Time to Shine Vocally

Time to Shine Vocally

January 19, 2021

Welcome to the show!

It’s time to shine!  You shine with your voice.  Why?  Because it’s your voice that has the power to make me feel how you want me to feel about you and your business.

What do you want us to feel?  Are you using your voice to make us feel that way?

So many people want to be heard or seen, they want people to watch their videos, like, comment, buy…but they aren’t using their voices in a way to make that happen.

It’s your voice and your ability to captivate me to with it that is the key to the next level in your business.  Don’t keep thinking the new microphone is going to make this better. 

It’s only when you rewrite the noise in your head around your voice and change the bad voice habits that noise left behind that you will be able to get to the next level, to stop the scroll, to stand in authority, and command a presence.

Voice has always been critical, it’s non-negotiable moving into 2021.

What are you going to do with your voice?

I hope you will join me for my upcoming 3-day live Masterclass training series to unleash your voice. 

We start on January 28th, I hope you will join us! to sign up!

The Best Reveal of You

The Best Reveal of You

January 12, 2021

Welcome to the show!

Today I'm talking about the best reveal of you.

A lot of people believe they are revealing who they really are and to a degree they are.

Others know they aren't revealing their true self. 

People are being on, they are hiding behind a lot of words or speaking fast or even worse, a mask of protection.

The masks are what people really don't realize and these tiny sounds are sabotaging the next level of success.

I want you to get rid of the sounds that are getting in your way because until you get rid of these sounds you really can't unleash the best version of you and without the best version of you...well, you are missing out on that next level of success.

Are you ready to take your business to the next level?  It's not the mic that will make your voice, it's removing the masks and drivers and bad voice habits that are costing you everything.

I hope you will join me for my upcoming training Unleash your voice.  It's a 3-day masterclass training with loads of great training and hot seat coaching.  

I promise you this is training you've never seen and honestly, didn't even know you needed.

Connection Happens Vocally

Connection Happens Vocally

January 5, 2021

Welcome to 2021 and the show!

Can you believe it?  We made it! 

In today’s episode, I’m talking about the connection which is key for 2021.  People are desperate for connection and I’m sure you can see why.

The voice is the place of connection and in the episode today I’m talking about how and why the voice plays such an integral part.

Barriers, blocks, masks, things you hide behind in tiny sounds are how you block us, keep us out and it’s in subtle ways that you probably don’t even realize are happening.

I hope you will step out from behind the voice masks that you have been carrying for so long.  In 2021 I want you to stop working so hard to hold up the masks that are weighing you down.

If you want to join me for my upcoming live training starting January 28th, I’d love for you to join me.  Just go to and sign up.

Best wishes for the best 2021!

Voice 2020 Accomplishments and New Voice Goals

December 22, 2020

Welcome to the show!

Today I’m doing a bit of a wrap up of the year and a little bit of looking ahead for the new year.

What were your greatest challenges this year?  What was good?  I believe there is always something of benefit in every experience no matter how challenging it is.

I watched hundreds of people shatter their greatest fears around using their voice this year and it was truly magical.

So many people have had to step up this year and get visible in ways they have been avoiding for years.

Did you accomplish the voice goals you had?

In this episode, I’ll not only talk about what my students accomplished this year but exactly what you need to think about in relation to your voice and how to use it in the coming year.

I am sending best wishes for a magical holiday and best wishes for an amazing New Year.

I’ll be back with more great content after the holidays and if you have a topic that you struggle with, please send me an email at and I’ll record a special episode just for you!

Welcome to the podcast!

I've got a fantastic episode for you with someone that I know you are going to love learning from.

It's possible you have heard me talk about the company TrueNorth and the work I do for them.  In fact, about a year ago I had another TrueNorth employee, Will Tuebel on the show.

Today I'm chatting with Kim Loughridge and I wanted to have her on the show because she really gets leadership.  During the time I worked with Kim it became crystal clear that she understood what it took to be a leader, valued the power of effective communication and was always working to be in a growth mindset.

Her leadership experience has been varied in style and during our time together, I was able to see the difference in the outcomes in communication style and the value in what I believe to be effective communication.

Kim has a lot to share with you today so whether you are officially a leader in an organization or not, I believe everyone is called to be a leader of some sort and I know you will gain massive value from what Kim has to has.

The Right Practice

The Right Practice

November 27, 2020

Welcome to the show!

I've got a great episode for you today, one where I will be going against the grain of what others tell you to do and what you might think you have to do to get the voice impact you want.

Today I'm talking about practice and how you probably need to reframe how much practice you need.

One of the forms of resistance I see in people is this belief that they have to practice a lot or that practicing a lot is going to fix their issues.

It's's resistance.

Yes, you need to practice but there is no point in practice if you aren't practicing the right thing. Worse, is if you over practice because over practicing brings in an entirely different level of problems and you may not realize it.

In this episode, I talk about finding your version of practice and what that actually looks like,

I discuss the pitfalls of over practice and why the belief of just needing to practice is costing you.

I hope to work with you and get you ready to have a voice that makes people listen in 2021!


Is Your Voice Ready?

Is Your Voice Ready?

November 24, 2020

Welcome to the show!

Are you ready?  Is your voice ready to answer the question, the call?  Is your voice ready if you get blindsided and have no prep time to answer?

Two of the biggest contracts of my life happened when I did not even see them coming.

I turned the corner, was asked a question and BOOM!  I was hired.


I was able to deliver at that moment without preparation.

I was able to sound confident like the expert I am.

I was able to create an instant emotional connection.

I was able to make my listener feel something, compel them to take the action I wanted them to take.

Are you ready to do that without any preparation?  Without any practice?

Most people are not.

In fact, most people are getting ready to get ready...

That won't cut it.  That won't ever cut it.

What's interesting is that the people that I continue to see getting ready to be ready...I don't know if they'll ever be ready?


They keep buying into their own tricks of their sub-conscious, the lies of their mind.

I want you to be ready so that's what I'm talking about today.

If you want to get ready in my Black Friday offer, then make sure you email me, for your special link to my offer. 

Let's get you ready for 2021 starting NOW!
