Sally is a voice coach who helps people realise their best voice and embrace public speaking with confidence. She’s a former TV news reporter, company spokesperson, and speech and drama teacher.
Sally has her own podcast called That Voice Podcast and enjoys making comedy TikToks, like reading song lyrics like a news report.
We were able to cover a lot in this episode as Sally was very open and generous with her story.
We talk about:
– How she built such a large following on TikTok and what that has done for her personally.
– How to deal with negativity when you have such a large following
– What holds people back when they aren’t utilising their voice properly and how to overcome this
– Her experience building her business and what she would say to others thinking about building their own business
– What her best experiences in business have been
– Some of the biggest challenges in her career
– And even what her biggest on-air blunder was. It’s quite a funny story.
Enjoy the episode. Sally is a great person and was a pleasure to talk to.
