Life as an entrepreneur is already hard. Add to it, doing business in a language you don't feel confident in. That can get in your way of running the business of your dreams! I can help you with that.
Well more precisely, when I moved from Poland to New York I suddenly lost my ability to speak.
When I tried to open my mouth… most people just ignored me because of my strong accent and poor grammar.
Gone were the days of me being cheerful, hanging out with my friends and talking about cute boys in my small town, Lapy.
I felt lost in the concrete jungle (the only thing keeping me going was my over used copy of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban which I was reading for the 19th time) missing my friends, family and most of all my dog Fafik, who we left back home with my grandparents.
Strangers used to say “can you repeat that?” because I was essentially whispering my name (Lena is short for Paulina by the way!).
Despite learning to speak English fluently in 6 months and losing my accent in about a year, I was petrified of public speaking. I felt as though something was stuck in my throat whenever I attempted to speak up.
But wanna know how I got my voice back?
By starting my own podcast and sharing the stories of others (yes, you read that right).
Lena Livinsky is a conscious accent coach and speech-language pathologist who has been committed to helping multilingual entrepreneurs speak, coach and sell in English with confidence, by invoking the power of their own voice for over 7 years.
She helps purpose-driven coaches and course creators gain back their confidence and speak their message clearly in a way that authentically connects with the people they most want to serve.
She collaborates with clients who want to build something extraordinary — something that has the power to transform the lives of every person they work with. Because when they’re confident about communicating and owning their true voice, the world will see that too.
LET'S WORK TOGETHER
Before I started my podcast the Accented World, I did some internal digging and worked unusual jobs to get there (waitressing at TGI Fridays, teaching English in Spain, becoming a resident assistant, running an accent modification clinic, etc.).
Each job challenged me differently and forced me to come out of my comfort zone.
After some time, It became very clear to me that everything in my life had *always* been leading and training me towards helping multilingual speakers express themselves and share their unique message with the world.
I know better than anyone that crystallizing your voice so the world can really hear what you have to say and doing that in a foreign language is no walk in the park.
But we’re doing ourselves a disservice if we aren’t sharing our gifts with people who need it and aren’t fully showing up as our authentic selves in our life and business.
—Your clients have a difficult time understanding you or connecting on a deeper level
—You want to be free to fully express yourself in English
—You are being judged when speaking in English (for example, you might be interrupted or dismissed no matter how deep or valuable your message is)
—You’re often misunderstood and asked to repeat yourself
—You don’t think you can be successful because of all the words that you mispronounce or don’t know how to say properly
—You're nervous when speaking in public or on video but you know you need to do it to thrive in your business
Lena was highly committed to engaging us. I found her openness to "learning alongside the students" to be refreshing and encouraging.
My sun and moon are both in Scorpio, and my ascendant sign is in Leo (in case you love astrology as much as I do!). I’ve visited 33 countries and courting, even flying over 24 hours to New Zealand. But I’m still the person holding on to the plane for dear life even for minor turbulence.
