What People Are Saying:

“I had reached a rock bottom period and was ready for change but didn’t know where to start. Since then I have been craving this sense of community with shifted mindset and awareness of my values and just myself. Your podcast has felt like the community I have been waiting for. It has opened my eyes to so many wonderful, like-minded people, that feel like friends even though I’ve never once spoken to them directly. Over the past year and what felt like a never-ending road of being knocked while already being down with a very loud and constant stream of negative self-talk, I was told time and time again that I was “too sensitive.” Thanks to your podcasts, tools, and resources, I now know I am highly sensitive and am learning to navigate clearer than before. I have also begun work on shifting that voice in my head and being more kind to myself in terms of body image and success. Although the work never ends, and I’m not sure I would want it to, I just wanted to say thank you. You have felt like a friend and I cannot speak enough praise of your passion and work.”
-Nikki R, reader + WANTcast subscriber

“For the last six years, I have made a conscious effort to banish negative talk. That’s why I’m so grateful that Katie Joy Horwitch created WANT: Women Against Negative Talk. Katie has created a safe place for us to navigate this strange, fragile state of “being positive.” It isn’t merely just grabbing confidence by the balls, even when you don’t feel like it.”
-Lynn Chen, actress + activist

“Katie, we want you to come with us to everything. You are truly amazing and an inspirational force.
-Shelley Zalis, founder and CEO of The Girls’ Lounge + The Female Quotient

“THANK YOU! It was a pleasure having you with us. You brought amazing, positive energy and your workshop was tremendously well-received. All I heard was praise, praise, praise!

-Lourdes Alvarez, Chairwoman of University Of New Haven Women’s Leadership Conference

“Katie Horwitch is initiating a landmark movement. On her site and podcast, she shares stories about where negativity comes from, tools for how to deal with it when it seems to swallow us whole, and ideas on how to take thoughtful action that might change the situation on the next go-around. We need this wisdom now more than ever. Let’s learn how to ride this wave together, shall we?”
– Alexa Gray, health coach

“Body image and negative self talk is something [I discussed in a podcast]. In the same vein […] I’ve discovered WANT — a project by Katie Horwitch, who, in addition to working on this incredible venture also contributes to some of my favorite wellness sites. Obsessed.”
-Lindsay Mueller, senior editor at mindbodygreen + host of The WELL/AWARE Show

“Raise your hand if you’re a total dick to yourself sometimes? Judging your body, success, ways you could be better. It’s something I’m constantly working on. Katie Horwitch is leading the charge with tools to stop beating ourselves up. Dive into the site and spread the message. Thanks, Katie.”
-Jessica Murnane, author + activist

“I can not thank you enough for what you are putting out in the world. What I love about your website and podcast is that it touches on so many amazing points. It takes effort to address negative thought patterns. There is power in learning to love ourselves not only for the great things but also our flaws. And we cannot, or at least we do not, have to go through this world alone. Thank you for providing such a wonderful source of positivity. Thank you for being you. Thank you for your work.”
-Toni L.R., reader + WANTcast subscriber

“I started following Katie’s career […] and fell in love with her beautiful ability to express herself and the difficult subjects that she tackled with such ease, eloquence, and grace. When I learned about her podcast I was so excited and it did not disappoint! I love that she is unabashedly herself on this podcast, bringing her bold personality and style to it, and that she is yet again tackling so many important issues that are not often talked about. The whole podcast is so inspiring yet real, and with each episode I listen to I feel uplifted and stronger knowing that there is a whole tribe of women out there who are going through the same things and supporting one another through it all. Thank you so much Katie for the wonderful work you are doing.”
-clairemarie24, reader + WANTcast subscriber

“…check out Women Against Negative Talk (WANT), a site full of tools, resources, motivation, and inspiration meant to help women crush their negative talk patterns. This isn’t just about beauty, but about the way we so casually (and daily) limit ourselves. Currently reading the entire site.
