Embrace my mistakes, using them to progress

As guest speaker, "Pathways Specialist" in the online meeting from New Zealand, with guests from many other places of the world attending, Kevin who was also keeping the time from Australia, let me tell of my pathways joys for long time! And, at the end, here is how Ablaze Online Advanced toastmasters applaud.

With a lot of friends and long time online pals, meaning we already knew each other from many months, some more then three years! I went a bit here and there, not always in a straight line. My point was there, but not so clear a bit lost in different stories I told. Plus, this audience, with three Pathways Guide and Ambassadors, Pathways enthusiasts, did not want to be convinced, most already where. Paul suggested to me later, I could try the 1 point, one story, 1 point, 1 story.
Carole offered me a great feedback on the spot and proposed to meet me through Zoom to discuss what as a Pathways Guide she thinks is most needed. While I was very "inspirational" I did get lots of time off the straight line to tell a story from my life. So the meaning was some times lost in it. Even if the main message was clear: when you are a step ahead others, you are the "Expert": go into Pathways as fast as you can!

Paul, after send me an email with a lot of details in a long letter. Sudha who just gave a day before her Pathways Icebreaker at Zaldy's Emperor she joined. A day later we did my first video, with me coaching her how to close a project and print or save the second.  I got new friends and a new request to hold a Panel with many questions and answers. 

As a Panel manager, I will speak little, the Panelist too, most will be our answers to the Audience questions. That will help to tailor  the content to the present audience needs and interests. 

It is not at all, not to make mistakes but learn from them, then find a way to do different, new, get new ideas, isn't it?

Hello! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any issues with
hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing many months of hard work due to no data backup.
Do you have any solutions to stop hackers?

You made some decent points there. I checked on the internet for additional information about the issue and found
most individuals will go along with your views on this site.
