Finding your elevator pitch.

Elevator

What’s your elevator pitch? It’s often hard to reduce your passions and business purpose into a measly 15-seconds. But when it’s solidified, confidence ensues. Sure, it won’t be perfect out of the gate, but having one gets the ball rolling. The more you “pitch” it, the easier it is to say and the more adaptable it becomes based on your audience. And then, you’ll never be at a loss when confronted with someone who can help you achieve your goals or sell your solution. Capitalize on this opportunity, rather than letting it walk out the door.

I stumbled upon this great elevator pitch creator called “15-Second Pitch.” In about 5-minutes, the site walks you through the creation of your pitch and out pops your 15-second schpeel. The only challenge is being comfortable enough to truly highlight your skills and talents.

Just remember to be direct and honest…you only have 15-seconds to make a great first impression!
