 31:20 “When I first went full time, I had about $1000 in my bank account and like, no back up plan, so people would often say to me as I’m coaching them or when I speak in workshops or things like that, how much money did you have saved when you went full time?, and I was like, zero. They were like, what’s your backup plan?..didn’t have one. What was in your savings account?…nothing. I had nothing. I bought a decent microphone and an audio interface that the mic plugs into so it’s an upgrade from a USB mic and then I joined voices.com, so between the mic, the interface, and the membership, it was about $1000 and within about 2 weeks, I booked my first job on that site that paid about $500 and I was like, okay, great! We’re moving! And then it was just from there. Every time I started making a good amount of money, I was like, okay, let’s upgrade that microphone, let’s take a new workshop, let’s make a demo, and I’m still constantly investing in myself to try and push myself forward – and it’s great for write-offs.”
