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.

Some people call him brave, some call him mad.  To face the thin air at high altitude takes a bit of both, but to Nigel Vardy, there is nothing like being on a high mountain.  Losing limbs to severe frostbite would put off all but the few, but to Nigel it was the springboard to climb, achieve and conquer.

Over the past 20 years he has climbed across the world, set mountaineering records and spoken to schools and businesses across Europe. He continues on life's adventure, forcing new boundaries and new experiences every day of his life...

As Nigel says - "I don't want to die in an unused body…”

Jen Grisanti’s career shifted in 1992.  Her story begins the way yours might; by working with someone who truly believed in her. She assisted and was mentored by Aaron Spelling, one of the greatest executives and most prolific producers in the business.  She learned early on how to develop a story and make a script the best it could be before it hit the air. She worked with the executive producers, showrunners and staff of over 15 primetime shows. She had the unique opportunity to give script notes on a daily basis and see them implemented weekly on shows like 90210, Melrose Place, Charmed, Medium, Numbers, NCIS, The 4400 and Girlfriends. She was near the pinnacle of her career, her path, her dream in 2004 when she became Vice President of Current Programs.   But like many of us have experienced a life changed, within a few years her career path would unexpectedly shift again. In January 2008, Jen launched Jen Grisanti Consultancy Inc., a highly successful consulting firm dedicated to helping talented writers break into the industry. Today Jen is an International speaker and an acclaimed Story/Career consultant where she has helped hundreds of writers shape their material, hone their pitches and focus their careers.  She is also an author of multiple books including her most recent one called Change Your Story, Change Your Life: A Path To Your Success.

David JP Phillips was raised in a small town in Sweden. Upon coming to adulthood David realized that he did not the traditional paths and chose a new path, the path of creating a new way of educating mankind in presentation skills from a biological aspect. He started saving for his first EEG (Electroencephalograph) machine so that he could read his own sinus curves on a monitor, curious to see how his brain reacted in different situations. That planted the first seed in what would become one of Sweden’s biggest companies in Presentation skills and Communication. Today, he educates people in what many fear the most, even more than death itself. That is, to stand in front of an audience and deliver a presentation. Within his company, they teach people how to become extraordinary in Presentation skills, Sales and Leadership using our own unique formula.
