One week ago I seriously considered ending my crowdfunding campaign after the world seemed to be turned upside down! I was at 88% and thought well I can make this work. Although I was feeling very grateful to have got so far I was so discouraged because I didn't want to look selfish asking anyone for support during this crazy time.
After talking to some of my friends who happen to be business coaches and entrepreneurs they encouraged me to keep going. So I did. It was halted for a few days but after keeping up on sharing things started moving a bit and now thanks to shares and contributions from believers we have moved my meter up to 97% now I'm at $2330 of my $2400 goal. Just $70 to reach 100% with 5 days left in the campaign. Most of that came yesterday actually! Bringing me to 78 backers. This is incredible to me. I am so lucky. Plus all of the money is going to local businesses (people) that need the support too! That also keeps me going.
Its been an emotional and uncertain week for everyone. I wish I had a magic wand to make it all better for the world but clearly I do not. All I have is belief. I believe we are going to get though this together! This "social starving" (coined by Mitch Biggar) and pause in our lives will be over soon. We Will get back to normal or find a normal and rebuild. My hope is that we all do this with a fresh perspective. Life is fragile and I think we have been shown that we are in fact a global community. One thing we can do is continue to support one another.
Thank you all for taking the time to be a part of my musical world. If it wasn't for you I couldn't do this. So I need you, love you and REALLY want to keep you so I will work hard to make you proud.
Thats all for now. Stay safe,wash your hands, stay home, cuddle your loved ones and practice gratitude whenever you can.
