Self-Care for Extremely Busy Women

Jan 24, 2023

We begin today’s show with a blog I wrote about a key to personal power … and that’s clarity. Do you actually KNOW what you want in this life—or need? Most of us haven’t slowed down enough to find out. That’s why I read a blog called ‘What if I Don’t Know What I Want?’


If this rings a bell … then this one’s for you, friend. Enjoy.


Cool guest on today’s show—Samara Bay. She’s a voice coach to actors, influencers, and corporate bigwigs in Hollywood. And she shares the fundamentals of shring your voice to reflect your true power.


Samara says: “Hating your voice is a systemic problem, not a personal feeling.” In other words, a lot of us hate how we sound. But can we change it? You bet.


Among other things, I learned:

  • How to use your voice to get what you want
  • Our shame around our voices
  • That we have a ‘true’ voice that is baseline authentic
  • Habits that can create a particular voice image
  • Why we may feel we need to get ‘permission’ to be empowered speakers
  • Technical tips for creating authentic voice


I hope you enjoy this—and grab some mojo from it!
