Here, Have Some Free Stuff

If you like what you’ve seen here so far and want to join me in the rebellion against shady business tactics, any type of preneur that doesn’t start with entre, and other general bullshittery, bang your email in the box below.

Here’s exactly what I’ll send you:

The Untamed Lowdown, my twice-monthly email missives. It includes:

  • My private stories about life and business
  • Links to my latest blog posts
  • Links to anything else I’ve had published on the web
  • A curated list of awesome shit I’ve seen online
  • Information about my courses if they’re enrolling

(Click here to see an example.)

You’ll also get:

  • The first week of Start Freelance Writing
  • Occasional updates and subscriber-only deals for my services, courses and products

I will never send you more than one email a week, because fuck that, am I right?

Hi Karen,

I really needed this one today.

Feeling overwhelmed by life, I was busily unsubscribing from email lists, and your words jumped out at me. Clearly I didn’t hit that unsubscribe link as I had planned to.

You’re awesome and I just wanted to send a rare email (I almost never do) just saying for you to keep being you in all your honest and shit-kicking way.

Thank you,

Hey Karen,

Just wanted to say that I love The Untamed Lowdown! It’s entertaining and includes useful stuff that I actually want to read. So it’s the only one out of all the emails I’m signed up to that I actually look forward to opening.


Hey Karen!

Thanks for consistently putting good shit in my inbox. You are literally the only newsletter type thing I read all the way to the end every time.

Rock on girl, I appreciate you.



Karen, I’ve been a fan of yours for a while now and I love your intolerance for all things bullshit.

But this email. Well, I had to respond. Thank fuck I am not the only person who is intentionally not busy and doesn’t want to be up 32 hours a day ‘hustling’ to become a ‘six-figure entrepreneur’ because it will ’empower’ me. Vom.

Anyway, thanks for being alive and dishing out your good shit. Fan for life.


You’re awesome, Karen. I love your emails and admire your vulnerability. I appreciate what you do!



You’re flippant, funny, and totally awesome. I enjoy your adventures and insights.

Thanks for all.


Just wanted you to know that in attempting to get a new biz idea off the ground – I’ve watched loads of slimy webinars and signed up for probably 40 email lists – you’re the first to get my real email address instead of my spam account in months. Looking forward to watching you be you and feeling inspired to just be me.


I love getting your emails. When I started freelance writing and blogging, I subscribed to a bunch of blogs that I liked. They all send way too many emails, except for you! I LOVE getting your emails because they make me laugh, and they come just enough to keep me updated on everything you have been up to. When I get emails from one blog too much I just end up deleting them without reading them, but yours are perfectly spread out. It gives me a chance to go back and read all the blogs I missed and other stuff you like to share, which is always appreciated :)

Love getting your emails! I read yours more than any other I subscribe to, and I think there are a couple reasons why. You don’t post too often, so your emails stay special. I look forward to reading about what you’ve been up to, the good and the bad, and the strategies you’ve put in place. You talk to me like a friend, not a high and mighty perfect expert, and I like that you don’t use bullshit jargon or try to guilt me into buying things or use any of that clickbaity crap. Also love the other helpful links you include at the bottom of your emails. Keep up the awesome work! Xx
