StoryHinge | podcast, stories, personal, growth, self help, happiness, leadership

We are about learning and growth through personal stories from a diverse spectrum of people. We believe in stories. We believe that stories are a powerful way to both learn and teach. We want to encourage people to develop, own, find more meaning, leverage, forge meaning if necessary and share their personal story. We also believe there is great value in hearing other people's stories. We believe that exploring foundational ideas and beliefs through diverse personal stories is instrumental in order to discover more meaningful paths, greater happiness, and accelerated growth in one’s life.

This episode starts us off into season 2 of Storyhinge. In this episode I, Jason Vidaurri, spend time with my brother, Vincent Vidaurri, to discuss stories. We spent several months researching stories and reading multiple books about story, story creation and storytellers. We explore into questions such as: What is a story? What are the elements that make a story? What makes a good story? Why are stories important in our lives? Why are storytellers important? What is the future of stories?

Georgian Benta is the founder and host of The Gratitude Podcast, the #1 Positive Thinking Podcast on iTunes, with over 100,000 downloads. He started this journey because, like Tony Robbins says: "Success without fulfilment is the ultimate failure." He interviews people that are living with gratitude, to find out their stories and what they do in order to keep themselves grateful most of the time. He read probably all of the research on gratitude and created 60+ episodes for his listeners with the main ideas, in his quest to apply gratitude as much as possible in his own life but also to inspire others to do the same.

Elliott was married for 10 years. Like a lot of men, he thought he was a good husband and father. Then he got divorced. At first he blamed the other person and then he asked himself: What do I have to learn from all this? How do I have to learn and grow from this experience? I don't want to go through this again.

 

That was the moment, he knew he had to change. The journey that resulted from it has been one of growth. He is now changing the men of the world by sharing what he learned. The fascinating thing is that the world is open to it. His book has been translated into 24 languages in Europe, Asia, Latin America and Africa.

Kim Interdonato lives in Long Island, New York . She is 46 years old ( ugh thank god I do not feel or act it ) and is a single mom. She has a cool energetic 8 year old son. She was a competitive figure skater as well as being a skating instructor for over 25 years. Currently, she mainly teaches power skating / hockey. She absolutely loves her job. She wrote SHOES ARE LIKE MEN after a breakup and was very down about my dating and life. One day after a lunch with a girlfriend she told her to look at my dating like trying on shoes. With that spark Kim took a long drive to the Hamptons and came up with the concept for the book. Now she is nearing her 2nd book that will be out in a few months called HEELS & HOCKEY SKATES. In it she captures a female's perspective working in the male dominated sport of hockey.

At the age of twelve Max and his family moved to the USA from Brazil seeking a better life on the land of opportunity.  It did not take them too long to realize that the American dream differs from the American reality..  A few months after Max moved to the US, he lost his vision due to Retinitis Pigmentosa which is  an eye condition that affects 0.025% of the US population.  With no sight and no language, he had to work three times harder than everyone else. Not only that, but he had to deal with the system that did and still does an unimaginable injustice to individuals with disabilities.  It is very easy for anyone to quit at any given time. Max could have given up and simply quit. He could have, but he did not. He preferred to struggle and strive.

 

With his passion and love to help others  and serve humanity, he obtained a Bachelor’s  degree in psychology and a Master’s  in social work.  As an intern he worked with both  of the local and international communities during his five years of service in the mental health field.  Most importantly, Maximiliano Campos is the host

and creator of the Blind Hour Podcast.  A show created to advocate for the rights of individuals with visual disabilities, and educate people through  his humorous and genuine approach  to day to day life. In addition to the podcast,  Maximiliano Campos is working towards other projects through which he aims to empower the disabled community by helping  its members see their ability to break the barriers that block their ways, as well as  encouraging these individuals to defy social and cultural expectations.
