An entrepreneur

Hi! I’m Riva

an entrepreneur, life coach, and author of fifteen bestselling books.
I’m also a frum woman and the lucky mother of seven beautiful kids, baruch Hashem.


Behind Skillnosh

As a birthday gift, I got a subscription to a well-known learning platform and I enthusiastically dived into a course from a celebrated chef. But I couldn’t even make it through the first five minutes because every other word out of his mouth was obscene. Got me thinking: why not give quality content without the junk?

 Covid struck and the whole world suddenly discovered how much could be done from the comfort and safety of our very own living rooms. E-learning exploded. “Zoom” became a household word. As we all “pivoted”, possibilities came to the fore. I began offering more writing courses and workshops. Something was coming together in my mind. Something big.

After scrapping three prototypes, endless hours of consulting, brainstorming, planning, designing, and collaboration, Skillnosh was finally born. I’m beyond excited about this incredible opportunity to change the lives of both course takers and course makers. The frum world deserves quality brain food without the junk. So start noshing today!
