The Magazine

Being an Indie Chick means being self-empowered, driven, independent, and confident. It means paving your own path, stopping at nothing to make your dreams come true, and knowing your inner badass is there to tap into whenever you need her. There’s no right way to live, no right career path to choose, and no specific way you need to look. When you’re an Indie Chick, you are constantly striving to become the best version of yourself, and nothing more. We want you happy, healthy, confident and ready to conquer the world. Welcome to The Indie Chicks, you little badass. You’re going to love it here.

The Indie Chicks, Inc. is so much more than a self empowerment magazine, it’s a lifestyle. We aim to develop and empower the woman’s sense of self and help guide her toward embracing her inner badass in every aspect of her life.

No matter who you are or what you do in life, the life of a woman is the same as the next. The moment you wake up, you’re you. But within seconds, a thousand hats are thrown your way and you instantaneously become someone’s wife, someone’s mother, someone’s colleague or sister or friend… And before you know it, that sense of self  gets lost in the chaos.

Our Mission: This community aims to target that inner badass that lives within us all and empower her enough to  get through everything life throws our way. That way she’ll be able to wear each hat as well as the next.

Topics: We touch on everything pertaining to the everyday woman, with a theme of badassery tying it all together. In our attitude section, we discuss confidence boosts and letting go of competition, jealousy and lack of self worth. Other sections discuss everything from entrepreneurship to the 9 to 5er and from the married to the single.

We spotlight women we admire and we think would serve well as role models to our readers. No matter what you do or how successful you are, there is always something to be learned and there is always inspiration to be felt.

Blogger driven and constantly evolving, The Indie Chicks is a community for women who crave to be inspired, motivated and most of all, supported in becoming the best versions of themselves.

Chrystal Rose

President, COO

Chrystal Rose is our President and COO, and contributes to the IC on a variety of topics including articles on business and entrepreneurship. Helping women to empower themselves has become a deep passion of hers and The Indie Chicks is the perfect vessel to fuel that passion.

Whether traveling for business or pleasure, Chrystal loves exploring new places, trying new foods and attempting to replicate them in her kitchen at home. Health and fitness is a crucial part of her life and she ensures she makes eating healthy and working out an integral part of her lifestyle. Even though she looks pretty girly, she’s a tomboy in disguise and loves her New England sports teams.

When Chrystal isn’t spending her time on The Indie Chicks, she’s running her own marketing company, leading a Girl Scout Troupe and finding ways she can give back to those who’ve given to her by paying it forward.


Julie Zantopoulos

Vice President, Senior Editor

Julie Zantopoulos (aka Jewels) is our VP and Senior Editor. Chances are you’ve interacted with her if you’ve contributed to the magazine, or are looking to. Working with the IC writers is a dream job for Jewels who has been a writer all her life.

She is an east coast girl at heart but has a love of traveling and meeting new people. Give her a map, a car, and some music and she’ll happily sing/car dance her way across the country. A die hard Flyers fan, she’s a hockey girl but loves her other Philly sports teams as well.

If she’s not working on The Indie Chicks she’s working on her own blog, According to Jewels, or her first novel. Among her greatest blessings she counts her family and friends and the amazing group of women she gets to work with on a daily basis.
