Risks and challenges
Every project always carry a risks and challenges! My main challenge is to move from digital publication into print, it's a massive leap for me and also it something I always wanted two years ago. Producing a physical magazine is no easy task hence I need a great amount of awesome supports to help to bring my dream come true. The risk is fairly small, all the costs will cover the printing costs.
