Setting Your Intentions and Choosing a Theme for the New Year (Voicing Your Brand Podcast, episode 10)

Do you choose a theme or a word to set your intentions as you walk into a new year? 

New Year’s resolutions usually go by the wayside within a few weeks, but I’ve found that having a word before me is helpful. In this episode Tami shares a plan for the first quarter of 2019, and how she decides what her theme word for the year should be. It’s often not what she would like it to be, but it ends up creating a year of thoughtful momentum in an area that needs work.

Tami’s word for this year is GO. What’s your word?

Here are links to what we talked about today –

Keenya Kelly is an accomplished business executive, teacher and inspirational speaker – she found her voice by writing and speaking about understanding your God-given purpose and living up to your fullest potential. She has a powerful message of overcoming fear, self-doubt and divorce to create successful six-figure businesses.

But she didn’t start out that way. After a painful divorce, Keenya felt her voice had been silenced. She had lost everything. Yet, she still had big expectations and big faith and DECIDED this was going to be THAT. She made up her mind to succeed, and she hasn’t stopped since.

Keenya says everyone should have a job, a dream and a hustle. Her end goal is to have a thriving ministry, but she doesn’t want to be a broke minister! In this episode of Voicing Your Brand, Keenya shares her journey to clarity and finding her voice for business. She says the secret is taking action: action creates clarity.

Finding Your Voice with Voice Actor Katie Leigh (Voicing Your Brand, episode 7)

My guest today is Katie Leigh. Katie is a popular and talented voiceover veteran. She is beloved as Connie Kendall in the world’s longest running international radio drama, Adventures in Odyssey. Other roles she’s played include Baby Rowlf in the Emmy Award-Winning Jim Henson’s Muppet Babies cartoon series, Honker Muddlefoot in Darkwing Duck, Sheila the Thief in Dungeons and Dragons, Richie in Richie Rich, Sunni Gummi of Disney’s Adventures of the Gummi Bears, Alex in Totally Spies and young Han Solo for Lego Star Wars: Padawan Menace, and many others.

Katie also has decades of experience in every form of Voiceover from toys, to games to radio, to elearning, specializing in boys and girls voices and many foreign accents.

We had a fun conversation about finding your voice. Katie has a young sounding voice, and was told by a college journalism professor that she would never get work behind a microphone unless she did something about her voice. Well, she did something, all right. She became a sought-after voice actor in animation work. We chat about how her life has been a series of divine appointments, and that even with her success, she still sometimes feels like she is not taken seriously because of her voice. She is learning that confidence is the key to overcoming the stigma – that, and knowing your stuff. Become an expert and you will speak with confidence. I know you will enjoy our candid conversation between friends.

Does Practicing Gratitude Help Your Business? (Voicing Your Brand, episode 5)

Does Practicing Gratitude Help Your Business? (Voicing Your Brand, episode 5)

It’s Thanksgiving week and this is the month where we typically turn our thoughts toward Thankfulness and gratitude. Since this is the natural time for reflection as we approach the holidays, I thought we would dive in to some of the ways practicing gratitude can shift your mind, heart and business. Maybe we should keep an attitude of gratitude at the front of our minds all year long.

As a society, we are quick to see the negative in a situation. In fact, it’s been said that we typically tend to give negative feedback ten times more often than positive. If that’s true, then we also are on the receiving end of the negative feedback ten times more than hearing a positive angle of things.

A quick google search for how does gratitude help business will come up with articles in such well known business publications such as Forbes, Inc., Entrepreneur and fast company.

There are several reasons why a daily practice of gratitude can help improve your business.

  • Showing gratitude builds trust and promotes excellence. This is especially important if you are leading a team.
  • Gratitude leads to happiness and productivity.
  • Having an attitude of gratitude draws people to you. (And we KNOW that is always good for business!)

In this episode, I referenced these articles:

Forbes Magazine and Inc. Magazine
