Your Story in Network Marketing | 30 second speech | Jackie Ulmer, Direct Sales Coach and Social Networking Trainer

I'd love it if this article was titled "Your Story; 30 Second Speech" because it applies to any business person (not just those in MLMs) who struggles to tell his/her story at any networking event.
