District 7 Toastmasters

Jennifer was wonderful and friendly when interviewing District Seven Toastmasters for The Thoughtful Entrepreneur. This was the first time I had been on a podcast, and she made me feel very at ease.It was a great way to be able to talk about what Toastmasters is and our Spring Conference. It was a wonderful experience, especially right after going through the Podcast Guest Mini-Mastery Course.
