10 Questions to Craft a Great Bio

In the previous post I shared a few tips on How to Write a [remarkable] Professional Bio. Your bio is one of the most important marketing pieces you will ever write and one of the most read pieces you will share. Here are a few questions to help you update yours so it conveys the message you want.

Questions to ask yourself:

  1. What are you most passionate about professionally? Personally?
  2. What would you do even if you didn’t get paid to do it?
  3. What are you surprisingly good at?
  4. What’s the biggest proof that you’re good at what you do?
  5. How long have you been working in your field?
  6. What’s your biggest accomplishment?
  7. How does your education connect to your professional career? What about personal experiences?
  8. What problems do you consistently solve for your clients?
  9. What are you complimented on most in your work?
  10. Who is your ideal client and why should they connect with you?

    These articles are both helpful and affirming; helpful in the new thoughts and questions, affirming in realizing that I’m on the right page as many of these thoughts are already in my repertoire. Both are of value to me; thanks!

    These questions actually bring a unique approach to bios,and I like that you asked them to connect their education to their current career. I’m constantly trying to work on bios for my clients, but I think that these questions will also help me create a stellar bio for myself. Thanks Nicole!

      You’re so welcome! Bios for other people are tough things to write…but needed. I commend you for doing a little research for new ideas! I save good ones to Evernote when I find them.
