Resumes are so last year! Want a real power tool that will seriously open doors for you? It’s called a pitch. And while most people know they need one, few can deliver a powerful one on seconds notice. And that can make or break an potential opportunity on the spot. Just think about how many you could have lost recently.
Do you cringe when someone asks: So…”What’s your story?” Don’t worry, you’re not alone. It’s a loaded question. Where do you begin? What do you say? How can you possibly answer something like this, let alone without boring someone to death with a long-winded account of your life story.
In order to make your past work for you, it helps to put things in perspective. Don’t just look at your life from one angle—it wasn’t all good or bad, funny or sad. To get a clear perspective of your life to date, take a step back and start chronicling the history of you.
