Ways to experience more joy in your XO life

Connect deeply with those you love

This is what I’m calling an [Inspo] episode. I’ll be doing more of these types of episodes but this one is special. Not just because it’s the first one, but also because I get to interview … my daughter. If you haven’t listened to the story of how she started writing her novel, and how I redefined success for myself, go ahead and check that out.

In this episode, we talk about Kaiya’s writing process, her motivation, her actual fantasy fiction novel and what she learned along the way.

To get a copy of Kaiya’s book, it’s called The Shifters. It’s available on Amazon in your home country. Here are the links for Canada and the USA.

If you’re a parent wanting to support your child’s big dreams, be sure to listen to the interview with my kids’ favourite author and role model, Coco Ma. And not to mention my episode on becoming a Connected Parent.

Hi, I'm Rishma.
Your BFF + New
Life Strategist.

I ran a thriving healthcare practice as a Naturopathic Doctor and Acupuncturist for over 20 years. I also earned my PhD and spent time in academic research and teaching positions. Now, I read scientific studies because I'm passionate about personal growth. I use the insights to help me, and our community, live our own XO life.
