What Singers need to know as Vocal Athletes with Marci Daniels Rosenberg
Vocal injury is not uncommon in the world of singing. This injury is a type of damage that can occur to the vocal cords, which produce sound by either vibrating together or rubbing against each other to create friction that produces the sound. The most common causes are viral infections and vocal abuse (such as shouting).Singers have a higher risk of sustaining a vocal injury because singing is a physical activity that involves the muscles of the vocal cords, mouth, and throat. When they push their voices too far, injury becomes inevitable.There are a number of warning signs that can indicate voice injury. Some people have a hoarse or rough voice or one that is runny, with no obvious cause. Others may notice they are losing their voice quickly and easily. Persistent throat clearing and having to clear your throat often may also be indicators of vocal pathology.

Customers are the lifeblood of your business, and without them, it would cease to exist.

Know your Product: Leveraging Insight for Success
How well do you know the product that you are selling? How much is too much, and how little is too little? Though in the first segment of this series we focused on selling from a benefit point of view and not a descriptive point of view, knowing your product’s overall description (but not necessarily every fine detail) is imperative. Even though the customer will rarely want to know the product description, you should have enough information to offer a recommendation and become a master of what you are selling. The more knowledge you have of a product, the more confident you will be when selling it and the more help you can give. Customers will be much more willing to purchase a product when they feel a sense of trust in the information you give them. Honesty also brings more sales, and honesty comes from having enough information. In this episode, I share tips on how to know your product well.
