Episode #80 Is Your Voice Doing its Job?

Episode #80 Is Your Voice Doing its Job?

Welcome to the show!

In today's episode, I'm talking about the job of your voice, that's right, your voice has a job to do.

Your voice is the greatest instrument you have to take the audience on a voice journey. Your voice is fully capable of touching our emotions and in turn affecting our senses. If you want to connect with your audience, compel them to take action and captivate the room, your voice needs to do its job.

Part of the problem is your voice has just been locked into submission by your subconscious mind. I get it, your mind is trying to protect your heart and that's great. But, the result is a voice that can't fully deliver, can't fully bring your words to life.

The voice should flow out freely making it easier for others to connect to you,

The voice should utilize all elements of vocal variety to touch our senses,

The voice should take us on a journey, bringing the words to life,

The voice should get us excited about your call to action and inspire us to do so.

Does your voice do all of that? If it does, then you will catapult your success.

If it doesn't, you might be left wondering what's wrong. It's not your words, it's not what your thinking, it's your voice not doing what it could do for you.

If you find that your voice is slacking on the job, don't be too hard on it, it's just been trained to play it safe. But, now that the light is shining on the darkness, it's time to step out with bold voice choices, a voice that flows freely speaking your truth, a voice that captivates us by touching our emotions and compels us.

Episode #79 Using Your Voice, Controlling the Conversation

Episode #79 Using Your Voice, Controlling the Conversation

Welcome to the show.

Today I'm going to talk to you about something I bet you've never thought about!

We spend a whole lot of time trying to control the outcome of situations trying to get what we want.

Where we miss the boat is in trying to control the outcome and NOT controlling the conversation with the use of our voice.

What I'm talking about here is using your voice in the conversation to truly let people know who you are and what you stand for.

The voice is the tool that brings the words to life. What you are putting out directly to your customers and audience and people in your life is determining how they feel about you, what they think about you.

What are they thinking about you?

Do they have a deep understanding of your passion? Your beliefs? Whether they can trust you?

All of that is determined in your voice.

When we keep pushing hard and fast and relying on the words the audience has no idea how they should feel about us.

If you want to change the outcome, to get what you want...you don't want to miss a minute of this episode!

Want to find out what your voice barriers are? They are getting in the way of you making the impact you want and controlling the conversation to get the outcome you want.

Go to www.captivatetheroom.com and you'll have an option to send me an audio. I'll take a listen and get back to you with your voice barriers.

Episode #77 Changing Your Voice Story, Changing Your Success

Episode #77 Changing Your Voice Story, Changing Your Success

Welcome to the podcast!

Today I'm talking about the psychology of the voice story and how it is your core problem.

The more I work with the voice story the more I see just how much it is trying to control the voice that you put out into the world.

I've seen this for years, 25 plus to be exact and it's clearly the core problem when it comes to what you put out.

It's just not possible to deliver a voice that is different than what you've laid into your muscle memory, what you've laid in is from your psychology of the voice story.

The story has to be changed and a new one put into the muscle memory if you want to change things for good. The goal is that you never have to "think" about what you are going to do with your voice to captivate the room and compel the audience to take the action you want.

The goal is that every time you open your mouth your sound flows out with ease and you sound captivating and compelling. Changing the voice story and putting in a new layer of muscle memory will make that happen and it's easier than you think!

Find out more about your voice story and how you can change it in today's episode.

Want to hear more about what your voice barriers are? I can tell you exactly what they are, just go over to www.captivatetheroom.com to find out more!

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.
