One of the most important things you can do, as a business owner, is to have a biography of yourself ready to give to the media. When a reporter calls you, you want to present yourself in the best possible light. Well, one mistake that many people make, when writing their bio, is that they merely lift material from their resume, including long lists such as degrees earned, honors achieved, and employment history. That’s ok – but it’s boring. Sometimes the most talented authors write the worst bios. Instead, you should ask yourself some questions that may produce fascinating answers. Who is your hero – and why? What event in your childhood had the greatest effect on your life?? If you weren’t doing what you are doing now, what other job would you have? What lesson from Mom do you still live by today? What’s the craziest thing you’ve ever done? These questions can help turn your biography from bland, to grand. I saw this as a copywriter, and as a plastic surgery marketing expert and publicist and a cosmetic dentistry marketing expert and publicist, who has a way with words!
