Be the Hero of Your Own Story“When we address flaws & obstacles in business, that’s the magic spot where we start to connect with people”

How can we become the heroes of our own stories? Whether we’re thinking about our businesses or ourselves, a little movie inspiration goes a long way. Kristina Paider, Chief Creative Officer and author of The Hollywood Approach shows us how we can use movie magic to make our wildest dreams a reality.

Kristina uses her wisdom as a story strategist and screenwriter to apply the principles of Hollywood stories to real life. She encourages everyone to “boss up and be the screenwriter of your show.” By channeling your resources, exploring your character DNA, finding your strengths, and learning from mentors, you can achieve great things. This applies to businesses looking to level-up their company as much as it does to individuals.

As Kristina discusses in this episode of Social Pros, you must move away from perfectionism – and instead, embrace your strengths AND flaws to become the hero of your own story.
