Sometimes resonances also occur in the silence of the ether. Curious how a social network like LinkedIn can prove once again that “there are no accidents” by creating a “magic”.
My followers know that I have many projects in preparation, including a new Youtube channel. “Time” is the only scarce resource for those who work on their own, for every “freelancer”. The goal of every good freelancer must be to be able to forge an intimate, firm and lasting relationship with good customers and not simply gain new clients. He/she must strive to get more serenity and “free time” for him/herself. It seems like a play on words but it’s a reality that most people are understanding.
Sometimes we work so hard to produce such small results, but if you stop and listen, our Inborn Voice often speaks to us. And it speaks to us about decisions, choices, problems that involve us at that very moment. I’ll put you below the interview Mylena Vocal Coach gave to Barbara Reverberi for the PodCast News for Freelancer.
Here’s the transcript of the entire video:
Hello welcome or welcome back to news for freelance.
This is the podcast dedicated to our life, I’m not going to linger long, I know that many of you already listen to me since a long time, others do it while they do pilates, rather than other activities and this is the magic of podcasting!
So thank you for being here and thank you for the comments and feedback you’ll give me. You know they are always welcome for a constant improvement and especially to identify the issues that are most interesting for you and that we can share.
Before introducing today’s guest, a very interesting guest, in line with my research on the voice in particular on the improvement of our vocality, “in a broader sense”. This is a bit the message, it is the legacy of the podcasting festival that was just last Saturday at the talent garden: an extraordinary event.
I would like to give you a report of this too, it left me a lot especially because I met many people, many enthusiasts and emerging podcasters. We were over 150 and I must say that it was nice to listen to meet, talk and share.
I also thank Giulio Gaudiano, who was a bit the forerunner, the one who encouraged me to start with his book, and I also thank Andrea Ciraulo because, really, with his very calm voice is very interesting.
So let’s return to the theme of voice but before doing so I remind you that I’m Barbara Reverberi I’m a journalist I deal with media relations and digital PR
Why all this freelance stuff?
Because this is my passion, but because this is my life. It’s my life! I’ve been freelancing for over seven years. after a first period of solitary freelance I realized that maybe it was better not running alone, so I decided to share this experience with a colleague Moira Perruso and then setting up “MOBA Comunicazione” and then to create Freelance Network Italia.
This is a large group of professionals in communication and digital media. Freelance Network presents itself to us al: we collaborate and present ourselves to the customer in a modular formula so we try to meet their needs in an agile way. here are a little of the news about the free lance network that is growing We formed as an association in June, if you want more information look for the freelance network Italy group, now open to everybody, and if you like what happens within this group what we share that are experience. Sometimes we even share discounts that we can get from other partners, but above all we really share news and everything that is useful to our training for our improvement.
Useful for our improvement!
So I come straight away to tell you about today’s guest Today’s guest impressed me! I read an interview dedicated to her by Roselina Salemi in the magazine ELLE some time ago I did a post on linkedin dedicated to the voice and I must say that this post has really engaged because many are interested in the voice system. I say system because it is really a complex area of interest.
Milena Origgi, also known as Mylena Vocal Coach is really an expert of the voice and run and followed several activities. She run several conferences and workshops but the extraordinary thing is that I liked her story because she started from Busto Arsizio! She initially worked mainly on Milan and then she grew so much to reach Boston where she now lives since 5 years and her project is becoming even bigger than that.
Her project is to bring the method she created called Inborn Voice around the world. the starting point is beautiful in my opinion: the voice identifies us and when we will find our originary voice, our Inborn Voice, we will have really grasped the essence of our existence and we will be able to transmit it to others.
So starting from the voice the improvement will reach and benefit our entire life! I’ll leave you really soon to Milena but I take this opportunity to bring your attention to three focal points that she will touch the first point is the originality, the second is listening to our voice but also the voice of others and sometimes I would say especially the voice of others just to enter into a relationship and create healthy relationships with the customer because this help us to work better and finally love our voice. beautiful: to love our voice! I have a question for you all. How many of you have recorded a vocal note, have listened to it again and have not loved the voice?
This is a good awareness point. This happened to me and for this reason I’m studying and working a lot on my voice from here we start also for a more extensive improvement of our very existence starting from the fact that the voice is what makes us immediately recognizable identifiable
Try to do an experiment if you were in a large room and began to speak without being seen maybe someone who knows you would identify you immediately and this I think is already extraordinary in itself
So love your own voice to improve not only our voice but ourselves! and now leave you to Milena Origgi
Hello to all news for freelance listeners following Barbara and her podcasts I am Milena Origgi, also known as Mylena Vocal Coach or the Voice Guru
My life is a real roller coaster!
I am originally from Busto Arsizio and currently live in the United States precisely in the elegant city of Boston I moved about five years ago to respond to the needs of my American customers and to further spread my method Inborn Voice in this great country
I immediately agreed to be interviewed for the podcast because this is a topic very important to me and I love to share my international experience As all of you, I have started my company from scratch by making it grow first in Milan, then throughout Italy, I opened my second studio in London, then my third in Boston and the upcoming project I’m working on are New York and Los Angeles
For more than 30 years I’ve been dealing with the voice of people, to professional voice training at 360 degrees with the method Inborn Voice and I invite you to dig a little deeper by reading my website www.inbornvoice.com or my latest book “The Way of the Voice”
The results of my work have spread so quickly and well beyond the Italian borders This unexpectedly led me to become a pioneer of online lessons and today my customers range from Hawaii islands to Hong Kong
Maybe you do not know but there are thirteen different time zones between these two extremes of the planet! So it became necessary for me to live and work in a time zone that was more central to these requirements The east coast of the United States is the perfect place!
Luckily for me more and more people understand the importance of the voice in modern interpersonal communication the famous “networking” especially in the working field and in the world of politics.
Every day so, with joy and passion, I spread my experience to managers, entrepreneurs, actors, dubbers, youtubers and clearly many freelancers! But I also love working with ordinary people, especially mothers, couples and teenagers.
Summing up all this presentation, I can say that: “What’s my secret?” Obviously the voice!
We are freelancers, for us the voice matters a great deal as for all other people but perhaps for us who must make us recognizable that we must be appreciated because we must know how to “sell” what we are the voice matters even more I want to ask you how someone can begins to train the voice?
Dear Barbara, how do we start?
With an act of will!
It is essential to recognize when our voice has some difficulty and not only “recognize,” but also to “feel” that there is a difficulty because it is from there that you start from there that you choose to do an act of will and start to discover a new land and start to cultivate your voice
Milena, The second question for you is this one: is there a way in which we can better present ourselves or better present our project to a customer How to to speak the truth during a presentation?
Voice is our most powerful business card, even powerful than a designer dress! I created the Inborn Voice method precisely because it is fundamental to “find your voice”, find your own way in this world. Too often we are confused and we mistake one of our personalities, built during our life experience, for our true identity. The fulcrum of all my work is linked to this concept, that’s why I have written the book “The way of the Voice” and my most exclusive workshop is called “Your Voice, Your Identity”.
The best way is to start looking for our true identity so that it can reflect very well what we are saying to avoid to “sell” to our customers a personality that does not correspond to us and therefore does not reflect our passion undermining the trust and credibility in front of our clients.
Can you also give us three tips to improve your voice?
I will have in many more to give!
Above all not to copy others for example looking at videos, learning generic notions and so on this makes us “standard” our originality is dispersed and we have a lot more to offer!
Second: to take a pause to listen at the harmony between our voice and the one of the client clearly during a negotiation you have no idea how much a good training affect this point.
This point alone streamlines your and my work time
I give you a simple example a freelance client of mine went from staying awake until midnight every single night to prepare the strategy to “propose” to the client to going to bed at ten after watching a movie with his family
Inborn Voice does not add burden does not add new things to know, but removes and lightens giving fast and lasting results
Third and final advice: start listening and loving your own voice so that you can hear and highlight the weak points without hiding them from yourself
Why this? Every weak point is fertile ground for your fears your uncertainties and as Simona Ventura says, these fears reach directly in the belly and can undermine the success of a job to which you have dedicated yourself for a long time.
Do you know that even a few “humming” like our “mhm”, our “but” have much value in the success of a sale?
The stats I have highlighted in thirty years of experience is almost the loss of the sale of 70 percent
Confidence gushes out in a firm and present voice that will always give you the result you expected.
You have written several books the last one, “The way of the voice” and you recognize that identity is fundamental for our voice or vice versa voice is the key to give emphasis to our identity I know that there will be a great event of yours in Milan and I would be glad if you could talk about it a little so I can leave a link in the post that will follow this podcast
Dear Barbara, of course! “Your voice, Your identity”, the identity and the voice are indissolubly linked
There will be this event, in Milan and it will be a workshop!
It ‘s my flagship one, after so many years of hard work, dedication, not always easy, I guarantee you We finally reached the thirteenth edition that will be the one in Milan
The tour began in Los Angeles, touches New York, London, Paris and last stage of 2019 will be my beloved Milan
Then I will devote myself to the following dates in 2020
What is this event all about? It is a real workshop so you will receive some brief notion and soon after we will start to reach, awaken, activate the maximum expression of your identity through the multiple potential of your Inborn Voice. I love it!
You will be the protagonists of the day and I will be your guide who will respect, free and embellish, your incredible communication tool, your voice.
You will stop using that voice that lies event to yourself and does not represent you You will remove vocal blocks, energy and physiological ones, for some is a beautiful experience in which their most hidden essence awakens
Clear examples of the feelings that you will experience can be summed up topical moments of these movies
The first is Harry Potter: imagine yourself in front of the door full of hundreds of locks that with a single key, which I call Inborn Voice, opens magically and reveals the philosopher’s stone: the treasure!
Then we also have Dead Poets Society its intensity I will make you live the same intensity.
The last film love very much and that I’ve seen hundreds of times is Eat, pray and love. when Julia Roberts summarizes the journey to find herself, the real herself, in a significant sentence: If you’re brave enough to set out on a truth-seeking journey, either externally or internally, and if you are truly willing to face and forgive some very difficult realities about yourself, then the truth will not be withheld from you
This is what you will live at the workshop in Milan an experience closely related to your voice, your communication but the beauty of human expression that I defend every day with great passion and confidence
A greeting to all, thanks for listening a greeting to you Barbara and good freelancing!

So it comes to me to say how useful are the social networks when they are used with common sense and criterion even for a personal project on the other hand I thank Milena for this pill of her suggestions that are definitely useful for us to help us freelancer that we want to change the way we see the world of work with greater freedom of choice and therefore what’s better than an Inborn Voice, the one that identifies us and that we have lost over the years because of the imprinting that we received?

I leave the in-depth links below the post I’m happy that Milena was our guest thank you once again and thank you especially for following me so faithfully I’m really pleased I hope to do a good job for all of us
The human being has been granted the incredible super power of free will, that is, he/she can always choose between a number of possibilities to act. As always, great power carries great responsibilities.
One of the daily decisions that people make all the time is whether to speak or remain silent. Clearly, when one decides to speak, then one must also decide what to say, when one decides to be silent, then one must also willingly accept all the implications.
This topic is so important that practically all the greatest thinkers have been attributed some aphorism about it. For example, Oscar Wilde was famous for his “Sometimes it’s better to be silent and look stupid than to open your mouth and remove any doubt“, Blaise Pascal for his “In love a silence is worth more than a speech“, but my favorite is Jean Paul Sartre’s “Every word has consequences. Every silence as well.“
In my thirty years of Vocal Coach experience I have helped people who were basically silent give voice to their emotions and people who were a little too chatty to listen to their emotions. In my book The Way of the Voice I frequently mention Silence: if you stop to listen to it properly, it’s anything but lacking in interest or musicality. So true is when Miles Davis used to say “The real music is silence. All the notes just frame it“.
So how do you understand when it’s best to be silent and when it’s necessary to talk, for unpleasant that these two situations can be?
Those who know me are well aware that there can be no “standard” answers, which are good for everyone, but I can reassure you: there is a simple marker that can help you to understand what choice should be made. Since in verbal communication, as in all other human relationships, there is rarely a second opportunity to speak, explain or express oneself. It is therefore essential to learn this subtle “art” a little at a time, also thanks to my support as a Vocal Coach.
This miraculous marker that can help you in this Hamlet decision is yourself and your Inborn Voice. Saying that seems so simple, but in reality only we can know, instinctively and unconsciously, why we choose whether to speak or not. The motivations provided by our logic may be the most disparate, but I am referring to motivations that respond to a different state of consciousness, namely they come from emotions. Sometimes we speak only to clarify a thought to ourselves, others to fill the silence. Sometimes you are silent because you fear the consequences of the spoken words, others to savor the intensity of a moment.
As I said before, whatever the choice, there will be consequences. And even if our logical side doesn’t care about the consequences, they will happen anyway and will influence the emotional side.
Most of the people I help have an impairment of their capacity to communicate their thoughts to others because they fear a negative emotion related to a specific type of consequence. Yet if we remain silent or fill the silence with circumstantial phrases or speeches for nothing, other consequences will fall into our lives. There is no way of knowing if the consequences of one choice will be worse than the other.
For example, if you choose to speak, perhaps to convince a loved one of your idea, you risk to crack your relationship forever. If you choose to be silent to avoid breaking the relationship, you risk keeping something inside that will gradually consume you from within. No choice is simple, you have to learn to listen to yourself and your inner silence to be able to make the best one. In fact, not all evils come to harm, sometimes the most feared consequences are precisely those that can make a change in your existence.
So, ultimately, the best advice I can give you is to be selfish and to choose thinking with your own mind and listening to your own Inborn Voice.
Before understanding what are the main benefits that can be achieved training your voice with the Inborn Voice method, it is good to clarify what Mylena Vocal Coach is, as she’s not an ordinary Vocal Coach.
Her work is closely related to emotional intelligence, through the deep connection between voice and soul. Helping people to express, to accomplish through the voice, their “inner world”, therefore their emotions, their expectations, their talents, and their skills, in the “reality”.
Mylena is able to successfully solve any vocal or communication problem in a glimpse: that’s why she well-deserved to be renowned as “Voice Guru” all over the world. Her key ability is to inspire anyone to speak up, to give voice to their ideas, bringing to the surface their own hidden charisma.
Clearly, she’s also a traditional Vocal Coach that deals with phonation, diction, enunciation, locution, tonality, communication and all the “old fashioned” way of teaching how to use the voice.
The Inborn Voice method and Mylena Vocal Coach will help you seize the reins of your life to start expressing your “true self” being proud of all your strengths point and not complaining about your weaknesses.
Do you have any issues in your work environment?
Do you feel undervalued, underpaid or being exploited?
Would you like to prove your worth, ask for a raise or perhaps start up your own business?
All you need to turn your dreams into reality is just the determination and the guts to give voice to your ideas. In fact, all you have to do is learn how to project your voice to give an opportunity to the people around you, your colleagues, your boss or your subordinates, to recognize how much you are precious and unique and how much you can contribute.

Do you experience difficulties when relating to other people?
Do you have problems gaining new friends?
Are you incapable to establish a lasting romantic relationship?
Do you find yourself frequently fighting with your partner?
Very often the difference between who is able to establish new relationships and who fails is not to be sought in physical appearance, economic wealth or success, but in the ability to interact with others with your voice, to express the beautiful person that you are keeping hidden within yourself.
If in your childhood you had learned some bad communication behaviors in family, at school or on television, it’s not too late to remove them!
You can learn how to communicate effectively using the Inborn Voice method and the invaluable help of Mylena Vocal Coach. Everyone can start new relationships or maintain the present ones, without struggles, misunderstandings or fights.
Interpersonal communication, as a twosome, whether it’s a friendship or sentimental one, is mainly focused on how you use your voice! When you don’t feel adequate you often tend to be silent or you tend to prevail others, perhaps raising the tone of your voice, wasting precious opportunities.
Attends one of Mylena’s international workshops in Los Angeles, Boston, New York, London, Paris, Milan, and Rome to have a jump start in your voice education. You can book your participation online or using our app!
This one is the most delicate of the three situations because it concerns deep and intimate emotions.
The parent/child relationship is something that evokes strong emotions and as we have seen, they are directly connected with your voice and your soul.
We all are someone’s children and you may still have communication issues with your parents even in elderly age! This is much more frequent than ones may think. When you stop talking, you stop communicating. You can’t express yourself anymore to our loved ones, leaving an empty space that over time will appear to be unbridgeable.
If you now are a parent, even if your desire is to be the best parent ever, you may find yourself facing your child who do not seem to be listening or who take pleasure in ignoring you.
This can be easily avoided. You are simply using your voice the bad way, and you are teaching the same behavior to your child. At this point, you will have understood how important it is for a parent to stop this repeating circle and give their children the opportunity to learn an effective way of communicating, in order to give them an important advantage that will lead them to avoid problems and hardships in the adolescent age and in the subsequent working and sentimental life.
Once you’ve made your way through the Inborn Voice training, as you can witness from the many testimonials, you may completely change your life for better!
Today it has been broadcasted on RAI, in the program L’Italia con Voi, dedicated to Italians abroad, an interview that has been delivered in New York.
Accidents don’t exist and whoever follows me will know that I accompanied Giovanni Scialpi to the RAI show “Ora o Mai più” conducted by Amadeus and with Jessica Morlacchi as guest. Well, the episode of the show opened with Jessica, followed by Amadeus and immediately afterwards my interview. I take this opportunity to send a big hug to Amadeus and to all the cast of the show, but also to all the operators of the Studio!
But let’s see at my interview (with captions):
Here is the transcript:
First, however, I must launch the next report by Andrea Fumagalli.
We go to New York and hear a vocal coach
Milena Origgi is a vocal coach originally from Busto Arsizio (Italy)
After an experience in London, Milena has moved to Boston three years ago
Tonight she is in New York to present her book “The Way of the Voice” in which she illustrates her method of voice training: Inborn Voice®
This method is the only one in the world that does not try to introduce new knowledge into the people, but tries to extract, to remove, to let out, to remove, errors or incorrect learning, to free completely our ability, our vocality and all our expressiveness!
I carry the flag of Italy high for its “craftsmanship” concept
My classes open in at least three ways.
Generally they are lessons that deal with vocality at a practical level for those who choose the “technical” part than the first place, therefore the exercises are not exercises like the usual vocalisations but they are almost mute exercises, done in silence.
And yet the voice gets better!
And that’s the first magic.
Second magic: some people ask me to go even deeper so here we start in the second part of this method and it is the “emotional” part, as well as the technique.
People begin to improve their socializing attitude, couples talk to each other and improve their communication.
Third and last part that the most complex and I must say almost 3-4% of my clients is that advanced: the Vocal Alignment®.
What it means is that not only is there a link with the external and internal voices, but this is reflected in the universe in all that we encounter on a quantum physical level, but above all, of course, it is clear that it is also on a spiritual level.
I’ve always wanted to live in the United States since I started traveling when I was 16 and I didn’t exactly plan to do this but I definitely thought I would be successful and so I never gave up and determination was the main element.
Tonight’s event is organized by Learn Italy, an agency that promotes the spread of Italian culture and language.
We organize events to promote Italian talent to promote Italian excellence that are many and with the event tonight we launched a new series of projects called “Talents on the net” so we will bring to America especially in the city of New York talents that may be a Vocal Coach as today in the case of Milena or may be creators of fashion or experts in food and wine and similar things.
Our agency is also important in terms of the formation of Italian culture in the world. In fact, for several years we have been carrying out post-graduate and post-graduate courses of higher education and in addition we are authorized and recognized by the University for Foreigners of Siena for courses in Italian language and culture in particular aimed at all those who want to achieve internationally recognized certifications such as CILS, which is the certificate of Italian as a foreign language that is valid for universities for access to our country for applications regarding citizenship, study visas and more.
I am very happy about an evening like this because training institutions like Learn Italy USA have managed to build a bridge over the Atlantic by networking the Italian talents who are making their mark abroad because this is our wealth, our culture, our intelligence to discover new paths through which to help us to become better.
a greeting then to Milena Origgi and also Silvana Mangione of the General Council of Italians Abroad, who was also our guest a few weeks ago together with the members of the presidential committee.
From today you will find in all bookshops, even online, my new eBook titled “The Art of Keeping a Healthy Voice”.
It’s a 100-page eBook that includes much of the experience I’ve gained over the years while working and by receiving dozens and dozens of emails every day with desperate or disillusioned requests for help from people who somehow are no longer able to use their voices in everyday life.
My social commitment has been known for a long time. In addition to the various activities that go unnoticed, I always reply in person to all the emails I receive and I always offer everyone a voice assessment session directly with me. This may seem little, but on the practical side it keeps me very busy.
Based on the emails I receive, it seems that the DIY training and especially the tutorial videos on YouTube are at the basis of many jeopardized voices. Since it would be reckless for me to point out everything as “harmful” or “incompetent”, I preferred to give you a way to figure out by yourself when something is definitely to be avoided and not professional.
In the attempt to “save” at least some of these people in the first place, since the topic of “vocal health” is very important to me, I decided to make this ebook also available free of charge via my website.
I ask you to help me spread it as much as possible through your social networks, your blogs or any other website. The only recommendation is to share the link where to download the eBook and not the eBook itself. Sharing the link means sharing this page:
and not its content, because the book is protected by copyright and sharing the PDF would cause you unnecessary problems.
Here is where you can download the free eBook “The Art of Keeping a Healthy Voice” by Mylena Vocal Coach.
The eBook includes my 5 golden rules, 28 practical tips and 25 testimonials so that you can understand the magnitude of the problem.
For those who prefer paper or use a Kindle device, I asked the publisher to release it at a very low price, so you’ll find it really cheap.
