Week 1 Update to my Backers

Dear Backers, 

 Today marks one week since I launched my Kickstarter campaign and so I wanted to take this moment to thank you all so much again for joining me in this effort! I am so appreciative of your support and so excited to be on track. To be at almost 25% with four more weeks to go is fantastic, thanks to you! 

 At this time, I would like to ask you for any recommendations, ideas or comments you might have on how to better promote the project, offer more interesting rewards, have a better cover page...or any suggestions about how I can reach my goal. 

 Some of you are in business, some of you are in sales, and some of you have supported other any tips you might have..I would love to hear them! 

 As you probably know, the way Kickstarter works is that if I don’t reach my $15,000 goal by September 18th, I’m back to square one. I will not be able to keep a cent of your pledges. SO, any and all of your ideas are welcome as this is my first time doing something like this! 

 On a fun note, I’ve attached a photo that I received from a junior high school friend from Fairfield, Tom Whede. Its amazing, we reconnected on Facebook after all of these years and he sent me this photo along with several others. It really brought back so many you can see now how it all started.

Best Regards-
