  • Clear reasons why your potential investors and customers should care about your business.
    • Why should potential investors and customers care about your business?
  • Question 4: What’s your “why?” (Motivation)

    Simon Sinek, Leadership Expert, helps people find the why in everything they do…and that’s important because it’s the why that keeps us inspired and motivates us to take action. Studies have shown that decision making, although a complex process, is really rooted in emotion. (That’s right logic and emotion and not in opposition!)

    Your emotions support your decision-making abilities. Use this knowledge to demonstrate that your reasons for your goal and your ask aren’t just about the money. Focus on the intrinsic motivators that really keep you moving ahead. Ask yourself:

    • Who do I want to help or inspire?
    • Who benefits from my work?
    • Why do I enjoy the work I am doing?

You board an elevator in a high-rise office building. Just before the doors close, in walks Bill Gates Jr.--the world's richest human being, who can fund your entire business plan out of his pocket change. You and Mr. Gates are completely, totally alone, and you have his undivided attention for a few moments. What would you say?

If you are an entrepreneur, you would launch into your "elevator pitch"--a carefully prepared, well-rehearsed summary of who you are, what you do and why you are better at it than anyone else. It's the verbal equivalent of your business card, but it needs to say much, much more, and it needs to say it very quickly.

It's called an "elevator pitch," by the way, because it shouldn't be longer than the time it takes for an elevator to rise or fall 20 stories--about 30 to 45 seconds on average. In that time, you must:

  • say who you are;
  • describe the salient features of your business plan;
  • and get your listener excited about what you do, so that they want to hear more details.

Most entrepreneurs have elevator pitches, but very few of them are effective. The three biggest mistakes people make in their elevator pitches are: 1) describing skills rather than purpose; (2) failing to tell an interesting story; and (3) forgetting to rehearse and prepare.

Skills vs. purpose. Too often, an elevator pitch merely describes your skills, as in "Hi, I'm Cliff Ennico, a lawyer and columnist." While this is 100 percent accurate information, it is totally useless, as it doesn't give a clue why the listener should care who you are. There are many types of lawyers and columnists in the world. What kind of work do you do? What is your specialty--the stuff you do best? What types of clients do you represent? What is your column about?

Instead of focusing on your skills, your pitch needs to describe the people you serve--your customers or clients--and how you add value to their lives. For example: "Hi, I'm Cliff Ennico. I help business start-ups solve their management and legal problems. I also have a syndicated newspaper column in which I answer difficult questions raised by business owners, entrepreneurs and self-employed professionals." Much better, no?

Tell your story. It's critical that an elevator pitch "hook" your listener--get them interested in who you are. Consider the following two pitches for the same company:

  • "Hi, I'm Jane Doe, president of XYZ Corp. We publish law books."
  • "Hi, I'm Jane Doe, president of XYZ Corp. We publish books, newsletters, audio programs and seminars designed to help lawyers and other legal professionals manage their careers better. Our best-selling title, How to Make Partner in 30 Days or Less, was named the book 'most frequently stolen from law schools around the country' in a recent poll of law librarians."

Both statements do the job, but the second one is much more compelling, isn't it? Even if you're not at all interested in legal publishing, you are just a tad curious about Jane Doe, aren't you? Maybe, just maybe, she's got a hot new niche publishing company and you should consider an early-stage investment.

Practice, practice, practice. You never know when you will need your elevator pitch. Situations like the elevator encounter with Bill Gates happen all the time, usually without warning. If you've got a terrific pitch, but can't call it to mind at a moment's notice, it's the same as not having an elevator pitch at all.

Nothing--I mean nothing--sounds worse than a badly prepared elevator pitch, or one that sounds overly "rehearsed." If you stumble over your pitch, it may just be a case of the jitters, but many people will assume you don't really know what you do for a living!

Just like an actor or a stand-up comedian, you need to rehearse and improve your elevator pitch constantly, so it flows like butter from your tongue. It should come out of your mouth without forethought, as a Pavlovian reflex, exuding confidence, energy and enthusiasm.

Day 37(Wednesday & Thursday) Generating Business Ideas

Micro-Enterprise Ideas Presentation

  1. Think of 25 companies that could be started for under $500.  You have 5 minutes.  Switch papers with the next team.  Continue brainstorming but you only have 4 minutes.  Swap again but now you only have 3 minutes.  This continues until you get your team's paper back.  *NO repeating companies on the sheet.

·         Ideal Entrepreneur to run the business: interests; necessary skills, training or credentials; time available to devote to the business; equity available; personality and temperament, etc.

·         Required Resources to start the business: amount of money (with specific breakdown of start-up costs), equipment, space, employees and key people, etc.

·         Ideal Customer to support the business: needs, characteristics, etc.

  1. Your group will pitch the idea while including the key components from the topics above. Your group should note, all groups members should speak.

 

REFLECTION:

After your presentation, each group member should write a reflection discussion based on the following questions.  This should be well-written in complete sentences using proper grammar and punctuation.  Please upload your reflection to the appropriate eClass dropbox. 

  • How did you create the profile of your target business?
  • What surprised you about the business you researched?
  • How feasible would this business be for you, in this community, given the resources available to you? What would make it an even better possibility?
  • Why is it important for an entrepreneur to consider these factors (the entrepreneur, resources required, and community characteristics) when choosing a business?
  • What makes a business “real”? Do these micro-enterprises qualify? Why or why not?
  • How can you utilized what you have learned through this project when developing your own micro-business start-up?
