Developing an Elevator Pitch – First Impressions Matter

Share

Elevator-PitchIn simple words, an elevator pitch is a brief presentation that’s designed to grab the attention of potential prospects in a compelling and comprehensive manner.

So, if you had one minute with Oprah or someone you admire in your industry, what would you say to capture their attention?

Criteria for a successful elevator pitch:

It must be Quick, Clear, and Concise! Attention grabber is important too.

Be clear; use a proper speed & tone so that you avoid rushing your message.

Show your enthusiasm using appropriate excitement while telling the story. Enthusiasm plays a key role if you want to draw the attention of your target audience.

 

Does your elevator pitch answer the following questions…..

Who are you?

What do you do?

Who is your target audience?

What separates you from other businesses in your industry?

How do you bring value and benefits to your prospects?

 

Get a note card and have a 30-sec and 60-sec elevator pitch ready. Then start to practice and test to see what sticks. This is one area I love helping my clients shine!!!

 

Share your elevator pitch with us!

What I am looking for next is……

 

To your business & life success,

When a Man Loves a Woman – They Say its Wonderful

Share

August 11th, 2011 was the day Ari Gronich proposed to me at his parents home in Sacramento, California.  It was one of the most romantic moments I have ever experienced. His family, opened their hearts and homes instantly. We went to a musical “Annie Get Your Gun” the evening before. I sat in the middle watching and listening to Ari, his mother and father sing every song. A night I will always remember and here is one of the songs  – “They Say It’s Wonderful”

 

 

This past August 11th I forgot this special day but had a huge smile on my face as soon as Ari reminded me!!! Everyday I am reminded what it is like to be really loved and adored. I am feeling very grateful to have this experience and want to share some of the gifts I am experiencing around love and relationships.

 

I used to think it’s not possible or stay away from long distance relationship, but have found if two people really are meant to be together, they will find a way. When Ari decided he wanted to be with me and my family, he packed up his entire home of 5 years in Los Angeles and moved across the country.  He lived in California most of his life. What a risk and willingness to let go and be open to a possibility. I know there are days it’s challenging for him, as he misses his community, friends and family in California. Most of his relationships are over 10 years in memories. So often when I feel stuck in my ways of thinking or doing things….I ask “What am I willing to give up to have more love and joy?” Is it a story or belief? And when I love to this place of appreciation….I become open to letting go! Dare to LOVE :)

 

I wake up in the morning greeted with a huge smile, “good morning and I love you!!” A true partner that wants to bring more joy and love to not only our family but everyone we come into contact with.  Very selfless…sometime I bug him to be more selfish and put himself first!  

 

Today I get this song “When a Man Loves a Woman” in my head when I think of my relationship with Ari and his deep love.  It also reminds me and hopefully others what is possible with love!!

 

Speaking of Love!!! Master Love Coach Scott  is coming to Brevard March 16th at Aquarian Dreams and March 17th at the POD!!

The Art of Craft & Buckminster Fuller

Share

Create a written list of your deepest desires and intentions” – Buckminster Fuller

 

Yesterday was magical to watch the gifts show-up throughout the day. One of the first things we did when we got here was make a list together of what we really want to do before we left the island. Part of making dreams a reality is writing them down. 

 

Our Hawaii Honeymoon Wishlist

Go to a Luau with fire dancer

Visit and play with Brian Ridgeway, Randy Craft, Dr Nadia Linda Hole, Howard and Ena, Gary and Syd

Swim with dophins (now added Sea Turtles)

See flowing lava and volcano

Make love under a waterfall :)

Attend a Ceremony

Yoga and Journal everyday (personal intention)

Read the “Love Dare” together everyday

Entire day of silence, no technology or words period

 

It’s only night 5 tonight and amazing how much we have completed so far….just from writing it down!

 

One thing, when we went and picked up our rental car I visualized how nice a convertible would be to drive in Hawaii. Last night we visited Randy Craft of the Art of Craft, who so kindly let me drive his gorgeous white Mercedes convertible to dinner last night. Dream come true….sun setting with wind blowing through my hair listening to wonderful love songs. I was fortune enough to have the opportunity to work with him and will never think the same about running a business or creating what I want in life.  He spent the last four years of Buckminster Fuller’s life with him. Full of seeds of wisdom and consciousness shifting perspectives. Reminded how money is NOT the solution to focus on. It’s a complete shift in consciousness. Looking forward to sharing more about my transformational night looking at Buckminster Fuller’s Blueprint for Planetary Abundance – Seven Steps to Global Citizenship with friend and mentor, Randy Craft  www.planinparadise.com. Love sharing time with him and Ari.

 

Spent the morning together doing yoga and preparing for our journey to the Bay to see if we can play with the dolphins again!! Tonight we celebrated our 6 month wedding anniversary at a Hawaiian Luau….what a wonderful time celebrating love and all possibilities.

 

Thanks for reading and sharing!! Remember our thoughts are so powerful and we can attract and create things in an instant….so stay focused on what you want and watch your dreams come true!!

Mahalo!!

Creating an “Ideal Partner List”

Share

I broke up from an amazing relationship last July. In this relationship, I got to experience a partnership of deep admiration and support. He helped me see beauty inside of myself that I didn’t always see or acknowledge as gifts! He loved my children as if they were his own and I could go on and on with all the amazing gifts that came from our time together.

So why did you break- up then? Well there is a time and a season for everything and I was certain that time had come.

After this break-up I looked at what the amazing gifts I recieved from this experience and what would I like to create more of or differently next time! This time, with the inspiration of http://www.KandeeG.com and her love story she shared, it motived me to create an “Ideal Partner List”!

Have you ever created an ideal partner list? The first time I did this process was about 9 years ago and I said I would NEVER do that again because I got everything I asked for, but forgot to look at a few key areas. LOL However….now I know that to create what I want, I want to have clarity! Clarity leads to power.

Then ask for THIS OR SOMETHING BETTER!

When I first started this process I was careful to put the language in the form of what I want to create, instead of what I don’t want. Sometime I had to start with what I didn’t want to turn it around to what I did want.

Then when I looked at the list, I started to feel very depressed and lonely. Thinking how can I attract this amazing person into my life? Am I being shallow? Is it truely possible to have everything I want in a partner?

After a short time I started dating and adding more items to my list. It was getting longer and longer and longer (still is today)! Wow!!! Wondering is this partner really possible…and yet I have faith they are. I am still holding the vision…..and certain this process is bringing him to me now.

I will share a portion of my list below….Would love to hear if you think, share insights and comments
