Ep 7: How To Stop Caring What People Think with MakeLoveNotPorn founder, Cindy Gallop

“I don’t wait for things to change, I make them change.”
— Cindy Gallop

We all know about fear, whether it be of failing, speaking up, or feeling a certain way.

However, today’s guest gives fear the finger as she dives into an in-depth conversation about gender diversity, self-acceptance, and why women should never cease to push the boundaries created for them by a male-dominated society.

Cindy Gallop, brand and business innovator, discusses the things women can do in order to change the world working against them such as taking small actions to change the way they think, saying what they mean, and supporting other women. Cindy works every day to help women diminish fear, jumpstart self-acceptance, and ultimately push back at the environments that push to keep them under.

Cindy is the founder of makelovenotporn, a mission based on “Pro-sex. Pro-porn. Pro-knowing the difference,” and works as a consultant for people who want to change the game in their sector. Cindy is known for her stance on diversity, equality, and confronting societal issues every day.
