Yesterday I attended an event for Toastmasters.  Toastmasters is a learn by doing workshop that assists individuals in becoming more confident leaders and speakers.  It is a safe environment that allows you to proceed at your own pace.  This event yesterday was a club celebration and had a standing-room only crowd.  I happened to be standing by the young gentleman in the video above.  His indication is that he plans to become a motivational speaker one day.  He has a number of speeches that he has posted on but today I’m posting this piece that he posted earlier today called “What’s Holding You Down?”  Let me know what you think about this up and coming motivational speaker.

In the event that you are interested in Toastmasters, go to and there you can enter your zip-code and find a club near you.  It is a great organization to be affiliated with.
