Do you have a hard time explaining your business?
Do potential customers have a hard time finding the value in your service?
Do you have difficulty answering the question, “why you”?
Listen in as Joie Gharrity founder of No. 113 BRANDING explains the importance of a professional pitch and how to craft your own.
Joie worked in the Hollywood entertainment industry for more than 15 years at top companies, such as The Walt Disney Company and Sony Pictures, in film, television, original web content, and branded entertainment. She was encouraged and taught techniques and strategies by high-level mentors on how to express her unique point of view in both her professional and personal life, which she refers to as her “brand.”
As her brand grew stronger she gained greater visibility, presence and impact, which in turn gained her greater influence and rewards in her field. She was hand-picked by the ABC Studio President to join the Stage 9 team which launched the first multi-media startup business for The Walt Disney Company.
After returning to the Bay Area, Joie was inspired to launch No. 113 BRANDING. She integrates her techniques and strategic branding vision with both the creative and business sides of the entertainment industry for her clients. Her techniques and strategies gain them greater influence and higher levels of success.
Joie Gharrity is committed to helping professional women around the world leverage their unique personal and professional brand.
Listen in as she shares her 5 Steps to Creating a Successful Professional Pitch.
More and more women are taking the leap and starting their own business. It could be a brand new idea, a franchise, a direct sales business, or some other configuration but women are stepping out from the “My Girl Friday” role and into being their own boss. It is amazingly powerful and inspirational to watch and witness. But it is also uncharted territory for so many. For so long the world of business has been a man’s world, the old boys’ network if you will. As more and more women are stepping into leading roles in business there is a great need to find support, education, and camaraderie from those going through the same thing.
Personally I host a Small Business Empowerment Group to help individuals through the ups and downs and ins and outs of business ownership. It is open to all people no matter of gender or business. It is a great and powerful group, but it does not do for women what B.I.G. does. B.I.G. stands for Believe Inspire Grow and this networking group for women does just that. There are elements of the traditional networking group and there is the potential for building strong power partners. But B.I.G. is more than that. There is a very strong educational component to the group. This is not solely a lead generation group. B.I.G. focuses on growing the knowledge and talents of women business owners. It is a strong nurturing environment where women can learn, grow, share, support, and brainstorm with other women.
Learn more about his unique group by listening to Vickie Anderson, B.I.G. Chicago Regional Leader and Hoffman Estates Pod Leader, and Diane Beaulieu, Carol Stream Pod Leader on The Empowerment Show. Hear first-hand experiences of these two business owners and learn how the B.I.G. concept has help them and the other women business owners in their group.
