The Kinfolk Entrepreneur – Ideas for meaningful work

By Nathan Williams

Workman

 

Kinfolk was created by Nathan Williams, his wife Katie Searle-Williams and their friends Doug and Paige Bischoff in July 2011.

Primarily a lifestyle magazine aimed at young professionals, it focuses on home, work, play, food and community through photo essays, recipes, interviews, profiles, personal stories and practical tips.

The writers, photographers, designers and chefs who contribute to Kinfolk are drawn from a largely international pool of creative people, often featuring more than 50 individual contributors an issue.

Released quarterly, each issue is themed around a topic that is related to the season it is being published in, with all food, entertaining and lifestyle content geared towards that theme.

Sample articles include interviews with well-known chefs, sample themed menus with accompanying recipes, illustrated guides to daily encounters and inspirational photo essays encouraging readers to try new activities.

Apart from its magazine, Kinfolk has become a leading lifestyle authority with a dynamic mix of print and online media, including daily posts on Kinfolk.com, bestselling books, plus international events and a gallery space in the heart of Copenhagen.

Encouraging its readers to live a self-contained, slow lifestyle, reconnect with the earth, shun technology where possible and drive a bit less – it fast became a bible for an alternative aspirationalism based around distressed furnishing, the perfect coffee cup and a tad more mindfulness and style in your everyday life.

With their newest emission, i.e. The Kinfolk Entrepreneur,

Ideas for Meaningful Work, they present an international perspective on creative business and let us join Nathan Williams and the Kinfolk team as they visit more than 40 creative entrepreneurs from around the world who are making business personal.

The carefully curated book with its clean design and photographic aesthetic explores how visionary ideas take root and ripen into careers, and the myriad ways in which the pursuit of meaning and passion, and the experiences of disappointment and defeat, can motivate both professional success and a balanced quality of life.

Through insightful interviews with leaders in the worlds of publishing, architecture, fashion, design and beyond, The Kinfolk Entrepreneur captures the ambitions and realities of today’s creative class and offers tips, advice and inspiration for anyone looking to forge their own entrepreneurial path in life.
