Dreaming of Glamping

We exceeded our $25,000 pledge goal this morning. None of it was easy or would’ve even been possible without the support of so many of you. Still kind of hard to believe at times. I had my doubts and low points. I’ve learned so much from the entire experience. I am excited to apply crowd-funding campaigns in the future, as we get to opening new glamping destinations over the coming years.

Times are changing. The traditional ways in which we did/do business and raise capitol are also changing. New business models are doing amazing things in non-traditional ways. A lot of what we've learned about traditional ways of doing business are also changing. I ran into a Forbes article just yesterday talking about major consumer culture shifts taking place and the death of brand loyalty. It was a lot to process but a real eye-opener as to the reality of doing business in this digitally infused day and age. I encourage you to look it up..

I am still not sure how I feel about it all, or the general culture shifts taking place at the moment. Life is hectic enough to have to think about all that. I just wanted to create a lifestyle where I could be in nature and create spaces for other people to do so comfortably. How many times can you really recreate a story about a new glamping business?? At least 100 apparently in this day and age. ..

I admit it was fun. I enjoyed the creative side of it, but It feels that even creativity can take its toll on you. Thanks for watching. I hope you’ve enjoyed the show as much as we’ve enjoyed creating it. We’re all living in public now and we’ll see where this crazy, chaotic, horrifyingly beautiful experiment in democracy takes us......
