The foundation of effective communication is self-love.

Let Laurie-Ann Murabito, former shy-gal-turned-speaking-coach, walk you through her methods on how she overcame the shame in giving the first word, and who now exudes confidence in speaking, both to her partner and to an audience.

Tune in to this episode: Communicating with Confidence in Business and Marriage with Laurie-Ann Murabito.

Key points covered in this episode:

✔️ Make in-person events count. Make small talk to each attendee that comes in at the door. Cite them in your speech. Memorize the start and the end of your presentation to shake off jitters and avoid rushing. Be selective of the feedback you get.

✔️ The more you ask, the easier it gets. Practice requesting your partner for more time or attention. Ask the hard questions. It gets trickier the more you delay it.

✔️ Your home life impacts your work life. And not vice versa. Spending a short moment to connect can fuel you to be at your best career-wise. Work together to make the dance as smooth as possible.

✔️ The relationship is a choice. It’s not a piece of paper or a ring. As you take responsibility for your own emotions, you actively decide daily that you want to be with this person.

✔️ Confidence comes in many shapes and sizes. You don’t have to copy how others do it. Find your own energy.


Laurie-Ann Murabito, a Speaking Coach and Speaking Strategist, works with clients to communicate with confidence and leverage speaking opportunities to be positioned as the expert, attract high-end clients, and monetize their authority.
