My Elevator Pitch

Professional writers call them “elevator pitches.” If you had only a short elevator ride to pitch your book to a (pick one) agent, publisher or reader, what would you say?

Well, here’s mine:

Retirement can be scary. It was for me. The temptation is to see it as an ending—to physical abilities, mental agility, important relationships, meaningful work, decent income—and the freedom and joy these bring.

But research shows it doesn’t have to be that way.

Never have I had more opportunity to chase my dreams.

Never have I had more opportunity to help others do the same.

That’s been my experience. And that’s what my book is all about.

  1. I have read the book. This elevator pitch does not sound like you or the book. The last three sentences are closer to the fun, passion and intent of the book you have written. Maybe start with your “never” statements???

    1. I agree, Donna. That’s why I asked for comments. Wasn’t sure about this one. Besides my elevator pitch is basically what I give on the book’s back cover. Thanks for the comment.

  2. Elevator pitch:
    Hi! I’m Otis, your elevator. You wouldn’t have gotten in here if you didn’t believe I would get you up to the floor for your appointment.
    With the same confidence, please believe me when I recommend a great book written by Dr Mike Bellah, “The Best is Yet to Be. “
    Dr. Mike and I have similar interests, helping you get where you are going.
    I move you up or down stairs. Dr. Bellah helps you maneuver through the difficulties of planning for or beginning retirement.
    Have a great day and watch your step.
