The Pitch Episode 44:
If It’s Broke Fix It

Read:

Multiple rejections on your pitch could be a warning sign that something is not working. Don’t ignore these red flags and blindly keep pitching. Before you continue to pitch, recognize that your original idea or concept for your pitch may not be as sellable or as relevant as you think it is. Once you acknowledge this, it will allow you the freedom to make changes. You may have to trash your entire pitch and start from scratch, or you may be able to salvage what you have by making a few pivots in your approach. “The Pitch” challenge today: Be more aware of roadblocks in your day-to-day interactions with others and recognize when someone pushes back on you how to pause and regroup versus bulldozing ahead like a bull in a china shop. Practicing your intuitiveness with others will make you more dialed in to recognize when a pitch is broken and needs to be fixed.
