Sure and thanks for asking because it's given me an opportunity to think about this in more detail.The support will vary as the project progresses. Right now, I’m informing my personal and professional networks about this project in the hope of building a community of early supporters (ideally current/aspiring entrepreneurs and book lovers who who would find my book interesting). Sharing my project with a friend or family member would be the best way to support me at this stage. Next week, I plan to launch a one-month pre-sales campaign on Kickstarter to help offset the costs of publishing the book. Project backers will have the opportunity to buy a copy of the book in advance and I’ll use the pre-sales to cover publishing costs. I'll share the official Kickstarter announcement through my mailing list next week.Once we close the pre-sales campaign, I’ll continue to share my journey / lessons I’m picking up with the self-selected community. and continue to build hype towards the official launch date. At that point, engaging with the posts and sharing your take on topics I discuss would be the best way to support me/this project. And of course sharing any posts that you find interesting with a friend never hurts.:) @rachelclifton I'm also trying to get the hang of this tagging system haha
