How do you project your voice? Even when I'm speaking loudly I feel like the tone of my voice is pretty muted, if that makes sense. How do I "sharpen" my voice?

In the army they teach you “speak from the diaphragm”, meaning it should feel like you are speaking all the way from your belly upwards. Not sure if that is helpful to you, but I can project my voice as loud as necessary no matter how big the room or crowd, and that’s all I do.

I think the part I’ve always struggled with is that if you don’t already know how to use the diaphragm it’s hard to learn what that feels like. I’ve tried stuff like trying to take a full breath all the way down to my abdomen and applying slight pressure with my hand as I resist with what I assume is my diaphragm as I control exhaling, but I still don’t really “get it”.

One of the weirdest posts I have ever seen on the bowl.

One way to train yourself to speak from the diaphragm is to lay on your stomach and lift your upper body up with your core then speak out. Might be a weird thing to try but let’s you know what it feels like to speak from your diaphragm.

And are there ever any consulting roles where you can consistently be less than 80% billable and still get promoted, get rated well, etc eg if your role just naturally involves a lot of admin work like proposal writing?
