Highlights of this Session Include:

  • Four easy to answer, yet critical questions you’ll need to tackle in order to craft an impressive and credible Kickstarter bio.
  • How to establish yourself as a trustworthy creator, even if you have no professional credits to your name.
  • Examples of great creator bios!
  • Plus: An update on the ComixLaunch Course and my biggest Kickstarter launch ever.
