I am going to be doing a series of posts on Fridays that are short and simple – hence the KIS. Yes, I know it is normally followed by another S, but I don’t really like what that last S means. So instead of Keep It Simple Stupid, I’ll just Keep It Simple.
Today’s topic: Your Pitch
No matter where you are in your life/career/etc. when someone asks what you do or what you want to do – are you prepared with an answer? If you have one, that’s fantastic. If you don’t, do not wait for someone to ask you for it. Figure out what it is and be prepared to make it. As a matter of fact, pitch me.
Pitch me once, pitch me well and then even if I don’t go for it, if I believe in you and your pitch, I’ll share it when I find a fit for it. Maybe your pitch isn’t even a “sale” per se, maybe it is a wish to increase business or find a new friend in your area, I’d really like to help if I can. It makes me happy to make connections and if you don’t ever make your pitch…it’s a missed opportunity. (Don’t ever be afraid to make your pitch)
Even though this post is not directly related to the following people, they were partially responsible for the inspiration and I have to give them some credit: Carol Roth, Margie Clayman, Amy Canada, Jonathan Fields, Liz Strauss, Terry Starbucker, Heidi Thorne, Lisa Petrilli, Tomas Acker, Dan Perez and Lou Imbriano. Thanks for taking the time to read and have a fantastic weekend.
