10 questions with Kikki. K founder Kristina Karlsson

Kristina Karlsson, the founder and creative director of global Swedish design and stationery business Kikki.K, looks up to many notable personalities such as Arianna Huffington, Oprah Winfrey, and Richard Branson. To meet her biggest dream yet -- which is to inspire and empower 101 million people the world over to dream their own dreams -- she featured the stories of these successful people in her debut book: Your Dream Life Starts Here.

“Most adults lose their natural child-like ability to dream without limitation, instead progressing through life with aspirations or wishes, limited by false personal beliefs of what is possible for ‘someone like me’,” shares Kristina. To change this, her book includes exercises which encourage people to tune into their own passions and curiosities, and develop clear action plans to take control of their lives.

But what about Kristina herself? To get to know her better, we conducted a fun Q&A session with her. Watch the video below:

Want to take this further? Use the complementary Dream Life Journal, which is an essential workbook of sorts that features corresponding chapters to the main book. 

Every purchase of Karlsson’s book will see a US$1 donated to Tererai Trent International - a foundation established by Dr Tererai Trent, Oprah Winfrey’s ‘all-time favourite guest’. Funds raised will build on the generous foundational support Trent received from Oprah Winfrey and support her dream to provide universal access to quality education for children, regardless of their gender or socio-economic backgrounds.

Kristina Karlsson’s Your Dream Life Starts Here book will be available at Kikki.K ION, kikki.K Raffles City, kikki.K Vivocity and online at www.kikki-k.com.
