Live a big Happy Life
Author, Entrepreneur & Founder of Kapalua Cove Foundation
THE REAL HAPPY PARENT PODCAST
THIS IS MY STORY
I'm Kim Linette! I am a mother to six wonderful kids and I’m passionate about helping children from all walks of life—especially children in emotionally unhealthy environments.
An entrepreneur at heart, I created a multi-faceted initiative to empower children—and in turn, their parents and caregivers—to live big, bold, authentically happy lives.
I recently founded Kapalua Cove Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to educating and empowering children in need. The foundation provides direct donations to charitable initiatives and donates books to orphanages, remote libraries, care centers, and more.
Along with the foundation, I launched Kapalua Cove Publishing. My first book project is a series called EQ Explorers, designed to educate and inspire children through beautifully illustrated, creative-yet-relatable tales. One hundred percent of our profits (yes, all our profits) go to the Kapalua Cove Foundation.
In ancient Hawaiian, “Kapalua” means “arms embracing the sea.” It’s a word that perfectly depicts my desire to embrace and help nurture children around the world, providing the tools and opportunities they need to live happy, healthy, emotionally connected lives. Along with Kapalua Cove, I’m working on the Real Happy Parent Podcast (coming soon) to help parents discover their path to personal happiness.
Over the years, I’ve developed the skills and resources to pursue this passion. Early in my career, I co-founded several smaller companies before launching BlenderBottle Company in 2000, with my husband, Steve. I still serve as the company’s COO, managing half of our day-to-day business. Now that our children are grown, I devote my spare time to helping children in need. I am truly living my dream, and I’m eager to help others find authentic happiness in all they do!
EQ EXPLORERS BOOK SERIES
All of my projects have one goal in mind; to improve the lives and happiness of children and their parents or caretakers.
The EQ Explorers book series is designed to educate and inspire children through beautifully illustrated, creative-yet-relatable tales. With each book in the series, I share a simple and powerful principle of happiness and emotional wellness.
One hundred percent of profits from EQ Explorers go to help underserved children through the non-profit Kapalua Cove Foundation.
The foundation provides direct donations to charitable initiatives and donates books to orphanages, remote libraries, care centers, and more.
