Why should you listen to Crowdfunding Uncut? Because I’m asking the same questions you want to know. I know what it feels like to fail at crowdfunding. I also know what questions to ask, and what to do to raise over half a million dollars on Kickstarter and Indiegogo. As I’m also advising Crowdfunding campaigns, I need to keep up to date with what’s working and what isn’t. Questions that will get answered on this show: what crowdfunding platform is right for me? What can I do to have a successful product launch? How can I get 1000 backers for my project? What really matters? What if I have a small budget? What happens after crowdfunding? I will share with our best interviews showcasing the campaigns processes, failures, critical lessons learnt and actionable strategies showing YOU how to get your project funded. This is where project creators get funded.

"Do One Thing A Day That Scares You - Eleanor Roosevelt"

This quote is the backbone of a website and concept formed by Till H. Gross, Comfort Zone Crusher .

Personally, I've been a fan of pushing my limits. Everytime I say I can't do something, I make an effort to get that out of my vocabulary. The word can't is a dangerous word. It's the reason why many of us are not happy where we are in life, yet alone happy.

Till has been a student of psychology since his fascination with therapy. He has both studied in university and from some of the best minds in the field today.

 

What You'll Learn... 

1. What the heck is a comfort zone?

2. How your comfort zone is impacting you more than you think.

3. What can you start doing today to push it, or get rid of it all together?
