We got together, chatted about what I’m working on, and had a few beers. It was lot less formal than the other interviews I’ve had. We hit it off pretty well.
A few weeks later, I introduced them to one of my good friends, Kris Mortensen, to link them up to see if they could use his help for some video. Wouldn’t you know they hit it off with Kris too.
Fast forward a bit. They were telling me about their plans to run a project on Kickstarter, thinking they could raise $1,000-$2,000 to get a few of their magazines printed. Personally, I predicted that they could do between $10,500 and $12,000–it’s a cool project, and between the beautiful photography, clean design and layout, fresh approach, and engaging topic, they were definitively on to something.
Now, today. The magazine is fresh from the printer and their entire print run is almost all claimed. I keep telling Noah he will have to run another batch, but he doesn’t want to hear it. What a horrible problem to have.
