Never Be Afraid to Ask. There is always something new to learn.
Three days into the campaign, I asked my good friend James Allen Smith for some critique about the campaign. I like hearing from folks about how to make things work, how to improve, how to flow around obstacles and get to the goal of a distant shore. At $1,300 dollars, $50,000 is still a distant shore. But we are hearty sailors, one and all and ready to go the distance.
James, who has been a part of about 10 successful Kickstarter campaigns, gave me some pointers about how to improve my pitch and make some course corrections. We will be doing video updates as often as possible, and you will see his great suggestions being put into action.
It is essential that an artist/person be self-critical about endeavors, actions, decisions...to see from outside what things really look like and act accordingly on what we can't see from up close.
Wow, 1pm already...where did the day go....blue skies await me.
