Monday Motivation: Installment 39

If you are new to the blog (welcome!), I joined a Toastmasters group a few months ago.  I knew I needed to up my public speaking game to get where I want to be in life, so becoming a member was a natural step.   I know it is doing great things for me because I’m uncomfortable going every week.   Let me explain;   I could easily just go home, eat and do my thing.
