speak your truth May 16, 2019

Have you ever been totally nervous to share something? Because I am today! I had all the excuses about why I should just send another warm up video in my weekly newsletter and save this announcement for next week/next month/next year.

But then I realized that I have a super unique opportunity. Because I can actually model the content of my new project at the same time as I share my news.

I’m going to use the framework from my “How To Speak Your...

Develop your presence and you might even make a music video! 🎢πŸŽ₯

Uncategorized Apr 18, 2019

So this picture may be a bit blurry, but I'm still so excited about it because it's from the other day when I was directing a music video!!

I know, say what?!

I actually spent 5 years of my early career primarily as a theatre and film director, but this was totally new for me. So why was I directing a music video? Because of Ashley. (She's the one with her hair up in the lower left-hand corner of the pic).

Ashley’s been my client for over a year....

5 Days to Confidence on Camera! πŸ“ΉπŸ€³πŸŒŸ

Uncategorized Mar 07, 2019

Raise your hand if you've ever felt nervous recording yourself on camera. ‍

If you fear or avoid being on video, you're certainly not alone in your resistance. A large majority of people experience the whole public-speaking-is-scarier-than-death thing. But that’s not an excuse... if you've got a fire in your belly to share a message with the world, you're going to need to 'put yourself out there.'

Maybe you want to create the online business you've...

How To Speak Your Truth: The Conclusion

speak your truth Jan 31, 2019

Here it is, the Conclusion video of the How To Speak Your Truth mini-course!

I'm going full-on philosophical with you today in this final video of the course (the thoughts I'm sharing are specifically derived from Vedic philosophy). I know that what I'm saying is controversial, so see if you agree...

My argument is that though there may be a sort of absolute "Truth" (with a capital T) embedded in our universe, we as individuals don't get to decide what that is. The...

How To Speak Your Truth, Step 7: Communication

speak your truth Jan 24, 2019

We've arrived at the seventh and final step of the How To Speak Your Truth mini-course: Communication. This is the part of the process when you actually go back and forth with the outside world!

As amazing as it would be to live in a vacuum where nothing external influences us, that's definitely not reality. There are always others around us who have their own sensations, thoughts, emotions, and desires too. So how do we actually converse?

To understand how, I...

I'm singing Madonna right now because you know, you know, you got to... express yourself!

That's right friends - we're back with the sixth step of the How To Speak Your Truth mini-course and this is the big one: Expression!

Over the course of the first four steps of the How To Speak Your Truth process, we identified our truth by paying attention to our sensations, thoughts, emotions, and desires. In the fifth step we took a moment to pause and come back into contact with the outside...

How To Speak Your Truth, Step 5: The Pause

speak your truth Jan 10, 2019

Okay we're back with the fifth step of the How To Speak Your Truth mini-course - in this one we're gonna talk about the Pause.

Up to this point, everything we've done (tuning into our Sensations, Thoughts, Emotions, and Desires) is about connecting to our internal world. It's about discovering our inner truth... what I like to call the Embodiment process.

The pause is so crucial, then, because it's the spacious gap where we reconnect with the external world. And...

How to reduce muscle tension and release your voice πŸ—£βœ¨(a FREE webinar!)

vocal health tips Jan 08, 2019
 

I've got some fun news: I'm going to be offering a FREE webinar this month! (Woot!!)

If you're not familiar with my story, I became a voice coach because I had issues with my own voice. To summarize it all briefly, I was over-singing and abusing my vocal cords during my final semester of college. I lost my voice for a period of time due to a vocal hemorrhage, acid reflux, and muscle tension dysphonia.

The muscle tension part was the real humdinger. Because even when my cords healed, I was...

How To Speak Your Truth, Step 4: Desire

speak your truth Jan 03, 2019

Welcome to the the fourth step of the How To Speak Your Truth mini-course - in this one we're gonna talk about desire.

You can determine your desire by asking yourself the answer to the question: what do I want right now? But if you're like most other humans, chances are that you have trouble answering that question a lot of the time. (Um, hi me too ‍)

As humans we are designed to be tapped into, expressing, and pursuing our deepest desires. They point us in the direction...

How To Speak Your Truth, Step 3: Emotions

speak your truth Dec 27, 2018

Hey friends, let's talk about our emotions. Do you allow yourself to experience your emotions freely? Do your stop yourself from having big feelings? Do you even know what your emotions are most of the time? 

Identifying your emotions is a super important process. Because emotions are sneaky - if you don't acknowledge them, they have a tendency to sabotage your ability to speak your truth. We've all done some version of saying "I hate you"...
