On May 30, 2013 I had the pleasure of being interviewed by Miriam Khalladi. Miriam started a video series on YouTube where she interviews inspirational women from all walks of life, many involved in different parts of the fitness industry. Here is my interview below:
Later this year she decided to take her video series one step further and gather 100 women to write a book together. It is a compilation and culmination of our lessons learned in one book.
It is broken out into several volumes. Volume 1 is about Loving Yourself, Volume 2 is about Never Giving Up, Volume 3 is about Achieving Success, Volume 4 is about Finding Balance and Volume 5 is about Making A Difference. The book is available in it’s digital edition today ($19.85) and the print edition will be released on December 14th! You can go here to view the website and purchase the book if you’re already excited to read it!
When Miriam asked me to write a chapter I re-watched my video interview with her to get inspiration for what to write about. During our interview, I talked about broken heel moments and failures in my life and what to do when they happen and how they can be blessings in our lives.
I chose to write about 10 things, habits and coping methods you can do to get through a failure moment in your life.
Miriam has graciously given the authors copies to give away. I would love to gift 5 of my readers with a copy. There are 3 simple ways to enter below in the widget:

my broken heel moment revolves around what city/province/country i should be living in, and a huge aspect of the decision is fear. your chapter will be super helpful 😉
Nice Work R!
Great interview, Robyn! You are so well spoken. It was great to hear a bit more about the motivation behind your choices.
A broken heel moment? I think it’s been a good five years since I last wore heels :), but mine would be finding a good work/life balance now as a new mom. Recently I have cut back a lot on commitments so that I can reduce the amount of stress in my life. As you say in your interview, being a mom can be a full time job on its own. I want to keep writing for many reasons, but I have needed to say ‘no’ many times in the past month. I’d be keen to read the stories of inspiring women to help me as I navigate this next phase of my life. Other women have always been my greatest teachers.
Right now we just moved back to Toronto and I’m looking for a marketing/CPG position. It’s been a little tougher than I thought and I could use some motivation.
