Who are you and what do you do?

When you meet someone and they ask what you do, how do you answer?

For some, it’s an easy answer:

“I’m an attorney at blank firm”
“I’m a soccer coach at blank university”
“I’m a consultant”

However, if you’re intention is to get that persons attention and have them remember you, you might want to give a bit of thought to your introduction.

Instead of “I’m an attorney at blank firm” you might change it to “I protect the innocent”. Trust me, the conversation will NOT stop their.

Instead of “I’m a soccer coach” you might change it to “I influence today’s youth to make a better tomorrow”. They WILL want details.

Instead of “I’m a consultant” you might change it to “I make good better and better the best”

There are times when you want to discontinue a conversation as quickly as possible. Those are the times to stick with “just the facts”

The other times, when you want to network, or enhance yourself in some way, consider being a bit more creative in how you present yourself.

So, what do you do?

Have a great day!

  1. I like it! Now instead of saying, “I’m a photographer”… I will say “I capture memories of you and your loved ones you will cherish forever.” Perfectttt.

  2. Emily,

    Some people will read what I wrote and say “this is stupid, it doesn’t really matter”. Others will recognize the potential and take advantage of it. Still others will say “yeah that probably will work” but never take the first step

    Good luck

    Lawrence
