Our special guest is Felicia Slattery. She just authored a fabulous book called Kill the Elevator Pitch: Stop Selling, Start Connecting. I can’t wait for us to explore what that means on this episode...
It’s almost like the definition of insanity. We’re all taught that we need an “elevator speech” just as much as we need a business card, a website, and air to breathe in order to be successful. But the crazy part is NO ONE likes to give those canned elevator speeches and NO ONE likes to hear them because they’re usually full of blah, blah, blah meaningless marketing drivel and feel very contrived and yucky.
More importantly, evidence proves even the most well-crafted and best-delivered elevator speeches don’t work to bring in new business. And they completely fall flat on establishing a new business relationship.
Come and find out what to do instead. It has something to do with… not selling, but connecting.
During this interview Felicia is sharing:
• The 3 main reasons why the “elevator speech” doesn’t work anymore for business (if it ever did!).
• If not an “elevator speech” what exactly you can say when someone asks you what you do so you can naturally participate in a conversation and honor the other person as an actual human being (gasp! Yes you can!).
• The only 5 words you need to remember to never have to hear another elevator speech ever again, short-cut the relationship-building, and get to the know-like-and-trust part right away – without sounding canned or unnatural.
If you have any questions you'd like to ask, send them into email@example.com ahead of the show.

Friends It’s almost like the definition of insanity. Business people everywhere are taught that we need an “elevator speech” just as much as we need a business card, a website, and air to breathe in order to be successful. But the crazy part is NO ONE likes to give those canned elevator speeches and NO ONE likes to hear them because they’re usually full of blah, blah, blah meaningless marketing drivel and feel so contrived and just yucky. I need a shower just thinking about it! More importantly, evidence proves even the most well-crafted and best-delivered elevator speeches don’t work to bring in new business. So if no one likes them and they don’t work, let’s stop doing the same thing over and over again expecting different results!
Now I know, if you’ve been forced to drink the “elevator speech” punch or have even given it to others thinking you were helping them, you might be in full disagreement with me. But after youl hear from Felicia on how to Kill the Elevator Speech: Stop Selling, Start Connecting, I think you’ll agree that in today’s business climate, there IS a better way.

Your elevator speech is as essential as your business card, if not more to your EFT practice. You should be able to say who you are, what you do, and how you can be a resource to your listener in a concise way. If you don't, people will move their attention onto themselves or another topic. These introductory verbal handshakes were once considered to last 30 seconds, as long as an elevator ride might take for you to intrigue a fellow passenger to ask for your business card. Statistics of abbreviated digital attention spans, which is are now tagged at 8 seconds, we are recommending that you acquire the skill to be persuade someone to want to know more within 22 seconds. Listen in and join EFT MBA radio hosts Alina Frank and Dr. Craig Weiner to find out our best tips of how to do this with authenticity and skill.

They say people are more afraid of public speaking than death. There’s not much Catrice McWhorter is afraid of these days. Catrice has made it her mission to prove to herself that fear is a liar by continuing to overcome any challenges presented to her. She is one to never accept where she currently may be, as the furthest place she could ever go. Whether it was leaving the comfort and stability of Atlantic City, New Jersey, her native home; leaving family, friends, and the life she’s known to move to Atlanta, GA. Or whether, it is traveling and studying abroad on foreign lands for months at a time. Or lastly, satisfying her inner daredevil, with such activities as bungee-jumping, shark cage diving, and parasailing; this smart, educated mother continues to inspire all to be fearless. Guest Catrice McWhorter (1st Place Division F, International Contest Winner) and host Dawn Kamara, ACG, ALB.
