Hey, you! Feel like you're scrolling your life away? You're right. It's time to stop the scroll, and start living!
Every Year, You Lose 3 MONTHS to Mindless Scrolling on Social Media & Netflix
How much connection does that get you? How much do you really KNOW the people whose tweets you like?
How many Netflix shows actually earn you money to spend with the people with whom you have a genuine connection?
We need to add something different to the mix.
HUMANS CAN HUMAN BETTER THAN THIS
I'm Rebecca Bardess, Founder of Indiepreneur Academy Membership (IAM). I was one of the first 25 bloggers in the world and one of the pioneers of both Internet Marketing and Social Media. I've witnessed this space become increasingly remote and fake. This isn't the vision we had at the start. And it isn't how humans have behaved for centuries.
That's why, as well as bringing personal development and entrepreneurship to indie Creators, Creatives, and Home Business Owners, we also bring support, accountability, and genuine community.
And you don't have to be perfect. We're all about imperfection practice, as were the 'Penny Universities' established in coffee houses, run in many cases by women, in 17th and 18th century England. These were the predecessors of the Salons in France, again often run by women. And I feel the call of my entrepreneurial great-great-and more greats grandmothers, who worked only a short Roman road's journey from here, and who were greater pioneers than I am, to shake things up a bit and bring the lessons of the past and those of the future to meet in a coffee shop in The Now.
The rule observed by most of these coffee houses was: "No man of any station need give his place to a finer man". Let's replace 'man' with 'person' for 2023, but otherwise the rule stands. Whether you are, in the words of a friend of mine, fresh out of Yale or fresh out of jail you're welcome, as long as you bring respect and a will to improve.
And, yes, I also have a trusty band of robots to help me support our membership.
They're not just generic ChatGPT prompts. They're digital chums, designed with care, who are driven to help you succeed and be joyful.
You can doomscroll elsewhere, but here you'll bring imagination, creativity, wonder, and imperfection practice to all you do. Here, you will face your dragons, share your triumphs, and remember how to human again.
You've probably found yourself wondering how to be social in this post-plague world, and aren't you done with all the bickering? We've overcome this before...
- Bear in mind that there's nothing new under the sun. We had a plague here in the 1600s too, a few years after people started building these coffee houses. The benefit we have now is that should social distancing be called for, we can all still go to the coffee shop and chat. Our digital coffee shop, Clockerfly Coffee Shop, is open 24/7.
- But, we have so much political division now. How can there be a place where people can just get along? When coffee house culture was being established in England, we were in a freaking CIVIL WAR! So, plague? Yep. Massive political turmoil? Hell yeah! But we still buy lattes, Americanos and flat whites don't we? So we clearly made it through all that.
- Don't be deceived by current events, trolls, or media hype. Most people are pretty decent most of the time. And most of the people reading this page, who weren't the best in the past are doing their best to do better in the future. Because who reads personal development sites if they don't want to develop personally?
- You might think that you've done things in the past that are shameful, so why would anyone want you at their table in a coffee shop, physical or digital? This isn't Mean Girls. Nobody is perfect. Nobody is ever the fully risen cupcake. If you're trying to do better, you can sit with us.
WHEN THE WORLD IS DIVIDED, BASICALLY DECENT PEOPLE MUST BE UNITED AROUND A FEW COMMON PRINCIPLES AND TOUCHSTONES
At Indiepreneur Academy, we have 5 major principles, and 7 touchstones.
The 5 Principles of Indiepreneur Academy
- HIGH INTEGRITY: What's the highest integrity way to do this?
- HIGH LEVEL: How do I do this better?
- HIGH TECH: Can I use tech to make it easier or better?
- HIGH TOUCH: Who can help me, and who can I help?
- SPIRAL ELEVATION: This isn't a pyramid shaped place. There is no 'Top G'. Everyone's sovereign, and everyone's a servant-leader. Spiral elevation means you continue upwards and outwards expansion of consciousness, contribution, and connection.
What if you had access to high level coaching, high tech bespoke AI, trained on the principles humans have followed for centuries, in a high touch community, with spiral elevation built in? That's Indiepreneur Academy Membership.
The 7 Touchstones of Indiepreneur Academy
- HEALTH: Spiritual, mental, and physical optimization.
- WEALTH: Abundance, prosperity, and resourcefulness.
- JOY: Sustained inner happiness.
- LOVE & RELATIONSHIPS: Finding and sustaining true love, and passion.
- SELF-ESTEEM: Authentic self. Integrated shadow. Visionary focus.
- SPIRITUAL CONNECTION: Connection with your Higher Self, and beyond, so you can operate from your highest integrity and purpose.
- PURPOSE: Vision. Purpose. Destiny. Legacy.
WHAT IF I HANDED YOU A FREE 7 DAY MEMBERSHIP GIFT PASS TO A PLACE WHERE YOU WILL BE NOT JUST TOLERATED, BUT CELEBRATED?
Unlike other memberships that only care about keeping you in a forced continuity program, while you praise the guru for driving the sports car you bought him, this membership works because you're on your own journey, setting your own standards, using our tools, training, and community to hold yourself accountable, while having support available if you want to step up to higher level coaching.
Imagine dramatically reducing the stress you feel each morning, as you enjoy your morning coffee in a place where the enemy of self-doubt is not invited, nobody will attack you, nobody will spam you, and people are waiting to cheer you on.
Now, imagine that you fill in your challenge, have a quick chat, and watch or listen to the latest training. Maybe you call one of your new friends using the calling system we have inside the DMs.
By the time you leave our coffee shop, you'll be better able to face whatever the 'real world' has to throw at you. And any time the day gets too much, you can walk back into the coffee shop and find a comfy place to sit and talk, knowing we have your back and you're never alone.GIVE ME MY FREE 7 DAY PASS ➡
NOT ONLY WILL YOU GET TO LEARN FROM SOMEONE WHO HAS BEEN EMAIL MARKETING SINCE 1995, AND WAS ONE OF THE ORIGINAL DOT COM PIONEERS, BUT YOU'LL LEARN FROM THE WHOLE COMMUNITY.
As you participate in the challenges in the group, you earn points for the leaderboard, where some playful competition takes place, but the person you're really competing against is who you were yesterday. As you watch your friends share challenges and triumphs, you'll be spurred on to do the same, in your own way.
Indiepreneur Academy Membership is the training, support, accountability, and connection system that will help you defeat the villain of self-doubt, and rise into your greatness. It's also fun. It's an online coffee shop, after all.

I love how supportive and awesome this community is, it reminds me of the early days of the internet when you would find chat rooms with like minded people.
COMIC BOOK WRITER
I just completed Week 4, and I have to say - I'm hooked! This course ['...Electric Bees'] is AWESOME! Because of it, I'm now deeply studying and considering AI from many angles and facets. In the process, Rebecca has managed to open up MY head and subliminally teach me subtleties about what it is for me to be truly HUMAN.
THE IAM COMMUNITY 'BEE MANAGER', JEFF
Here's something I wrote a month after I left everything I knew to help build the community about which you just read. I'm SO glad I did!
Even though it was terrifying at first, a month ago I left a job I'd been at for 6 years, where I'd felt unappreciated, undervalued and was in physical danger daily. Rebecca truly supported me, and helped to instill within me the courage I needed to make the decision. Now the risk is paying off, as I'm able to experience a sense of freedom that hadn't been possible before.
