The Vocal Mask of Arrogance Ep. 148

October 15, 2018

Welcome to the show!

Today is an important episode for anyone that struggles with that guy who is always loud and boasting and well, arrogant.

I know you might think of that person as intimidating and very confident but I want to create another possibility for you...perhaps it's just a mask and the person who's bark is louder than their bite might be just as scared as you are.

In today's episode I'm going to talk about:

Why some people chose to be louder, bolder and even arrogant when they lack confidence,

Why you don't need to be afraid of the person who is louder and appears to be more confident,

What confidence really looks like,

How to manage yourself around the person whom you fear because of the way they use their voice with you.

The Real Reasons You’re Struggling with Breathing

September 24, 2018

Welcome to the show!

Today I'm talking about breathing, primarily the two biggest issues that you are most likely struggling with.  Why?  Because everyone is.  The idea to just remember to breath is not real.  You are in brace mode when it comes to your breathing, you put that into your muscle memory just like all of these other bad voice habits that we're getting rid of.

We actually have two problems.  One, you aren't taking in air enough times, which has nothing to do with the quantity of air you take in.  Two, you are disconnected from the breath.  So basically you aren't letting the air out.  This means you are taking in a breath, holding it then dumping it out after you've spoken way too many words.

Sound familiar?  Well today we are going to fix both of those issues.

Getting Past Finding the Perfect Words, It’s Wrecking Your Voice

September 10, 2018

Getting Past Finding the Perfect Words, It's Wrecking Your Voice

Welcome to the show!

Today I'm talking all about perfectionism and your voice.  So many of the peopel I work with are perfectionist.  The problem here is that every time you try to get the words just right you are stopping your voice from working.  When you go up in your head to find just the right words you disconnect.  When you disconnect, we disconnect from you.

It's not even about the words!  You know that, it's about connecting to the message which is in your heart.

In today's episode I'm talking about why you've got to let that perfect words idea go and how to do it.

How to Stop By-Passing People and Conflict, Use Your Voice

September 3, 2018

Welcome to the show!

Today I'm talking about using your voice in conflict and addressing the person you have an issue with rather than by passing them and going to someone else and getting them to handle it.

We all have done it, just get someone else to deal with it because the person we are avoiding, well, we might be avoiding for good reason.

Today I'm going to give you the why and how of not by passing and heading straight over to the person you need to discuss an issue with.

August 28, 2018

Welcome to the show.

Today I'm talking about the lilt or uptick, you know like the Valley girl.  But it's not just the Valley girl that has it.  It's all kinds of women and men from all over the place.  It has to go.  Why?  Because it's keeping you from getting to the next level in your career, it's revealing doubt and asking for permission.  If you are the expert, why are you asking my permission.

All of this is being processed in the listener's subconcious mind.  They're telling you no and they they don't even know why.

Let's fix that!  Today I'll tell you how.
