How to Crowdfund

$14.99 USD

Asking people for money is awkward at best, terrifying at worst. I’ve been there. As the founder of Ladies Get Paid, I’ve taught thousands of women to ask for their worth during a salary negotiation and now I’m excited to teach you how to ask for $ for a project, business, product, cause, performance, etc. Anything you can raise money for, I’ll show you how! I’ve run two successful crowdfunding campaigns that raised more than $130,000 from over 2,000 backers and I’d love to share with you what I learned. You can check out my recent campaign here.
