Pitching is something I dread. I'm not good at selling anything, much less, my personal work. However, the information I learned in Michelle's Pitch Perfect course was practical and applicable.I used some of her tips in recent pitch sessions and felt at ease and prepared. If you're like me, take this course and learn how to pitch what God has placed on your heart. And be prepared for success!
