2. Create your personal ONLY statement

Your competitive value proposition that sets you apart from others. 

Stop talking about your credentials; start talking about what you do that no one else does. 

“I am the only one out there that has the combination of sales and operations experience required to take the sales function to a different level in ANY organization.” will earn you the right to have a conversation about how you stand-out from the herd not fit into it.
