Hi, this is Marie 👋🏻

# Who am I?
I'm an 👩🏻💻 indie maker from 🇫🇷 France. I’m trying to make a living from products I create like Threader and IP Man. I also have a blog with my partner in crime, twomakers.io, where you can follow my journey. Alongside, I'm involved in a project I deeply care about. It's called Women Make.

# What is Women Make?
Women Make is an open community that I created so women can have a place to find support in the maker space. It is open, meaning everyone is welcome to join. I believe we can only make a change together. The more diverse the better.

But it's more than that. With Women Make, I want to put women at the forefront by highlighting their stories and promoting their work in ways that don't always happen in a male-dominated field.

You should signup and join us!




# What do I spend my time on?
What I call "day to day work":
- Moderating our Telegram group
- Animating our Twitter account: share news related to women and diversity in general, share our members' work like launches, blog posts, new products, publications, etc.
- Writing our newsletter: which includes reaching out to new members personally to include them in the "new members" section and gathering all the recent activity of our community
- Helping/advising some of our members in private conversations
- Reaching out to the shy members and giving them the confidence to participate in the community
- Putting women at the forefront: for example, when one of our members launches a product I pin a message in our Telegram group + write a tweet with @women_make_ + RT that member's tweet + add it our PH collection (if it's a Product Hunt launch). That's the very least I do for every woman launching.

Sometimes I also take care of special events like our 30 Day Challenge which was a big extra amount of work. And I started a podcast.

That's actually A LOT of work.

# Why supporting me?
This community is free so everyone can join, whatever your financial situation is. However, I put a lot of time and efforts in this project. Basically, by financially supporting me you're allowing me to keep going with Women Make. You're also contributing to make women more visible.

I'd also love to improve the website to make it a useful tool for us, an extension of our community. Right now I can't afford to spend too much time on this. But with your help, that's something I could do in the future.

Goals
$212 of $1,000 per month
When I reach $1,000/month, I'll start to work on the website. Right now it's a landing page presenting Women Make and allowing you to signup and join our Telegram group.

I can make it a useful tool for the community. There could be some public and private features (members only). Here are some ideas:
- Display/search for our members: easier to connect with other women and find help on a specific subject
- Showcase our members' work: projects, product launches, articles, etc.
- A map showing where the members are located, if you want to meet
- News curated by the community (about women, diversity or any other interesting topic)
- A section with exclusive deals for our members, to help them build their products
- A list of useful resources we often use and that can help others
The site would work alongside our group and the Telegram bot.

I'm also listening to all suggestions coming from the community but I think these are the main point right now.
