On Marketplace, one of my favorite NPR shows, host Kai Ryssdal often asks his guests to describe what they do in 6 words or less.

This is a great exercise so you’re prepared not just for radio interviews but for that moment that could happen anywhere that could change everything.

If you can be captivating in 6 words, who wouldn’t want to hire you? Here’s mine: Triple your business with media appearances. What’s yours?

Ernest Hemingway inspired the “say it in 6 words” with his famous short story that is poignant and brief: For sale: Baby shoes, never worn.

Then Smith Magazine picked it up and turned it into a craze.

Enjoy the book that started it all: It All Changed in an Instant: More Six-Word Memoirs by Writers Famous & Obscure

Take a look at these Lovely vintage-y illustrated mini-memoirs.

 

It’s amazing how much you can get said in 6 words.

Write your mini-memoir or describe what you do in 6 words.

Go ahead. Try your hand at it….
