You might have a resume, but do you have a bio? If you have one, do you think it’s the best it can be?
Or maybe you’ve had to write one but weren’t sure how to do it, and, just quickly typed something in exhaustion, knowing it didn’t really describe the “you” you want people to know?
When designing your website, one thing you’ll need to create is your “About” section. This is where you talk about you, your business and background, and whatever other details you want to share with readers. For this, a really well-crafted bio is vital.
The following blog shares six examples of bios that were so well developed Hubspot wrote a piece about them.

“A short, professional bio is one of those things most people don’t think about until, all of a sudden, we’ve been asked to “shoot one over via email” and have approximately one afternoon to come up with it.
That’s when we scramble.
And when we scramble, our bio ends up reading like this:
Rodney Erickson is a content marketing professional at HubSpot, an inbound marketing and sales platform that helps companies attract visitors, convert leads, and close customers. Previously, Rodney worked as a marketing manager for a tech software startup. He graduated with honors from Columbia University with a dual degree in Business Administration and Creative Writing.”
… Woof, that was dull. Are you still with me? I swear, not even adding a tidbit about his cats would liven that bio up.”
