If you're interested about getting in contact with WKB for a particular project/request, please check out this page before submitting a request.
If you’ve subscribed and it's been over two weeks since you haven't gotten a sticker, please re-fill out the Subscribe form and be sure to review all of your information. Usually, if a form isn’t filled out correctly (ex: incomplete email address, incorrect email, not hitting the submit button), I don’t get an email notification with your form/am not able to send out letters to incomplete addresses.
*NOTE: Stickers are limited to one per person.
It's pretty easy to get a hold of my email if you’re an email subscriber.
*If you're wanting additional media coverage as a team outside the NWSL/USWNT or a soccer business, please see the next section.
However, if you'd like to be pen pals or send over other goods in the mail as well, here's the place to do so:
Jackie Gutierrez/Women Kick Balls
24040 Postal Avenue #54
Moreno Valley, CA 92553
*NOTE: If you would like to hear back from me or would like some extra trading cards, please include a self-addressed and stamped envelope. Please don't send me anything that needs additional postage in order for it to be returned.
WKB focuses on growing the women's game primarily through consistent coverage on the National Women's Soccer League and the U.S. Women's National Team.
For organizations or companies outside of those criteria's who are wanting media coverage, you can hire WKB for commissioned articles. Please note that for these services, an evaluation on the alignment of the story/company will be made ahead of time. Please send inquires via email with additional project information.
I'm glad you asked! While WKB has roots as an independent news source in covering the NWSL and U.S. Women's National Team, additionally, WKB also provides custom media and marketing services to athletes and sports organizations.
You can hire WKB on a freelance basis to create content, assist in media relations, or to be a guest speaker. The options are endless, but you can view a full list of services here.
While I'm grateful for others wanting to contribute to the site, WKB currently doesn't have the capacity to provide additional media credentials, take on interns (paid or unpaid), or provide job opportunities.
However, if you're looking for internships, job opportunities, or other ways to connect with professionals in the industry, Women in Soccer is a great resource and you can sign up for a free membership to an incredible community here.
Although I enjoy getting to connect with others through conversations, WKB is currently not available to be a guest on podcasts during the NWSL season.
For those wanting a guest on their podcast, applications will open in the NWSL offseason and 4-7 podcasts will be selected. In the meantime, if you would like to learn more about my work, you can view my previous podcast appearances here.
Stickers are only sent once someone becomes an email subscriber as I have a very specific system to keep track of subscribers, so, the best way to make sure friends, family, and internet strangers can get a hold of one is by encouraging them to Subscribe.
You can do this by sharing posts on social media, word of mouth, or by forwarding them a WKB newsletter, but additional stickers are not available to send out for others to directly promote.
While I’ve been a student myself and appreciate helping others, there are many additional resources to learn about my work and career journey as I'm not available to help the many students that reach out to me for projects.
In similar fashion to one of my favorite writers Austin Kleon, if you have a question about my work, the best thing to do is research me as if I’ve been dead for a while. You can learn more about my journey through plenty of options and resources here.
Although I would love to get to every request, I do get hundreds of emails and DM's from people wanting to connect with me about my career journey. As time is of the essence, you can now schedule a personal 1:1 call with me here.
Additionally, I post a behind the scenes video every Wednesday on Patreon where you can gain personal advice and insight on the highs and lows of my career journey.
If neither of those options are for you, the WKB YouTube channel is a free resource and videos are published every Friday.
To inquire about booking WKB/Jackie Gutierrez as a guest speaker, please get in contact by filling out this inquiry form. Please outline the context of the event, date, and speaking needs in greater detail as speaking fees vary per event.
While articles will always remain free, one of the best ways to support WKB financially is by becoming a Patreon member. Through this platform, you can gain personal advice and insight on the highs and lows of my career journey as I publish a new video every Wednesday.
If you want to support without being a Patreon member, you can buy me a cup of coffee or schedule a 1:1 call with me here.
