The Elevator Pitch

Have you ever tried to explain your business to someone and the words just wouldn’t come out properly? I tell many of the youth groups I talk to when asked about networking to stop trying so hard. Relax and just tell people what you do. Many times not telling them as much as they need to know will cause them to be more curious and ask more questions. I find elevator pitches don’t work very well anyway. People in elevators usually look at the walls, could you imagine if someone got in and just started going on about their business for the whole ride? The wrong message may come out like this poor guy in the cartoon.

Have a great day,
