We had an Open House at Daylighters Toastmasters this morning. (Daylighters meets weekly, Wednesdays, 6:40 a.m. – 7:55 a.m., Cedar Hills Recreation Center; visitors welcome.)
Our guest speaker, Susan Bender Phelps (OdysseyMentoring.com) gave an excellent presentation on networking, including a small exercise. Most of our members were there, and 10 guests! It seemed like everyone learned something valuable, as well as enjoying some networking, camaraderie and breakfast. I want to share an outstanding quote that Susan shared with us, from Anais Nin:
“Each friend represents a world in us, a world possibly not born until they arrive, and it is only by this meeting that a new world is born.”
I encourage all of you reading this (that live in the Portland, OR area) to brighten up your week on “hump” day. Come out and make some new friends on Wednesday morning.
