Believe In Yourself But Don’t Be a Fool (or Why I Use Kickstarter)

Believe In Yourself But Don’t Be a Fool (or Why I Use Kickstarter)

Growing up, my mom used to tell me “Believe in yourself,” and dad would add, “but don’t be a fool.” I took that to mean that I could do anything, but that doesn’t mean I can do everything or that I can do everything well. When I started my business, I quickly learned that my parents were right. I can, and have, put an amazing team together. I can, and have, do some amazing work for clients. But I can’t do my own taxes, regardless of how many times I read the IRS regulations.

I can’t do everything in my personal life either. My parents got divorced when I was in college and a few years later my dad developed Early Onset Alzheimer’s. And I found myself trying to do everything for my dad. Not only was I providing care, but I was moving him, taking care of his finances, determining if he was eligible for disability, and convincing him that he could no longer drive.

It was a difficult time, and it was in part because I was “being a fool” and trying to do it all on my own. I searched for one resource, one checklist guide that could guide me in the journey and I found nothing on practical matters. That’s why I’m writing a guide now, so other people can benefit. But I can’t do it on my own. I need funds. This is why I’ve placed this project on Kickstarter:

Please take a moment and review. Even $1 pledge makes a difference. With the necessary funds, I can finish this project and make it available for other people so they have a one-stop source of information for the most difficult of decisions. Thank you.
