Best 30 second elevator pitch ever

I was leading a group the other day. Folks from all walks of life.  We were talking about self confidence, making a good first impression, and how to best introduce ourselves when we meet people for the first time.

We have all had the chance to sit down with a piece of paper a craft a “30 second elevator speech.” Each person took their shot at it. One in particular silenced the room. Let’s call it a walk-off home runIt was Roger, a job seeking Carpenter. He said… 

” I make beautiful chairs.”

I make beautiful chairs


game over

The class sat stunned. Some put their pens down.  One guy said.  “Wooden would’ve made it 5 damn words!” which made the group erupt in laughter. 

Truly a defining moment in elevator speeches. I have never heard one better!
