Today, I'm interviewing my client Barbara Boldt. She is a specialist when it comes to pitching to mastering the messaging that you use when you are networking. When you're connecting with new people. When you're sharing who you are and how you help others. We have a really beautiful conversation about how she came to the work that she does and the things that you could be asking yourself in your business, in your networking that allow you to be more effective in your messaging so that folks know when they meet you if you are someone who can help them. This isn't always easy especially when we're doing it for ourselves. I know I've struggled with it for years so I know you'll take away a lot from this conversation. You'll get some questions to be asking yourself and you'll be thinking about how can I be a better communicator in my business so that I can increase how much I earn. Find better clients who are ideally suited to the work that you do. Enjoy...
Barbara said - "We learn new things, we meet new people or maybe we find another group of people who were able to help them we haven't thought about that. So I always talk about a pitch being a living breathing thing. It's never finished, it's never really done. There's a template and we customize it every time we give it depending on the audience."
