The Kickstarter Dilemma

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.
