Today I am thrilled to welcome Christine Maggiore-Escribano to Mojo Mondays Bootcamp. Chris is the Senior Vice President and Head of One Platform Marketing, Advertising & Partnerships at NBCUniversal. From college dropout to self proclaimed “polka-dotted unicorn who finally found her tribe”, Chris’ journey is a testament to the power of reinvention.
Listen and learn about how she evolved from accidental marketer to intentional executive, why she believes failure is the best teacher, and why we need to embrace our imperfections.
Here are my top three takeaways from my conversation with Chris:
Embrace your polka-dots. Chris talks about how she once perceived her uniqueness as a negative, but was able to embrace her “polka-dots”. By seeing her differences as superpowers, she finds herself attracting people who want to learn from each other and build a tribe of unique individuals.
Don’t filter out your failures. Failure is the greatest teacher, it’s how we learn. Chris urges us to take accountability for our failures and own the steps we need to take to become who we want to be.
Fight for yourself. Chris received feedback that woke her up to ways she was holding herself back. She realized that she needed to fight for herself, and contribute to her own greatness as much as she contributed to others.
