Recently I was visiting a client and friend, Ryan Evans CEO of Inboard Sports.
We were hanging out grabbing coffee and breakfast to fuel up for the day and scanning our emails. We both chuckled simultaneously as we had a similar email in each of our inboxes. A mutual friend had referred one of their friends to us. We’re using “friend” awkwardly here to protect the innocent.

These were all natural reactions that escaped as we reviewed the Kickstarter campaign. We both called the friend in question and gave him our honest feedback, but in doing so, we also had the idea to film our ideas on a successful Kickstarter campaign.
In between intense strategy sessions and lunch, we turned on the camera:
