Jimmy Palmiotti, Brian Schirmer & me w/mc Chris Brandt

Jimmy Palmiotti (All-Star Western, Hype), Brian Schirmer (Ultrasylvania, Blackjack Ketchum), and I, moderated by Chris Brandt (Hero a Day, Independents), did a panel at Wondercon in 2013, in which we breakdown the mysteries of running a kickstarter and being an effective creator in the new entrepreneurial age. Both Jimmy and Brian bring incredible wisdom to the conversation, straight from their multiple kickstarter successes. So, if you're thinking of running a campaign, this episode has you covered. From planning and preparing, through the day-in-day-out of managing, marketing and succeeding at your fundraising goal. Throughout, Chris Brandt helps keep the whole thing relevant and focused, making sure everything sticks to the message that you CAN make your own thing, while providing numerous ways to go about that.

Literally the most takeaway packed episode of this show so far. Wall-to-wall wisdom (and wisecracks)!

Thanks very much to Jimmy, Brian and Chris for letting me record this as a podcast. It's twice as pertinent now as in 2013!
