Julie Fogh and Casey Erin Clark, co-founders of Vital Voice Training, are excited to share "Voice (is)" - a podcast where they have conversations with people whose voices they love to dive into the good, the bad, and the messy of what makes your voice YOURS.

Expect actionable advice about public speaking, confidence, nerves, in-office communication, etc, as well as deeper discussions on what power looks (and sounds!) like, how to let go of perfectionism and use fear to your advantage, and how to show up as your authentic self in a world full of unconscious bias.

Vital Voice Training is a voice, public speaking, and communication coaching company founded to help clients communicate with savvy, charisma, and confidence. Whether you are giving a speech, leading a sales appointment or a brand new team, pitching your big idea for funding, or just finding the courage to make your voice heard, co-founders Julie Fogh and Casey Erin Clark’s extensive backgrounds in speech coaching and professional acting give them a unique perspective on what makes people want to listen. For the client, the result is your voice: amplified (not just louder).

Julie and Casey sit down with Disaster Clean up expert Jackie Carpenter to talk all things dirty. Along the way they discuss how taking things off the beaten path can be a pathway to success, gathering your team, and building success off messes no one else wants to touch.

  • Earning respect takes a combination of showing up and doing the work, knowing when to assert yourself, and when to sit back and learn. You can’t demand respect. 
  • Opportunities don’t always wear name tags, require a fancy degree, or get good grades. (When a business lands in your lap, don’t talk yourself out if it, TAKE IT. )
  • We're not cutting good at cutting ties with consultants or employees that need to go because we're scared. We don't really know how to break up with somebody. If the relationship isn’t working, isn’t additive, or you’ve moved beyond it, it’s necessary to learn how to break up.
  • Our struggles, needs and obstacles are an inherent part of our story. You get to define what’s a dirty little secret, what holds power over you, and how you get to share your story.
  • Ask for help. We are not meant to figure out every situation for our selves.  Sometimes asking for help, while it can feel like admitting failure, is actually the fastest way to get things on track, personally and in business.  Being a person people can count on means having people YOU can count on.
  • LESSON: You don't get to choose your moments.
