Can you tell a “professional visitor” from “someone who really wants to get business done?”
Have you ever met someone, had a brief discussion, then afterwards wondered . . .
· What was her/his name again?
· What did he/she say she did?
· Why would I care?
· Did he/she want something?
There are those that dive into a well-rehearsed elevator pitch....like a runaway train, full speed ahead without regard or understanding of where they are going.
Some people believe in the “throw enough crap at the wall something will stick” approach to selling. But when you are selling yourself, what you do or how you get it done, this method can just leave a real mess to clean up later.
