Do You Want Motivation That Doesn't Suck?
Your dreams kick ass, but often it feels overwhelming to achieve them because most self-help resources are fluffy, long, and boring as fuck.
It's hard to stay motivated with cheesy posts, 500-page books, and 2-hour long webinars being stuffed down your throat.
We Didn't Want to Create Another 'Normal' Inspirational Product...
You could spend your entire life aimlessly absorbing 'normal' inspirational resources full of regurgitated 'woo-woo' bullshit, but you'll never bring your dreams to life. In a way, they are more of a distraction than anything. We love rainbows and butterflies too, but they will never help manifest your visions into reality.
So, We Made a Deck of Hilarious, Unfiltered Cards to Motivate Your Creative Maniac Mind in 10 Seconds or Less...
The fastest way to achieve anything is by taking immediate action, so we created a sweet ass deck of motivational cards to turn your shitty day into a productive smile-fest in just a few quick seconds.
You already know what your dreams are, you just need a quick, sexy reminder when you start to slip off track...
Introducing: The Sweet Ass Domination Deck - Affirmations to Motivate Your Maniac Creative Mind
The Sweet Ass Domination Deck is a 60-pack of hilarious, unfiltered bursts of motivation to help you:
- Take quick action in every moment to bring your goals and dreams to life
- Dominate fear and resistance gremlins that try to distract, overwhelm, or suppress your progress
- Turn your shitty days into productive smile-fests in just a few seconds
- Unleash the creative maniac that you were born to be
The World's First Non-Woo-Woo Affirmation Cards
We love affirmations because they work. By using them, you can rewire your brain to subconsciously make decisions in every moment to work towards your goals. But, many people (including us) can't take them seriously because they are so 'woo-woo' and fluffy. A little woo is cool, but affirmations can be for hard MOFOs too....
So, we decided to create the world's first non-woo-woo affirmation cards, combined with unfiltered and hilarious bursts of motivation for creative maniacs like you who want to kick ass.
The Cards: 4.33" x 4.33", 400 GSM Matte Finish (thickest cardstock they offered)
The Box: 5" x 5", Matte Lamination with gremlins and UniSquids awaiting inside!
Affirmations on the Front and Jetpacks of Motivation on the Back
On the front of each card is an Affirmation. Read and repeat in your head. Then, read and repeat out loud. Feel what it's like to become one with the affirmation. By doing so, you are rewiring your brain to believe the affirmation is true, and you will subconsciously start making decisions that are in alignment with your visions.
On the back of each card is a burst of Motivation. These bursts are messages from the Universe to merge your mind with your affirmations. Study them and use them to rage forward within your creativity. It's the rocket fuel to reach your stars.
Where Did This Crazy Idea Come From?
Jason and I (Heath) both took huge risks in leaving our traditional careers and venturing into the unknown creative world. As soon as we quit our jobs in finance and construction, it was sorta like a shit-the-bed moment when trying to figure out how we were going to survive. We absorbed constant supplies of self-help resources, and it took us years to figure out that it wasn't doing us any good. The truest form of effective transformation is simply taking action towards a vision, and everyone is capable of this. The problem is we just FORGET to make the right decisions because modern life is insanely fast-paced and distracting.
But, if you can lose focus in a split second due to distractions, shouldn't you also be able to re-focus in a split second with the right reminder?
This is how the idea for The Sweet Ass Domination Deck was born. We wanted to create a product that could turn the most disastrous stressful breakdowns into productive creativity, all in the flash of an eye.
With our new vision of the deck, we still had no idea how to bring it to life because we only had 'normal' inspirational resources to work with.
Since this world didn't have the help we needed, we did what any maniac creative would do:
We blasted a rocket-ship packed with hippies into space, formed the largest floating drum circle in the history of the Universe, burned 1,111 bundles of sage, and used our mind-power to summon in Skid the UniSquid who presented us with the idea for The Sweet Ass Domination Deck: Affirmations and Motivation for your Maniac Creative Mind.
Your Sweet Ass Rewards
You can view the sexy product designs below the rewards section.
T-shirt, Poster, Sticker, and Mug Styles
If you want a T-shirt, poster, sticker pack, or mug... simply select a reward tier that includes the item(s) that you want. You do not have to select your style or size right now. We will survey you after the Kickstarter to get the details! If you want to 'add on' merch, see the al la carte section below the merch images.
à la carte Add-ons
**NOTE: TO ORDER AN ADD-ON - SIMPLY SELECT YOUR REWARD TIER AND ADD THE DOLLAR AMOUNT OF THE ADDON YOU WANT TO YOUR TOTAL. SO, IF YOU CHOOSE A $22 REWARD, BUT YOU WANT TO ADD ON A MUG, YOU WOULD ADD $25 TO THE $22 WHEN YOU CHECK OUT. YOUR TOTAL WOULD BE $47.00 ** (we will survey you after the campaign for sizes and styles)
How to Use The Sweet Ass Domination Deck
No rules dictate how these cards should be utilized. We encourage you to get jiggy wit' them, creatively.
- Close your eyes and let the Universe guide your hand to a card when the stress gremlins are attacking!
- Throw them up in the air like a maniac and let gravity pull the right card down into your lap.
- Draw cards to start deep, important conversations with other astronauts and strangers in your life.
- Tape them to your mirrors, refrigerators, computers, and dashboards.
- Hide them in your pillowcases, pockets, books, and undies drawer!
- Gift the magic of motivation by sharing individual cards and decks with family, friends, and strangers.
- Travel around the world with them.
- Eat, sleep, and dance with them.
- Create creative mosaic displays with them on your vision boards, walls, and office spaces.
We trust that the Universe will guide you to the card you need, at any given moment. Our intention is that after you interact with a card, you feel armed to make real changes and integrate the messages from spirit + your own knowing. It's created for you to find detailed messages within both the content and universal artwork.
However, under no circumstances should you hide them in your actual undies. (see video below)
Dos and Don'ts
DO travel with them.
DO eat with them.
DO work with them.
DO sleep with them.
DON'T crush your dreams. DO support us on Kickstarter :)
We printed a handful of digital sample decks and shared a few image files to see how people would react to The Sweet Ass Domination Deck idea.
Amelia Broughton (Authentic Relating Queen)
"These cards are pure magic. They are laughing-inducing, ridiculously creative, and energizing beyond measures. My excitement went through the roof when I opened the box. The visuals, the writing, the hidden gems, everything about these cards is thoughtful and fun. I want to see them everywhere I go! I look forward to drawing them when I need a boost, a laugh, and especially love sharing them with the people in my life"
Valerie Groth (Founder of The Ryan Banks Academy)
"As a therapist turned life coach, I've been exposed to what seems like hundreds of resources all with the intent of making people's lives better. So many of them miss the mark, and are a simple regurgitation of the same platitudes. The Sweet Ass Domination Deck stands out from the crowd. These cards are real, edgy, and as a result - impactful! Can't wait to start using these on a regular basis with my clients, and in my own life."
Tiffany & Chris Hunter (Location Indie Entrepreneurs)
The Sweet Ass Domination Deck is fantastic. We usually hate affirmations because they sound so "out there," but these make us feel like super-heroes without all the mystical bullshit.
Lena Elkins (CEO - Lena Elkins Coaching)
"To say that I'm obsessed with The Sweet Ass Domination Deck is an understatement. Everyone and their mother should have one."
Mr. Manfred (Professional Belly Rub Enthusiast)
"Everyone knows Woof Woof > Woo Woo"

More on The Founders
Hi! Jason Berwick and I (Heath Armstrong) are the founders of Rage Create. We both left our traditional careers to pursue our dreams in motivational product development, online marketing, and e-commerce. We've had mass ups and downs with failed projects, resistance, and other life hardships, but we never stopped taking action. Jason even delivered subs on his bicycle for a while to keep food in his belly, and here we are.. launching our first joint motivational project. Thank you SO MUCH for colliding with this page today. We are forever grateful for your help, our team, and this incredible creative journey.
Team Rage Create in Action (April 2018):
Special thanks to Jan, Jocel, Judy, Dannah, Alyssa, Fenny, and Lindsay who have helped brainstorm, design, create, and launch this project. You all kick massive gremlin ass & we love you.
Massive love to Ralphie Albert & Matt Kostan for answering 594839582924858 questions during the creation of this project. We owe you hours of slave labor and a peeled banana.
Product Development Timeline (Since Jan 2017)
There are too many prototypes to show, but here is a scope of progress over the past year:
It all started with a crazy maniac idea in January 2017 in Portland, OR.. scribbled out on this piece of paper in a tea shop:
Muse Channeling / Idea Generation / Writing (Jan-November 2017)
It took hundreds of hours to brainstorm and write the affirmations and motivational bursts for The Sweet Ass Domination Deck. This is a display of the first edition promo cards behind Heath's writing space directly after they came in the mail. Vision to reality.
A few cards being mocked-up with our design team (July 2017):

Why We Need Your Help
We will use the funds to support the initial production printing run of The Sweet Ass Domination Deck. The printing setup must be crafted individually which requires a large up-front expense on top of the cost of the cards, boxes, packaging and delivery. Producing a new product is always more expensive at the beginning until we are able to scale and order larger volumes at one time for each product. We've invested a lot already into the design, engineering, and sourcing of high-quality prints and manufacturing. All funds from this Kickstarter campaign will go directly toward the actual production of the Sweet Ass Domination Deck, The T-shirts, the posters, and the mugs. If we pass our goal, all extra funds will be used to offset the Kickstarter fees, credit card fees, project overhead, and year-long production investment.
We are forever grateful for your attention and support.
Timeline of Production: Shipping Starts in Late July
All of our production is lined up and ready to boogie, we just need the funds to place the bulk orders. Here is a timeline of our production plan:
Bonus "Spot the Gremlin" Game
We love games because, well, games kick ass. And, no matter how awesome things may get in life, an avalanche of resistance gremlins will always try and knock you off your mountain. But, if you teach yourself to spot them before they can do harm, you will never stop peaking. Because of this, we hid a gremlin on each card to keep you aware of the enemy. Can you find them before they find you?
THE RYAN BANKS ACADEMY
(The Young, Brilliant Ryan Banks)
As a team, we set a vision to help provide creative education for children who have suppressed opportunity. A close friend of ours, Valerie Groth, started The Ryan Banks Academy in Chicago, IL. to do just that! RBA will be Chicago’s first boarding school for inner city youth, and will be named in honor of a Chicago student who was a victim to gun violence at the age of 12 - a former student of Valerie.
After the Sweet Ass Domination Deck has been funded and Rage Create is officially launched, we will begin donating 10% of ALL net proceeds to the Ryan Banks Academy for all future Rage Create products. Thanks for helping us launch this campaign!
Risks and challenges
The Sweet Ass Domination Decks and other bonus Rage Create products are designed to be very simple to use and produce. We are confident that the deck production costs will be in line with our estimates after extensive talks with our manufacturers. The only costs that may vary slightly from our current estimates are transportation costs (shipping can vary). And even then those costs shouldn't be far off from our estimates. Plus, the angels and gods and pro wrestlers and space squids are all on our side. Ya dig?
If any bumps in the road occur, we promise to let you know about them and how we will overcome them to ship on time.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
