How do you become a 13-time pitch champion? “I did it out of necessity—my back was up against the wall,” Precious said as we began. “No one would listen to a fat Black woman.” Killer pitches became Precious’s survival mechanism—even during challenging times.
“What you want to do is interrupt the pattern of boring,” Precious said on her approach to crafting killer pitches. This includes owning and sharing your unique story.
“When you sound like everyone else, you get treated like everyone else,” Precious cautioned. You also have to train your network on how to refer others to you. This is a focus of Precious’s new book Rainmaking 101 from Day One.
What brand has made Precious smile recently? Precious told another amazing story here—sharing how SA Sweets sent her both an amazing product with excellent service. “And the owner is another Black woman with a dream. I want to give ‘em some fire!”
