Week #2 Update
We just hit 100 backers ten mins ago! Woo Hoo! It’s been an amazing 2nd week! We are now 1/3 of the way through the campaign, and are 73% funded. Amazing! Backers, you are the best!
“Tell Me…” is taking off. There are offers to translate it into Korean and German. Bloggers and podcasts have reached out to write and talk about it. Brett Gadja who produces the smart & engaging podcast “Where There’s Smoke” (http://wheretheressmoke.libsyn.com/podcast) interviewed me yesterday. Thank you Brett! Check his podcast out—you will not be disappointed. I’ll keep you posted on when the segment on “Tell Me…” airs.
I have emailed a portion of you .pdfs of print and play 50 card pilot decks. Backers will be trying the game out this week at an executive team-building workshop, a yoga retreat, a camping trip, a game night, a book club, a weekend with in-laws, group therapy, and with friends. At least those are the ones I know about. I am excited to hear how it goes for you all and your about ideas about the format, content and design. If you don’t have a .pdf pilot version of 50 cards and you want one, please email me through Kickstarter or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Last Thursday, I was delighted to meet a new person Walter Link (http://global-lead.org/about/), as he embodies what “Tell Me…” is all about. Deeply connected to his heart and humanity, he communicates from an authentic place in himself. I was even more excited to hear that he teaches this authentic way of being to thought and action leaders around the world. He has worked with civil society organizations and companies, educational and public institutions, social entrepreneurs and creators to support them in becoming more humane and sustainable, innovative and effective for the past 30 years. I created “Tell Me…” as a small fun accessible step to get people more comfortable connecting with themselves, listening deeply, and expressing authentically. I was buoyed by meeting a global influencer who sees when leaders are more connected to their humanity and communicating authenticity which he calls “human moments”, their institutions thrive and humane work environments and community influence prevails.
Yippie! Let’s see what happens next!
