Your work, in brief

Question
What's the best way to answer the question, "What do you do?"? 
Answer
The best way to answer such a question is to consider defining your work as a benefit statement rather than a noun that will inevitably have societal connotations (such as lawyer, consultant, insurance agent, speaker, or housewife).

Try "I create stunning smiles," "I help clients reclaim financial losses," "I teach professionals to speak with power," or "I am raising my family."

It should be brief and sufficiently unique and interesting to be memorable. Then, you can follow this up with specific information.
