Crisp Copy No More Boring Biography Template
I’m about to lay a little truth on you – that person who just asked for your Biography was not in the market to be bored half to death. If you’re relying on letters after your name to boost your authority, or listing every single achievement you’ve racked up since birth without some humanity peppering your Bio, that’s exactly what you’re delivering.
Death by Boredom via Biography.
Unfortunately, singing your own praises (even in third person) is difficult for any non-narcissist. Oh, and you need to send someone (important) the entire thing before COB today.
Bonus: it’ll ask you all the right questions to show you how to create the entire thing just 2 sentences at a time.
Fill-in-the-blank templates are cool.
But they’re not exactly awe-inspiring.
That’s why this resource goes above and beyond by guiding you through a series of thought-provoking questions, designed to draw out your unique voice and personality.
Our aim? A bio hotter than a hit single, and your readers lining up for autographs, speaking gigs, podcast episodes, and conference jobs, credit cards in hand.
“Once upon a time, I was stuck writing my professional bio, my copy fairy dropped a magical PDF into my inbox and all of a sudden, I was no longer stuck! With just a few small but incredibly helpful cues, I whipped up my bio in seconds after I’d been staring at a blank Word document for hours beforehand.
Jay’s template made it really easy for me to get the words out, in the right order and infuse my personality in all the right places. Templates for the win!”
Kristi Lees – Health Detective (and owner of a ripper biography)
No thanks to sounding like a walking thesaurus or sucking the soul from your reader with your laundry list of achievements
Yes please to a Biography as memorable as Rihanna’s halftime Super Bowl show
And you don’t even have to perform pregnant for 13 full minutes. Bonus.
This boredom-scrapping biography template will have you writing a brilliant bio without the tantrums. It includes:

“…Much like all the other Crisp Copy resources and courses, it is a no brainer and kicked my butt into gear!…”
Nothing sweeter than a free upgrade!
Because this template is the same one we use in the Crisp Copy Class, every year it gets an upgrade. Yep, the tens of thousands of dollars I spend on my own knowledge development gets blended up in my mint green SMEG and ladled onto the top of all my downloadables like freshly whipped cream.
Every time I upgrade the package, add another real life example, or stack on some extra bonuses, you’ll get an email to let you know.
For the life of the course
“My perfect people now engage and respond to my words.”
Why learn from me?
Well, I bring the treats.
I’m not just bossy, I’m the boss. The bacon-bringer, the buck-stops-here-girl. I completely understand the paramount importance of your words making bank. Because I don’t get up every morning, have my false eyelashes on fleek, and have someone give me a blow-dry before waltzing into my writing space coffee in hand.
I’m a working copywriter and copy coach who in 6 short years has dragged my brand from barely-born to charging out at one of the highest hourly rates for freelance copywriters in Australia. I started with $0 and a borrowed laptop and now I’m invited to speak all over the globe about copy and branding, sales and structure, entrepreneurship and sometimes musical theatre. (Actually, that last point is untrue, I just throw in references for fun.)
My words did that.
Fairly quickly, I found an uncanny knack to teach other people how to make theirs do the same. I’m a natural Mentor/Teacher. Can’t help myself. Instead of keeping it all for my intensive clients, in 2018 I launched a brand new online copywriting class – keeping costs lower than 1:1 training or outsourcing – for those on a budget while still maintaining a ripper level of expert advice and training. And it was the first in Australia to be created solely for women in business and give weekly, individual feedback to every course participant.
I’m Jay Crisp Crow, proud owner of a funny name, Mother to 3 game-changing people, lover of a Viking, and dedicated, life-long word nerd who just adores seeing someone else nail it.
I’ve written website copy, email copy, launch copy, Sales copy, landing pages, advertising copy, more About pages and biographies you can poke a stick at, socials, awards, grants, policy and procedures, headlines, hooks, eBooks and guides, influencer and stockist letters, magazine articles, blogs, reviews, and even wedding vows. You’d be hard pressed to find anything I haven’t written, though I now focus on email and website copy (my specialities are Sales and About pages) and teaching other women how.
I have upwards of 15 biographies ready to send out at a moment’s notice and over 5,000 people have downloaded my Media Kit – half of them, I reckon, just to check out how I pull it together and then replicate it. Clever them.
