Timbre… the resonant properties of the voice; the quality that distinguishes one from another. Pete Seeger said it this way: ‘Shh. Listen to the sounds that surround you. Notice the pitches, the volume, the timbre, the many lines of counterpoint. As light taught Monet to paint, the earth may be teaching you music.’ St. Jerome put it another way: ‘The truly miserable have a timbre in their voices strong enough to erase smiles from the faces and souls of the contented.’ The timbre in one’s voice allows you to connect to people in an emotional way. Some good. Some not so much.
In the world of business, we try to connect with various individuals in order to be able to converse and exchange ideas. But, how do you sound, through their ears, about what you are saying? You are judged by the timbre of your voice upon their ears. Constance Hale, the American writer, noted, ‘To cultivate voice, you must listen to the music of language, the syntactic tics, the cadences.
It makes a difference.
How do you sound to others?
If you are looking for a group of professional business people, who listen…and who are selective enough to make sure that each category of business within their business network is exclusive, LeTip has that advantage. If you are a house painter, you would be the only house painter in that chapter. If you are a Dentist, you would be the only Dentist in the chapter. That is an exclusive LeTip Advantage™. Your fellow LeTip members are there to assist you in creating new friendships, acquaintances and new business.
If you are a business person with integrity, who desires exclusivity in business networking, we have the contacts you need to achieve your goals. This is the meaning of ‘new business assistance’ in its purest form. Contact: www.facebook.com/letipintl/ or call 1 (800) 495-3847 today.
