Ahhhh….the “elevator pitch.” One more tool in the marketer tool-box. It says here that in order to be super-effective marketers, entrepreneurs, and hustlers-extraordinaire, it’s up to us to distill an explanation of the essence of our skills, services, goals, background, and even our very own selves into a sparkly speech that lasts anywhere from thirty seconds to two minutes. Then we ask for something.
I’ve been getting all tangled up in “selfs” lately. There’s self-awareness, self-esteem, self-worth, self-confidence, self-knowledge, self-image, self-respect, self-efficacy, and all the varied assortments of theory and blather about self-concepts. They do go on and on.
