Episode #76 Captivate the Room w/ Bold Voice Choices

Episode #76 Captivate the Room w/ Bold Voice Choices

Welcome to the show!

I'm really excited about today's episode because it's all about pushing you out of your voice box (no pun intended) and into bold choices.

So many times people come to me and they say, "I don't sound captivating". I hear you!

What we work on is getting out of the small and limiting voice box they are working in because of fear or their psychology of the voice story or even their perception. People also work in this box because of perfectionism and wanting to get the words just right, in fact relying on the words can cause this to happen as well.

If we want to captivate the audience we have to learn to make bold choices and commit to them!

In this episode, I'll talk about bold choices,

What they are,

How to make them and how to commit to them.

Once you commit to choices that are bold, exciting and outside of the box your world will begin to change!

If you want to get some great voice tips, make sure you get the Voice Formula, it's free and you can find it on my website at www.captivatetheroom.com

Episode #75 The Sounds We Hear Are Hurting Your Success

Episode #75 The Sounds We Hear Are Hurting Your Success

That's right, that's what I said. Welcome to the show!

I'm glad you are here because I want to share with you the difference between what you think you are putting out and how it's being received.

In your head, you may sound great or maybe you know you aren't sounding as great as you could. But, did you know that different sounds can actually give entirely different meanings?

In today's episode, I'm going to give you some information that will really inspire you to take action on these things you are learning here with me. Because, the very sound that you are delivering, the sound that is laid into your psychology of the voice, is hurting your business because it's saying things to the customer that are not true or might not be true.

Example: if you are quiet, you have no passion. Well, I don't know about you but I've known plenty of passionate people that are quiet, but the customer could easily think you aren't passionate enough about your work to take on their job.

The voice is the tool, like we talked about last week, that will make us feel something. I usually talk about the good it makes us feel but this is not so good.

I think you will really love this episode.

Also, don't forget, if you haven't signed up for the podcast voice challenge it starts next week. You can sign up right here: http://captivatetheroom.com/5-day-challenge-captivate-w-your-voice-in-a-podcast/

Look forward to seeing you in the challenge! And hey, even if you aren't planning on having a podcast, the voice technique I'm teaching is pretty cool and will work anywhere.

Episode #74 The Voice, Not the Words Will Create Connection, Compel and Convert

Episode #74 The Voice, Not the Words Will Create Connection, Compel and Convert

Welcome to the show!

This may be one of my favorite and most important episodes! I continue to see business leaders and entrepreneurs not get where they want to go, not compel, not create connections, not convert sales and it's ALWAYS because they are putting the value on the words. If you are up in your head thinking about the words, if you are focused on the words and getting them out correctly, you can't make me feel anything.

This episode is all about the problem in giving all the power to the words and how you need to pull away from it. The voice is what will make us feel, the vocal variety, what you do with your voice.

Don't miss this episode, it's a game changer!

Episode #73 Not Sounding Confident? Bottom Line It

Episode #73 Not Sounding Confident? Bottom Line It

Welcome to the show!

I'm talking today about your words, specifically words that can create a voice barrier of doubt, or of lack of confidence or of needing reassurance.

What I'm talking about today is stating your ideas and words over and over again in different ways. When you tell us the same thing over and over again we start to doubt you know what you're talking about. The fact of the matter is, you are telling us over and over again because you are sorting it out yourself or maybe needing our approval.

When you tell us the same thing over and over again we start to doubt you know what you're talking about. The fact of the matter is, you are telling us over and over again because you are sorting it out yourself or maybe needing our approval.

Your audience will hear this if you don't bottom line it.

Today, I'm going to teach you about the voice barriers that we hear when you don't bottom line and what you need to do to ensure that you sound confident from your very first word.

I think you are really going to love this episode and you will most likely be shocked to discover that sometimes you don't sound confident because you need to bottom line it!

Ready to podcast? I'd love to help you get your podcast voice on! Join me for my upcoming 5-day Captivate with Your Voice in Your Podcast challenge.

Episode #70 Our Success Lies in Listening w/ Kathleen O'Keeffe

Episode #70 Our Success Lies in Listening w/ Kathleen O'Keeffe

Welcome to the show!

Today I've got my dear friend and amazing energy healer Kathleen O'Keeffe with me. This is not really an interview with Kathleen about the work that she does, even though that would be amazing! But this is rather a conversation between us about listening.

Kathleen and I both feel that listening is essential to our success in our personal lives and in our business. We also both are very concerned with people's inability to not only not listen to others, but their inability to listen to themselves.

I think you are really going to like this episode, an informal chat with life changing information.

We have to start to listening if we are going to succeed both personally and professionally.

We have to start listening if we are going to change the world for the better.
