A. P. E. R. dot com slash hustle for your free fourteen day trial now dot com slash hustle a lot of people use goal setting journals to help them stay on task and Nick Vita. Lello is no different but he's always been disappointed that the typical journal was boring and uninspiring they all look the same always included the same motivational quotes as a self described closet nerd heard nick thought that he could spice things up he was a big. Fan of Lord of the Rings and imagine that he could design a productivity tool that paid homage to the story roping in Kyle L. His best friend from college. They decided to produce a nerdy version of goal setting journals what had once been considered to be. The domain of nerds was now popular culture just look at Star Wars Harry Potter and game of thrones. The two had always loved great. Stories believe that this could be the opportunity to create a goal guide a template for someone to live out their their own great story. This was a concept developed by American literature Professor Joseph Campbell who termed it the hero's journey having been used by screenwriters from Superhero Superhero movies to childhood classics such as the Lion King. This was a model that definitely connected with people the only question was whether it could be applied to journals as well does the idea of the Heroes Journal coming up with designs. Nick and Kyle had great fun and bringing their imaginations to life Nikki Mond consulted his high school English teacher idea the same person who had taught him about the hero's journey then commissioned the help of a designer they found on up work to make sure the artwork lived up to their high standards but that was just the first step no business experience or any real projection of how the idea would perform nick and kyle decided that they would launch the product on kickstarter to see if there would being interest with the help of an ally mutual friend who had experience with digital advertising their strategy was to build a list of email addresses. They could get to support their launch. They achieve this by writing a series of short blog posts as well as designing a personality quiz that match people to specific heroes in folklore people who took the quiz would only be able to get their results the giving them their email address they brought traffic to their site from facebook cats where fifteen hundred dollars in advertisements gave the duo roughly a thousand email addresses misses missile base in which they would generate additional momentum putting together the campaign video is the next step this took some effort and kyle flew to Seattle to make it with nick the effort proved to be worthwhile as the Heros Journal raised over fifteen thousand dollars even though they just ask for ten thousand dollars this allowed them to make their first bulk order from manufacturers in China yeah after fulfilling kickstarter orders they were left with seven hundred journals which they listed for sale on their shop. Affi- store these flew off the shelves as well facebook ads they you purchase paid off even though they had little experience in this space testing markets that range from high achieving young professionals to Harry Potter fans it took time for nick and kyle to discover the demographic that would be attracted to their product in the end those ads paid for themselves as revenue on the journal brought them three to five times what they spent the the designer for the artwork videographer for the video advertising and manufacturing costs added up to around six thousand five hundred dollars which was something that the two friends were prepared to spend even if the idea didn't take off obstacles included their first round of journals arriving three months late and even had a temporary scare the shipping company had lost their package but with their product price at forty dollars the two friends have since pulled in twenty thousand dollars from this project and now they're ready for round two having reordered two thousand journals in many ways you could say that Nick and Kyle have embarked on their own hero's journey building their side hustle the answer the call to adventure crossed the threshold overcame MHM trials and tribulations enter the Dragon slayer captured the treasurer hand returned home to a changed world ready for their next quest.
