Imagine delivering an elevator pitch to an executive who holds the future to your dreams, and the person says "sounds interesting, please call my office and schedule a meeting. I'd like to talk to you in more depth about this idea." Wouldn't it be great to know that you can entice anyone into wanting a meeting with you after just a 30 second conversation?
