REWARD TIME!! I posted an update on my Kickstarter asking for your help to reach my Mother’s Day goal of 25% funded. As of midnight on Mother’s Day, I was $55 short, but by the next morning, I’d made it, so I’m posting the promised sample chapter here as a thank you. Obviously, 25% is far from finished, so I’ve made some changes to the rewards.

THE GOOD NEWS: My friends at CJM Financial in Ankeny, Iowa made a private donation outside Kickstarter, making it possible to ship books in time for the Send Off Series game in New Jersey (my homeland!)

The CHALLENGE: I still need to fund my Kickstarter to launch my book tour. I’ve spent 20 years collecting these stories, 3 years writing this book, and now I want to spend my summer taking my book to the streets to share it with soccer teams and supporter clubs around the US. I want to hear your stories and share my “Passionate Soccer Love” with you! SO…I made the rewards more affordable to have me do a reading with your group and now you know the book will ship before the World Cup. Please help spread the word about my book and my Kickstarter campaign. I really appreciate all your support. Please keep sharing!

I challenged Entrefest that if they shared my project and helped me get to 50% funded by midnight Wednesday I would come to their event on Thursday. It's a stretch, but if there's any community that can do it, it's Iowa entrepreneurs. I went to Entrefest 2009 when I owned my store and had an amazing time meeting individuals and organizations that helped me grow my business then but also got my creative juices flowing and I am still using what I learned there with my book and as an activist in my River Bend neighborhood. I'd love to join you all this year, but I'm a bit busy with this book project. You get me to the point where I can take a day off, and I'm there. Good luck to all the Iowa Entrepreneurs headed there!
