The Kindred & Co. blog is here for you - resources & rhythms to practice being and doing; stories from us & the community in our pursuit of living as human beings; business behind the scenes (BTS) announcements & celebrations.
My my desire would be that you would be inspired to seek hope this holiday season. Maybe hearing these small businesses’ stories of hope would allow you space to understand where you have experienced hope or where you want to pursue hope.
At the most simplest, it has been, and continues to be, challenging.
On physical, emotional, and mental levels that are both simultaneous and distinct in their own ways. Let me explain.
With the big change coming, and with Kindred & Co. a mostly one-woman show (albeit there is a lot of support and help beyond myself), there will be some necessary changes to ensure healthy boundaries for myself and family, and that the business continues to operate smoothly!
All of these will be quick and laid out in the Maternity-leave specific section of the FAQ page, so if you prefer that, you can head there now. However, I have also laid out a little more the thoughts behind each decision here, as well as overall expectations you can have from me/Kindred & Co.
If Kindred & Co. is a company about encouraging women to pursue a life of wholehearted intention and abundant joy, then that means choosing to make decisions and live in postures that allow for that to happen. Which means, the comparison lists I’m tempted to make, do not belong.
We don’t have all the skills and knowledge just yet, we are only 6 months old, but we did want to share with you what we do know and what we have found to be incredibly helpful as we carry forward. Hopefully at least one or two of the things we share will be helpful to you as well! This is our small business resource round-up, the tools, apps, and third party sites we use to help keep our business organized, mission focused, and beautiful.
While all of it was true and I wouldn’t take back or change any of my words, I do want to take time now, on the six monthaversary (I made that up and spellcheck isn’t pleased) to share the joyous lessons I’ve been learning and the celebrations that have happened along the way. Not to be boastful, but to help me take pause to celebrate, be grateful, and show you all how integral you’ve been in this journey.
“Being a small business owner means you are the accountant, the marketing manager, the sales rep, the social media strategist, the content creator, the product manager, the customer service concierge, the intern, the CEO, the CFO, and the janitor.”
At the end of every month we write a reflection blog post that correlates with the reflection questions in the Kindred Planner.
Consider this your invitation to reflect along with us, coffee (or tea) in one hand and Kindred Planner (or journal) in the other.
Your worth, who you are and who you are becoming are so important to the heart of Kindred & Co. that we put together a series of blog posts to help you practice being.
Sweet like honey are the encouraging stories you'll find here.
Read the stories from our community gathered here! Some stories of K&Co. products, yes, but more important, stories of how they are living as human beings, finding their identity first and foremost in their inherent worth.
From the moments that have shaped Kindred & Co. to the big dreams seen fulfilled to the best roundup of YOUR kindred stories, here are our favorites posts.
