Rural Kind Company was formed by Kelly, Iesha & Brook. It grew out of a deep desire to see & celebrate the success of rural creatives, entrepreneurs, and trailblazers in the media we consume.

We also passionately believe in creating personal & professional educational opportunities to fuel these successes stories. If you are a rural entrepreneur ready to take your business and overall life to the next level, you're in the right place. 

"She Is" is quite possibly the best rural women's conference ever.

At Rural Kind Co, our mission is to create a space that allows women to see their true potential, both personally & professionally, through meaningful conversations, authentic connection & in depth coaching and training.

Our latest conference, She Is, is all about women inspiring each other, connecting, and digging in deep to consider how to overcome fear, redefine success, and make a positive impact within our families, workspaces and communities. The She Is Women's Conference is a jam packed day of panels, speakers, networking, food & incredible swag!

Create a Magazine? Sure, why not.

What do you do while you wait out a pandemic?  If you are RKCO you become editor-and-chief of the newest rural life magazine to hit the shelves. We decided that if we can't bring our conferences to you in person, we can bring the connection, inspiration and Rural life stories to you through these pages.  The heart of America is still beating and we can't wait to show you.

Coming soon.

Kelly Bay is an author, speaker, coach, and serial entrepreneur. In 2009 she and her husband decided that raising their family in her rural Iowa home town was more important than a little thing like, you know,  actually having a job in that town. She immediately started a business to fill the employment gap and hasn't looked back since. 

In addition to reclaiming the rural story at RKCo, Bay is a small business coach for rural entrepreneurs at www.kellybayinc.com. In her free time, Kelly enjoys not cleaning her house and showing unwilling participants photos of her two dogs.
