Are you wondering what it takes to launch your project on Kickstarter and Indiegogo?
How is it that I raised $1.2 million in the last year while training for and completing a Half Ironman?
The answer may surprise you (and not at all flattering)….
Terror and threat of public ridicule.
As a Crowdfunding advisor, my results are public. The campaign succeeds or it fails and it is 100% on me.
Same goes for your launch.
When I get hired my ass is on the line.
If I don’t have a successful campaign then I am not much of a Crowdfunding advisor, am I?
But here’s the thing…
I have learned how my brain works and how to motivate myself through the utter lows that come with entrepreneurship.
If I put my neck on the line, then I get things done.
If I don’t then I end up sloppy and depressed on the couch covered in Cheetos (nom nom).
Do you know how to motivate yourself? If you do, then you are 95% of the way to the finish line!
If you don’t, then I might suggest figuring that out as Step 1.

We talk about how my very first campaign was an utter failure, raising $17k, and how we were able to turn around and raise $500k with the same product, just by changing our strategy and tactics.
And we go over the most important things I have learned, like…
I want to show you there is no magic to what I do. It takes work. And for me, I use fear to drive me rather than block me.
What is going to drive you to hit your funding goals?
