Christine McDannell

Co-Founder | CEO

“Ready, FIRE, Aim.”

Christine is an accomplished entrepreneur and founder. In 15 years she started 8 companies and sold each in successful exits. All eight companies are still in operation to this day. 
Described by her peers as a Futurist, Christine’s core talent is in identifying unmet needs and being able to quickly build, organize, and systematize those ventures to rapidly fulfill the need. Her favorite place to play is in spaces that did not exist prior. Christine LOVES industry disruption.... Almost as much as she loves the rush of adrenaline when racing her motorcycle on the track.
 
After living at the original Entrepreneur House in San Diego from 2015-2017, she decided to launch her own concept, Kindred Quarters. KQ embodies a high-end coliving solution for business owners who want to belong to an incredible tribe of successful & inspiring individuals, while outsourcing everything (cleaning, cooking, shopping, errands, laundry, etc.). #LifestyleDesign
 
She quickly realized that without software powering her coliving homes, she would not be able to scale. Just to run her concept she was using 11 different pieces of software including Trello, Google Drive, Google Calendar, AirBnB, Facebook Messenger.
 
There had to be a better way.
Christine recently published the first book in the Coliving industry (August 2018), The Coliving Code. Richard Branson graciously penned the introduction after being impressed with meeting her in person. She has been honored with numerous awards through the years for her passion, including the Small Business Administration 2009 Business Person of the Year and she also made the list for Entrepreneur Magazine's 100 Most Brilliant Companies for Cleanology in 2010, all before the age of 30. You can catch Christine weekly interviewing leaders in this space on her YouTube Show & podcast: The Coliving Code 🏡

Hobbies: Building companies, running marathons, traveling, and racing her Yamaha R6 motorcycle.
