What is 100 for 100?

I've always wanted to create something deeply meaningful for others, but I've been too scared to be honest and vulnerable enough to try until 100 for 100, a terrifying foray into opening myself up in the hope it inspires you.

The project started with a simple premise: every day for one hundred days I would write at least one hundred words in the form of an email newsletter. After completing all 100, I decided to take the next level of risk by creating this Kickstarter campaign for a book version.

What do people think about it?

"With every story, I found things that I related to, that I dis/agreed with, that I was envious of, that I was inspired by. We forget sometimes that nobody is perfect, and our imperfections make us uniquely who we are. Justin's emails reminded me to trust myself more, and that bad days can still lead to positive things." – Ruzanna (original subscriber)

"Why would you ever want to know more than you could ever ask about someone? Because Justin's thoughts are not only hilariously and wholeheartedly raw, they're relevant." – Vicky (original subscriber)

"I wake up every morning looking forward to reading Justin's new entry; it's as if it takes away some of the dread of performance-based work that I have to do and replaces it with joy." – Zach (original subscriber)

Why get the book?

This project isn't about making money – I might break even but probably not – and it's not about reaching thousands of people. It's about me giving you 100 small pieces of my heart, trusting that they'll form to make something new and hopeful and beautiful inside of you. That's really what 100 for 100 is all about. 

Risks and challenges

The writing and design for the books are completely finished, so the only risk in delayed process would be an error in printing or if there are significantly more pledges than expected and I have to adjust plans for shipping.
