Hi, I'm Rachel and thanks for visiting my Patreon page where I'll keep my Wrench Army updated with monthly bonus material, exclusive content, live Q&A's with me and of course more Yippee-Ki-Yay moments in the shop!
Most of you know me as Gearhead Diva, my wrench-venturous Youtube alter ego that I started a while back with automotive how-to videos which then became a broader DIY/maker lifestyle brand covering everything form workshop projects to tech, geek and even VR videos.
And then some of you may know me from a TV show called "All Girls Garage" on the Motor Trend network where I took my driveway car repair and modifying skills to the tv screen. While I continue to work in front of and behind the camera, Gearhead Diva has been truly special in allowing me to try out new skills, share my many fails and facepalm moments with you, and showcase the projects that come as a result.
I may not be able to tell you how to do something but I sure can tell you 100 ways not to do it!
I launched Gearhead Diva to push the boundaries of the traditional how-to format, not just for projects but the stories behind them and finding new ways to bring you directly into the action. It's like pulling up a chair and sitting at my table for a realistic view of the build process - with real-time chat during live streams for sharing personal stories, lessons learned and practical tips and advice not found on any script.
I never forget that it was viewers and enthusiasts like you that helped turn a hobby into a full-time business and Patreon allows me to create extra content, premium content for your eyes only - the Wrench Army - and have a place to interact directly with you!
"What are you really going to do with my hard-earned cash? Buy a pony?!"
Tempting... but the first thing I'm gonna do is pay to have that sass washed off you, and then:
- Creative Freedom - Today, ad revenue rules change more times than there are explosions in a Michael Bay movie so you never know what happens in all that smoke. Supporting Gearhead Diva on Patreon means we can set the rules for the better ...for everyone - with shows and builds you want to see.
- Support Staff - Having an extra hand with editing means I can run the cameras longer to bring you even more content - from experiments, shop hacks and tutorials to more in-depth builds with practical take-aways you can apply to your situation.
- Bigger Builds - Blades dull and sandpaper wears out over time. This, coupled with material and tool costs limits the size and scope of our builds. With your support we can dust some really cool ideas off the shelf and make them a reality.
- Production Gear - Like old tools that still get the job done, some of the original cameras we used to shoot our very first videos are still in the arsenal. But we love technology and believe it has the ability to connect us on a deeper level. That's why we've invested in 360 and VR180 cameras to put you directly into the action! Your help allows us to make the necessary upgrades to keep live-streams running smoothly, footage sharp, and conversations flowing.
"What do I get out of it?"
First, I'd like to take a moment to thank you for reading this far. At just $4.95, you not only get my sincere thanks but an exclusive look at what happens behind the scenes - from planning and testing to parts prep you don't see on camera. You'll also find us to be quite open to your suggestions for introducing new rewards that matter to you.
"I'd love to help but money's tight right now..."
No problem - really! There are other ways you could help:
- Give us your eyeballs - Well, not literally. Just by watching our videos, streams and participating in the chat lets us (and others) know you're interested in our content.
- Share our social media posts - Reaching more people helps us grow.
- Amazon affiliate - We frequently provide shopping lists for our projects with affiliate links. Buying ANYTHING on Amazon from those links gives us a small commission without costing you ANYTHING EXTRA.
Thanks so much for checking out my page!
