Hi Fred,

Thanks for your comment and particularly for the link to your post.

I particularly liked the segment..."Businesses hire me because..." That is very powerful. I don't currently use that wording but I will now!

Also loved the graphic -- it's briliant!

Hi Lionel,

Thanks for stopping by.

Yes, the term elevator pitch is very commonly used, particularly in a sales context.

The term elevator speech is interchangeable and used more often outside of the sales context, e.g., a job applicant introducing herself or a small business owner answering the question, "What do you do?"
