How To Write Your Professional Summary Like An Elevator Pitch
Site Secrets It is important to write your Professional Summary in a way that communicates your vital message. This is the first glimpse into the strength and reputation of your tax expertise. The goal is to motivate viewers to see you as an authority in your area of tax and take action!

In Silicon Valley, everyone depends on their elevator pitch to promote themselves. An elevator pitch is an interesting and upbeat way to describe what you do. It is a tightly focused professional summary and motivates others to take an interest in you. A great elevator pitch motivates prospective clients, business relationships and potential employers to become more interested in you! Your pitch should center around these four questions:

1. What problem(s) do you solve?
2. What is it that you actually do?
3. What kind of success have you experienced?
4. What is your goal or mission?

The message must be strong and unique enough to get people to pay attention to you. What tax problems do you address? Explain what it is that you do that provides a solution. Give examples of relatable experiences with others and what you are doing that will help them solve problems. Let them know you have a purpose and what that purpose is! Gain a significant professional advantage when you build a Professional Summary that motivates people to take action with you.

Example Template - Build A Compelling Professional Summary

My name is XXXXXXX and I am a (Tax Title) with (years of experience) in (three areas of tax expertise). Explain what your tax expertise will do for others; what problems do you solve? What technical skills do you bring to an organization? Now provide examples of work you have done that have produced great results for your client or company. My purpose is to (save you time and money on your tax return, protect you on tax audits, represent you professionally, etc. or My purpose is to assist companies on building a tax department…. or My purpose is to find a new tax job as a Tax Director in the San Francisco, CA area… Please contact me about any consulting projects you have in (i.e. international tax, federal tax, expatriate, partnership taxes, etc..).

Taping And Uploading Video To Your Professional Profile Page
  1. Tutorials
    Location
    You will need to find a quiet place to record your teachings. Are there any noises around you that would affect the taping? Are there any ambient noises such as air conditioning, traffic or airplanes that could be obtrusive to the audio of the video? Our ears/brain ignores sounds that microphones hear.
  2. Tutorials
    Wardrobe
    We suggest wearing professional attire. Always avoid wearing items of clothing that have reds and thin stripes.
  3. Tutorials
    Camera
    We suggest a camera with a video quality of at least 1080p. It is best to place the camera about 3-4 feet from you and at eye level to record.
  4. Tutorials
    Background
    We suggest a basic white background during taping; you can purchase a white screen online through Amazon for under a hundred dollars. View video instructions at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HW-P_-Xu7-Q
  5. Tutorials
    Lighting
    The easiest solution is to make a 3-point lighting setup. You can watch a YouTube video of how to set it up.
  6. Tutorials
    Microphone
    You will need a clip-on lapel microphone. These are usually wireless and come with a box that connects to your video camera. Having your microphone as close as possible to your mouth will help the best. Reverberation can be a problem with audio recording. Clapping your hands will check for bad echoes. Reverb is caused by sound getting trapped between two parallel surfaces bouncing back and forth from them. Rooms with lot of different objects are usually the best as they break up the reverberation.

    Recording
    Make sure you know how long your video camera can record before starting. This way you won’t be interrupted in the middle of the session you are recording.
