We’ve evolved from a project that started with KK in 1998 for fun, as She Kan Golf. In 2002, She Kan Kompany became a sole proprietorship. Between 2009 and 2010, KK Hartman Coaching, LLC was formed doing business as She Kan Kompany. With important future business plans identified, in January 2015, we became KK Hartman Partners, LLC. In June of 2021 we added Red River Wines and Provisions, LLC.
The reason why we’re successful, is because we’ve built it on a solid foundation. (For a healthy grape vine comparison; planted in nutritious soil, with great root stock). Consider our root stock a combination of Love, Respect, Optimism, Patience, Integrity, Affection, Invention, Perspective, Acceptance, and Imagination. Add to the above list our faith in God and each other, and boom, you now know our secret sauce.
We met on July 2, 2000. A mutual friend, KK’s neighbor at the time, worked for Scott, and insisted we meet. It took a little while to get the meeting set, but eventually we met and as they say (not sure who “they” are, but), “the rest is history”.
Quickly, we realized we really have a ton of fun together, have shared interests like wine, food, golf, music, and travel, plus we are both from families with highly complimentary value systems.
We were married outside, overlooking the 10th tee box at Whistling Straits Golf Course near Kohler, Wisconsin on September 28, 2003. We’re currently residents of Sadler, Texas and in our 22nd year together (19th year married). We have a gentle girl giant, Black Mouth Cur, named Mojo.
For a toast and surprise for Scott immediately following our marriage ceremony, KK gave him a trophy. Here’s what she said to Scott:
“As many of you know, throughout my life, golf has been so good to me, and a fond pass time of my family! We’ve played many beautiful courses all over the country, and we’ve enjoyed each other’s great rounds & victories. And… along the way we’ve all gathered a fun assortment of prizes, including medals, ribbons and trophies.
Today, on such a special day for me, a MAJOR, you might say, a link to golf couldn’t be more significant, especially at such a wonderful golf destination here at Whistling Straits, so please indulge me a bit.
As you know, at any Major’s trophy presentation, the Chairman of the Board brings the trophy to the presentation site and issues the winner the first congratulatory handshake.
Today’s Chairman of the Board is appropriately, my father, and today’s Champion is R. Scott Hartman, because today at a place of golf I have received the most special “prize”, my Husband.
The winner’s cup is inscribed with today’s date, location, names, etc., and the words “You’re the Best” which for a long time before we were exchanging I love you’s, was code… for either;
I think I love you, or you’re more special than I realize, or simply, I love you, before either of us had the guts to say it out loud.
On the reverse side it’s inscribed with my Scott Hartman Top 10, Ten traits I value about him. And why we because of these we “work”. These are just some of the qualities that Scott possesses that make him such a wonderful man: Love, Respect, Optimism, Patience, Integrity, Affection, Invention, Perspective, Acceptance, and Imagination.
Please join me in congratulating R. Scott Hartman, my Champion!”
Together they’re dreaming, building, repurposing buildings, wide open spaces and working toward the opening their small winery with a specific menu of excellent dry wines. They’re targeting late 2024.
Scott serves as a Senior Partner for Culture Partners and as a community leader and Board Member for 2ndSaturday.
KK serves mainly FarmHer, Winemaker and Chief of Vision for the Hartman Vineyard, and Red River Wines and Provisions, LLC.
