Stellar Babies™

Our Journey from conception to Reality

Fueling My Dream!

 

It has been a long hard journey and the Stellar Babies™ still haven’t made it into the market place, however, I haven’t given up. I’ve entered many contest… and lost many contest. I’ve attended many seminars and joined several Meet Up groups. I have a goal and I am focused and I will continue to persevere until we finally make it out of the gate.  It has been nothing but bad news and disappointment throughout this process that I often felt like giving up. But I clear my mind and try to put all negative thoughts aside and continue to keep my eye on the prize. This steadfastness (or stubbornness depending on who you ask) has finally put me in a position to be in the right place at the right time.  Not too long ago one of my Meet Up groups posted a solicitation for applications for the Fuel Your Dream project.  This project was going to assist up to 20 applicants with their crowdfunding campaign and I was very excited about this since I was planning to give crowdfunding another try (I was still in the research phase and this came along just in time).  The first time I tried crowdfunding was over 2 years ago and it failed miserably. I worked it alone and didn’t know what I was doing.  I just assumed it was like that Field of Dreams movie, you know “If you build it they will come” but you know what nobody came. 

 

That setback was soul crushing but I soldiered on.  I happily filled out my application for the fuel your dream program and just knew I was going to be one of the 20 because my idea was awesome and I was awesome and the day I saw the solicitation was awesome so this was meant to be. I sent in all the required information about me and my project and waited anxiously during the three week period while the judges made their decision.  This was the longest three weeks ever. Finally the day they were due to contact me via email came and I stalked that email box like a cat stalking a bird, I was on it dog on it and completely ready to read my good news. Over and over I checked my email but nothing. The day ended and there was no good news email. The next day I contacted the necessary people to find out what happened figuring they might be behind in sending out emails and I was told they had completed sending out emails and if I didn’t receive one then I wasn’t selected.  Aaargh! Not again I thought. This was my time but once again more disappointment. I regrouped and continued my research on crowdfunding because this time around I wanted to do it right. About a month had past and I received a call.  It was NYC Business Solutions, the people running the “Fuel You Dream project” and they must have finished with the first 20 people because they said they were now going to assist me in preparing my crowdfunding campaign.  Yippie! I was so excited I became giggly all day… now it is my time and I am going to make the most of this opportunity.  I am working with a wonderful counselor and she has given me a lot of wonderful advice. It is nice to have assistance this time around instead of trying to go it alone. I am assembling my team and looking forward to the launch of my campaign, perhaps this time around there will be a positive outcome. 

 

I’ve decided to do a soft launch by advertising the campaign before it officially launches in order to build up interest and garner support for Stellar Babies™.  I’ve created a Thunder clap page so if you are interested in supporting me with my journey either by donating, getting a perk, or just spreading the word please join my Thunder clap page and you will be notified when we officially launch. Also, don’t forget to follow us on Twitter at @stellar_babies and like us on Facebook.  I would like to thank you in advance for your support.  Wish me luck…I am going to need it.
