Comic creator Chris Beck has a problem most would be thrilled to have — his first Kickstarter launch funded faster than he could have ever anticipated! But now he’s struggling with what to do for stretch goals, and how he can maintain backer interest and enthusiasm without breaking the bank with a ton of unplanned for expenses. Luckily, he has a round table of veteran ComixLaunch Pros facilitated by Tyler James in his corner, and in this special mastermind season Chris and YOU will get a master class in savvy Kickstarter stretch goals!
Highlights of This Session Include:
- A common mindset mistake creators make when it comes to Kickstarter stretch goals.
- Stretch goal math, and what first time creators need to know about keeping momentum going during a launch.
- The roundtable’s top recommendations for stretch goals that don’t break the bank… and actually make bank!
- Plus: It’s launch day for ComixTribe again… and it’s going QUITE WELL!

Okay, creators, I have a question for you…
Right now, how many people are there on this planet who know exactly what it is that you’re trying to create this week, this month, this year, and in the next five years and in your lifetime?
And how many of those people ALSO want AND can help you to achieve those big dreams… and are regularly thinking about what they can do to help you on your mission?
Right now, do you have other creators in your corner who you trust to offer good, knowledgeable support and advice about the issues and struggles you face as a comic creator?
Are these creators who are always going to tell it to you straight, even if it’s not what you want to hear, but what you need to hear to level up?
And are you meeting with these people on a regular consistent basis to talk about these things?
Seriously, how many people do you have in your world right now who fit that full description?
If the answer is “NOT ENOUGH”, then I want you to imagine that there was a small group of high performing creators, who you really respect and you admire, and they constantly had you on their minds.
Imagine you were meeting with them regularly for mutual support, brainstorming and accountability.
Would that make a difference in your creative business and in your life?
If so, then I want to invite you to learn more about the ComixLaunch mastermind groups starting up in the NEW YEAR.
Just go to ComixLaunch.com/mastermind to get on the interest list. We’ll be accepting applications for just a few weeks only in December to fill brand new groups who start meeting in January.
A ComixLaunch Mastermind Group could be just the thing you’re looking for to have a massive creative breakthrough in the new year.
So again, ComixLaunch.com/mastermind is where you’ll find all that information.
You’ll get on the interest list and potentially get into an awesome ComixLaunch Mastermind group of your own, and hit the ground running with us in January.
Write down three smart stretch goal ideas you got from this session.
