Home is THE most important place on Earth and the reason I was inspired to become a Construction Manager. I’m Monica D. Higgins, Remodeling Expert and Founder of DontRemodelWithoutUs.com.
My proven process and expert knowledge have been featured by HGTV, eHow, This Old House Magazine and more. People have described me as the Suze Orman meets Angie from Angie’s List of straight talk about home renovation planning and contractor hiring!
I shared my idea, the project you see below, with people I trust and was encouraged to apply for High Tide, a start up competition. Out of more than 100 applicants…my company made the semi-finals!
While my company was not selected as a finalist on March 6th, I still need your help creating my project.
Remodeling activity is up for the first time in six years and I want to help homeowners avoid the dilemmas most of them face when it comes to remodeling, as well as show them numerous money saving tips and smart strategic tips for remodeling success.
What is my project?
My project is creating Remodel Smart™, a series of online remodeling courses (ala Craftsy or Lynda.com), that help homeowners who want to intelligently plan and execute a major remodel avoid becoming the next remodeling horror story.
I love YouTube as much as the next gal, but I don’t have the time to sort through thousands of videos to find quality content that actually teaches me something. Sound familiar?
My Remodel Smart™ online video courses solve that problem. They’re designed specifically to provide you with the best learning experience possible so you can avoid budget overruns, construction delays and shady contractors. These smart remodeling courses are taught by me and will be available to you anytime you want for as long as you want. No scheduled class times. Online. At your fingertips. On demand.
By sharing my proven process and expert knowlege with tens of thousands of people online, I will be able to help them get their projects done right, on time and on budget.
What is my project trying to acheive?
My project is trying to prove that people will buy an online remodeling course that helps them acheive remodeling success.
What I Need
Making a top notch online remodeling course is not as easy (or inexpensive as it sounds). I've estimated that it will cost nearly $30,000 to create an online remodeling course with the talents and abilities of a team:
Instructional Designer to adapt the content of the book to an online course
Writer to write the course
Director to create the online course
Cinematographer to make the course look really good
Editor to present the course in continuity (introduction, overview, objective, etc.)
Web Developer to code the onine course
Admin/Project Manager to assist all members of the team and make sure they stay on track
I am set up for Flexible Funding. By exceeding my goal, I will be able to create additonal courses for the Remodel SmartTM series.
