How Big is Your Sandbox?

Feet in the sandv2

How big do goldfish grow? It seems an innocent enough question. The answer is "it depends". It depends on the size of the aquarium that they spend their days swimming around in. House-bound goldfish can perhaps make it to 2 to 3 inches. Goldfish that have been released to the wild and haven't ended up on the menu of somebody higher up the food chain have been reported to grow to a whopping 12 to 14 inches.

Unless you find the collecting of trivia to be fascinating I would expect the next question forming in your mind to be "Who cares? Why is this important to me?" Okay, that was really two questions disguised as one...

The point: How many of us have had limitations placed upon our personal growth and development and our potential, by others or even worse ... by ourselves?

My story starting a Toastmasters club

on . Posted in Latest D21 News

By Beverly Reese


Sitting at my table one day in Salmon Arm, BC, I had a light bulb moment: I realized that my daughter was not coming home. The next day I put my house up for sale and moved to White Rock.

I soon realized that my daughter was very busy with her job and found myself not knowing anyone else and lonely. I remembered how through the years I had always wanted to join Toastmasters, so I went to my first meeting. They were friendly and gave me pamphlets, but I felt intimidated. On their pamphlet was Toastmasters International's phone number. I phoned and told them I was looking for a Toastmasters club in the daytime and asked if they could help me. They said, "We don't have any daytime clubs in your area, but you can start one!" After hanging up, I said, "START ONE!"

D21 Educational Campaign Announced

on . Posted in Latest D21 News

Dear District 21 Members,

 

Fai MurrayIn our Toastmasters Organization, great emphasis has always been put into our Education Program as it constitutes a major part of Communication & Leadership.

 

It is also our motto to encourage and help our members and friends to carry on and achieve in our Education Program. The sense of achievement and self-gratification that one has reached a certain level definitely is an achievement in itself. To take that first step is not easy; once taken and with encouragement from friends/members, continuous learning is easy in this self-paced program.

Guestbook generic bookv2According to an experienced sales person, a person usually makes a purchase after SEVEN points of interaction. These points of interaction can be as simple as a reminder from a friend, a gentle email greeting or even a follow up phone call. In the business world, sales reps would often follow through with a lead around a couple times by phone or by email until they make a sale.
