Episode #95 Noise and How It’s Getting in the Way of Your Communication Success

Welcome to the show!

I love this episode so much because it’s chock full of all the noise elements that are getting in the way of your communication success.  When we think of noise we think of, well…noise!  But, today I’m talking about the noise that often times is in your head or unspoken and it’s wrecking your ability to speak your truth beautifully.

Noise can be hierachy, semantics, assumptions, expectations and more!

Today I’ll talk about the different types of noise, how they get in your way of being an effective communicator at home and work and how to think and speak differently.

Ready to speak your truth beautifully by reclaiming your real voice?  I can show you how!  Don’t forget to join the 5-day Effective Communication Challenge, last call…sign up here:

Episode #94 How Your Tone of Voice is Hurting or Helping You

Welcome to the show!

WOW!!!  100 Episodes!  I could not have done this without your support. Thank you so much for being a listener, a subscriber, a downloader and a reviewer!

I love this show and I’m so grateful for your support.

Today on episode 100 I’m talking about a topic that is really close to my heart. I’m very sensitive to the tone of voice people speak to me and others with. Tone makes a big impact on most of the people you communicate within your business and personal life.  Tone speaks volumes!

The thing about tone is that it can really help create your success or really hinder it.  The unfortunate part is that tone of voice is hurting too many people in their communication with others ultimately slowing their connections and success.  Just like non-verbals, we use tone because we struggle to say what we need to say, struggle to really express our emotions so we rely on letting those emotions out in our tone rather than just using the proper words.  But the tone of voice you use can literally wreck your business and personal relationships.

I’m still on the effective communication and voice series, your tone of voice is an obvious part of it.

Today I’ll be talking about why and how your tone of voice can create problems for you and what you need to do to change your tone.  I think you’re going to really love this episode and this one you might definitely want to share with others so they can check their tone!

Guest Bio

Filip Valica has been a mechanical engineer and manager for over 12 years, designing, testing and building products. He has worked for a broad range of companies – from mom-and-pop small businesses to some of the largest corporations in the US.  Filip founded The Product Startup to provide a step-by-step blueprint to aspiring product creators wanting to bring their own ideas to market. 

Along with his mother, Filip came to the United States as a political refugee from Czechoslovakia when he was 7 years old. They arrived with two suitcases and $80 in cash and left behind all of their family. His journey and success in the United States prove that it’s possible to create your own luck through hard work.

At an early age, Filip became the “man-of-the-house” and was responsible for fixing things around the house. After college, he pooled his savings, borrowed money from his friends, bought an inhabitable foreclosure and spent the next 2 years to make it livable. 

Filip lives in Houston, Texas with his wife and daughter. After his daughter was born, he realized that he needed to focus on his passion and soon launched The Product Startup.  

Filip believes that anyone can develop a product using recent advances in technology and tools  – and by following the same road map many other companies currently use to commercialize their ideas. On his podcast, Filip interviews other founders and shows listeners a how they can build their products and brands on a tight budget. His hands-on point of view resonates with other action-oriented small business owners and entrepreneurs.  You can find out more about Filip at
