This episode is not about sports but more about job interviews. If you are a PWS (person who stutters) or even a non-stutterer, we've all had those job interviews that were less than favorable.

Check out this episode on the little secret that they don't tell you about regarding job interviews. Send in a...

Stuttering & Tools

1/13/2019

As a person who stutters, the two tools that have been instrumental in my speech journey have been hypnosis and diaphragmatic breathing. You know that when you have a block, your entire body is tensed and it may be that way for a quite a while. Hypnosis taught me how to breathe into relaxation so that I can use this technique in my daily regimen. Also, diaphragmatic breathing has taught to me while in my 20s and it has proven effective in beginning my sentences on the exhale with 100%...

1/7/2019

When comparing yourself to others, the outcome is most always unfavorable. When I was younger I compared myself to others because I did not like who I was because of my stutter. Now that I'm a little older, somewhat wiser, I am happy with who I am. It took me a long time to embrace my stutter but once I did, my whole life became a little brighter.
