No Rewatching

Welcome to the Show!

I’ve got a great episode for you today, stop watching your videos!  or audios or any playback for that matter.

I know, it goes against the grain of what you’ve always been taught.

The main problem is, your subconscious won’t let you be objective.  Also, if you look at your videos you will be assessing what you need to do in your next video and that means you are going to be in your head.  That does not solve the problem, it actually creates a bigger problem.

Ultimately, we want to be working from, trusting we know.

Captivate the room 8-week group coaching program starts this week, don’t miss it.


Shades of Shades

Welcome to the show!

I recently had the opportunity to speak at a few events and one of the highlights of those presentations was speaking about shades of feeling within shades of feelings and just how far we can take the nuances of delivering ALL of our own shades.

We have a fullest expression of who we are, a full expression of feelings, bits of who we are, the experience we represent yet we don’t reveal all of those shades…not even close.

I hear all of those shades as layer 7 when I work with someone, those shades are my North Star to guide me to get you where you need to be.

In today’s episode, I’m talking about shades within shades and why they are so important to your next level of success.

Welcome to 2023!

Welcome to the show AND to 2023!

In today’s episode I’m riffing on the big voice lessons I learned last year, the toughest year of my life.  I’m also talking plans, big plans for 2023.

I’m curious what you learned last year and what kind of reflection you do at the end of the year?

I hope to be a part of your world and hear your voice this year.  I’ve got tons of opportunities coming up for us to interact.

Let’s have the best year ever!  It’s time for your voice to be heard and for you to make a BIG impact with your message.


Resistance and Regret

Resistance and results, it’s much harder to get the results you want with resistance.

Welcome to the show!  Today as we head into a new year, I want to talk about resistance and not just the obvious resistance.  I want to talk about the sneaky kind, the kind of resistance that feels like you are making the right choice, you are playing big.  You aren’t your subconscious has tricked you into believing you are great onstage even though you aren’t sounding great right now.  Your subconscious wants you to believe that everyone loves you and that you really have nothing else to learn.

This is resistance, this blocks the kind of results you can have.

Resistance has to go; it’s never going to serve you and will always keep you from making the impact you want.

Resistance is protection and when you go to that place where you feel you need to defend your position or get a nerve hit on the ego, then it’s time to shine a light on where you are holding back, where you are playing safe.

I see the people who go all in on working on their voice get massive results, their entire inner game changes, their revenue and following, confidence and ability to captivate the room ALL go to the next level.

But, the people who want to resist what I’m saying, push back, need to prove or be right, they get results but nothing like what the non-resistant people get.

In 2023 you have no room to “think” we love you and that you are great at connection, no, it’s time to take your voice to the next level.

Bad Advice Part 2

Welcome to the Show!

Turning on, performing…nope, this is never going to work and will suck the life out of you and your business.  Yet for years, this is how we taught.  Unfortunately, some people still teach that you have to perform in video or on stage or sales calls.  Some people just do it because it protects them.  After all, if I’m a character of myself, an on version and you don’t like me I’m still safe.  The subconscious also knows that you can’t connect with me when I’m on, performing, because there is a bullet proof barrier around me.

People are seeking connection on a level we’ve never seen before.  People are seeking authenticity like never before too.  It’s critical that we stop performing or turning on and uncover the real version of our voice.  In order to show up authentically it’s critical to stop putting things on, adding on more layers that create a slick version of you.

I want to know you, I want the experience of you.

Voice is like…

Welcome to the podcast!

Today, I’ve got a question for you.  Voice is like…?  I recently heard my friend and former student Rita of Unbox Your Gift Podcast interview a politician.  In that episode Rita asked this woman a question about politics but the question was so profound and so relatable to voice that I had to do an episode on that very question.

Voice is like an athlete, an actor or a musical instrument.  There is so much more to the question but that is the core of the question and today’s episode.

I think you will love this episode and if you want to hear Rita’s episode with the politician, I’ve linked that episode below.

Voice is Critical in a Recession

Welcome to the show!

Some say we are in an economic downturn.  I say, you need your voice more than ever if that’s the case.  In a moment in time when it seems like working on one’s voice would be a luxury, it’s actually one of the most critical things you can work on.


All the insecurities your client or potential client faces, best not come out in your voice or it’s deal off.  The problem is, chances are excellent they will.  Sounds of hesitation are processed in the subconscious of the buyer as a big ole no.

So many sounds that come from your own insecurities, your subconscious, are coming out in your voice and they are costing you in tiny ways that add up to big financial loses.

Now more than ever your ideal clients need reassurance, trust, safety, expertise and knowing you are the person that is not going to drop the ball of them.

Voice is the stumbling block or the highway to your next level of success. What’s coming out in your voice?

Bad Advice Part 1


Welcome to the show!

I actually don’t want you to think of what I’m teaching today as bad advice, I want you to see that some advice is working against you.

Today, I’m talking about the concept of just go live, just show up no matter how bad you are.

First, there is no bad.  Second, you could immediately repel your ideal client and it might take them awhile to come find you again.

I do believe that just showing up is not the answer.  Yes, I want you to show up and well before you are ready but it’s critical to take into consideration sounds that really could hurt the initial experience your ideal client has when they first hear your voice.

You may be shocked by this concept but after you listen to the episode, I think it will all make sense.

Creating a Massive Referral Business

Creating a massive referral business is something I hear many people say they wish they could do.

The problem I find is they are focusing on the wrong things.  I have a massive referral business and I built it simply from the elevated experience I create for my buyer.

When it comes to creating a referral business and a great experience, we have to look at authenticity to what degrees of it we use in relation to what we want our ideal client to experience.

When we can line up the best version of the authenticity, we need to reveal it in order to create the best buyer experience where they know who we are and what this experience will be like from start to finish. Then we can effortlessly draw in clients that want to refer us and they then refer us to all their colleagues.  The bonus, they leave us raving reviews and become customers for life.  My students generally never leave.
