Greet from the deep,
Remember a few editions ago when I opened the newsletter with a short story about my past as a struggling DJ in Germany?
How I lost everything in the FTX crash before discovering the power of AI?
Or that one time I ate 349 chicken nuggets in one go at McDonalds after 7 days of raving?
Well, every introduction like that was an elevator pitch:
A brief, powerful introduction to capture attention and convey the core idea.
And in just a few sentences…
…it gave you a "first impression" of:
Who I am

How to use my CRISP framework to craft your elevator pitch
The best elevator pitches are short and… crisp.
Like my favorite chips:
Most people don’t understand this.
I just googled “examples of famous elevator pitches” and this HUGE block of text came up.
I won’t even bother reading it.
Many entrepreneurs mistakenly think that elevator pitches should convert a stranger into a buyer in 60 seconds.
This is NOT an elevator pitch.
That’s a f*cking bad, long sales letter.
This mistake is silently killing their chances of getting a foot in the door.
The goal of your elevator pitch is to spark a strangers’ interest for a future conversation in 60 seconds.
I believe everyone has the attention span of a gold fish and we need to be concise and punchy to get our message along.
The secret to do this?
Making the elevator pitch concrete…
…yet curiosity-invoking at the same time.
The easiest way to to this is to teach my CRISP framework to ChatGPT:
That’s why I created the CRISP framework for creating elevator pitches:
My CRISP framework:
C - Condense
Write down ALL primary elements of your background, offerings, and goals.
Highlight the 3 compelling aspects of your ideas and align them with the audience's interests.
I - Identity
Add a pinch of personality to your pitch - what’s unique about you?
S - Simulation:
Practice the pitch with a timer. No more than 30 seconds allowed. Record yourself, listen, critique, and refine.
P - Personalize: Adjust the pitch depending on how you talk to
For example, my Relevance is that I help solopreneurs save time and make more money.
What’s special about my Identity is that I like Goulash, Techno, and beer with ice cubes.
So after workshopping the elevator pitch, this is my final one:
I’m Ole, The AI Solopreneur. I help solopreneurs save 20 hours a week with AI so they can focus on what matters - making more money and having a beer in the sun.
What do you think?
Don’t worry - you don’t have to do this by yourself.
