I used to be a Toastmaster.
It was the greatest. Top ten best things I ever did for my speaking career. And although I only had the chance to attended meetings for about six months, I still recommend the organization to everyone.
Even non-speakers. Especially non-speakers.
Why? It’s the perfect tool for networking, enhancing self-confidence and becoming a better communicator. Plus, it’s really fun.
During one meeting in late 2004, I spoke with a man named Les. He was a veteran of the organization, but told me that he still came every single week.
When I asked why he said: “Because the best swimmers are always in the pool.”
I never forgot that. The best swimmers are always in the pool.
That’s you: the swimmer.
LET ME ASK YA THIS…
What’s your pool and how often are you swimming?
