Empowering women to discover their voice
…affirming a womens voice exactly where she stands
“I don’t want to make money, I just want to be wonderful.”
— Marilyn Monroe
What is Chiczofrenic:
Chiczofrenic was coined one day when Dr. Laina Turner-Molaski was on a plane back from a conference and trying to work on her to do list, which was quickly spanning three pages. She felt with all she had going on in her personal and professional life she was driving herself crazy. And was doing it intentionally because she wanted all these things. Laina wanted to be a great mom, a great wife, a great friend, and a great businesswoman. She felt she should be perfect. She wanted to be perfect. However, the stress of trying to do it all was making her nuts. It made her start to think about what it was she was doing versus what she really wanted to do. Laina realized they were two different things. She had somehow started down a path years ago, she continued to follow out of habit because it was what she thought she should be doing. Why? At first she thought it was what others expected of her. But then realized it was more her own perceptions of what she thought others expected of her and if she were honest she put most of those pressures on herself.
As Laina continued to think and reflect about this it made her wonder how many other women felt the same way. Who have got caught up in the perceived pressures of society making them feel they should be everything to everyone at all times at the expense of who they are and who they want to be.
How can that be changed? She really doesn’t know but is hoping through bringing women together and sharing their own brand of craziness with each other they can better understand how to be confident about who they are and true to their inner voice. Women owe it to themselves and others around them. So Chiczofrenic came to be in the summer of 2009.

Get more exposure for you and your platform by being a featured contributor.
Being a “featured contributor” is not a paid position at this time. We are looking for women (and men) who have a story and want to give back by sharing that story with other women. The site will be promoted through social media channels and other blogs.
We launch nationwide in November 2012 and are looking for people now who want to go on this great journey with us.
As a featured contributor on chiczofrenic.com it is expected that you will:
*post 1 interactive, thought provoking question on your scheduled day
*post 1 blog on your scheduled day
*interact with the commentors to your posts
You may link back to your site and promote your own platform as long as its tasteful. We want our contributors to get just as much from this as the readers coming to the site will receive.
