Cohort? Mastermind? Both?

I always thought cohort was a singular word. Like partner, or companion. Likewise, I always thought mastermind was singular, and was usually preceded by the adjective “criminal.” I thought it was a synonym for “evil genius.” As I delve deeper into the business world as a solopreneur (another word I didn’t even know existed), IContinue reading “Cohort? Mastermind? Both?”

Pay Attention

I think I probably have Adult ADHD or ADD. Not sure which, but when I took an online test a few years back, I got to the end of it and it said, “Now, add up your points,” and I said, “Points? I just numbered a sheet wrote down √s for the ones that applied.Continue reading “Pay Attention”

What if you were your own ideal client

I’m currently taking Sara Campbell’s Branding Bootcamp™ course in order to get some more clarity on what I have to offer students – identify just what my message is and how my message can come across most efficiently to my ideal clients. The first thing we did in Class #1 is identify an avatar forContinue reading “What if you were your own ideal client”

Strength, Softness, and Wildness – Becoming a Curiously Strong Performer

I was going through some emails in the Somatic Voicework™ The LoVetri Method forum today and someone made a reference to a Brené Brown quote: “Strong Backs, Soft Fronts, and Wild Hearts.” That intrigued me, because I’ve always been a fan of Brené Brown, and I find her choice of pithy phrases to be inspirational.Continue reading “Strength, Softness, and Wildness – Becoming a Curiously Strong Performer”

Why Co-Work?

Some of the benefits of the pandemic and working online have included things that we would never have thought about doing when we were in-person. One of those things is the concept of co-working. What is co-working? Why should we do it? And how does it apply to the voice student/professional? Co-working existed before everyoneContinue reading “Why Co-Work?”

Bragging Boldly

A few weeks ago, I wrote about the idea of confident humility vs false modesty. in which I talked about the need to be confident in your abilities and not to be afraid to share that confidence with others. And then this happened. On Sunday, one of my former Milwaukee colleagues, who is now inContinue reading “Bragging Boldly”

Bloom or wilt?

I have written twice about blooming where you’re planted. Both times in the summer of 2017, a month apart. The truth is that I forgot I wrote the first one when I wrote the second. But that’s okay, because the first one was the seed, so to speak, and the second was  its germination. (AtContinue reading “Bloom or wilt?”

Back to 2021-2022!

Time to head back to 2021-2022 and to another year of curiously strong singing and performing!

Show Up or Show Off

One thing that is misunderstood about performers is that we do this because we need to show off. Because we are full of ourselves, we think we’re all that, we’re too big for our britches, we’re extroverts, we’re superficial, and all the other things m̶y̶ ̶m̶o̶t̶h̶e̶r̶ ̶s̶a̶i̶d̶ that people often say. And perhaps there areContinue reading “Show Up or Show Off”

Confident Humility vs. False Modesty

False modesty: behavior in which a person pretends to have a low opinion of his or her own abilities or achievements (Cambridge English dictionary) Have you ever seen a performance that was really, truly amazing, and then you saw the person afterwards and told them so, and they responded with something like: You’re just sayingContinue reading “Confident Humility vs. False Modesty”
