Changes are often postponed. So at the moment when we finally decide to do something, to change our lives, we want it quickly, immediately, now. We have no appetite for living as we used to: staying in the same job, or still unemployed, remaining in the same relationship, or the same country. But we know all too well that changes take time. So the question of today´s blog is:

How do you survive the time it takes till you achieve your remote goal?

Introducing yourself: What to say after your name (Your elevator pitch)

The typical way to introduce yourself is to say your name and then what your job is: „I work as...“ or „I am... “. There is nothing incorrect about it, yet it does not say much.

The tip to making your introduction more interesting is to insert one more sentence, between your name and the job. The sentence will describe one benefit you bring. This structure is referred to as an elevator pitch. Use this article to prepare yours in such a way that it sounds natural to you and easy to use.
