NOW . IS . THE . TIME .
ENROLMENTS NOW OPEN
A creative and interactive ecourse for curious and entrepreneurial types, exploring your business goals, getting to what is essential, managing competing demands, planning, framing stress, and becoming the master of your time and energy.
SPACE . TIME . THINKING . PLANNING .
You know how you say 'I don't have enough time to work ON my business' or 'I'm too busy to plan!' or 'I'm flat out but don't feel like I'm getting where I want to be'?
Well, this is your opportunity to do something good for yourself and your business, and bring clarity, calm and grace to your working life.
Our most precious resources are our time, energy and mental health. This ecourse is specifically designed to create space to think, plan and prioritise your business goals in the next three - six months.
Think of it as your strategic planning period to get your mind clear on what are your most important priorities coming up, and how you're going to get them done, without the hustle.
Identify the essential from the noise, design your days on purpose, create an achievable personalised plan that makes sense for your version of happiness and success.
Get excited by your business, tap more deeply into your creativity, give life to your ideas and discover new ones, and feel more grounded, focussed and productive with your energy.
Download the noise that's in your head, and upload habits that serve your beliefs and priorities.
By the end of the ecourse you'll walk away with a clear vision for your business and life for the next three - six months. All captured in your very own Clarity Map. And it will be fun, motivating, informative and empowering.
We give you permission to buy those coloured pens, stockpile those post it notes, create a stash of raw chocolate and join an online studio full of whole hearted biz types like you.
NOT . THE . AVERAGE .
This isn't your average goal setting or time management course. We're created this course by drawing on the latest research into positive psychology, resilience, happiness, productivity, mindsets and mindfulness, stress, energy management, character strengths, neurobiology and the progress principle.
With backgrounds in psychology, sociology, communication, entrepreneurship and coaching, we've also tapped into world leading thinkers to create a one of a kind ecourse. This is the course we wished existed for ourselves in our business so we created it for everyone.

WHO IS IT FOR?
You're likely to be (but not exclusively!) a small to medium business owner, with a wholehearted, creative and curious entrepreneurial spirit at your core.
You're craving time and space to think and plan, especially with the new financial year starting.
You're perhaps feeling overwhelmed with the day-to-day juggle of working and living the way you'd like to.
You want to work your way. You're keen on designing your own path.
You've maybe thought about getting a business coach, but wasn't completely sold on the idea. Maybe you've got a bunch of questions and want to hang out with peeps that can answer them. Come learn, engage and plan!
WHAT'S THE FORMAT?
We've designed this course into six bit sized packets that you can dip in and out of:
- We'll walk you through our stepped Of Kin method to create your Clarity Map for the next 90 days
- You'll come out the other side having a clear direction, and clarity (who doesn't need that?)
- You'll have a Habit Map to reference and help manage your time
- And will have practiced doing the do all the way along
From day one you will have access to all 6 Packets. Then each week during the course we'll email you to introduce each packet on the website. Each Packet is made up of videos, text, slides, pdfs, templates and checklists. The feedback on the course material has been amazing, everyone loves the variety of engaging content we are able to provide via online learning. The course is filled to the brim with education, inspiration, ideas, examples, and activities to supercharge your life.
It's up to you to decide how quickly you work through the packets. You could take a day from your daily business routine and try and work through it all - like an offsite planning day. Or you could split it over several days within a week. Or simply follow our emails and jump into each packet when the email arrives - you're the boss!
HOW LONG DO I HAVE TO COMPLETE THE COURSE?
Whilst The Time is structured as a 6 week learning experience, we all know life and work gets in the way. We are also well aware that deadlines are wonderful things to keep us moving forward!
We structure the course as six learning packets, however in reality it may take you eight weeks, or even twelve (no judgement here, we're online learners too and know what it can be like to find some quiet, uninterrupted time to learn).
So here's how it will work.
- We will provide support and responses to comments actively through the 6 week formal course time
- After the wrap-up email is sent out at the conclusion of the 6 packets we will monitor the comments and questions weekly
- We recommend you head on over to our exclusive Of Kin private Facebook group (which you will be invited to join as part of your enrolment package) where we continue discussions, coaching and advice for all of our awesome kin - you'll love it over there.
I just love everything you’re about. Practical, soul nourishing, uplifting and inspiring advice and activities that reignite hope and passion. What a lovely community to be a part of. Thank you.
Mary Mary Studio, Kate, Owner
Loved it thanks so much. I think it provided a lot of food for thoughts and helped me clarify some of my current thoughts about direction. Loved the course so much. It really helped me understand and answer some of the deep questions I’ve been asking myself lately about the direction and focus of my business.
Sonia Lear, Happy Camper Pizza
The Of Kin girls just get it and they deliver it in a way that you will too. Thank you.
Dara Shashona, Director, Byzantine Design
The Of Kin team creates an incredible space to share their passion and enormous amounts of wisdom. Every part flowed with generosity – tools, personal insights and hot tips for further resources. Thanks a million.
Clare Desira, Founder, Top Five Movement
Honestly this couldn’t have been more perfect for me and where I’m at right now.
Leah Anderson, Director, Unicorn Group
There’s so much information out there about time management and productivity it’s overwhelming. This course distills the best of the best so that you don’t have to sift through it all yourself. I love how practical the information is too. I’ve walked away with an action plan and clarity. Thanks so much.
Jacqueline Baulch, Director, Inner Melbourne Clinical Psychology
Thank you to you both, Binny & Kylie. It's such a great way to start the year with your course, helping me put structure to my otherwise random anticipations of the year ahead & reflections on the year now behind me.
Louise Weigall, Style and Substance
This packet was great and not so much eye opening but a gentle slap in the face about priorities. My fabulous partner is always reminding me that I spend way too much time on the non essentials filling myself with busyness and there were moments reading through this packet that I thought maybe he had written it.
Two lessons in and I can already feel the change.
Petrina Turner, Petrina Turner Design
I thought this [I believe] section was difficult but in the end I loved it and felt energised on completion .........so thanks lovely ladies for investing the time in developing it.
I think for me the biggest take away has been to really spell out my priorities . I tend to get lost in the "urgent" rather than the important things that will actually propel me forward to my goals. I spent a lot of last year feeling as though there was a lot of action, but not much progress. Amazing how focusing on my priorities - decluttering my life and our home in particular - has seen so much change and transformative energy flow.
At a time of change and new challenges in my work and family life Kylie & Binny's THE TIME course helped me immensely. It offered tools, insights and tricks to gain clarity and focus, and with that in mind to plan and plot my realistic daily, weekly, monthly rhythms.

Today has inspired me to be more motivated and self controlled within my business.

Amazing day – came away with clear goals and ideas for the next three months – something I’ve never had before.
Meggie, Designer and Owner, Sailor Sam
Such an inspiring course. So many great ideas from Kylie and Bin to plan your business goals, manage time and stay sane!! Love the expertise, passion and quality content presented. Thank you!
Natalie Hayllar, National Account Manager, One Fine Baby
With so many forms of 'busy' cluttering my brain it was a welcomed relief to sit in a room full of hard-working people and find a familiarity and a grounding. The content was relevant, easy to digest, and interesting. It was the affirmation i needed to remember that 'everything is awesome' and Im on track! ...Not to mention some very practical tips to increase my productivity and keep the channels flowin' Thanks so much Kylie and Bin.
I have never had such a clear idea on what I need to do to not only achieve my work and career goals, but how to fit in what truly makes me happy.
Emma Walker, Events, Exhibitions, One Fine Collective
I found the workshop very inspirational. I have walked away feeling very motivated and now have set business goals for the next three months.
Sally Gentle, Owner & Style, May Rose Style
I walked away inspired and with direction which was exactly what I attended the workshop for!
Rowena Clarke, Owner & Photographer, Rosie and Rolf
After just coming out of one of the biggest burnouts and lows I’ve ever experience, the timing of this course was too good to be true (it’s funny how the universe works). Kylie and Belinda excel at delivering savvy content that hits home and reminds you that at the heart of business there needs to be a happy and well rested entrepreneur. In one day they have given me tools to plan, create and set my business up so I don’t run myself into the ground again.
Sara Dobson, Founder and Designer, Purdy in Bloom
As a small business I didn’t think this would be useful but I was wrong – I learnt so much more than anticipated and can’t wait to put in practice Kylie and Belinda’s techniques.
Theona Draganis, Marketing Manager, Classic Treats Ice Cream
An awesome experience overall and I would definitely be back for more. Exceptional!
Erin Macdonald, Owner & Photographer, Canary Photographics
You have provided the clarity and reaffirmed the direction I am heading is what’s true to my branding – and you did so in such an authentic and inspiring way. Feeling motivated!
Mel Webster, Interior Designer, Stylist, Home Label, The Gather Collective
The workshop was so uplifting and inspiring. I learned so much in just one day and have come away with a whole ‘toolkit’ of ideas and new skill. The speakers were passionate and awesome in general!
Sharelle Johnson, National Accounts Manager, One Fine Day
Today was one of the most helpful and informative workshops I’ve had the pleasure of attending. Well worthwhile and very interactive.
Ben Fox, Director, Guitarist and Vocalist, Duke The Band
An amazing workshop that reignited passion and creativity in me. Helped me to focus my plans and ideas
Natalie, Marketing and PR Manager, BridesmaidsOnly.com.au
The Time workshop was invaluable. You are guided through business and wellbeing topics with exercises along the way to help you articulate for yourself where you'd like to take your business and what you would like to achieve.
This workshop came at a critical time for me – it enabled me to get the space I needed to focus not just on my business, but also on making the most of my life. Thank you!
Elise Heslop, Director, Plyroom
A truly fresh and innovative day giving me some space to breathe and get clarity on my business and personal goals. I feel motivated and eager to get back to it and be productive.
Fiona Savaris Owner, Acorn Kids
Kylie and Bin are both so lovely. They emphasised simplicity, mindfulness and self awareness, along with tapping into feelings and beliefs, planning for the next few months and prioritising tasks - which was all a great reminder for me.
Nhung Vo Founder, The Sunday
The Time workshop was a magnificent combo of personal development and business planning & development. Who we are is such a critical part of what our business is and how we operate, so this workshop really helped me connect these.
