My five-year-old daughter summons me to her room at 5:03 yesterday morning, motions for me to lie down next to her, and asks “What’s that noise?”
A faint drumming.
I hear it.
And I have to admit, I’m a little baffled as well.

And I just can’t place it.
So I mumble something about gutters and snow, then head to the bathroom to get her a drink of water.
Looking out the bathroom window, the noise clicks into place.

And it gets me thinking about your Elevator Pitch.

Apparently it’s easy to forget.

You have to keep reminding people of your message.

They’ll get distracted.
The only solution is to keep showing up.
Keep giving your Elevator Pitch.
And like the return of the spring rain
You’ll hear people say
“Oh yeah. I’ve been meaning to call you…”
