Defining Your Greatness, a Toastmasters Prospective is a compilation of my first 12 Toastmasters International speeches. Public Speaker, Book Yourself Solid Coach, Education and Training Manager and President of McGuire Achievers Toastmasters Club this book details my journey from conception in Birmingham, England to Kingston, Jamaica where my parents returned with kids in tow to the land that they love then to New York City where my siblings and I sought out the American dream. And currently in New Jersey as a Veteran and Reservist in the US Air Force serving for the past 24 years.
The book details my achievements and achievements of others that rise above the fray due to hard work and commitment to realize their dreams. No matter where you are in life there is evidence that opportunities are presented on a daily basis to allow us to achieve more. We are often inspired through others to move past our own difficulties and triumph within in our own lives.
I am committed to helping others cultivate their dreams and aspire to achieve goals. This book is a tool of practical and simple ways for people to achieve them.

I really enjoyed reading this book. Defining Your Greatness: A Toastmaster’s Prospective is a very well written Life-Improvement book. This book is intelligent, wise and packed to the rafters with practical common-sense advice. It becomes obvious as you read through this page turner that the author is imparting her wisdom and understanding as to what happiness and success really means. It’s an excellent guide for putting things into perspective and may well be a potential life changer for all those who read it. No matter what your situation is to-day, this book will put you on the right path to better things. I’ve been around the block a few times myself and even I found this read to be very perceptive and informative.
Profound thoughts are explained here in the simplest manner. That’s all one can say about this book. It’s difficult to write a more objective review, because the impact the author will have on you will make you see life and its problems in a wise and practical way. The book should NOT be read – it should be absorbed and reflect-ed upon.
This wonderful book will show you how to properly tune into life and the simple rules you must follow to achieve this. This by far is one of the best Life-Improvement books I’ve read in a very long time. The author must be commended for her time and effort for producing such an insightful book. Also, the writing style is friendly which makes for an enjoyable read.
I would highly recommend this book. Five stars from me.
