Welcome to 117 Found Days - a new, self-contained WinAnyway blog designed to cover what I plan to do over the next 3 3/4 months.

While this may seem like an arbitrary number, it is, in fact, very specific. This weekend I took second at the Division Level of the Toastmasters International Speech Contest. This rarely happens. Typically, I move on to District, and just as typically, I move on to the Semi-Finals, and even the Finals.

Thanks to my early exit, I essentially have 117 'found days' - like 'found money' - days I need not be distracted by the contest, but can completely focus on my speaking and coaching business.
