Hey there, wonderful recording, and welcome. Let's get you recording! First there's one thing to fix. You have quite a bit of background noise. Does your software have a noise reduction feature? If it is Audacity I can give you instructions, if not, I may be able to point you in some direction on help. If you get it figured out please re upload and post in this thread so I can take another listen :D

Thank you. Yes, I am using Audacity. I will try to figure out how to correct the noice. Any advice is welcome. I'm using a Yeti mic.

Perfect. Here are the basic steps for noise reduction:
1. Select a small piece of your recording that is pure noise
2. Go into menu items Effect>Noise Reduction
3. In Section 2 on the screen, choose your settings. My settings are Noise Reduction: 12, Sensitivity: 6, Frequency: 0.
4. Select 'Get Noise Profile'.
5. Select your entire recording.
6. Go to menu items Effect>Repeat Noise Reduction.
7. Take a listen, you may find that you want to do this over again to reduce more noise.

Hello lymiewithpurpose

Thank you for the directions. I have corrected the noise using the Checker and it says it 'passed.'
Here is the corrected version.
