The crowdfunding for Fringe boutique has begun!
It is never easy to ask for money, but sometimes that is the only option. I've become rich in experience, but it has been a challenge to save anything close to as much money as I am going to need to open my dream shop. I will definitely be seeking a loan of some kind--in fact, I have a meeting with a banker tomorrow afternoon--but I still need enough cash so that I can qualify for lending. And that is where you, my friends, family, and fans come in! As awkward as it is, I am asking those of you who believe in me to contribute to my start-up fund. My goal is to raise at least $10,000, which is only a fifth of what I actually need. Anyone who makes a donation of $50 or more will receive an invite to an exclusive VIP opening event. However, any contribution of ANY SIZE is so appreciated!!
Take a look at my Go Fund Me page for some background and vision for the shop. There's even a little video I made, which you can watch below, or on the campaign page. I want to send a big THANK YOU to those of you who have already made such generous contributions over the past few days. Thank you all for your support and encouragement. Thank you for believing in me.
