Why The Indie Chicks Blog Exists (And Why You Love It)


‘Get off your high horse – Where do you come off telling US about who we are, who we should be, and what dreams we should follow? Why should we give two shits about The Indie Chicks?’

I get it. You read this title and you automatically assume this will be a blatant piece of self promotion, urging you to give us your first born once you’ve finished reading in order to receive the solution to all of your problems.

You’re wrong.

Although I’d like to tell our readers we are a bunch of successful, condo-owning business-women, the truth is.. we are exactly like you, our readers. Each team member has overcome extreme struggles to get to where we are, and not one of us is done climbing.

We have found a way to support each other – through weekly staff meetings, daily email threads, and private facebook messages – where we not only work on the company and its vision, but also help each other through those struggles.

Yes. We are all still struggling.

The reason we write on the topics you see on this website is because those are the topics that get US through. We know when we need friends, when we need a kick in the ass, and when we need to be told we’re worth it.

We’re honest – even about the ugly, dark parts of our lives.

Within the group, we share stories of domestic abuse, rape, drug abuse, financial problems, weight and general health obstacles… social, work and love related struggles.. WE KNOW ABOUT IT ALL.

So we write about it. We write about what we needed to know or hear when we were going through it.

Right now, you see a big emphasis  on pursuing your dreams. Know why?

We are all fitting The Indie Chicks in between raising our children, attending our 9-5’s, paying our bills, and working on our relationships… We’re finding the time {mostly, we’re making the time} to make OUR dream.. a reality.

One day, we want this project to reach the homes of women everywhere, we want it to pay our bills and put food on our tables, and we want to be able to devote ALL of our time and resources to encouraging others to follow their dreams, too.

Maybe that’s why men read our blog too.. and why they like it just as much as women do.

Life is a journey of self discovery, one we’re ALL on. And while, yes, you can go to the nearest bookstore (or amazon.com) and buy a book titled, “How I Became a Millionaire”, we’re asking you to go on the journey with us.

We live and breathe YOU. When you tweet us inspirational tweets on Twitter and we Retweet them, we do so because WE, too, need to hear the words we whisper to our readers. {We did an entire free ebook on 50 our most favorite inspirational quotes}

We want to be living proof that our message is worthy of being spread.

As the company’s CEO, I can tell you, I have never felt more support than I do right now, being apart of this team. That is what we aspire to see our community grow to.

We are mapping out the women we want to become and helping each other grow into those women.

The Indie Chicks have a lot more planned: Exclusive Google+ Hangouts (where you can jump into a video chatroom with us), Podcast, YouTube, Collaborations, Indie Dick, Contests and Giveaways, and much, much more.

I personally want to thank you for supporting us, for inspiring us, and for sharing our message. Please, email us and suggest article topics or people who have inspired you {So we can try to interview them.. and so they can inspire others}..

Chiara Mazzucco

Chiara is the Founder and CEO of Indie Chicks, Inc. She's a published author of The 9 Mirages of Love, and is working on her second book, But First, Me. You can find out more about her by visiting her website, or can email her to get in touch.

  1. Yes, Chiara, YES! THIS is why this project is so essential – I saw in a vlog yesterday that whether it’s a book, or a work of art, or a piece of music; the creator of the work’s energy manifests itself through the work and reaches the reader/connoisseur/listener.

    When I first approached you to contribute an article, my goal was to be of highest service to you and The Indie Chicks, so I could help elevate the platform higher because I FELT the energy you all put into the project. Being of high service to our readers is the point from which I personally continue to contribute.

    I always have and always will feel privileged to be a part of this uplifting, liberating work. I’ve no doubt that there are no limits to success, especially because of the energy and love infused in this inspirational space.

    Here’s to reified dreams and fulfilled ambition!

    Love you all!

  2. You mean I’m not writing these articles from my four poster bed while being served by scantily dressed adonis’?

    I love this letter to our readers for so many reasons. Firstly, I love our team. I don’t know how I’d make it through some days without our constant chatting. Second is because it’s so true! We understand. We get it. We write these articles because it’s what we need, what we want, where we need to improve.

    NOBODY is perfect, least of all us, BUT when you put us all together, when we build each other up and encourage one another, then anything is possible. We work our asses off for each other, for you, for US as a collective community because I, we, you, deserve it.

    Huge amounts of LOVE to all of you.

  3. Thank you for this! Although I understand the message of The Indie Chicks and where you are coming from, I think it’s good to reiterate that that people with struggles (like me) are welcome — That when some doses of inspiration fall flat this is still a good place to hang out and perhaps find different kinds of inspiration. And that people can come here and not be shamed when their bad-ass-ed-ness is in the shop. Not all of us walk out of pages of the traditional female print magazines, not all of us aspire to that. So thanks for all you do, and for including all.

  4. Damn, I feel so much better about reading your website now that I know other guys do too! Have to admit – you ladies are a guilty pleasure of mine and you def. get the boys over at iSTZ Inc. through some rough days at the office. Please keep on doing what you’re doing and when you’re ready to launch your Indie dick series keep our… er, us in mind!

    learn. prepare. survive!
