I thought about the bartering route and quickly realized there is more leverage and potential with going the fund and friend raising route of crowd funding.
This is one of the most crucial steps in the success of this project. In my opinion, it’s not a good idea to begin to say you’re going to do something if you have not adequately prepared. Especially, if it involves money. This is not a bad thing or should be used as a deterrent. The major issue with me is maintaining credibility. Win or lose. After the project, goal fulfillment, or whatever we’re trying to do, we must maintain our character. If we, promote something we know isn’t going to happen it taints us for future endeavors.
So, as I take one step closer to bring the nuts and bolts to the event in Jacksonville I’m making sure I have the beans-lol.
In many ways I feel like I have already prepared myself by writing about:
If you don’t believe in it how can you expect someone else to do the same? It will not happen.
Yesterday, I mentioned a site with specific focus on bartering. I saw were many people used and had great success with bartering sites. At this time, it’s just not a good fit for me. It’s always good to know what is or is not a good fit with you. Not to say that you can’t adapt a later time.
