About Caroline Mays

Caroline MaysFull Disclosure: Caroline is the genius behind the “Shed The Formality” message, about and services pages – for companies and women – on this website. She’s also an all around incredible human being.

Caroline insists that the average “this is me” paragraph is a personality killer and creative wasteland. But the stories that made us are robust, complicated and deserving of our attention, containing all the necessary materials for a bold personal brand.

Clients rely on her genius to unleash true, focused, compelling biographical art that sells their work, instead of uninspired and predictable content that sells them short.

I mean, are you hooked yet?
