Congratulations to the five lucky winners of the Extreme Bio Makeover as a result of the Done for You Giveaway Sweepstakes of the Century:

– Charlotte Marshall, Aim Higher Coaching
– Victoria Cook, The Guilt Free Coach
– Sharon Day, Miabella Design Group
– Erika Kalmar, Career Wellness Coach
– Dawn Martinello, Monday Morning VA

I am looking forward to working with all the winners.

Since the contest launched May 17, 2010, 798 people entered to win the Extreme Bio Makeovers.  That tells me that there are a lot of people who are fed up with their boring bios, fired up and ready to do something about them.

If the timing is right to get into action now, you know it. If the  Done for You approach resonates for you, get in touch to schedule YOUR Extreme Bio Makeover today.  If you love to do things yourself, treat yourself to the Bye-Bye Boring Bio Action Guide.   Either way, you get what you need, and you'll be beaming with pride as you invite more clients, more media attention, or both to your business.

Speaking of which, I received this wonderful email today from a Bye-Bye Boring Action Guide customer that makes me beam with pride.

Hi Nancy,

…  One thing I'd like to say is that your book is helping me to not only change the way I think about presenting myself in my bio but also in all of our marketing and PR materials. My husband and I own Red Paper Clip , and we find that it's easy to write about other people's businesses with fun, funky copy that takes them from being just another price point to consider to being a business that people are STOKED to work with. However, it's much more difficult to do that for yourself…

Your book was recommended to us by Tad Hargrave, who Red Paper Clip hired for a one-on-one marketing session over the weekend. Tad is absolutely awesome, and when he recommends something, we trust him. However, when I visited your website, I checked out some of the other people who had given you testimonials, just to see what their bios look like and how the book has worked for them. One stood out in particular, and that was Kelly Watson of One Woman Marketing. I clicked on the link to her website, and was really impressed by what I saw. So, Tad gave us the referral to you, and Kelly helped seal the deal. I bought the book immediately.

I'm already on a roll with my bio, and once I'm finished, I would be happy to send it to you along with a testimonial for you to share on your website. And, if (or, as is more likely the case, when) we ever need a one-on-one PR session, I'll know who to call.

Thanks a bunch!
