"The purpose of the water pitch is to find out how people handle one-minute cycles of communication. It tells me if this person would be good in accounting or on the web team—not sales." — Grant Cardone.

Grant Cardone, international entrepreneur, real estate investor, expert sales trainer, television personality, New York Times bestselling author, and highly successful CEO put together a unique contest where he is giving away $1,000 to the person who can sell him on a simple glass of water. The contest comes in conjunction with Season 2 of his hit reality series "Whatever It Takes: The Ultimate Job Interview", where contestants had to pitch Cardone a glass of water to get hired.

The flood of submissions was cut down to a Top 25 on May 7th and from there voting is open to the public. People are encouraged to vote on their favorite pitch at

The Water Pitch was Cardone’s idea to find extraordinary people in a time when the job candidate pool seems to be degrading in quality and most candidates fail at even the most basic professional skills.These job seekers, from recent graduates to seasoned sales professionals, have trouble even pitching a glass of water.

Could you pitch a glass of water?

The art of pitching something is more difficult than most people realize, but it is a vital skill in today’s competitive marketplace. Grant Cardone teaches that there are many elements to a good pitch, which include things such as having a goal, getting the person’s attention, making a claim, determining if the person is a decision maker, qualifying the buyer, and hooking them.

The Water Pitch Contest has come at a time when nearly half of all 25 year-olds are living with their parents and 76% of all Americans are living paycheck to paycheck. Many job seekers not only don’t know how to pitch a glass of water—they don’t understand how to pitch themselves.
