Hi, my name is Michelle Kinsman, and my mission is to help you succeed.

I cannot tell a lie. I’m kind of a badass.

Michelle Kinsman, the Real-World Feminist

At age 23, I moved from the sticks of rural PA to Philadelphia with a rusty Ford Taurus station wagon, roughly $500 in my checking account, and not much else.

Now I run production and operations at a large-scale advertising agency in one of the big-3 global holding companies. When the shit hits the fan, the call for help comes to me. I’ve created project management standards that other agencies have ripped off. I’m not just good at what I do— I’m damn good.

It was a hard, long road from my humble start to where I am now.

I learned so many lessons along the way.

And now I’m ready to share these real-world lessons.

With YOU.

I am driven by a deep desire to help other women get ahead in their careers.


Because I firmly believe that as women rise to leadership positions in their industries, the world will change.

I’m simply here to do my part to make it happen.

I’m not here to give you rah-rah bullshit girl-power memes or to teach you things you could learn in any basic Google search.

I’m here to give you real-world, practical advice on how to build a badass career & get rewarded for it.

I’m the Real-World Feminist.

I’m here to help YOU get ahead.
