    Indhi Rojas is the founder and creative director of Anxy, a magazine about mental health and our “inner worlds.” Last month Indhi announced she has stopped publishing this multi award-winning magazine so I thought it would be great to hear more about Anxy's story. We talked about why she started a print magazine in a digital world, validating ideas and growing audiences on Kickstarter, and how to make the decision to end a well-loved and well-respected magazine.
