MY FEMININE BUSINESS: WHY I DIDN'T USE KICKSTARTERS
Oct 03, 2017
The Journal Deck
A Biz Riff with JD Founder, Alyssa--This week you're getting a behind-the-scenes look into why I didn't use Kickstarters to crowdfund even though it's the number 1 crowdfunding website AND an inside look into my feminine business mindset. This might not sound like a self care topic, but I assure you this decision came with a lot of headaches and ultimately taught me a lot about honoring myself and others.
THIS WEEK'S GIRLTALK:
-Masculine versus Feminine business model/approaches
-What is crowdfunding and how Kickstarters works versus Celery for pre-orders
-Why no sale is small and "enoughness"
-Reframing success and being open to new possibilities
A lot of people assume there is only one way to crowd fund, and while this is not an episode bashing Kickstarters by any means, this is my reasoning for why it didn't energetically feel like the right approach for starting this company, The Journal Deck. I'll break down my top two reasons and explain the difference between masculine and feminine businesses models and how that related to my crowdfunding platform options and ultimate decision. BONUS JOURNAL PROMPT AT THE END!
