We had the good fortune of connecting with Naomi Bell and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Naomi, can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?
As an educator, I begin to notice the need for learning effective communication skills extended outside of the public school system. People of all ages, kinder through adult, are struggling with the ability to critically think, problem solve, and demonstrate traditional soft skills that equate to job promotion, teamwork, and successful family and social relationships. This has been my motivation behind creating Confident Voices. I want people to realize the importance of their voice and communicating it well.

What should our readers know about your business?
Confident Voices provides a comprehensive educational experience that empowers students to explore their voices, apply higher order thinking skills, engage in meaningful discourse, and develop essential life skills. By bridging the gap between theory and practice, it equips students to tackle real-world challenges while establishing a solid foundation for academic growth and achievement.  This comprehensive approach provides students with the tools and confidence to succeed in multiple aspects of their lives and establishes their core as lifelong learners.

Our experienced and passionate teachers have a wealth of knowledge and expertise in teaching public speaking, argumentation, and debate. They are dedicated to helping each student grow their confidence and abilities, while also fostering a love for learning and intellectual curiosity. With a curriculum that emphasizes communication skills, logic, and persuasive speaking, our courses offer a unique opportunity for young learners to engage with new ideas, challenge themselves, and build lasting friendships.

What sets us apart from similar companies is the fact that we cater to the needs of our students whether it is a learning difference or physical challenge. While we offer competitions, we teach our students that it is important to develop effective communication skills and apply them to every aspect of their lives and not just for a trophy.

We are a new company, and we attribute our successes from treating our customers as the most important aspect of it. We believe in superior customer service and most of our business is due to referrals. Like any business, there are challenges we have faced. Many of these challenges have been associated with contracted services not being completed and resulting in the loss of funds. We learned our lessons early in our business to have better safeguards in place before hiring individuals.

As a business owner I would like the world to know that consistency and how we treat others is the key to a successful life and business.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
My best friend DFW Itinerary would consist of the following places:
1. Visit the Galleria and Lunch at the Grand Lux Cafe
2. Visit the Arboretum and White Rock Lake
3. Downtown Dallas-Breakfast at Texas Spice, Ross Perot Museum, Dallas World Aquarium, Visit the reunion Tower Observation Deck
4. Visit Grapevine Texas: The Gaylord and Lo-Lo’s Chicken and Waffles
5. All Day Spa Day at any Spa Habitat

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
Confident Voices would like to thank and give a shout out to Leah Seyoum-Tesfa, founder and director of Reaching Families Advocacy and Support Group. Leah gave me the opportunity to share my gifts and talents with students in her program which led to creating Confident Voices.
