In the beginning of May I took the plunge and attended a meeting. I was nervous as all get out. I had a feeling I would have to speak to some extent the first night, and I think I did fairly well. All I had to do was tell my name, what brought me to the meeting, and share what my thoughts were after the meeting. Guess what? It wasn't so bad.
If you feel shy in groups, find it hard to communicate, want to take your career to the next level, or just love hearing yourself talk, think about joining a local Toastmasters club. The uplifting and encouraging members help you work through your improvement areas.
Taking the first step and attending a meeting was the hardest for me. Since, I've enjoyed meeting new people and learning how to craft an entertaining speech. I'm sure I'll be sharing more with you as I continue to learn.
