Kill the Elevator Speech: Stop Selling, Start Connecting
Contrary to popular marketing and networking wisdom, regurgitating a memorized “elevator speech” all over a poor unsuspecting soul who happens to ask the dreaded “what do you do?” question, does not work to establish a true connection with another human being.
Kill the Elevator Speech is about why those standard, memorized verbal vomits are so horribly wrong and what to do and say instead that will actually bring people together, help others understand who you are, and create the beginnings of a referral and professional relationship to go beyond the initial handshake and obligatory card swap.
The reader will learn how to walk into any room, confidently knowing how to handle, answer and completely address the question “what do you do?” with ease and grace, while also making the person they are speaking to feel comfortable and connected.
Praise for Kill the Elevator Speech: Stop Selling, Start Connecting
This book is great for any communicator. Lots of great tips, but most importantly takes away the need to have a memorized “elevator speech” when networking and meeting new people. Instead Felicia recommends putting the focus on the other person first. I loved the list of questions to ask when meeting someone for the first time as it gives you a starting place. Not only will you learn that you do NOT need an elevator speech (YAY!) but you’ll also learn about how to create your signature speech and much more. Highly recommended!

Praise for Daily Business Meeting With God:
Felicia does more in the introduction that many authors accomplish with their entire book. I highly recommend it for anyone who loves God and lives here on earth. The author gives a practical framework to develop, stretch, and integrate your faith in God with your everyday roles, responsibilities, and opportunities. This is not just a book to quickly read and forget. It gives you a system to use on a daily basis. If we put it into practice, it will revolutionize your work life.
