InnerSpiration Cards - Inspiring your values

What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

These photos and videos provide a detailed look at this project’s development.

 

Many of us are living our lives feeling unsatisfied, chasing happiness through self help books, apps and other fads claiming to make us happy. Our energy, and money, would be better spent on living a fulfilling life, focusing  on what is important to us, our values, and living our lives in accordance with them.

We don't often realise what our core values, the things that drive us, are. Influences from our peers, parents, celebrities, or anyone we respect, can interfere with our true values and set us on the path according to what we think we should do, rather than what we actually want to do.

InnerSpiration cards can help you uncover your core values so you can start living a more authentic life and focus in the things that are important to you.

 

 

 The InnerSpiration card pack contains 52 cards, with a value word on one side and a picture to inspire you on the other. They can be used by individuals, coaches, facilitators and team leaders to help uncover the core values of yourself or the people you work with.

Tell your friends about our campaign

 

  

Use your values to help you reflect on whether you are living your life authentically. What things are you doing because you feel like you should, or to please other people? Though our core values are mostly fixed, significant life events might cause us to reevaluate what is important to us. Perhaps you are feeling stressed or overwhelmed. What values are you missing in your life? Use your InnerSpiration cards regularly to help you live in harmony with your values.

Use your values to help you make decisions, such as starting a new project, activity, or searching for a new job. 

Do you have friends or teenage children wondering what next step to make in life? Use your InnerSpiration Cards to help them understand what is important to them.

If you are working with a team and have lots of staff changes, or the team doesn't seem to be working at it's best, it might be time to re-evaluate your team values.

 Development of the tool

I am a Learning and Development professional and coach, and I developed this tool to use with the people I work with. I realised that with such an easy to use tool other people could get the benefit of uncovering their core values, and working towards a more authentic and fulfilled life.

The words

There are hundreds of value words out there, many are variations on the same theme. I've narrowed my list down to 52 words that I think are widely applicable. But you don't need to be constrained by these words, you can use them as a starting point for your own values.

The pictures

There are plenty of values lists out there, and other sets of values cards, but none combine the words and beautifully shot, inspiring pictures of InnerSpiration cards. Research has frequently shown that our memory for images is vastly superior to our memory for words, so the pictures will help you remember your values. The pictures are metaphorical, and metaphors can change the way we interpret ideas. If the picture doesn't quite meet your idea of that value that's great, because it will make you think about what that value means to you; you define it for yourself.

Budget

I have set a goal of £1,600, which is the minimum amount I need to produce and ship 100 packs of cards.

Manufacturing

I have obtained a competitive quote from Ivory Graphics, a British printing company, with an excellent quote tool that explains the various options. Ivory Graphics were the manufacturers of the prototype pack seen on this page.

 

I'm Kat, and I am a trainer, facilitator, and coach. I love quick and simple tools to get people thinking. I am also a big advocate for using visuals and graphics to engage audiences. InnerSpiration Cards have also helped me to reflect on my core values. The things that are most important to me are Belonging, Family, Analysis, Learning, and Authenticity.

I couldn't have put together this project without:

  • Fred Coster - Photoshop Guru and design partner
  • Ivory Graphics  - for their excellent service and patience with my questions (and typos!)
  • All the bloggers and Campus folk who have shared their Kickstarter wisdom
  • All the coaches and friends whose brains I picked
  • Pixabay - for excellent free images
  • Ben Sound, Memories - Video music
  • I'm Kicking It Forward - pledging to reinvest 5% of any profits back into other people's Kickstarter projects
  • And finally, my two amazing daughters for their forbearance and amusing themselves while their parents were busy

 

 

 

 

Risks and challenges

This is my first Kickstarter project, but I have spent a lot of time researching the risks and challenges.

My product is already designed, though flexible enough to make any changes that arise from feedback quickly and easily.

I have already obtained quotes from manufacturers and have a working prototype already made.

My biggest risk is if I am overwhelmed by orders. I have currently planned a print run of 100 packs, which is the minimum I need to make the project viable. I am planning to fulfill the shipping myself. However, in the delightful event that I have an unexpected level of interest I may need to investigate 3rd party fulfilment.
