I wanted it bad enough to speak it before it ever existed. I wanted it so bad that failure was not an option. I wanted it bad enough that people conspired on my behalf to see that it was done.

Creating Your Elevator Speech

Sometimes after you’ve gotten clear on what it is you want to do, you forget that one day you may just have to explain it to someone.  Let’s face it, if you want to be an entrepreneur and be profitable you must know how to present your value.  You want to be able to explain who you are, what you do, and why it’s valuable in a way that is clear and confident.
