Say It With Gratitude – Update Week of August 8

I wanted to give you an update for my Say It With Gratitude Kickstarter launch which is set for September 6, exactly 4 weeks from yesterday.  This has been a fun, but very intensive, passion project of mine and I can’t wait to share these updates with you.  It’s been an exiting week.

I mentioned last time that I’m putting together The Ultimate Gratitude Summit where I’m interviewing over 30 incredible people who are opening up to share their personal struggles and stories and how they’ve used gratitude in their lives.  Over the last week, I conducted 6 interviews.

I’ll be releasing the interviews starting September 6th, the first day of the Kickstarter launch.  If you haven’t done so yet, please register for The Ultimate Gratitude Summit here. 

On Friday, I officially picked out my printer, Yellow Dog Printing, which is local here in Denver.   I had a meeting with them to go over the project and to talk about the designs that I will be using for the first set of cards for the Kickstarter campaign.  Before that, I had a meeting with Lori at Coda Coffee to pick the designs for the cards (which you can see in the picture below).

We received about 20 drawings from kids in Guatemala through Pencils of Promise, but we only picked 5 designs to start – our 5 favorite designs.

Today I went and viewed the proofs of the cards with the designs we picked and I can’t be more excited.  I mean to see all my hard work that’s gone into this, and getting so close to launching is really what life is about for me.  Check out the cards!

I also have been working with my Kickstarter expert, Brandy.  She happens to also be my graphics designer for this project, and she showed me her design of the Say It With Gratitude logo.  I didn’t giver her any directions – she came up with her own vision and design for the logo and I absolutely love it!

The other big news is that I finally hired a videographer named Blake!  He’s local here in Denver and did the video for another Kickstarter campaign earlier this year with fitness personality Emily Schromm that was very successful.

I’ve written an outline of the story we’ll be telling in the video, but tomorrow we will be meeting for the first time to fine tune this.

So as you can see, I’ve had a lot going on this past week, but I’m happy with the progress and the team I’m surrounding myself with.

I’ll be back next week for another update.  Thank you for taking this journey with me.

With gratitude,

Scott
