Episode 14 - Pitching my kickstarter campaign to my girlfriend (1:18)

Have you told your ideas to your girlfriend or your mom? They love everything!

Walking in Hampstead, London, on a beautiful sunny morning, with my girlfriend, Penelope. We’ve been together for almost 2 years, and she’s seen the whole Kenophania project from day 1.

What does she think of my Kickstarter idea? I decided to pitch her my crazy plan.

- We’re gonna launch 2 campaigns. One of them is going to be launched now, in October, and it’s gonna last 60 days, and then another one is gonna be launched in November. Simultaneously.

Initially I was planning only one campaign. Why launch two?

- Given that in November there’s this Kickstarter Commissions project, where they will feature a few projects to their audience, and all it needs to take is for a project to be launched between the 1st and 30th of November, and also for their rewards to have some element of interactivity.

And then, the frightening question:

- What do you think?

- Umm… Emm…

Wanna know the rest of the story? 2 weeks later, and I still haven’t launched anything. Penelope’s reply punched me in the face.
