10 Tips for Writing a Stand-Out Bio

June 20th, 2018

Do you need to write a new Artist’s Biography but you’re not sure if you’re doing it right? You’re in the right place! In this episode I give you 10 Tips and Best Practices for writing effective great bios for programs, websites, grant proposals, and for any occasion so that you can stand out from the crowd and let people know from just the first sentence why they should care about you and keep reading no matter where you are in your career! You’ll learn about common mistakes and what not to do when deciding what to put in or leave out of your bio.  

 

You’ll also hear about my brand new episode series, Women In Hollywood, that’s coming soon, about the 36th annual San Francisco Jazz Festival, Monsieur Periné, why being in the audience pisses me off just a little.  Click here to go to podcast gifts and sign up for a free copy of the Build Your 'You Are 'Da Bomb!'
