That Story is probably something you could use in your presentations because: TheBody of the Speech is: Make a point – Tell a Story.
Let me give you an example.
There’s a picture of my grandson. He’s a year and a half and he’s going up the steps one-at-a-time. And I gotta tell you if I were doing the equivalent, it’d be going three or three and a half steps at a time. And I’d probably do one. But he’s going up those steps one-at-a-time.
It’s a Story of persistence, of having a goal, of not giving up and I can use that in the Story.
Here are THREE THINGS NOT to DRINK before you Speak!
Oh, it may wake you up, but you’ll also have to go to the bathroom more often. It’s a diuretic! You don’t want to be speaking and all of a sudden have to look for a john, do you?
How would it look and sound if you’re belching all the time at the lectern?
If you really think a shot of tequila or a Budweiser will calm your nerves. If you really believe that, the next time you’re undergoing major surgery and before the surgeon grabs that scalpel, ask him to have a shot. Ask, him to have two shots if you really believe that.

By ALL Elevator Speeches, I mean:
The Ultimate Elevator Speech, the EXPRESS Elevator Speech,
and the Twitter Type Elevator Speech.
Those Three Goals are:
Number One – I want you to know exactly what I do.
Then, you can make a decision. You want to talk to me right away, or . . .
Number Two – You know what I do.
You don’t need that product or service, but you would be comfortable talking with me in the future and . . .
Number Three – and just as important,
You know exactly what I do and your radar is now up so you can refer me.
If anyone ever says, “Hey, I’m looking for a product and service. Do you know anyone who does . . . ?” You’ll remember me.
