I saw this great Kickstarter interview on Bleu, the entrepeneurial-style musician who earned $40k to start a record label. What I love most about this interview are Blue's five steps on how to ask for money:
- Start out reminding people who you are and why they like you.
- Tell them your story (it'll be different for every person).
- Ask them for money.
- Tell them what they are going to get for their money.
- Tell them "Thank You".
There are a million different ways you can put those five things together, so make it your own.
