How To Pitch: The Rachel Sequoia Way
This three minute video has been making the rounds. It is a great video, and a great pitch. This actually fits my idea of a pitch. A pitch should be a video clip. "Passionate and irreverent, she presented her concept entitled Share The Air in bare-feet and using hand drawn illustrations to articulate her points. She was looking for $500,000 to help get her idea off the ground....." You can see her lift the energy in the room as she wades through. "I am not a fighter." I like that line. "I am a lover, not a fighter." "Air is at least 6% energy." Great. I have been wanting to say that the longest time. I said something similar in a blog post on January 29. You pack the revolution into the air. Bare feet. I like that. Awesome.

She is onto something here. This is not frivolous. If this is frivolous then photo taking is frivolous. "Here's the big idea. I will sell air." "A 10,000 dollar jar would be air from the top of Mount Everest." Ye for Nepal. "..... let's say, a mountain from Nepal." Yeah, Rachel, we are talking. She has a thing for Nepal. She is like, give me 500,000, I will bring Nepal to your home. ".... air, because it's a really good thing."
