Do you panic when someone asks you for your bio? You’ve agreed to write an article, a guest post, speak at a workshop and now you have to tell your audience who you are?
Is your About page on your website “Under Construction”, or is it very brief, bland or uninspiring?
Do you sit there staring at a blank screen, not knowing where to start?
Do you find that writing about your accomplishments and successes feels uncomfortable?
This happened to me many times back when I first had to present myself to others who knew nothing about me. My About Me page on my personal blog has had many re-writes and it changes as I do.
Many people have told me that writing their bios and About pages is a struggle and they really wanted something to help them prepare something memorable, yet succinct.
I’ve heard some fantastic speaker introductions and read some great About Me pages in the last 25 years. I’ve discovered that they all had five key factors in common. They all answered five questions about the person being introduced. Or at least the ones that I’ve remembered did, because they were engaging and immediately warmed me to the author or speaker.
I explore these questions in this ebook.
