How to Sound Professional, Not Too Casual, Not Like a Jerk Episode #132

How to Sound Professional but Not Like a Jerk Episode #132

Today’s episode is based on a question from a listener but with a little bit of an addition.  The listener asked me how do they sound professional without sounding like the B word. 

I’m addressing that but I”m also talking about the opposite that I hear from a lot and that is, if I speak with a conversational voice I won’t sound professional.

So, again we have to find the balance and ultimately take down the masks and reveal the real, best version of who you are.

If you struggle to own your power but still be kind and professional and the expert then today’s episode is for you!

Episode #131 Are Vocal Masks Keeping You From the Next Level?

Welcome to the show!  Today I’m talking all about vocal masks and barriers.

Do you have vocal masks?  Well, you probably do you just may not know it.  Many, many people have them, they are put in place by the sub-conscious mind to protect you.  But, what ends up happening is they become an obstacle keeping you from getting to the next level.

The emotion behind a vocal mask becomes a vocal barrier and that really keeps people out, repels them, pushes them away.

If you think you might have a vocal mask or want to find out if you do, then you don’t want to miss today’s episode!

Episode #109 Speak Your Truth Beautifully, What Does That Even Mean?

Welcome to the show!

Today I’m talking about the tagline you have heard me speak many times, speak your truth, just do it beautifully.

The other day someone asked me what that even means?

I figured I best explain!

Speaking your truth beautifully is about saying what you need to say, using your voice but using it from a place of confidence, kindness, boundary setting, love and in the best interest of you and the person you are speaking to.

I think you’ll like this episode!
