Writing your own bio is like sitting in the bathtub waiting for an ‘Eureka’ moment. You want to make it compelling without sounding too pompous, yet you want to make sure you don’t miss a thing.
Should I mention the dog that I don’t have?
What if I start with a question? “What would happen if Philosophy married Creativity?” Good – that summarizes my career as a “Novel Philosopher.”
I could sneak in that I’m also a Public Speaking Coach, Adman, Filmmaker, obsessed about learning and creating cultural change. Don’t forget to mention that you are the founder of a professional development academy called Novel Philosophy, and now the co-host of the “Ideas On Trial” Podcast.
The water rises and makes you slightly drunken. Then, thunder grabs your belly. You jump off the bathtub to tell the world you’re pregnant with an idea, only to slip face down. You miss a charming introduction; but, you walk out with a new purpose: To help people sharpen their minds, sculpt their characters, and uncage their voices.
