Never underestimate the importance of clearing your head.
Never underestimate the importance of clearing your head. Yesterday afternoon, I was in the stuck place — the beginning of a project, blank pages staring me down, mountains of detail screaming for organization and clarity… and here’s me, grasping at every distraction I can think of. I paid my credit card bill. I gave my client wranglers group some love (which was really just an excuse to Facebook). I started again. I stopped again. I started sweating the deadline.
So, I left the house. I went on a muddy, sloppy trail run and let my brain zigzag through the project while my toes zigzagged through roots and stones and papery leaves.
Sometimes you need to air it out.
Samantha Pollack writes creative copy (mostly emails) for feminist companies and/or thought leaders who are working to build a fairer, more connected culture. She’s also the founder of The Highly Sensitive Entrepreneur, a 6-week course that helps HSP business owners create healthier, more sustainable systems in their work.
She publishes frequent essays on feminism, privilege, pop culture, entrepreneurship, the creative process, and more on her website, cultofpersonality.co. She currently lives in Asheville, NC, and while she can *technically* work from anywhere, she prefers her adventures laptop-free.
Emails for cult thought leaders.
Want to learn how to craft emails that inspire action and engagement WITHOUT the “tried and true” (cough: patriarchal) norms we’ve all been taught?
I’m doing it, and I can show you how to do it, too.
(But sometimes, I also like to write about the books I’m reading, or the creative process, or the entrepreneurial experience, or why I hate Steve Jobs, or how I met my BFF. I’ll send you emails like that, too.)
*Just kidding. It’s only an email list.
Books. Cats. Rants. Drawrings.
(and every couple months or so, an unexplained absence 🤷🏻)
