Dr. Wright’s Crowdfunding Favorites for November 2014
I consider taking part in crowdfunding projects a rewarding cause for I can help in new projects and ideas to reach the market. Not only it’ll help the lives of the campaign’s creator but also the whole society as these projects and products will definitely benefit everyone. Amidst all the crowd funding projects that I’ve wrote about, I have my four personal favorites. These are the Purple Pocket Book, Forever Homes for Foster Children, Banana Wave is the Future and Lulla Doll: Sleep Companion for Babies & Toddlers. The Purple Pocket Book is a domestic violence app for the state of Georgia that helps the victims to find shelter locations, legal assistance as well as questionnaire to determine if someone is in a potential abusive situation. It aims not only to aid the victims but also to prevent others to become one and to extend its helping hand throughout the whole country.
Forever Homes for Foster Care promotes the non- profit organization, Find Families in Mexico, that helps the foster children to find their biological families giving them another chance in their lives. Banana Wave is the Future campaign features an innovation of producing milk- like beverage from bananas. Sounds amazing, right? With this project, vegetarians, gluten- free eaters and lactose- intolerant can now enjoy the taste and creaminess of milk with Banana- wave beverage. This project is on its final stages and seeking for help to formally launch it in the market. Lulla Doll: Sleep Companion for Babies & Toddlers is a doll that records the breathing and heart of a mother at rest providing a sense of security for the child helping him / her to fall into deep and restful sleep. The doll’s material can also absorb the scent of the parent helping the child gets familiar with it. Lulla Doll is best for premature babies to begin the bonding process with their parents. All of these campaigns can contribute to our society once they are all up and running or available to the market. With crowd funding, these projects will push through bringing success to its creators and the society will reap benefits from it.
The worst advice I’ve ever heard about writing books!
The worst advice I’ve ever heard about writing books begins with the assumption that writing the book is the only reason for the writer to complete the book. Most writers have an idea of what they want to accomplish with their book. Some reasoning is transparent, like entertainment or information. In most cases the author wants their book read by as many people as possible. This brings into play a whole galaxy of “must-do things” that goes beyond finishing the manuscript.
Few people write books just to see their name in print. For those few people, the Internet offers a broad array of publishers and prices, more precisely printers, eager to fulfill the need. However, entertainment and information requires mass penetration of the probable market for whatever the topic covers. In these cases, beginning at the end can be more appropriate. Developing and refining an audience for the book, starts the journey on a successful path.
