Expert Helps Clients Create Killer Pitches that ‘Pay and Slay’
Elevator pitches, sales pitches, media pitches and investor pitches that “convert conversations into currency” don’t happen by accident — and you never know who may be listening, says Precious L. Williams, founder of Perfect Pitches By Precious.
“Companies, corporations, nonprofits and foundations bring me in to show them where the money resides. And it really resides in creating killer pitches that pay and slay,” said Williams, a 13-time national elevator pitch champion who launched Perfect Pitches by Precious to revolutionize the pitching industry.
“As the Pitch Queen, it’s been very important for me to share with others: you pitch every day,” she added. “When I’m in any space, I have strategies in my mind. When I’m blessed with the microphone, you’re going to remember Precious Williams.”
The self-described “full-figured diva from St. Louis” admits she made every mistake in the book before making it big as a bestselling author and CEO of Perfect Pitches By Precious. Today, she shares the power of creating the perfect pitch with audiences that number in the thousands, but she climbed a higher mountain than most people realize to get there.
“You can make every mistake in the world. You can fail a lot of times and still wind up on top because persistence beats resistance,” Williams said. “There’s no way I should be where I am today.”
As recently as 2018, Williams was living in a women’s center in New York City, battling depression and addiction. She shares her profound transformation — and her empowering philosophy — in her latest book, The Pitch Queen: A Woman’s Journey From Poverty To Purpose & Profits. In it, she paves the way for others who are struggling by proving there is power in embracing one’s authentic self — flaws and all.
“My journey has been about showing others how to give birth to their next beautiful now, right now,” Williams said. “I want you to take the things that people say are your flaws and make them your secret weapons.”
In The Pitch Queen, Williams takes readers inside the biggest challenges of her life, revealing that she once dated a former drug kingpin, battled with her sexuality, lost her mind, got evicted twice and was kicked out of law school. She refused to give up, and she rebuilt her business empire with the very bricks that once blocked her path.
Key takeaways from The Pitch Queen include:
-The importance of resilience and how to overcome adversity
– How to develop a winning mindset
-The power of focus and consistency
– How to take control of your life and create the future you want
“The Pitch Queen is more than just a story; it’s a call to action,” Williams said. “It’s time for you to take control of your life and create the future you want.”
