MEET OUR FOUNDER

permission to be real, granted

Hi, I’m Kelly.

I’m not perfect, but I’m real. I am a mom, a wife, a friend, a mentor, and a businesswoman. I’m an incest survivor. I’m a Reiki master, minister, and a healer. Sometimes, I drink too much. I yell at my kids (I really try to minimize this one!).

These experiences are all a part of me—the good, the bad, and the fugly.

I am messy, I’m genuine, and I’m perfectly imperfect. And now that you’re here with me, I hope that you’ll feel free to share your own perfectly imperfect self.

Permission to be real: granted.

Guess what? I recently wrote my first book, The Messy Truth, which will be published by Enrealment Press in the fall of 2017. In the next year, I’ll be rolling out a bunch of exclusive offerings for the people in my tribe, all of which are meant to help you fully and deeply embrace who you are—warts and all.

Want to get messy with me?

Let me inspire you to take action on the regular. Plus, I’ll tell you Why I Love My Fat, and other messy truths.

How I share my messy brilliance.

I write.

I have a lot of thoughts about a lot of things. Check out some of my favorite pieces here and see if you relate.

I mentioned my book, The Messy Truth, above. I’m all about messy. I believe that the “truth” of who we are and what we are capable of lives in our messiness. Messiness has negative connotations in our culture—after all, “hot mess” is hardly a compliment—but to me, it signifies a person’s wholeness.

As women, we beat ourselves up for being too emotional, too chaotic, too much of everything that actually makes us the powerful, creative, brilliant people we are! My book is something of a love song to the “feminine.” The things we believe make us imperfect or not enough are actually the places where our highest potential for joy and creativity lives. And that kind of mess is hot.

To find out more and to get updates on my book, as well as upcoming courses and workshops, sign up for my personal mailing list above.

I speak.

I’m a speaker and workshop facilitator. Everything I talk about boils down to helping women reclaim their voices so they can live life unapologetically and on their own terms. If you want a taste, check out the interviews I’ve been featured in here.

In addition, you can check out interviews I’ve conducted with my favorite thought leaders and changemakers.

I would love to speak at your next event. Let me know your needs by emailing me at info@womenforone.com.

I mentor and nurture.

Most of all, I pour my time into creating toolkits and courses for bold and powerful women who want to make a difference, make life happen, and act on their dreams.

For a list of products that I’ve developed, click here. And, you can reach out to me personally to explore my services at info@womenforone.com.

I welcome your story.

I get asked every day, “Is this a place for liberals?” “Is this a place for God, or for Goddess?” “Is this a place for pro-lifers like me?”

Here’s my answer: No. And yes. And both. (And not in any order.)

No matter who you are, I believe that you have a story to share that will benefit another person.

Even if I completely disagree with everything you stand for, your story is welcome here.

That means we can all expect to run into some types we wouldn’t hang out with. But maybe that’s what our world needs right now.

Please remember: this isn’t a place for political argument, or what’s right and what’s wrong. It’s a place to share your story, and connect with someone else’s.
