Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
The only potential risk I can foresee is if I am suddenly attacked late at night by squirrels that resent being stereotyped as janitors.
But seriously... it may take a short while to get the project fully paginated and prepared for the printing presses. As a former commercial printing expert, I know that it will require some time to schedule press runs, to acquire raw materials for the printing run, and to convert files to Raster Image Protocol for the web presses. This will require some patience and understanding, but it will be well worth the wait!
Other than that, I'm ready to go... I've got a great product and lots of professional experience in all the right industries. So, please give generously!
