904: Kristina Paider – Live Life Like a Movie: The Hollywood Approach

Have you ever thought that your life was like a movie? Have you had someone suggest you write a book, implying that your life is as dramatic as a novel? What if you could harness that idea as a tool to script the life you genuinely desire? This is the core of the Holllywood Approach by the brilliant Kristina Paider. Kristina and I discuss the art of crafting a one-line structure for your life story, using storytelling techniques and the hero's journey as tools for personal growth and self-discovery. Kristina offers a creative and practical approach to scripting our lives, setting meaningful goals, and achieving personal and professional success. Join us and discover how to shape your life's narrative and business journey.

Kristina Paider – “KP” – is a world-class storyteller and best-selling author. Her book and workshops, The Hollywood Approach, helps people accelerate results in their business and life. KP’s executive track record includes overseeing the marketing and research for a $15 billion-dollar global hotel company while moonlighting as a screenwriter. She travels by motorcycle, jumps into waterfalls and is a guest chocolate chef, based in the Dominican Republic.
