While using your voice tends to mean speaking your mind, it also has a lot to do with your tone. Do you speak with irreverence? Is there a lively spirit in your voice? Or do you lead with your sense of humor?
Without a tone of voice, it’s easy to sound similar to your peers and that’s when your audience puts you in a box. So find your signature tone and implement it wherever your words are present.
For example, here, Aurora James, designer and founder of Brother Vellies and the 15% Percent Pledge, waxes poetic about having her portrait captured by an incredible photographer. Her tone is friendly and humble. She keeps her sentences short and stays consistent with her sign off, which is, ‘I love you.’
