Meeting new people is what I truly enjoy and Crown Ambassador Jose Ardon is no different when Jose Moreno and I met Ardon at the Organo Gold live event at the Park Inn by Radisson this week in Dallas.

Tips for Choosing Funeral Insurance Plans

Funeral insurance is a kind of insurance specifically designed to provide for the costs associated with burial and interment of a deceased loved one. It is also referred to as burial, final expense or pre-need insurance.

For death is inevitable, it is a smart move to pre-plan this event. With a funeral insurance plan, not only does it make sure that one’s funeral is arranged and paid for in advance but also it unburdens and helps ease the stress of the family members or beneficiaries left behind. Basically, it’s a pre-paid arrangement so families or beneficiaries left behind only have to follow the plan as it is laid out.

Another AST club officer and member to perform her 10th speech and get her CC status

It looks like Addison Singles Toastmasters is churning out successful champions in 2017. It was not too long ago that our VP of Education completed her 10th speech, and her success has now paved a way for the next person. As of this month, Queenie Wen (https://goo.gl/39Aqap), graduated with her 10th speech and became the 2nd club member and officer this year to reach Competent Communicator status. #AST9872 #AddisonSinglesToastmasters

Toastmasters members take action to brand themselves

On or about September, 2016, a club officer, Sherry (not her real name), at the time invited me to run for Vice President of Public Relations at Addison Singles Toastmasters because she knew of my expertise and familiarity with internet marketing, something that we needed for our club to attract more members. #AST9872 #AddisonSinglesToastmasters

At first, I hesitated and thought I could not possibly be a club officer if I’m new to the club since I didn’t have the membership longevity as some of the other members. I didn’t think it would be fair to them since I’ve been a member for only 2 short months.

Happy Lunar New Year to all my friends at Addison Singles Toastmasters!!

Today, January 28, 2017 is translated to January 1 of the year 4715 on the lunar calendar.

This year is the year of the rooster. Therefore, let us all plan our post-Toasties celebration for some chicken friend steak or KFC. #AST9872 #AddisonSinglesToastmasters

I felt that “Lunar New Year” is more appropriate for us in lieu of Chinese New Year since not all our Toastmasters members are
(a) of one ethnic background,
(b) of the Buddhist faith including myself
(c) but ARE a part of a spider web that captures a diversity cultures.

Dallas/Fort Worth happens to be a patch quilt of ethnic diversity that encompasses one of the largest Asian populations in the metroplex, the Vietnamese population. At Addison Singles Toastmasters, several of our Vietnamese and other Asian members who celebrate this holiday are proud of their heritage.

AST9872 Theme for the week: Star Signs

Toastmasters’ theme for this week: Star Signs

This week’s theme for our meeting is Star Signs. #AST9872 #AddisonSinglesToastmasters

The order of the astrological signs is Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius and Pisces. The idea of the zodiac originated in Babylonian astrology, and was later influenced by Hellenistic culture.

On another note, one of our Table Topics is secret societies. What is it? A secret society is a club or an organization whose activities, events, and inner functioning are concealed from non-members. Some secret societies have ties with the occult. While others do not. (: (:

I had a Samuel L Jackson moment this week at Toastmasters. #AST9872 #AddisonSinglesToastmasters

Shortly before our meeting, I sat down and was preparing my role for the night when one member of the club addressed me as “George” three times. The first time around, I didn’t hear him. The second time around, I looked around the room for our VP of Membership, George, where he was nowhere to be found.

The third time around, I said unto him, “There is no George here!” Then I further snapped at him with, “Do we all look alike to you? Really? Really??” I avoided him for the rest of the evening.

Good leaders don’t sit back and wait for things to happen. Good leaders make things happen. #AST9872 #AddisonSinglesToastmasters

After being a “toastie” for 5 months, I took it upon myself to visit a neighboring Toastmasters club in Carrollton simply because their club is located in an Asian shopping center that I frequent.

My second visit there in two weeks only reminded me that a leader develops good networking and speaking skills that shouldn’t be done in only one place.

An entire truckload of plastic bags carried over 100 different wrapped Christmas gifts for people attending Addison Singles Toastmasters this week. #AST9872 #AddisonSinglesToastmasters

Founding member, Glenda Smith, gave to her heart’s content this holiday season as she hosted another successful grab bag party for our members and guests.

No other Toastmasters group has ever done anything this cool. It was every person for himself/herself….all in good fun.

We thank Glenda for her generosity and kind heart and look forward to another grab bag party with her in the future.

We had a great officer election last night for the January through June 2017 term. Our new leaders will make huge contributions to the club in the first half of 2017. #AST9872 #AddisonSinglesToastmasters

As one famous alien once said, “Do or do not. There is no try.” (Yoda) Leadership skills can only be acquired if you step up and “do”. Our club officers will take this club to new heights.

Let’s congratulate the following:

Frank Barnes (https://goo.gl/6UfvP8)
Tatiana Casagrande de Mira (https://goo.gl/xqH6xk)
George Chung (https://goo.gl/tmTjfC)
Queenie Wen (https://goo.gl/39Aqap)
