Get to know us a little better.

Lifestyle Publications launched Leawood Lifestyle, its flagship publication, in September 2009. In a time of economic downturn, Leawood Lifestyle’s uplifting content and good news about the community was welcomed by readers, and the community-inspired content immediately became something that neighbors looked forward to receiving in their mailboxes each month. By mid-2011, Lifestyle was producing four community-focused monthly publications which served nearly 60,000 homeowners in the most affluent suburbs of Kansas City. With such success in the Kansas City market, Lifestyle licensed the rights to produce magazines across the country and is now represented by 120 magazines in 32 states and counting.
