THIS BOOK IS FOR YOU IF:

You're exhausted trying to convey authority, sick of getting constantly talked over at work or navigating crap power dynamics, holding back your best ideas. If you feel like you're in an (oof) toxic relationship with your own voice, and need a big ol’ shake-up.

If you’re feeling this, you are not alone. So many magnificent humans waste so much time second-guessing their ability to open their mouth and express their heart. It’s not their fault.

IT’S NOT YOUR FAULT.

The panic and dread and forgetting to breathe and self-sabotage are not your fault. SEE: oppressive systems and eons of biased messages about who deserves a public voice.

But what if you could change your relationship to your voice? 

WHAT IF YOU COULD CLAIM ITS POWER—YOUR POWER—AND MAKE PUBLIC SPEAKING WORK FOR YOU?

So that whenever you pitch, present, or promote, it’s a chance to find true connection. So you absolutely radiate. So you trust you can use your voice to get what you want. 

And what if you could do so in a relatively short amount of time and with great joy?

‘Cuz honestly, I’m pragmatic as hell, and I want you showing up with your glow on sooner rather than later.

PRAISE FOR PERMISSION TO SPEAK


Eve Rodsky, author of Fair Play and Find Your Unicorn Space, says:
“Samara’s brilliant expertise helps us understand that when we find our permission to speak, we are able to step into our full power as women [and] change the way we are heard in the world.”

Rachel Rodgers, author of We Should All Be Millionaires, says:
"Women, people of color, and other historically excluded folks are taught not to be too big, too loud, too demanding, or too ambitious.
This book gives them permission to speak up--and command the room."

Carolyn Childers & Lindsay Kaplan, founders of CHIEF, say:
Permission to Speak is bursting with charm and originality, clear-eyed critiques, and gentle nudges, like the greatest business bestie in your ear, whispering the courage you need to speak up and take over.”
