10 Things I Don’t Know About You

Whenever I’m working with a new client, I love to ask a simple question:

Tell me 10 things I don’t know about you.

When I ask, there’s always a pause.  Clients want to know why I want to know. The answer is always the same. Because, it makes you different, it makes you, you — and no one else, that’s why.

Now, there’s typically some resistance, but I want it to be a creative experience for them. And, to be honest, I love reading about what people don’t put ‘out there’ for the public to see. There’s also another reason — it makes for interesting bio and signature material (and so much more).

If I had to tell you  five things you (probably) don’t know about me, they might be:

  • I stayed up all night long as a little girl trying to earn the most Girl Scout badges because the deadline was the next day
  • I got lost in a white out in the Italian Alps with my mother and a group of her friends and luckily found a mountainside tavern – for a shot of grappa
  • I owned a metallic green Checker Cab with opera windows, which I loved beyond words
  • I was stranded in a snow storm for days and had to be picked up by a doctor with Emergency clearance
  • I had a restaurant lobby stand in Boston’s Chinatown and called it Robbie’s Lobby. I remember it well and not just for the line down Kneeland Street for the fish chowder on Friday’s!

All of this might not mean a hill of beans to you — except that it might make you think about your own life and what you may have forgotten or what may be interesting to other people — to sprinkle in stories, bios, speeches, profiles and conversations when you are engaging others.

What we do in our lives makes us human! And fun! And not so boring, in case you think you lead a boring life.  Moi? Not a chance.

Your Turn

What are a few things that I don’t know about you?

Are your accomplishments ho hum really, or are you just shy? Toot your own horn here!

If you don’t own your greatness, then for goodness sakes, who will!?

    1) I am lucky to keep college friends in my heart.
    2) While flying into Bhutan over the Himalayas the plane developed a cracked windshield. The pilot descended to the lowest possible altitude so he would not be sucked out of the plane to return us safely to Thailand .
    3) I compete as a senior in equestrian jumping events; cross country and stadium jumping events.
    4) I have been married over 30 years to an awesome friend who supports my equine pursuits.
    5) I work at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts and when I am physically unable to compete will become a full time docent.
    6) My husband and I are lucky to travel extensively which enrich our lives.
    7) Even with our, and their, imperfections we love our children.
