What’s an Elevator Speech? If you’ve watched Shark Tank, then you already know what it is. It’s the first few sentences that come out of the entrepreneur’s mouth. It’s so powerful that in a blink of an eye it can pull the investors and the audience in, or make them tune out.
You only have one chance to make a fabulous first impression.
An Elevator Speech says in no uncertain terms:
“I’m clear and confident about myself and my business…
“I know what problems my clients face and know exactly how to solve them. I’m the captain of this ship. Join me?”
You may not wish to be on Shark Tank, but there are going to be plenty of opportunities to give your Elevator Speech. It may be networking event, a meetup or your next Thanksgiving dinner when your nosy Aunt wants to know what you’re doing with your life.
