I am scared to death! This is a huge leap for us. Friday we hire our videographer for our crowdfunding video. This is so exciting and extremely frightening. If we don’t take this chance, I will always regret it. Today we put in an offer on a location we want contingent on zoning and financing. Why am I so scared, the worse thing that could happen is we don’t get it. Keep your fingers crossed, whomever comes across my silly little blog.
Wow, the holidays are over… Thank goodness.
We have been antsy to start our campaign on Indiegogo, no more excuses, time to buckle down and get the video made and upload so we can hit the START button.
After a week of merriment and family we are exhausted, but more than ready to get this project off the ground. I have a few backgrounds I have made for the video and now need to learn some editing software. This is getting so real, I am scared to death, putting us out there like that. I am hoping it doesn’t affect Steve’s current job, my biggest worry, but we can’t not try.
I want to live in one of those funny houses.
I have taken a short break on my campaign and I feel guilty. There is nothing else I can do on my own. I really need to learn a video program and get this last part done, so we can go live. I need some funny talented help on that one. I wish I still had my famous youtube guy two houses down from me, I bet a Rhett & Link video would bring in the $$$.
Well, it is time to finish up and clean off my desk. I leave for Black Mountain Saturday morning to spend the week with my family. I can’t wait!
Have a wonderful holiday! Peace.
Looking for a videographer to do our campaign video. It is easy to find someone to just point and shoot the video, but I want something that stands out and is creative. I think I am going to have to learn how to create video. Sounds like fun, but I’ll need to be a quick study. We want to go live with this soon. I did find some cool back drops for it. Time to sift through the free movie maker programs now. If anyone can suggest one, it would be greatly appreciated.
We met with an agent yesterday to get an idea what we need to get going on obtaining the property we want. Closer and closer we are getting. The husband was very excited after the meet, so hopefully this will get his motor going full steam. I have started getting the elements together for our crowd funding video. I must say, I get the fun part of this venture, because this has been a blast.
I need a someone to help with the video or I might go with a streaming picture frame type video if I can’t find the equipment to shoot one. I do have the editing software, just need a camera… iPhone maybe? I have been watching a ton of successful campaign videos, Steve will do well with that I am sure of. He should have his own show on the foodnetwork, he definitely has the personality for it.
Another day closer…
I almost have to step back some days when I am working on the business plans and other items to go with it. I think I am getting too emotionally attached to it and we haven’t even brought it to fruition. What if I can’t make it happen? Will I be crushed? Probably, but not as crushed if I didn’t try. Maybe it’s the process I enjoy, this is fulfilling and I am enjoying the work.
Today, I am working on the menu. Well, the physical one at least, we have been planning the menu for months now. Now, this is the least hard of the work that needs to be done, it is what I do for a living. If it was all this easy!
Have an amazing day!
This is the start to our journey. We are documenting the process while we work hard to start our own restaurant. We are excited and scared to death, but definitely in it for the long haul.
Please join us in this exciting adventure.
