE income are:
So back to that day sitting in the sun on the sofa in Essex, the day before we flew back to Qatar…
I spent 10 minutes searching for how to create a blog.
WordPress jumped out at me, so I set up an account.
A few minutes later…
We hopped into this mysterious world of “blogging”. I have since “met” (online) some amazing people who are not only doing this full time… but are earning MILLIONS of dollars a year.
If you’re anything like me, you’re probably thinking “Yo bro… I don’t want to sit in front of a computer screen all day!” or “I don’t even know how to change a lightbulb, let alone do techie stuff!”
The fact is you don’t NEED to do this to make money online.
I have learnt so far that you definitely do NEED to put in TIME and EFFORT… but there are systems that you can put in place or people that can do things that you don’t want to.
Plus… are you telling me that you’ve never put TIME and EFFORT into your job?
Without a doubt, the Internet is the best place to put in TIME if you’d like to get paid over and over again.
I have become aware of how many people have problems that could be solved by 2 things:
TIME and MONEY.
Going to school was always a bit of a nuisance growing up… It got in the way of playing sports and seeing my friends!!
Seeing education as a teacher has made me realise what a disservice it does for children in today’s information age.
Knowledge is money today.
Yet schools channel people into getting a full-time job.
Full-time jobs take away your TIME… and it’s pretty hard to increase your MONEY.
The worst lesson we pick up from school is trading our time for money i.e. go to work and get paid for the amount of time we put in instead of the quality of our work or value we add.
I told some colleagues a few years ago that I wanted to change the WHOLE education system. After the mocking that you would expect from a bunch of PE teacher’s someone asked, “but how?”
… well, this website is “the how”.
Our learning doesn’t stop when we leave school… Remember guys every day’s a school day!
The number one goal of this website is to show you a way that you can make money online.
It is possible and it is being done by normal people all over the world. It does not require ridiculous amounts of money to be able to do it… and no you don’t need to code!!
I’d love to hear from you and what your story is.
Keep changing for the better,
