Kyle here. We all make mistakes. When it comes to starting a business for the first time, I can assure you that plenty of mistakes are made. Admittedly, Nick and I end up procrastinating from time to time. With so many different tasks needing to be done, some of those tasks slip out of mind. Although Nick and I had a lot of the Kickstarter campaign done and ready, we didn’t get around to actually submitting it for review until this past week. I suppose we assumed it would just be a simple, painless thing to mark off the checklist. Having that assumption, you can imagine our shock when we were informed that our Kickstarter campaign was denied. Unfortunately, our reviewer misinterpreted various elements – so I quickly crafted an appeal in response. But even with the appeal sent, there was no guarantee that it would be seen in time for our intended launch date.
After a night of stressing and thinking about how to pivot around this obstacle, we were lucky enough to hear back the next morning. Thankfully, our clarification was taken to heart and our campaign was approved! Moral of the story? Always be on top of it. Do your best in preparation and organization to minimize the occurrence of mistakes. But when some mistakes inevitably do happen, focus on moving forward. As originally said by Albert Einstein, “Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance, you must keep moving.”
With all of that being said, the Kickstarter campaign is still on track. Everything is coming together, and we’re so excited to be able to go down this avenue as planned. September 15th is almost here!
P.S. You may have noticed that the website has been redesigned…all thanks to Nick! Looks good, right?
