EP175: Women's Vocal Patterns That Kill Sales: Power-Undermining Sounds

Profitable Joyful Consulting

Sep 5 2023 • 53 mins

“By the time women are 12 years old, they have been completely trained with, ‘Say whatever you want to say, but don't upset anybody and be nice.’” - Tracy Goodwin

Women are programmed to be nice and quiet, to ask permission, to be tentative, to make all these sounds that make a person go, “Nope, I don’t want to listen to her.” We’re often stuck between a rock and a hard place when it comes to using our voices and expressing ourselves fully.

If you ask this episode’s guest, Voice Coach & Communication Consultant Tracy Goodwin, we have to start on the inside to change all those stories, to change the foundation that was given to us that we never asked for. That’s how we start to bring our real, authentic selves through in our lives and businesses to build more genuine connections, own what we’re putting out there, be more seen and heard, and get more clients.
