Kinwomen was birthed in friendship.

Three friends who loved to aspire together.

Three friends with very different personalities.

Three friends who had worked together for over a decade, ready for something new.

Friendship in women has the capacity to be breathtaking and also deeply wounding.

We wanted to do something to encourage women to help one another.

Who do you have in your world that you could attempt something bold with?

Dreams unrealized?

Problems to be solved?

Imagine if women worked together to help one another, rather than criticize and bring each other down?


Friendship is powerful and scary.

A true friend is one who encourages another to step out and live beyond their limitations. A true friend encourages one another to thrive. A true friend is not threatened by another’s greatness but inspired to live louder because of it.

Kin is started with a very simple journey of three friends.

Join us as we discover new possibilities.
