Weekly Business Update - Elevator Speech - Old school or Cash machine?

Firstly, sincere apologies for the usual weekly business update being SOOO late... I had a close family member pass away in the past 2 weeks and her funeral was on Wednesday. In addition, I am also questioning whether a weekly business update is what you're wanting? Perhaps a monthly update? That is a question to ask another time...

In place of the weekly business update, I am sharing the 60 second Elevator Speech video I recently recorded. Why? Because having a 60 seconds or less summary of who you are and what you do and why is gold, gold, gold. Sadly many dismiss it or don't even know what it is. Therefore here is what I believe should be the construction of your elevator speech:

0 - 10 seconds
Name (First and Surname), title, Company name - include any explanations such as my title is Master Networker and I usually summarise what that means and what my business is too.

10 - 30 seconds
Niche - why you are different, what makes you stand out from the crowd. For example, at Out of the Box Biz we actively connect our members both in between events and during.

30 - 60 seconds
Case study of a client you have helped, describing how

Here is an example:

Weekly Business Update - How to Define Your Ideal Client

This week has been a very full-on week in business and also personally as I had a family member pass away unexpectedly over the weekend. Therefore I had this video completed and edited but never shared to let you all know - apologies - so back on deck and here it is below.

I was inspired to share this topic How to Define Your Ideal Client because it is one of the top 5 topics I always cover with every mentoring client I work with. It is also something that all business professionals should define and review regularly. I also cover why bother with defining your Ideal Client too:
