Paul Kolecki is a voice coach who has developed a system that can teach people how to use voice, breath, and visualization techniques to improve pronunciation and reduce an accent. Classically trained as a singer and pianist, he initially made his system for actors who weren’t singers, but later adapted it for public speakers. I asked him about where he got the idea for his system from and how a public speaker can use it to great effect. After speaking with him, I need to stop putting bass in my voice when talking to women. They see right through it!

I was happy to have writer and editor Dr. Tyra Seldon as our special guest. Founder of the Seldon Writing Group, she develops content for schools, websites, businesses, education companies, and non-profit organizations. In her past life, she was an English professor, teaching several literature and writing courses, including business communication and research method courses. She doesn’t hog all her knowledge to herself, as she often hosts webinars and community workshops for aspiring scholars and writers. I asked Dr. Seldon about her journey to entrepreneurship, her strategies for landing clients, and her biggest mistake as a business owner. Hopefully I have no grammar mistakes in this intro.
