Welcome to the WANTcast: The Women Against Talk Podcast -lessons in moving forward fearlessly, and spreading the (good) word. In each episode, writer, speaker, coach and WANT founder Katie Horwitch unpacks tips, tools, motivation and inspiration to help you shift your self-talk: the internal narrative you have on loop 24/7 that tells you who you are and who you should be. You can't change the world until you change YOUR world, first - and shifting your self-talk is where it all begins. Dive into topics such as confidence, fear, trust, body image, self-doubt, self-worth, relationships, career, friendships, social issues, and more. Walk away from each episode with hyper-actionable steps to shift your self-talk from reactive to proactive, as well as inspiration to keep going when the going gets tough. The goal isn't to change who you are - it's to BECOME who you know you're meant to be.

    169: Motivation, Flexibility, and RETHINKING Your Relationship With FITNESS with Amanda Katz

    169: Motivation, Flexibility, and RETHINKING Your Relationship With FITNESS with Amanda Katz

    The best fitness advice isn't necessarily what you think it is. In a sea of tips, tricks, and programs telling you what to do, how do you figure out what's right for you, and maybe more tricky — how do you build a sustainably healthy relationship with exercise? Especially if you're someone who has a history with eating disorders or body image issues?
    Today's guest, NYC fitness professional Amanda Katz, is here to talk about:
    Why motivation and even discipline are smaller pieces of the puzzle than we realize, and what to focus on instead to create lasting habits Specific examples of what flexibility in an exercise routine can look like Having a healthy relationship with fitness after struggling with eating disorders, disordered patters, or body image  How to approach fitness and training goals no matter who you are How to help a loved one when you're worried they're going down a harmful path of disordered behaviors Combatting NEW YEAR NEW YOU toxic fitness culture messaging in January (and beyond) and more!

    168: How To Figure Out What SUCCESS Means to You (Before You Get There!)

    You've probably heard the phrase "you get to decide what success means to you"...but how do you LITERALLY do that? And how do you outline succeess for yourself as you're chasing your dreams or setting goals in the first place?

    167: How To (Radiantly) Rebel Against AGEISM with Karen Walrond

    167: How To (Radiantly) Rebel Against AGEISM with Karen Walrond

    Today is the final celebration in our October Book Birthday party — and we are ending with a BANGER of an episode. Today’s guest is a longtime friend of the pod, and a true force to be reckoned with.
    Karen Walrond is an author, leadership coach, activist and attorney. An avid photographer and journaler, Walrond's writing and coaching have helped thousands of people around the world find meaning and purpose in their lives. Karen and her work have been featured on Brené Brown's Unlocking Us podcast, PBS, Huffington Post, CNN, and The Oprah Winfrey Show, and her award-winning blog, Chookooloonks, is a lifestyle, inspiration, and photography destination.
    Karen is the author of The Beauty of Different, the Lightmaker’s Manifesto — and most notably for this conversation, her latest book, RADIANT REBELLION: Reclaim Aging, Practice Joy, and Raise a Little Hell.
    Radiant Rebellion is an investigation into how we can reclaim aging, cultivate joy, and resist ageism. As Karen says, internalized ageism--bias against our future selves--is not our only option; we can write a different story of aging than the one we've been handed. In this conversation we’ll dive into all the ways we get wrapped up in ageism without even realizing it, and how, exactly, to move forward.

Practical and Brilliant

Katie provides simple tools that support women in all stages of their lives, applicable to relationships, careers, dreams and goals. Practical steps are easier to implement when so many of us are busy and distracted, planning to “do better” when we get some free time. Thank you, Katie, for being a strong voice for women.

Engaging, informative, and a FUN listen!

Katie is absolutely gifted at interviewing and storytelling. Her energy is infectious, and I always leave episodes feeling invigorated about my life and my potential. Exactly the pick-me-up we all could use from a podcast BFF. Can’t recommend enough!

VeronicaGrant ,

So refreshing!

Loved the most recent episode (love is a verb) where the guests talked about how you can learn to love yourself and someone else at the same time. It was such an insightful and refreshing take to something we hear all the time!
