Words of Advice for Others Growing Their Business?
“Our last Kickstarter campaign, we failed. We did not do enough preparation, and we couldn’t meet our funding goal. This time we did a LOT of work before the campaign. There’s no substitute for hard work and preparation. It doesn’t ensure success, but not doing so will guarantee failure.
