Ever see the movie "Working Girl"?  Everyone's selling something.  Goods, services, wit, charm, date-worthiness, whatever. And, with a typical attention span of about 30 seconds, how do you plan to best use the precious time of your potential buyer?

 

Do you have an Elevator Pitch? Have you considered the importance? If you had one, would you share it?

 

Eva

 

PS, I especially invite comments because I'm working on one for a new product, due Monday!

Friends something and countrymen can't remember the phrase...

 


I'm removing this blog, in favor of other stuff.  Its purpose was good and well served.  My presentation, with lots of help from you (pl), was provacative, darling, charming, everything I hoped it would be. 4 signed non-competes and an almost certain marriage proposal, lol.   Seriously, this blog was meant to bring lightness and invite input about a serious thing in my real life.  It did that with precious success...my serious thing got done smashingly.  So, I'm gonna say thanks to all y'all, and close this thread to comment.

THANKS, ALL Y'ALL!!!!!  MUAH!!!

Finally, for tonight...and with some help from my very sweet new friends:

 

We are about to set a new standard for the fuel burning automobile engine.  Regardless of the price of oil, an efficient gasoline engine is the only solution to the transportation needs of our future economy, and a more green environment.  ****** Engineering has invested years and millions on the engine we've designed and internationally patented.  It is the solution and it is the most forward thinking design since the hybrid.  Ours is designed and concept-tested under the most stringent standards, it is extremely efficient AND affordable. 

 

I want each of you to get out your checkbook.  Now make out a check for $2,500,000.  Don't sign it yet, but write it.  What? You don't have a checkbook? Here's my personal check, you can write it here.  Why should you write that check? For every reason I just stated.  Our engineers will show you that every word I said is absolutely bankable.

 

And speaking of Engineers...this guy goes to the brain store.  "How much does it cost for engineer brain?" "Three dollars an ounce." "How much does it cost for programmer brain?" "Four dollars an ounce." "How much for lawyer brain?""$1,000 an ounce." "Why is lawyer brain so much more?" "Do you know how many lawyers we had to kill to get one ounce of brain?" Sign our non-disclosure so we can spare some engineers J

I can, for you AZ, I will spring for a couple pouty lips, because you have been so helpful with my golf game.  And, as we know, I will soon be buying MM, so drinks on me, over at Tink and George's.

Little side input, 5 hours to elevator...here's the plan:

I want each of you to get out your checkbook.  (4 reps).  Now make out a check in the amount of 2,500,000.  Don’t sign it yet.  But write it.  You don’t have your checkbook? Here’s my personal check, you can write it here.  Why should you write that check?  Let me explain.

We, here at *************** Engineering, have set the new standard for the fuel burning automobile engine.  With gas costing much less than it did a year ago and hybrid sales sluggish, an efficient gasoline engine is the only solution to the transportation needs of our future economy.  The engine we've designed, and spent years and millions to internationally patent, is that solution.  Induction, compression, ignition, emission…all typical.  Add to that, rotational forces and some quantum mechanics and you have the *********…efficient AND affordable, environmentally responsible and, intellectually, the most forward thinking engine since the Benz.  Improving an outdated concept will never be as effective as re-thinking it.  

So…this guy goes to the brain store.  "How much does it cost for engineer brain?" "Three dollars an ounce." "How much does it cost for programmer brain?" "Four dollars an ounce." "How much for lawyer brain?""$1,000 an ounce." "Why is lawyer brain so much more?" "Do you know how many lawyers we had to kill to get one ounce of brain?" Sign our non-disclosure so we can spare some engineers J
