Um, Do You Use Filler Words?



Many people have the bad habit of saying, “Um” when they are speaking. Filler words like “um,” “uh,” “well,” “so,” and “like” are very popular in everyday speech but when you are giving a professional presentation or public speaking it is considered unprofessional. Filler words take away from your speech and it is distracting for your audience because it makes it difficult to get your message across. The beginning of a sentence or in between ideas is usually when filler words are used. Filler words are considered verbal pauses because they occur when you are thinking.

If you are in the public speaking business I encourage you to start working on not using filler words, you will thank me later. The next time you are asked a question, don’t answer immediately, stop and actually think about what you are going to say. The same applies to using filler words in between ideas, just stop and think about what you are going to say.

At first this may be challenging but with some practice and a conscious effort to stop using filler words you will be on your way to better and clearer speeches. Visit AmazingPublicSpeaking.com to get more tips on improving your public speeches.

Protection Dogs Elite

I have created a new business venture based upon not only my love for dogs, but based around my new best friend, Rubix.

Rubix is a protection dog specially trained for executives, ex-military, politicians or any other high-profile person needing specific canine protection services.

Housed on 54 acres in Southeastern Virginia, Protection Dogs Elite is one of the largest private dog training facilities in the world. Maintaining a staff of 53 people we are not working out of our garage like many of the firms you may see on the Internet. We have one of the largest kennels in the world housing in excess of 220 dogs at any one time.

Even though we are a large and substantial company, we don’t turn out production line dogs. Our founder and chief trainer (see below) would kick some serious butt if we sold a dog that could not do exactly what we promised and more. Our washout rate (dogs that are sent back for poor performance) is near zero and we want to keep it that way.

In addition to our numerous training fields (necessary so the dogs aren’t only obedient in one location), we have:

■ A Multi-Room Home Invasion Scenario Building
■ Carjacking Training Vehicles
■ A World-Class Military / Special Forces Grade Obstacle Course w/ Tunnel
■ Stair Training
■ Slippery Floor Training
■ Gunfire Training
■ Explosives Detection Training
■ A Video Production Set
■ Classrooms
■ Helicopter and Airplane Landing Facilities nearby with complimentary car service
