Nine steps to finding your voice (article)

Disclaimer: There could be a lot more than nine step. Or there could be no steps.
The real ideal here is about finding your voice, and just in case, to not disappoint, there is nothing here that relates to expert advice from a voice coach.

This article is the reflection of nine people, from all walks of life who were asked to complete a survey titled "If there were nine steps to finding your voice, what would you include as one of the steps?"

Happy reading. Happy impacting. And thank you to all of those who contributed to this article. Your willingness to open up and share your inner wisdom is quite inspiring. Thank you for your existence.
