We’re getting it done!
So, I woke up this morning and saw that we are at 56% of the goal. I still can’t find the words to express my reaction and feelings to this number. 56%, with 25 days remaining in this campaign, is something I never imagined. I am so filled with gratitude to all the people who have either backed this project or shared it with others. I have had many important conversations with people this week, and it’s clear to me that I am on the right track with this campaign as well as this book.
I wanted to share something as well with all of you. The last thing I have ever been comfortable with is asking for money. I have always been fiercely independent and determined to make it on my own. However, this project has taught me that I cannot accomplish this goal by myself; it’s going to take a really large community to make it happen. Slowly throughout the week I have been pushing through my comfort zone and asking people to back the project, not just share it. Honestly, it’s not an enjoyable experience! But you know what? This is not for me or about me – this money is dedicated to producing a book that I truly believe will ultimately help protect our children. I can get behind that any day or night. So remembering the true reason for this whole project is the key to break out of my old comfort zone and go for it. I am not going to be smooth or overly confident in my efforts, but I’m going to do it nonetheless.
Thank you again to all of you who have supported Invisible Target. To those of you who haven’t yet backed this project…(gulp)…please choose a reward and back this! There, not so bad
Have a great day everyone!
