Practicing Your Elevator Speech
You never know when someone's going to ask you what you do, right? You need to have a short synopsis that you can deliver naturally. Here's what I did to learn mine:
We all need to drink 6 to 8 glasses of water per day, right? So what happens, though, when you follow that regime? Right, you have to make 6 to 8 trips to the "little virtual assistant's room". Take advantage of those frequent powder room breaks by taping your "elevator speech" to the bathroom mirror.
While you're washing your hands, you read your speech to yourself in the mirror. 'They' say you should wash your hands for 20 seconds, which is -- happy coincidence -- the amount of time your elevator speech should take.
