MAYBE THE MOST EXCITING NEWS I'VE EVER HAD...EVER.
Monday, September 1, 2014
The title isn't clickbait.
This is probably the most exciting (and for me, most certainly terrifying) news I've ever shared.
I'M GOING TO LEAVE MY CURRENT JOB AND DO BODY LOVE ADVOCACY FULL TIME.
Yes, that's happening.
A couple of years ago I would have never thought that I would have the opportunity to teach self-love and body acceptance as a career... but here we are! It's a thing. It's happening. And I'm so excited.
I've found myself running ragged, working 86 hour weeks (no joke) trying to give every part of my life the attention it deserved... and well, that proved to be impossible. But I tried for a year and half and I'm shocked I haven't torn all my hair out. Shocked and grateful. What I started to realize is that when it comes to body positive activism, I needed to be all in, or completely out. And of course, I'd NEVER let you down, SO I'M ALL FUCKING IN.
Time for more blogging about critical subjects that need exploration. Time for updating this website and pumping it full of content. Time for me to respond to pop culture when it happens, and not weeks later. Time for me to share where to find bad-ass clothing for all sizes. Time to have more guest writers. Time for me to learn HOW TO FUCKING VLOG. It's hard but you want it and so I'm gonna learn! Time to write a curriculum for teens. Time to teach that curriculum in high schools. Time to collaborate with more bad-asses. Time to give the Body Love Conference the love it needs. Time to invest fully in that which I feel most passionate about: helping you (and others) learn to love yourselves just as you are.
Because you deserve it.
I'm using an amazing thing called Patreon to support this transition.
You can contribute to my mission (for $2!) , get killer perks, and learn more here.
Can't contribute that way right now? It's totally okay. Try sharing the Patreon link instead!
Lets change the world bitches.
One month at a time.
Ya with me?
