I'm sweating from anxiety and anxiousness! This is my baby that I'm pitching for the first time on the phone December 6th. Please help this sweaty boy with some advice!

Relax dude. It often doesn't work out. You'll do okay, don't worry, its killing.

Be yourself, be natural and conversational. You are selling yourself as much as you are selling your project. Practice with people you know and get feedback.
Structure, Practice, then invite them along the ride.
For the Structure - https://www.stage32.com/sites/stage32.com/files/cake/screenplays/586c11e...
Practice by recording yourself and playing back. Get it down to 5-6min so the Exec has time to ask questions. Make it as tonally appropriate as possible (funny for a comedy, weighted for a drama), and pitch to as many others as you can before then (we have a weekly practice for peer feedback in the Writer's Room: https://www.stage32.com/writersroom)
And on the day... just invite them to fall in love with it the way you have! Everyone wants to get excited about a project, so share that enthusiasm with them. At the very least, you'll make their day a little brighter (and in turn, yours will be better, too).
Good luck, and let us know how it goes!
Ya'll are easing my mind with the overwhelming positive advice! AND THIS is why I love the Stage 32 community!
Aww, you're welcome, sir! Let us know how it goes!
Update: It went better than expected...they want to read my pilot!!!!!
