Project Description

You were meant for more than a ho-hum, drag yourself out of bed, muddle your way through the day and go to sleep to do it all over again life.

We are indoctrinated from a young age to sit in our seats, face forward, be quiet and fall into line. Do what we are told, and for God’s sake…just be normal.

Grow up. Get married. Make babies. Live a mediocre life, just like everyone else.

Spolier alert: God meant you to have and be more.

I mean, sure, you were supposed to have the kids and the husband…but life was never supposed to be mediocre.

It’s scary to move out of that familiar place into a more bold way of living, but I’m here to tell you that you can do it.

The Just Boldly Go Project can help all women get to this place.

Our mission is to help women everywhere learn how to live a life they can't wait to get out of bed for EVERY. SINGLE. DAY.

So many women are just living life as a ho-hum, boring as crap, zombie.

You wake up, get through the day, go to bed and do it all over again ad infinitum. There is nothing exciting happening, and you don't even do things you love doing anymore.

We want to change that.

The goal of The Just Boldly Go Project is to give all women the tools they need to chase their goals and passions. If you want to create a business, we can help. If you want to learn new skills, we can help. If you want to just learn how to tame the chaos in your life - we can help with that too. 

The primary goal of The Just Boldly Go Project is to create an online community to support the dreams and goals of women everywhere.

 

For women everywhere, we will create

  • An intuitive app & web experience: we want to create a platform to help you get all the best of The Just Boldly Go project in one place.

  • A directory of vetted women-owned businesses

  • A digital library of our webinars and digital content so you can watch it anytime available online

  • Mom "Field Trips" in major cities around the country - day trips to inspire creativity and getting out of your comfort zone in a super safe way.

 

Locally, in Defiance, Ohio, we will be creating Maison Rouge - a co-working space with weekly events, event rental space and meeting rental space. 

  • An inspiring and gorgeous space to work, meet, and connect 
  • A community of warm, hard-working and future-oriented women who are established and aspiring leaders looking to make a difference 
  • Laptops and wifi access loaded with all the programs you need to get your business up and running
  • Weekly events as well as opportunities for event rental space

Please note: Men can totally come hang out with us too - we love our fellas!

Hey. I'm Amanda, and I have a burning passion for helping women create a life they can't wait to get out of bed for Every. Single. Day.

I've been running a successful branding business for the last thirteen years, and my heart aches for women who put off their dreams until their kids are grown - only to discover that they don't know who they are anymore.

The time to chase your dreams is NOW. If you have kids, bring them along for the ride. You owe it to yourself, your kids, and the rest of us who need what you are offering to do this now, and not wait until the time is right - because I'll tell you the truth on this - the time will NEVER be right. The time is now, or it ends up being never.

 

Thank you for your support and the love you have shown us just by reading this far.

The Campaign FAQs

The Project FAQs

Why are some members not listed on iFund? And where can we see your total funding? Some women have purchased their membership in cash or during our events. These purchases are not logged on iFund.

The total funds raised will be updated on the front page of iFund daily.

EVENTS

How many events can we expect per month? We are planning to have (4) events per month.

Can members host events? Maison Rouge is designed with you and for you. We would love to work with you on ideas that you have for hosting an event for our membership. Whether you're testing a new idea or want to reach a new audience, this will be a receptive group.  

THE SPACE 

Where is the space? The space is on the corner of Jefferson Avenue and 5th Street in the heart of Defiance, Ohio.  

How big is the space, and what will it include? The space is just over 3100 square feet and will include a kitchenette, living room/lounge, study area, meeting room and restrooms. The space is flexible enough to accommodate a variety of events, from presentations for a broader audience to focused round-table discussions. 

Can we talk details? Like, will there be COFFEE? 

  • For sure, there will be unlimited coffee provided daily. 
  • Yes, you will be able to reserve the meeting room FOR FREE with a Full Membership. The schedule will be tracked, and if there are scheduling issues we will adjust our policies accordingly. 
  • Yes, you will be able to print, scan, and receive packages, at additional cost to your membership.
  • Yes, you will be able to bring in food, as long as you take it with you at the end of the day. 

MEMBERSHIP

Are there membership requirements? Annual membership is required, and will be effective January 2021. 

Are members allowed to bring guests? Only Full Members are allowed to bring guests for the purposes of meetings. Member-guest events will also be offered throughout the year. 

What will the business hours be? Maison Rouge will be open Monday - Friday, 7am-4pm. These hours are subject to change and will be evaluated once the space is open. 

FUNDING

What if you don't reach your funding goal? If we fall very short of reaching our goal, we will refund membership contributions. If we come close to our goal, we will review our business plan within one month to evaluate scenarios that would still allow us to move forward. If within one month we have not implemented an alternative scenario, we will refund membership contributions.

Website Audit

You may have a sneaking suspicion that your website isn’t doing it’s job.

Not that it’s not operating – it’s just not bringing your dream clients to your doorstep.

That’s a real problem. And you should probably do something about it.

I’m offering a full site audit of your website to handle this issue.

I make you a video outline of me going through your website, highlighting the parts that aren’t working (and congratulating on the parts that are).

All from a user experience (UX) perspective.

At the end, you will have actionable items that you can either take to your website manager and have them handle it, or you can handle it – or you can hire me too.
