The Dumb Little Man weblog highlights the importance of a good elevator pitch, the under-than-a-minute pitch to convince your co-elevator passenger (presuming he/she has some sway in your success) that you've got a good thing going. Your pitch can apply to just about anything, from your business/startup to your skills as a potential employee. The post then suggests methods for putting together your own elevator pitch to sell yourself (in a non-prostitute way) in 30-60 seconds. The tips boil down to packing as much concise info into as little time as possible while peppering your pitch with a story and a good hook. If you've already got a killer elevator pitch, share your insight and methods in the comments. Photo by baratunde.
