If you’ve ever sat down to think about a personal pitch — maybe before a job interview, a public presentation, or even a family event — chances are you probably found yourself getting bogged down in the little details.

It’s easy to default to describing yourself like this: “I’m [name], I am a [occupation] for [place] and I specialize in [skill], [skill], [skill], and [skill].” It’s also easy to see why going that route can feel predictable at best and yawn-inducing-snooze-fest at worst.

Good pitches do a few things: they’re succinct, they’re genuine, and they make it perfectly clear what you do and why you do it. But the best pitches take it a step further — they inspire delight. That’s why today I’m showcasing some of mine and the Career Contessa team’s favorite women’s pitches and breaking down exactly what makes them special. These women prove that once you know the rules of personal branding, it’s time to start breaking them. The result? Major “I have to know her” moments. You can also use this free personal pitch worksheet to create your own pitch.

    Awesome words from amazing women. I loved what Wolfe’s motivation was when starting Bumble! I’m not single, so I haven’t used the app, but many of my friends have and find it to be one of their favorite dating apps!
