OCD: mental illness or retirement plan?
I'm low on cash but high on vibes
About a year ago, I had an idea for an OCD and mental health newsletter that was one-part useful mental health content and like… six parts dumb jokes and stuff.
And to be honest, I’m pretty jazzed with how it’s turning out.
So last month I quit my job to write full-time. And today, I’m launching a paid option for Psychology Onions.
Adding a paid option feels a bit like I’m trying to monetize my mental illness, but whatever—that’s just capitalism, bro. We’re all just part of the **system**
Anyway—a paid subscription is either $6/month or $60/year. I also have a Psychology Funyuns tier that’s $200/year and $50 of that goes to the International OCD Foundation (a super cool non-profit that works to help those affected by OCD).
If you upgrade to a paid subscription, you will get a hand-drawn onion and a thank you note in the mail—all the posts will continue to stay free, but a paid subscription will help me continue to write, make dumb jokes, and shed light on an obnoxiously-misunderstood disorder.
I have BIG dreams for Psychology Onions—books, card games, novelty mugs, maybe a direct-to-consumer onion subscription box or a straight-to-DVD action film starring the guy who plays Burton Guster in Psych but he’s an actual psychologist, tasked with saving the world from a fourth AVATAR sequel.
I’ve got loads of ideas and all of them are absolute winners. Here’s a glimpse of my business plan:
Now is the perfect time to invest in Psychology Onions. The stock market is trash, real estate is trash, crypto is trash.
I also won’t make you any money but I promise to work really really hard and reward you in a myriad of non-financial, increasingly abstract ways.
