Tell us about yourself
My name is Kit Maloney, and I founded Kitara after making the journey from yoni steam skeptic to yoni steam super fan. I've spent the past twenty years as an advocate, activist, academic, and entrepreneur committed to the advancement of gender equity through women's embodied health and healing. My first yoni steam was transformative. The gentle yet potent power of that initial yoni steam unlocked a connection to the Divine Feminine I've been seeking for years. Then, after three yonis steam, I realized my PMS of menstrual cramps and lower back were simply gone. GONE - NO MORE CRAMPS! I've founded Kitara to make safe, easy, and comfortable in-home yoni steaming accessible to all.
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
Selling over 1000 yoni steam seats in 15 countries and 46 states within our first year of business.
What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?
Balancing big dreams with practical day-by-day steps to get there.
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
Survey your customers as much as possible; their feedback is gold. Fall in love with selling. You have a beautiful product; let the world know about it! Pay yourself from the beginning. It's the only sustainable way.
