You could test yourself today and see how well you do. What you will discover is you either do or do not have an effective 15 second pitch ready to astound new contacts.

As women we have a hard time talking about our positive attributes. Describing our best qualities to someone makes us feel like we are boasting. Listening to someone else compliment us makes us uncomfortable. Acknowledging our own successes makes us wonder why we aren’t doing more. But in order to be successful as women entrepreneurs we have to become more comfortable listening to, receiving feedback and delivering the reasons someone should do business with us.
