Hah, I’m a “Quora Celebrity”! Nice! That and $5 gets me a cup of coffee 😉
I have no PR team and I absolutely write all my answers.
My bio is written that way because I already had an “official bio” that I use as a public speaker/advisor/author/etc (which I drafted but was indeed polished by multiple marketing/PR people along the way.)
I have since altered it to add updates and links, and even removed parts when I added in the video – as it made some parts redundant.
Honestly, as there is no “best practice” on a Quora Profile page, I chose to put my bio there (which I think nicely covers my breadth of expertise.) There *does* happen to be a best practice on speaker/author bios, which is to use the Third Person, so, there you have it.
