The 6 Keys to a Confident Voice

Sound More Confident – Speaking Confidently – The Voice of Confidence!

Today I’ve been playing around on Twitter as I’ve only just discovered how the # works! (Embarrassing but true!) So I hunted for #confidence and #voice and although I didn’t search exhaustively I couldn’t see anything much about how to use your voice to sound more confident, if you want to.

There are many times when sounding confident could be useful!

Is Sound a Secret Healer?

Just a quick blog post today as I have loads to do right now. But I felt moved to jot down some thoughts on whether Sound is an underrated healer – or damager!
