Episode #89 Stop the Dragging S, Especially for Podcasters and On Camera

Welcome to the show!

As you know we are in the middle of a series, voice technique especially for podcasters.

The truth is that all of the techniques are great for anyone in any form whether it’s live speaking, online presentations, water cooler conversation.  The voice is the most powerful tool you have because it’s how we determine everything about you.

Now, today’s episode is pretty specific to podcasters but anyone can still benefit from it if they have a dragging s.  It’s not the end of the world if you have one but you will get a crisper sound if you get rid of it and it’s not that hard.

The exercise I give in this episode is not hard, it’s just a little strange but if you will do it for about a week you will be able to stop your dragging S and get a sound that might make your life a little easier when it comes to editing.

If you are a podcaster or thinking about becoming one, or you’d just like to learn some great voice technique then you might like to join my 5-Day Voice for Podcasting Challenge.

Episode #81 Your Voice is Key to Your Sales Success

Episode #81 Your Voice is Key to Your Sales Success

Welcome to the show!

Today’s episode is very important because it’s about your voice and selling and I mean, who doesn’t sell at some point?

Now you may not sell a product or service but you still have to sell yourself on occasion.

What far too many people don’t realize is that the voice is instrumental in sales success.

Part of the power of voice in selling is in persuasion but the voice also plays a key role in creating connections which are essential to that know, like and trust factor that precedes selling.  But the voice is also the instrument that has the ability to make me feel, to touch my emotions.  If you want people to buy what your selling or take an action you want them to take, it’s essential to compel them and that is the voice’s job.

In today’s episode, I talk about key ways your voice plays an integral role in your selling success and give a few techniques and tips for what you must have in your voice to increase your sales success.

**Make sure you join the 5-Day voice challenge I’m rolling out on July 9th, Sound More Confident, Like an Influencer in Your Live Streams and Videos.  You can sign up here:  http://new.captivatetheroom.com/5-day-challenge-live-stream-like-a-business-influencer/

Episode #78 Is Your Voice Doing its Job?

Welcome to the show!

In today’s episode, I’m talking about the job of your voice, that’s right, your voice has a job to do.

Your voice is the greatest instrument you have to take the audience on a voice journey.  Your voice is fully capable of touching our emotions and in turn affecting our senses.  If you want to connect with your audience, compel them to take action and captivate the room, your voice needs to do its job.

Part of the problem is your voice has just been locked into submission by your subconscious mind.  I get it, your mind is trying to protect your heart and that’s great.  But, the result is a voice that can’t fully deliver, can’t fully bring your words to life.

The voice should flow out freely making it easier for others to connect to you,

The voice should utilize all elements of vocal variety to touch our senses,

The voice should take us on a journey, bringing the words to life,

The voice should get us excited about your call to action and inspire us to do so.

Does your voice do all of that?  If it does, then you will catapult your success.

If it doesn’t, you might be left wondering what’s wrong.  It’s not your words, it’s not what your thinking, it’s your voice not doing what it could do for you.

If you find that your voice is slacking on the job, don’t be too hard on it, it’s just been trained to play it safe.  But, now that the light is shining on the darkness, it’s time to step out with bold voice choices, a voice that flows freely speaking your truth, a voice that captivates us by touching our emotions and compels us.
