#1: Breathing is the key and fundamental to a quality voice.
#2: Are you talking too soft? You are not having enough breath support. Learn to breathe with the support of your diaphragm.
#3: Are you the speed-talker? Open your mouth wide, relax your jaw muscle and breathe deeply. Keep your speaking rate at 140-160 words/min.
#4: Do you sound too young? You need to find your optimal pitch range, create resonance in your chest, and of course breathe deeply.
#5: Don't clear your throat. It harms your vocal folds (vocal cords). Instead, drink more water and avoid dairy food and dairy drink.
#6: Your voice tells so much about you. Increase your awareness on how you sound in every situation and what image you are projecting.
#7: Take a deep breath before you speak, be it over the phone or in formal settings, you'll sound more grounded and self-assured.
#8: Give depth to the words you say. It is one of the best ways to beating monotone.
#9: Avoid these mistakes: not enough breath support, not articulating every word and syllable, hence sound unsure and uncomfortable.
#10: Did you experience hoarseness after talking for 1 day? You can eliminate it by breathing with the support of your diaphragm.
#11: Bigger volume does not equal to higher pitch. To have a bigger volume, breathe with support of diaphragm and project your voice by using your pelvic muscle.
#12: When you find resonance in all your cavities, you find your optimum pitch and your own innate voice.
#13: Don't use "higher" to describe volume. Use "bigger" or "louder" instead. "Higher" is for pitch.
#14: When raising your volume, your pitch is not supposed to go up.
#15: Characteristics of your signature voice: speak from your heart; breathe with support of your diaphragm; have resonance in all your five major cavities.
#16: There's no bad voice, but bad posture, shallow breathing, and tension. Take note of these 3, you'll have a wonderful voice.
#17: Use all your 5 cavities for better voice projection: throat, voice box, mouth, nose, AND chest!
#18: Ironically, most voice coaches don't even use all five cavities themselves. Their voice sounds thin and falls out of their optimal pitch range.
#19: 4Cs of a leadership voice: Clarity, Confidence, Command, Concern.
#20: Use your voice to paint a picture for your audience.
#21: You are your voice. You are not just speaking with your throat or mouth. Speak with your heart, better yet, your whole body.
#22: Resonance is what makes a voice rich, warm and yes, sexy. A voice with resonance sings out your true self. You feel confident and authentic.
#23: Can you hear your breath? If yes, you are breathing incorrectly. Relax and practice breathing with the support of your diaphragm.
#24: You don't use your diaphragm to breathe. You use your diaphragm to support your breathing.
#25: The biggest mistake people make about voice is they never record their voice and listen back. The sound you hear in your head and the sound others hear are two totally different sounds.
