Hi All!!

When we kicked off this campaign, there were so many butterflies. Would people back this project? Would anyone care? Even the Kickstarter crew asked us, "How are you going to get a bunch of frugal people to pony up?" We weren't entirely sure we could.

900 BACKERS. 900. Are you kidding us? We had a hunch that our community was just like us, "valueists". Taylor and I spend money on things we truly value. But we couldn't be completely sure... until now. And that's why your support means SO much to us, we understand what this project means to you.

So, while we go shake the humble off us and get back to work, we wanted you all to know how excited we are to have the funds available to rock out through post-production. Our new assistant editor started THIS MORNING to help us get footage organized and ready for our lead editor and director to bring this thing home over the next few months. Maybe we can get Hans Zimmer on the phone? We've been shooting for the stars since day 1, why stop now?! Anyway, things are humming along over here. If you haven't supported yet, jump on this train! Every dollar will be put to use! If you have, THANK YOU. Thank you, thank you, thank you. 

Lastly, you may have missed a new reward level we recently released. "Your Money or Your Life" level basically gets you all the goodies, and an hour consultation with Vicki Robin herself! This one is worth every penny.
