Nathan Williams' authentic understanding of what people are seeking in their lives led to his Kinfolk magazine becoming today's most popular indie lifestyle journal, with more social media followers on Instagram and Facebook than any other lifestyle brand. As a creative and successful young entrepreneur himself, this book was the natural successor to The Kinfolk Table and The Kinfolk Home, and has the same sure touch.
In The Kinfolk Entrepreneur, author Nathan Williams introduces readers to 35 creative business owners around the globe, offering an inspiring, in-depth look behind the scenes of their lives and their companies. Pairing insightful interviews with striking images of these men and women and their workspaces, The Kinfolk Entrepreneur makes business personal. The book profiles both budding and experienced entrepreneurs across a broad range of industries (from fashion designers to hoteliers) in cities across the globe (from Copenhagen to Dubai to Tasmania). Readers will learn how today's industry leaders handle both their successes and failures, achieve work-life balance, find motivation in the face of adversity, and so much more.
Meet Nathan Williams Canadian Nathan Williams worked as an analyst for Goldman Sachs while establishing Kinfolk magazine with friends in Portland, Oregon, launched in 2011 as a tiny lifestyle magazine focussed on the idea of slow living. A rapid rise sees the now 33-year old based in Copenhagen with a team, a publishing arm, Ourr studio (artshop stocks all the books: The Kinfolk Table, The Kinfolk Home, and The Kinfolk Entrepreneur) and the original runaway success, Kinfolk quarterly magazine with a circulation of 90,000. Kinfolk maintains a vibrant contributor base from Copenhagen to Cape Town and hosts hundreds of global events each year that bring the community together. Still true to the original slow-living ethos, he describes that as, "Slow living not so much in the way of kicking back and hammocks with cocktails, but more taking the time to really think about what you want to be doing and what feels most beneficial, which is a fairly subjective way of thinking."
