Section 2: Introduction

Celebrities and corporations understand the importance of conveying vision, mission and purpose statements through branding.Unfortunately, busy professionals do not take the time to do the same.


The first step in identifying your purpose is to do a self evaluation or inventory of your strengths and perceived weakness.


Today – we will define the following as:

Vision: An aspirational description of what an organization would like to achieve or accomplish in the mid-term or long-term future.

Mission: A statement of the purpose and its reason for existing. The mission statement should guide the actions of the organization, spell out its overall goal, provide a path, and guide decision-making. It provides "the framework or context within which the strategies are formulated." It's like a goal for what they want to do for the world.

Purpose: A purpose statement is a declarative sentence which summarizes the specific topic and goals.


The next exercise is to list your passion, experiences, talents and skills.For this exercise, we are defining those terms as:

Passion: things you are inspired toward (purpose)- This are things that you can’t help but accomplish because your are driven to do them.

Experiences: developed after you are born through time – This are things that you can’t help but accumulate. The act of living will create your experiences.

Talents: things you are naturally gifted with (internal) – These are things that come easily to you because they are inherently in you

Skills: things you develop outside of you; by doing and practice (external)

Since skills is the only one of these 4 that are external (something you develop outside of you) - your life will be much easier if you continue to develop skills that align with your talent and passions.


Sample questions that your elevator pitch should answer:

•Who am I?

•What do I offer?

•What problem is solved?

•What are the main contributions I can make?

• What should the listener do as a result of hearing this?


Quick 3-step approach

Step 1: Ask a question that grabs

Step 2: Introduce yourself and show how you can solve your clients’ problems successfully.

Step 3: End with a strong call to action

The truth is chaos does not have to be a way of life.

Hi, my name is Laura Rose. I am a speaker and author. My background is in time and project management.

I help busy professionals and entrepreneurs create effective systems so that they can comfortably delegate to others, be more profitable and have time to enjoy life even if they don’t have time to learn new technology or train their staff. I have a knack for taking big ideas and converting them into smart, sound, and actionable ideas.

At the end of the day, I give people peace of mind.


Even though Laura excelled in the corporate environment, she felt a calling toward something more.Laura now uses her time management, work life balance and personal development skills as a efficiency coach and Corporate Exit Strategist.Laura Lee Rose helps people blend their goals and dreams into their everyday lives.

Personal note from Laura:

Thank you for spending this time to learn more about me and my clients.

My clients and potential clients are, like you, all doing well.But sometimes we want more from life.We feel that these challenging economic times prohibit us from creating the life we were meant to live.

When we integrate all that we are into what we do, we are free from doubt. We are at our best because we are working through inspiration. But it's difficult to follow one's passion, if we don't know what inspires us. Or we can't find the time.

I use my corporate project management, people management and client advocacy background to help my clients identify and tap into what excites and delights them. I help my clients identify, focus and hold onto their dreams. My clients find that by incorporating their passions into their every day, their lives become fuller, more joyous and prosperous. My clients and I use this collaborative relationship, to help define creative and practical approaches to continually and eagerly move forward.

My business is growing quickly through referrals.Please keep me in mind when talking with friends and associates.Once your friends experience this for themselves they will understand the value of coaching.With this in mind, I would like to offer you and your friends the gift of two free sample sessions.
