about Annette Kinship


for Annette Kinship

This is a letter addressed to propose that I, Annette Kinship, in which all the skills my life has allowed, gain your attention. To what degree I am not sure. To the need, I am as of now unaware. I will outline my life experiences, jobs, gained skills, and studies. I am looking to gain a financial freedom and to gift my knowledge and love to others

To start I will speak of who I see myself as, and the facts. My name stated above is my true first name. The last name is the purposed name my son Logan and I pulled from the dictionary to incorporate our desire to live by a thought and to give me a professional name which indicates a new status of who I am in the business world and reputation.


At this time I am a single mother, and woman. During the course of 31 years I birthed seven children. All of which are wonderful and beautiful. As I am privileged to be named their mother, you too would be privileged to meet them. Later I may share their names and more about them. The time spent as a single mom while challenging, caused many reasons to learn several of the skills I have gained. Other skills were a part of my child hood. Others were a desire to learn or to have qualifications to be sure I could give my fullest to others, and still, or also have financial prosperity.

As of 2011, my responsibility for children at home is caring for and raising my youngest two, who are now 16 years of age and 19 years of age. This has qualified me for more time to better my skills in the health field and arts.

I will begin with my life as a child, and the schooling and jobs during life with my mom and dad. Even as some of those jobs played a part in my adult hood, also.

As a child we learned to work diligent, yet with joy, vibrant and together. The pay was mostly the reward of the happiness of others presented with our service and product. My dad, now a retired minister, yet still serving within his realm, as teaching about God and helping others, is a life time service. My mom also continues her service to others within her ministerial function. Their example and love is who I see as me.


I. At the age of 8 my work life began. My mother and father realized that living on a ministers salary had little to offer a family of 13. Themselves, 7 sons and 4 daughters. This then took them into the restaurant called The Deer Path Restaurant of New Berlin, New York, Where at age 8 I helped bake and prep cook, washed dishes, waited on people at the counter, possibly eating more homemade Boston cream donuts than selling. And my official job description was Pie Girl for the 'Smörgåsbords.' I served the pies and desserts while also helping seat people and bring them from their cars, or to their cars with an umbrella if it was raining.

At approximately 11 years of age my parents purchased the Bauders Motel, later renamed after my dads last name, Benoit's Motel. Also purchased was the restaurant in the Grand Union Shopping Plaza of Utica, N.Y. Added on to the motel was a double wide trailer turned into a coffee shop and dinner with organ to entertain ones thoughts. Some time in there we also became owners of the Cassaboom Restaurant and Inn.

My jobs and responsibilities: Prep cook for buffets, smörgåsbords, and short order

Dish washer and bus girl




Manager (when dad and mom were away)

Motel overseer and guest registration

Miniature golf coordinator and overseer

Motel room-maid

Cashier/ and Artist for Holidays


All of the restaurant food was homemade therefore the prep and cooking was peeling 50 lb. Bags of carrots not opening the cans, and even cutting and deveining the butts for steaks, and cutting the pork chops, while also learning to decorate wedding cakes. There was placing orders and joking around with family and answering employees questions, as well. During this time to keep things nice of course we learned to paint, and construct.

Later several of those businesses were closed to open a large restaurant with convention and banquet rooms. I married and became a mom, working still, although I became a Sambos' Restaurant waitress employee for a couple of years. (At the age of 16 through 18.) During the years of age 8 to 18 I was care taker of my 2 youngest brothers and the organists children as well as for other families.
