New Toastmasters Club Formation & More

Hello friends,

Well, after 6 agonizing weeks of limping around in a walking cast I have finally had the thing taken off yesterday. WHOOPEE! Unfortunately, my ankle is still a bit painful and hideous looking. The orthopedic specialist told me that my x-rays are quite unusual. This is most likely due to a pretty bad break on the same ankle when I was 11 years old. He also said that it looks like a small fragment of bone is missing from the back of my ankle. Please keep me in your thoughts and prayers as I continue to recover from my slip and fall. I also pray that each of you stay safe on the ice.

Guess what? I have finally done it! After a whole year of toying around with the idea and various meetings with potential venues and my partner in success, I have finally founded a new Toastmasters Club. I had been very frustrated with the lack of a club within my immediate area. Those clubs that were near me were either at least a twenty minute drive or located on some hard to access side street. The new Toastmasters Club, in line with my "success" theme for 2008, is called the Success Seekers Club.

The kickoff meeting will be held on Saturday, February 9, 2008 from 10AM to 12PM in the 2nd floor Community Room of the Housing Resource Center located at 4429 N Clifton Avenue, Chicago, IL 60640. This is in the Uptown neighborhood just off of Montrose and Broadway, behind Truman College and Aldi's parking lots. Guest attendance is FREE and open to the general public ages 18 and over. Toastmasters International is a wonderful 501(c)3 organization that develops leadership, presentation, communication and public speaking skills. Members have the opportunity to be trained on how to be more effective communicators through various group and independent activities including presenting structured speeches to the club.

Effective communication and presentation skills are a great asset for anyone who wants to make a powerful impact in both their business and personal lives. Practice makes perfect! Come on out and join us for our kickoff meeting. Attend as a guest as often as you like but guests don't get the opportunity to practice public speaking in front of the group. Find out more about all of the benefits paid membership has to offer by attending a meeting or send your inquiries to Subsequequent meetings will be held every 2nd and 4th Saturday of each month from 10AM to 12PM. Watch for further updates as we receive our club charter and attain a website.

I look forward to meeting you at the Success Seekers Club of Toastmasters International!

To your success and happy living!

Happy New Year!

I have been absent for the entire month of December in preparation to get some things cranking in the New Year. I want to make 2008 my year to be great and encourage you to do the same. It is time to stop putting my dreams, hopes and aspirations on the backburner. It is time to move mountains and grasp hold of want I want to do. The time to work is NOW!

So here's an update:
December brought a lot of changes for me. I will try to inform you of as much as I can here. First, I completed training with New Life Coach Inc. and am now certified as a Christian Life Coach. And guess what? The coaching certification and training did not cost me thousands of dollars. New Life Coach Inc. is a wonderful non-profit organization that offers free coaching to low income individuals. The organization is based in Chicago and run by a wonderful Christian woman named Bridget Burns. Bridget welcomed me as a volunteer coach and walked with me in my journey to complete my certification. I feel highly blessed by her presence in my life. After excelling in my training and making such a positive impression on Bridget, I was appointed as Director of Services for the organization. I am very excited about this new journey.

Secondly, I am currently in negotiations and collaborations with another great company run by Allan Goldin, former president of the Evelyn Wood speedreading company. Allan now has his own company called Kinetic Advanced Learning. I have always been an advocate of life long learning. We are looking to take personal and professional development to a whole new level.

Other wonderful things that happened in December, well I broke my ankle. I know you are probably wondering how that can be wonderful. Laws of attraction. Apparently I needed to sit down so I am looking at this injury as an opportunity for me to catch up on some things that I have been neglecting. I am spending more time with my children and getting some writing done. This brings me to the next great thing... I published another eBook. This one is a 50-page practical guide to time and project management. It is not just for business folks either. It is for anyone who has a goal and needs to accomplish it. This is especially important at this time of year - the beginning - when everyone is attempting to make a fresh start. In fact, I have developed a whole success system for the New Year. It includes the time management eBook as well as a one-year membership to the Success Seekers Mastermind group and special one-on-one coaching sessions for you and a family member or friend. You can find more information at

My New Year's promises to myself:
To be more diligent in taking care of me
To continue my journey for knowledge
To grow in my spiritual walk with God
To find a church home
To give fully in my relationships

Stay powerfully blessed and keep thinking your dreams out loud.
