Meet the Family
As an entrepreneur, author and parenting “guru”, single mom, Kytka “Kit” Hilmar-Jezek loves to empower and inspire her children to live lives where they will be challenged to lead, empower and inspire as well as be self sufficient entrepreneurs in their own right in this rapidly changing economic climate. She says “My life’s purpose has been to influence them to be kind, patient with people and compassionate leaders.”
Founder of Live Education, Rainbow Rosenbloom says “Kit has strong ideals, accompanied by the rare courage that allows for hope in the midst of great adversity. I personally find her input to be highly intelligent, incisive, timely and compelling virtually each and every time. Kytka’s initiatives are precisely what our culture needs in these difficult times.”
As an avid traveler and homeschooling parent, Kit shares that the freedom of schedules has allowed her children to gain a global education they never would have gotten sitting in a classroom. “They have hands on experience in conflict resolution, breaking language barriers, bridging cultural differences and finding solutions.”
Kit was born in the Czech Republic, and has lived all over the United States and in Central America. She is fluent in 3 languages, and her children are quick to follow suit. Growing up with immigrant parents, Kit quickly learned the skills necessary for survival, and with no use of language and no tools that really meant much in a new land, that meant using creativity to build entrepreneurship and success. “When there is no other option, you make the best of what you have and go for it! You don’t accept “no” as an option, because your very life depends upon it. Now I realize that what my parents taught me, people pay thousands to attend seminars to learn! For my family, it was just about making it.!”
Kit is an advocate for children, women, holistic health & wellness and educational choices. Her son, now 17 is her partner in several projects they have geared towards teaching leadership and teamwork to teens.
A family friend says “Kit and her children are the most intelligent, inspirational and interesting people I have ever met. Their incredible experiences and global living experiences have made them all so sensitive to issues that many of us can barely understand as concepts – let alone relate to in our daily lives.”
Famed author Joseph Chilton Pierce states “That a single individual could accomplish so much as Kytka Hilmar-Jezek has, while at the same time tending to her family, is an admirable example for us all, both parents and all citizens interested in improving the quality of our populations intelligence and character. In no way can the importance of her work be over-emphasized. Needless to say, I find Kits work extremely important and all of her efforts quite admirable.”
Keeping busy with their blogs, writing, speaking, book signings and their websites, this family’s mission is to use all they have learned on their journey and inspire the creative hearts of their friends and followers to open and expand.
Highly supportive of each others projects and unique talents, all of their websites inter-link and they usually travel together to all of the events they attend. This past year the family attended over ten seminars of such greats as Tony Robbins, James Ray, Louise Hay, Marianne Williamson, Wayne Dyer, Marshall Sylver, T Harv Ecker, Ephran Taylor, Dolf de Roos, Gary King, Joel Bauer, Loral Langemeir and more. Kit’s children are welcome by the speakers because of how they behave and the interest they show at the events. They also hurry home to write their thoughts at their blogs and websites, sharing with the growing numbers of children who share their interests.
The Jezek children are well versed in all aspects of personal development and they honor and study various spiritual traditions. In their writing, they share their reviews of themes such as the Law of Attraction, Reiki, and Personal development. They are welcomed into an inner circle of today’s most famous thought leaders because of how Kit has raised them and how they have lived their lives, as an example of so many choices that many people just read about.
Meet the Kids
Zynnia is 9 years old. She is the family’s sunshine who is always giving and sharing her smile. As the youngest, she hold their hearts in her hands and her greatest contribution is her constant love that she shares. Offering massages, reiki, posting little uplifting notes and bringing around snacks while the others are working – she is the glue that holds it all together.
Zanna is 12 years old and was in culture shock when the family returned to the US after living in Central America for 6 years. She writes on the subject of beauty from within, and has a strong distaste for cliques, superficiality and the falseness of peer pressure. Her writing focuses on empowering girls in their own right and not falling into the “in” crowd. “Being different is a gift – there is only one you, so be the best you that you can be!”
