What is the Kochfidential?
Real and raw insights on work, life, family and beyond.
Hi! So lovely to connect with you. I’m Kendra, founder and editor of The Kochfidential, a place on the web where I share insights, tools and systems to help you live a calmer, better life.
A little about me:
I’ve worked as a marketer and content strategist for nearly a dozen Silicon Valley startups—many of which I helped bring to exit. I also express myself creatively through writing and acting, and like to do mini-life experiments—some of which I’ll share here with you.
I’m a deeply curious and a natural problem solver. I love to ask experts, dig into research, read forums, and browse reviews to find the best solutions available today. I’ll share some of my discoveries with you here.
I love personal development, but I’m frustrated that most of the popular information out there is unrealistic or unhelpful for women and parents. Here I’ll share what I’ve found does work for people (like me) who have a lot of life complexity and responsibilities to manage outside of their career.
I experience inattentive-type ADHD and chronic migraines which have forced me to get really good at developing systems: I need them to stay healthy and on track. While I’ve adopted these strategies to address my personal health challenges, they’re helpful for anyone who wants to be healthier, more organized, or get more done in the day—yes, including you!
What I believe:
Health is more than just physical. A truly healthy person is fit in all of these areas:
mental and emotional
interpersonal and relationships
creative expression and work
People are dynamic. We can be and do more than one thing over a lifetime. Most modern self-help and “personal branding” advice doesn’t leave room for us to be our full selves—I’m here to change that.
We are overfed and undernourished in all areas of our lives: from unlimited access to packaged foods with little nutritional value, to an abundance of information that we can’t accurately filter or vet.
We’re all trying to do our best, yet trying harder isn’t enough. Sometimes we need to adopt systems, implement tools, outsource, or learn another way. You can find some of those options here.
I hope that helps you understand me, and what I can offer to you in this newsletter. My hope is to provide anecdotes alongside actionable advice that you can apply in real time to get meaningful results.
