Well, my savasana continued throughout the week. It was just hard to get motivated about the next step in this journey. It was one of those weeks where opening day for Yoga-urt felt miles away.
The good news is I have some new motivation today. My Saturday pilates class is near a possible Yoga-urt location that I’ve been eyeing for a few months now. I think it would be a great space for the first store. I can’t walk or drive by it without picturing people sitting outside, talking and relaxing with their community. It made me start to think about a Kickstarter campaign.
Kickstarter has been mentioned to me from the very beginning (1 and 1/2 years ago) as a way to raise money. I have always resisted because it seems to me that this isn’t the typical business/project that gets funded. I usually see music, film, or art projects on there. Would anyone really care enough to pledge money for Yoga-urt? Did I really want to put it out there for the world to see? Could I raise enough? In my dreams, it spreads like gangbusters and my friends, family, and yoga community pledge all the money I need and more. However, that is just one scenario.
I’m now at the point where I think it’s worth a try. Why wouldn’t people want to help? This is a business that will make people feel good. My intentions are good. I have a plan. I think it’s time to work on my Kickstarter campaign. See what I come up with and if it is strong enough, then I’ll go for it. I want to make sure that I have no regrets and tried all that I could to get the money to start this thing. I’ll never know if I don’t try.
