Privacy Policy


Are you kidding? A privacy policy? Ugh. Fine.

What the heck is a GDPR and why are you interrupting my binge-watching of "Evil Genius" on Netflix to write this crap?

Apparently, all of us content creators with mailing lists, etc. are now required to have a privacy policy. Fine. You asked for it. Here's mine:

Steve Austin is basic AF. He writes blogs, books, and creates podcasts. He's a really nice guy who has a free newsletter, geared to encourage the underdog and encourage things like self-care and everyday spirituality. If you give him your email address, you'll likely hear from him once a week, if he remembers. Steve doesn't want any other personal information from you (except maybe your first name). He's not a hacker or a creeper. He just wants your email address, and only if you sign up and do something called a double opt-in...whatever that means. 

P.S. Felicia - anytime you want to say "bye," go for it. Don't let the door hit ya. Ain't nobody gonna make you stay.

Okay, here's the legal mumbo jumbo. Sorry if you fall asleep.
