6 Month Plan
Did some 6-month goal setting with Stephanie Hayes last week. Here are my goals:
1. HSP Course Launched. I’m creating a program for entrepreneurs who identify as a highly sensitive person. I had to revamp it to include privilege and unlearning (I am not an anti-racist educator, but you can’t talk about your own sensitivity w/o acknowledging Black people & PoC who are also sensitive but can’t take a break from systemic racism). Hopefully this will be out in Jan? It’s been hard to get traction because this year is a real bitch for HSPs.
2. Writing at least 500 words a week. It’s not much but it’s something. I wish I could write all day everyday, but mama’s gotta eat and this is the best I can do right now.
3. SAVE DEMOCRACY! You should always set goals that are Specific, Measurable, Action-oriented, and Time sensitive. 😉 Hoping to really nail this one y’all.
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 🤷🏻)
