Why do we use 'busy' so loosely in our personal and business lives? It's become a badge of honour to define how much we are doing and a validation of doing a good job - but are we busy doing the right things? What if we could reframe 'busy' and be at peace with not being busy?
This is a must do intimate workshop for anyone with a small business (active or in planning mode) or parents at the control centre of their home management. Learn how to get the gift of time from Kirsty's wealth of experience by chatting through tools and tips for outsourcing.

Vendor since 2017
Come along to our workshops and meet-ups and learn a skill (or brush up on old ones), talk about what you love, meet new people and spend time focusing on something other than child-rearing. Our broad range of workshops and events are eclectic and stimulating. Midweek events include an on-site creche!
Kin & Kind is about exciting the passion you once had but have lost in the fog of babies, kids and home, in a safe and supportive environment. We want you to leave feeling energised, with a sense of achievement that’s unrelated to the kids.
At the very least, you're 90 minutes closer to nap time.
