LOE 042 | Kickstarter Tips + Shining Your Light w/ Karen Gunton | Podcast

Podcast LOE 042 Kickstarter Tips + Shining Your Light Karen Gunton | Lighthouse Revolution Illuminate Oracle Deck | Business Coach Shannon Bush

Ever wanted to understand why Kickstarter campaigns can be so powerful and how they can help you to launch something significant in your business?

If you have, or even wondered about the power of crowdfunding in any way at all like I have, then this episode of Law Of Effortlessness Podcast with Karen Gunton is going to be a delight and inspiration to tune into.  I first came across Karen a couple of years ago in the online space, like I do many of the guests I invite onto the show.  I was immediately drawn to her strong messages of empowerment and self leadership and responsibility and intrigued by what she went on to refer to as The Lighthouse Revolution.

When she published her first book in 2016 I watched from a distance while she championed a Kickstarter campaign, her first, to support the launch of her book.  Now, she’s spreading the beams of light even brighter and is in the middle of her second Kickstarter campaign and achieving incredible success.

Having been asked many times about crowdfunding as a source to raise capitol for a business or launch and read about many success stories, I was keen to get Karen on the show to talk with her first hand about her tips and lessons for success and to find out more about the expansion of her business with the upcoming launch of her new oracle deck; Illuminate.

I have no doubt you’ll be as inspired as I was by the conversation and take a lot away from all we talk about.  There’s an abundance of practical strategies you can put into place to create more effortlessness, to shine your light, stand tall, support your mindset and be in a genuine place of service.

Are you already in Facebook groups? Are you actively engaged in the group? Are you known and seen in the groups that you are in?
