Kinwomen is a network, not an organisation or a business, just a gathering of women who want to do life well and be able to claim honestly, ‘no regrets’. The network is women only – bringing together women of all ages, cultures, education, abilities and passions to share life and wisdom.
MAXIMUS & LIBERTY
Amanda is the co-founder of Maximus & Liberty. It is a not for profit surf brand that exists to support youth surfing projects around the globe.
SECRETS IN THE BAY
Is a local community creative photography social media brand, started by Amanda and her local friends. The whole point of the network is to brag about what is beautiful in their local area. Some of their photos and posts have gone to over 100,000 followers
We all need a tribe, a gang, a network, a possie, a gathering and inspiration of women. Last October a group of women retreated together and it birthed the most amazing community of creative women called the inspire collective.
Your story is important
Somebody needs your story. We each have a story to tell and Amanda loves to help women tell and write their stories. Through books, workshops and speaking engagements, she is on a quest to help every woman find their voice through writing, courage and confidence. She believes that you have something to say and that someone, somewhere needs your story for their own journey. Come and attend one of her workshops today or download her latest books to help you find your voice, develop confidence in writing and discover why creativity is powerful.
I am Enough

An overwhelming shame sits waiting in the wings of my motherhood parade.

Empathy comes and goes from my daily life, and it is often frustrated by stories that keep me in old holding patterns.

Last night after a speaking engagement I stopped a lady and said: “Excuse me, I have I met you before?”. My heart and life were immersed in her eyes and I couldn’t shake the feeling that we had encountered each other profoundly. She said to me I’m a midwife and my knees buckled slightly. I Read more about In Her Eyes[…]
Without even thinking I typed fast sourdough recipe into google.
