About

Tracey Pridgen is one of only a few African American female contractors in New York City. With more than 15 years of experience and a multitude of certifications and training, her goal is to give back to her community by showing others how to complete their own home improvement projects through an interactive online television show called, “I Did It My Damn Self.”

“I Did It My Damn Self” (IDIMDS) instructs women and men who are not mechanically inclined how to complete home improvement projects. The show will feature Tracey visiting viewers’ homes to help them complete a home improvement project while instructing viewers on how to manage their own DIY projects. She’ll teach individuals how put up curtains, paint, install flooring and more, so that they can proudly say, “I DID IT MY DAMN SELF!”

With the help of Tracey's personal and professional network, she has much of the resources needed to create her show. Once her project is fully funded, she will be able to begin video production and creation of her online series.

IDIMDS looks to inspire homeowners, especially women, to complete many home improvement projects without the need for hiring an outside contractor. Tracey will also use this platform to help people understand that it doesn't take a large team to make simple upgrades or alterations to their homes. In the end, the homeowners are empowered to take what they've learned from IDIMDS to master their own home improvement projects without making a huge investment.

Risks and challenges

The biggest challenge Tracey faces is ensuring that the materials necessary for each home improvement project can be purchased prior to filming each episode. Planning ahead and having the resources available is critical to the success of any DIY project.

Tracey will also need to hire a talented but affordable videographer and production crew that is capable of filming and editing each episode.
