Episode #28: Katie Horwitch // Founder of WANT: Women Against Negative Talk // Moving Forward Fearlessly

We are so pumped for this episode.

We have both been AVID listeners of the WANTcast for years now, and to say we admire Katie Horwitch’s work doesn’t even begin to cover it.

Katie Horwitch is a writer, speaker, and the founder of WANT: Women Against Negative Talk – a platform that gives women tools, insight, and inspiration to move forward in their lives by shifting their negative self-talk patterns.

She brings to the table over a decade of experience in the wellness lifestyle editorial space, and almost two decades in public speaking and performance. She has spoken across the country – from SXSW to body-positive pageants – about self-confidence and self image, and is the host of the WANTcast: The Women Against Negative Talk Podcast, where she interviews visionary WANT Women (and occasionally, some magnificent WANT Men) about moving forward fearlessly and taking a pragmatic approach to positivity.

WANT was founded out of the realization that there were zero places for women to not only receive inspiration, but actual tools change their limiting negative talk patterns in a lasting way that works very personally and specifically for them. WANT is what Katie wished she would have had early on when she was first starting to navigate the highs and lows of being human. Katie firmly believes that in order to change the world, you must change YOUR world.

Katie was a founding editor of The Chalkboard Mag and has been featured in countless publications such as mindbodygreen, Darling Magazine, xoJane, and more. As an actress, singer and host, she’s been seen on TLC, Entertainment Tonight, and Fox Business Channel, as well as in feature films and on stages both regional and Off-Broadway. She has been teaching group fitness for over a decade, and is currently a trainer on Aaptiv, the #1 audio fitness app, where she reaches over one million users per month with her unique brand of positive, proactive coaching. She holds a BA in Drama from University of California, Irvine, where she also studied sociocultural anthropology and creative writing.

Currently, Katie is living in New York City with her partner Jeremy and spending her energy on shifting the cultural self-talk paradigm, producing engaging new content for women both online and off, advising creatives and entrepreneurs on how use their unique strengths to make the biggest impact possible, and singing loudly while she runs.

Her middle name is Joy. Literally.
