ToastMastery – Mastery in Servitude and Social Obligation


I am feeling Lucky!  It is a matter of coincidence that my Pathways completion received accolades from both – Outgoing and Incoming President.  The delay in change of name on he auto-triggered email got me the outgoing President’s message.  When I posted it on Facebook – I was lucky that the Current International President immediately responded with his kind message.  Thank you.

It feels great to receive the Mail from the International President of “Toastmasters International” . which comes to every Pathways Learner after completion of a Path. I am privileged to receive this a Second time as I complete the 2nd Path – Presentation Mastery. I wish to thank my Mentors – Mathew Bobby Verghese Askander Dtm Sheryl Poirier and Michelle Alba-Lim Kathiravan M Pethi for their kind support and guidance at every step which made this journey most enjoyable. I wish to thank my Most frequent Evaluators DTM Anees Aziz DTM Ramlal Siman CDTM Daniel Pacheco and TM Prakash Tamhankar. My special thanks to the VPE and other wonderful TMs Aaron Leung Dr. Sunny Fridge Tricia Renzi Grow Zulfikhar Akram Premjith Bala.
I did hope to receive the Second email from the new President’s Desk i.e. Mr. Deepak Menon but apparently, the webmaster is yet to update it and I have received this from Lark Doley which is also precious. My grateful thanks to all the Roletakers and fellow toastmasters for being wonderful active listeners. Feedforward and suggestion give by them were most valuable in this journey as I embark on my 3rd Path Engaging Humor. Biggest Thank you is for my beloved wife Madhura Parkhe who with my daughters Radhika Parkhe and Priyanka Parkhe were my internal source of motivation and boosted my confidence at every stage. Thank you all.Lark Doley message on completion of 2nd Path

 

I . intend to use this knowledge gained to share this with the students of ATL Tinkering Lab students I am mentoring.  The 4th session is Leadership and the 5th one is about communication and Speaking skills.

Fallory – a Wonderful blog for Startpreneurs. Learn from Failures.


👋 Hi Failories! It’s Thursday & there’s new content.

 

The first piece is an interview with Peter Hrbacik, founder of Mangools, a well-known SEO SaaS that was built a few years ago and has been grown to $250,000/month and 8 employees. It’s kind of a special interview, as Peter has failed and committed many mistakes in the past which have taken him to where he is right now.

 

The two other pieces are 400-word articles which explain the reasons why Koinex, an Indian cryptocurrency platform, and Call9, an on-demand doctor service app, were shut down early this year.

 

💰 This newsletter is brought to you by GenM.

Mangools

Quick Read: Why Did Koinex Fail?

Koinex let users trade well-known cryptocurrencies on a peer to peer basis. It was doing it really well and they were able to raise some money on 2 rounds, from 3 investors. However, the Indian laws got harsh against cryptocurrencies and the big amount of obstacles and little profits led to its shut down.

Quick Read: Why Did Call9 Fail?

Call9 was a health startup targeted to patients who needed the urge to speak with a doctor right away about their issues. However, the selection of a bad business model where doctors were paid what the patient wanted, and founder’s inability to achieve growth, led to it’s shut down in early-2019.

Call9
 

I’ve been working a lot on the project these last few weeks. Some things that have happened:

  • I have lots of new interviews with both failed and successful entrepreneurs.
  • There’s a new website design in progress and a migration from Webflow to WordPress being developed.
  • The equipment for the podcast is being bought and interviews will start to be recorded soon.
  • Organic traffic keeps increasing and it has reached the +1,000 clicks per day.
  • One of Failory’s revenue sources will start to mean more monthly money from now on.

Did you know…


… that today is Computer End of File Day? In 1999, September 9 read as 9/9/99 (or 9999) to many computer programs. Since “99” is an error code for many computer software systems and “9999” an end of file code, it was feared this date could trigger an end of input or end of file reading thus causing computers to close down programs. The date came and went without much fuss… in case you were wondering. 😉
