Because I Want To

Image text: PSA: "because I want to" & "because I don't want to" are both perfectly good reasons for doing / not doing something.PSA: “because I want to” and “because I don’t want to” are both perfectly good reasons for doing / not doing something.

You don’t owe anyone an explanation for WHY you want to or don’t want to. You don’t have to justify wanting or not wanting. You don’t have to question your desires or second-guess your warning bells.

It’s okay to honor what you do and don’t want to do.

About Sam

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.

(Personality included.)

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.)
