Whether you decide to write your own bio or have your bio written professionally, your bio must have a theme — specifically, your life’s theme.
What is the definition of a theme? It is the driving force behind why you do what you do.
When writing your own bio, a theme isn’t always easy to find. For example, let’s say you went into a training program to be a medical technician. For the last 20 years, you’ve been working steadily and advancing in your career. After 20 years, you decided that you are going to switch careers and drive a bus, working for the local transit as a city employee.
The force behind that decision is a theme in your life. It is the only reason you do what you do. If we knew what life’s theme was, it would answer many mysteries.
A bio writer will have certain questions that they ask to uncover a theme in your life. These questions are simple and non-threatening, but will hold impact. A professional bio writer is impartial and doesn’t make judgements, and this is exactly what you need for a well-written bio.
The reason a theme is hard to pinpoint is because we gravitate to the easiest logical answer, and that is not always correct. In fact, if everything were based on logic, life would be easier to figure out, because everything would be black and white.
The Last To Know
You’d think that we would all know ourselves, and certainly we would know what our theme is in life, but you’d be surprised how the universe keeps that from us. Then someone might ask us, “What compelled you to do XYZ?” Then we have an epiphany and we’ve just discovered the driving force behind why we do what we do.
