When I started this venture, I planned to post twice a week and do an in-depth analysis on launching a Kickstarter campaign. What has actually happened is that I lose track of time, and I do not get to a blog post because I get caught up in other aspects of launching the campaign. As a result, I have decided that I am going to write a shorter post each day from 4:00-5:00 p.m. In these posts, I will give a review of my day and how I spent my time. These posts will go live the next morning.
Since I have not written a post or updated my information for the last week and half I am going to bring you up to speed. I have a couple of things going on:
#1) I have scraped the original design of the backpack because I started to hate it. I have gone back to my original concept and ideas, and I am working with an incredible designer to bring my concepts and ideas to life. We are almost ready to send the bag off to the manufacturer to get samples, and I plan to share pictures of the bag with you soon.
#2) I started a podcast called Entrepreneur Stories, which I will post a link to later today. This podcast is going to serve two purposes. The first purpose is for me to learn from successful entrepreneurs. The second purpose of this podcast is to build a community around the brand. One of the biggest hurdles that Kickstarter campaigns face is building a community around their idea prior to launching. This podcast is going to be one of the things that I work on to build a community around the backpack.
As a side note, I would love to hear whose entrepreneur story you would like to hear. Please message below or send me an email with your ideas.
