Kickstarter Ends Midnight Tonight! 

It’s a rush to the finish line! At just 135% funded, my final stretch goal is to be 150% funded so, if you are as excited about my book as I am (as well as many of the other funders who have shared their enthusiasm), well, here are some ways to continue to help me:

  • Tell your staff, friends, and colleagues 
  • Share it on your social media channels (and please use #BrutallyHonestTheBook
  • Tell your students – even $1 donations are welcome (and very cute, they always make me smile) 
  • Talk to your local AIGA or Ladies, Wine & Design chapters (or other similar networking/professional groups) and see if they are willing to tell their membership about the Kickstarter (many AIGA chapters have already done this) 
  • Consider increasing your order to get additional rewards – hey, this book would make a great gift to your staff! 😏 
  • Start a book club and consider the book club reward level (this may be a reach, but, hey, it doesn’t hurt to ask) 
  • Send good vibes out to the universe – seriously, I believe in karma 

As you know, if we get to 150% funded, I will hire a professional indexer so that the book will not only be enjoyable and insightful to read cover-to-cover but will also be a great reference tool for the future.


Core77 posted the last of the three excerpt from Chapter 8 of my book: “It Is Not Cold Calling” – check it out here! And, if you haven’t already, check out the first two parts here and here.

Sending love out to you all as well and my gratitude for your ongoing support and enthusiasm. 💕
