Making Change with Cindy Gallop

May 3, 2022

Making change means taking creative action to solve a social problem and my guest for this episode of Camera Ready & Abel, Cindy Gallop, Founder & CEO of MakeLoveNotPorn, is making change to how we think about sexual values and behaviors in her necessary and trailblazing platform.

The tagline reads: Pro-sex. Pro-porn. Pro-knowing the difference and Cindy goes deep pointing out we are raised by our parents to behave well with good manners, a work ethic, sense of responsibility and accountability but we are rarely taught to  behave well in bed with values like empathy, sensitivity, generosity, kindness, honesty and respect.

Key takeaways:

  • Everything starts with living your values
  • Realize what matters
  • shared values plus shared action equals shared profit, both financial and social.

Cindy, like so many of my guests, is an accidental entrepreneur - and thriving.
