Time for a new 30 second elevator speech!

It's time to create a new 30 second elevator speech!

I spoke with a small business owner recently about motivation and how to keep going out there to get new clients. He had decided to skip several networking events since there was a cost of $25 or so for each. He had essentially stopped networking all together. The first thing we decided was that he should NOT stop networking.

Despite all the negativity in the media, you should not stop networking. Instead, I propose that you work on a new 30 second elevator speech. It might be time to reinvent yourself and create a new "HOOK", something to make you different and memorable.

My best advice is to stay positive, keep moving, and reinvent yourself. You will be in a much better position if you maintain activity and put on your thinking cap.
