The Business of Storytelling: Finding Wonder and Purpose in Your Work

The passion of art often gets lost in the business world… but when we work from a place of passion, creativity, and wonderment, we can make a magical impact on people.

“Wonder” is defined as a feeling of surprise mingled with admiration, caused my something beautiful, unexpected, unfamiliar, or inexplicable. Here at Bippity Boppity Business, we believe that if you can hold onto the feelings of wonder you once experienced in childhood, you’ll be more likely to create something meaningful and impactful as an adult.

Having started his animation career for the Walt Disney Studios, this week’s guest has a unique background of infusing wonder into his work. 

Listen in as Rita welcomes Saul Blinkoff, legendary animator and filmmaker, to have a magical discussion about the power of wonderment in business and the skills/mindsets you need to pursue your most wondrous ideas.

In this episode, Saul and Rita discuss:

  • How Saul became an animator and filmmaker for Disney, Netflix, MTV, and more.
  • How to infuse a sense of wonder in your art or business.
  • The secret to being confident in your career and achieving the “impossible”.
  • How to turn your weaknesses into your strengths.
  • Saul’s best advice for aspiring animators, entrepreneurs, and creators of all kinds.
  • The #1 thing you need to be a successful leader, according to Saul Blinkoff.
