Well, it’s New Year’s Eve and time for my annual rant. Get a resolution! There we go. Have a great 2015!
Event though I couldn’t make it to KL, I was able to watch the board briefing live on-line. Daniel Rex commented that our organization grew by over 7% this year! – 7.3 percent membership growth – 17.2 percent new club growth – Five new countries added Toastmasters clubs (Guinea, Iraq, Liberia, Uganda, Uruguay) – The […]
Wow, I’ve been letting myself get distracted by too many things, and not continuing one of the most important habits I developed a few years back…writing. Ever let life get in the way of doing good things? Yeah, me too. I started in Ed Tate’s Train the Trainer Teleseminar course last week. You can check […]
With so many friends and such posting book lists on Twitter, Facebook and their blogs, I thought I should do something original and post my favorites of 2013 and “to be read” list for the start of 2014. What was awesome in 2013: – David and Goliath, Malcolm Gladwell. This guy can’t write a bad […]

If you’re anything like me, you were banking on the Mayans calling it correctly, and you haven’t even thought about 2013, much less what you’ll do better in the new year. Luckily, I uncovered an lost Mayan rumor that taught me a valuable lesson about resolutions. […]

I’m not referring to any sort of cookie-cutter formula. I was really thinking about what it took to inspire me, and what do […]
This year, I had the honor of serving as an Official Timer for the Toastmasters International World Championship of Public Speaking. That’s right, front row center, baby! In a change this year, TI is using a laptop to serve as the official timing device, which seemed to be a PowerPoint programmed to display a green […]
