Stop Pitching!
Show Notes Chapter Markers

If you’ve watched Shark Tank, you know that entrepreneurs pitch their products to a panel of experts, hoping that someone will invest in them and their product. Pitching comes from a place of want. And while that works great in the Shark Tank, it’s not the best move to pitch when it comes to your career. 

 

Throughout my career and coaching my clients, I know that coming from a place of value and service will help you exponentially accelerate your career to achieve your goals. While many heart-centered leaders and professionals struggle with pitching, I want to offer you a better way. 

 

In this episode, I’m teaching you how to create your “Unique Professional Value Statement.” You’ll use this statement to help you communicate how you can help someone based on your expertise and do it without feeling as if you are bragging or boasting about how great you are.
