I raise money for lots of projects, but I don’t use crowdfunding campaigns too often (the last one was in 2012). Today’s the last day of my campaign so I’m pulling out all the stops. I only need $412 now to complete it, so I’m 100% certain it will happen.
This project, a non-fiction book titled “The Art of Motivational Listening” is exciting because I get to bring what I have to share with the world, and it’s not a how-to book. It’s not listening-for-dummies. The essays I’ve been writing expound upon the art of listening as an art form — that means rather than talk directly about it, I’m using lots of metaphor to describe what I’ve learned in the last eight years. You don’t explain a poem or a joke directly or it loses its punch. To explain the art of listening requires the same finesse.
If you want a preview of the book, just peruse the archives on my blog. Some of the blog posts will be edited and others will be eliminated. Some of the content won’t see the light of day on my blog.
The campaign, which you can find here, ends at midnight, Eastern time, on June 30. Everyone who contributes will get at least one copy of the book.
Many thanks to those who’ve already pledged!
