Episode #88 Create Better Connections w/ One Simple Phrase

Episode #88 Create Better Connections w/ One Simple Phrase

Welcome to the show!

Today's episode is a little different. Normally I speak directly about the voice but today I"m talking about a very special phrase, a secret weapon that I use with my private clients. Today I'm talking about what I call connection phrases.

The voice is instrumental in building (and ruining) relationships. The connector phrases do something magical, it makes people know that they are heard and that's really what we want, to feel heard. Every person on earth wants to be heard.

This is a real game changing technique for building connections in business and in relationships. I think you are really going to love this episode and I know if you will practice these and implement them, you will see massive shifts in your life.

If you're interested in joining my 5-week Confident Voice on Live STream and Video Course, I'd love to have you! I've got some amazing bonuses that are available for a few more days including a podcast workshop!

Episode #86 Using the Right Voice Element to Get Results

Episode #86 Using the Right Voice Element to Get Results

Welcome to the podcast!

I'm really glad your with me today because today's topic is going to help catapult you to the next level.

We make voice choices and most of the ones we make are laid into our muscle memory from our voice story. Often times we try to think our way into a more captivating voice but the truth is, what's in the top layer of the muscle memory is what is going to deliver. It's essential to lay in a new top layer.

But, there is even more to this. We have been led to believe someone along the way that certain voice choices are going to get us certain results. In today's episode, I'm going to dispell that myth! There are push voice elements and pull voice elements and we need all of them. We also need to use all elements of vocal variety so that we can really take our audience on a voice journey and touch them at their emotional core.

I'm covering all of this in today's episode!

Episode #84 Stop Relying on Speed to Keep Our Attention

Episode #84 Stop Relying on Speed to Keep Our Attention

Welcome to the show!

Today we are talking about a topic that I deal with on a regular basis and something that I hear people mention a lot! "I go fast so I can keep my audience's attention."

Well, here's the truth...that will never work. The very thing you are trying to achieve can never happen if you rely on the voice element of speed.

Speed is a wonderful tool, used sparingly but what keeps our attention is being captivated. So, how do you captivate? Well, you use all elements of variety, all five of them and you take us on a voice journey. You become unpredictable. By using just one vocal variety element you are predictable.

When you make that one choice and it's speed, you are adding more to the mix. When you go fast, we can't always follow you, in fact, more than not we can't follow you. Remember, we don't know what you know. By using speed, you are giving us permission to check out.

I think you'll love this episode and I have no doubt benefit from it!

If you want to really learn how to sound confident and captivate the audience, especially on camera in live streams and videos, then join my 5-Day Voice on Live Stream Challenge, it starts July 9th and you can sign up here:

Episode #83 Your Voice is Key to Your Sales Success

Episode #83 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://captivatetheroom.com/5-day-challenge-live-stream-like-a-business-influencer/
