Creating an Invitation with Your Voice

Welcome to the show!

Creating an invitation

Did you know you can create an invitation with your voice?

You can and you must.

Most people don’t create an invitation because they are pushing, driving their ideas, their words.

Most people feel they need to convince or say a lot of words but that shuts the door on inviting people in through your voice.

Trying to get it right, having a grip on your voice…no invitation.

Think about when you use your voice in a way that is inviting…?

Your people closest to you.  You create an invitation because you feel comfortable, less or not judged but yet when you go to the office or online in a video or podcast or even in an interview, no invitation.

Judgement or the potential of it so you have to pull back…or so you think.

But it’s costing you.

The expert invites us in.

The expert knows they know.

The expert knows they don’t have to know it all.

When you can use your voice as an invitation, the entire world changes…so does your following, retention, revenue!

Speaking with Authority

Speaking with authority, commanding ANY space you walk into.  That’s today’s topic and it’s a critical one.  Commanding authority, filling the space, ensuring you are captivating your listener and having a presence when you go into any arena, whether you are comfortable or not is critical.


Far too often we don’t speak with authority and for many people, it’s circumstantial.  If I feel comfortable, if I’ve practiced, if I know what I’m going to say then I can speak with authority but what about the other times?


I might even challenge whether you truly speak with as much authority as you could.


Today in this episode I’m going to be touching on a very important topic, authority that is in a rubber band ball with commanding a presence, speaking with confidence, feeling confident…


My friend Steve and I will be teaching to commanding the speaking and sounding like the authority in our upcoming Masterclass this coming Wednesday June 22nd at 1:00pm EDT


You don’t want to miss this training!  What Steve and I will be teaching is applicable to professionals, executives, small business owners, entrepreneurs.

Presence and Impact

This week’s podcast is all about how actors and on camera training is actually similar to entrepreneurs and business professionals and their goals when it comes to using their voices.

It might seem like they are different…but they aren’t.  Actors and professionals are after the same things…presence, commanding the space, being memorable, making an impact, drawing people close for deep connection…

I have to tell you, the number of times I’ve heard from someone that they aren’t going to be an actor or a speaker is so frustrating.

Maybe not if you don’t want to be an actor or if you don’t want to learn slick speaker voice but this is much bigger than slick speaker voice.

Do you want to command the space?  Have a presence?

If you are doing a video as an entrepreneur, a zoom call with a client as a professional, standing on a stage …you want to command the space and have presence.

So do actors.

But they also want to make an emotional connection with their listeners.   Actors want all eyes on them as they captivate their audience.

They want to use their eyes in such a way that you lean in and connect.

So do business people and entrepreneurs.

And everyone wants to create special moments, magical moments that you can share with the audience.

Finding Your Celebrity with Steve Bridgewater

Welcome to the Show

I can’t even begin to tell you how much you do NOT want to miss today’s episode on the Captivate the Room podcast.

With me on the show today is my friend Steve Bridgewater.

Steve is the coach that brought Heath Ledger his brilliant performance as the Joker.  Steve’s also the coach that changed the game for Robert Patrick, and led Brad Pitt to brilliance.  I guarantee you that at least one of your favorite actors or shows was touched by Steve.

Just like I work in sounds the size of a grain of sand, Steve works in movement so nuanced you would have NEVER known how much something so small was costing you.

In today’s episode we talk about being stiff and how we feel that through the lens of your IG reel or videos

How much being uncomfortable is costing you and how uncomfortable it’s making us feel,

Why you bobbling head is distracting us from your message and causing us to scroll on by,

Likeability and how critical that is to your on camera presence,

How eye contact is the death to whatever your doing and how much impact you are NOT making without out,

AND so much more including great stories about your favorite actors.

This episode is for you if you are ready to step into your own start power and be the celebrity of your business…

I hope you’ll join us, June 22nd.  The link to register for this paid workshop is in my bio.


Steve can teach you things you’ve never seen anyone teach in the business space.

Steve simply looks at your video or watches you deliver your introduction on camera and he is able to instantly give you three or four things you can do better.  Better to draw in your ideal client, rivet them to the point it’s a no brainer they’ll work with you.

When I say there is no one with this experience or unique training anywhere online in the professional and entrepreneurial space…I mean it.

Nowhere else can you learn from the man who made the most iconic Joker of all time funny, transformed The Terminator into a Soprano or was flowing out TWICE to coach Brad Pitt on the set of 12 Monkeys.
