Why is it taking so long?

Hi, Everyone!

I am here with a quick update to let you know that your card PDFs will be here this week. 

CARD PDFS arrival in your digital downloads: Week of October 16th.
CARD DECKS shipping estimated for December.

Why is it taking so long?

As with any creative project, sometimes there are edits and delays which are unexpected and unavoidable. But, these changes and delays are only making the quality of our product better.

1. After viewing the prototype, we decided to increase the font on the cards, and this necessitated more changes to our existing card copy. 

After we make changes, cards are sent to the designer for edits and then back to our copy editor for proofing and then back to me once again for last looks. Sometimes, more changes are needed. This is a long but necessary process to ensure the quality of our product meets (and even exceeds) our expectations. 

2. We upgraded the boxes as one of our stretch goal accomplishments. We needed a new box template from our printer and while this created another fun project for our designer (yay) - it also meant that she had to complete more work than initially planned. 

Thank you for all your input, feedback, and messages - and most of all thank you for your patience. Your card PDFs are coming!!

Talk soon!

Hello, Kickstarter Backers!  

Thank you for making the Conscious Communication Cards a reality! 


It's time to deliver your online rewards! Check your email (and spam) for an email which contains a link to your personal backer survey where you can do things like: 

  • switch/upgrade your pledge
  • add-on additional products and courses
  • choose your online class (Late Talkers)
  • access to your online courses + digital products
  • tell us where to ship your cards (estimated December delivery)
  • share with your friends who wanted the cards but missed our Kickstarter 

Online course access + Sample Card PDF + the Conscious Communication Workbook are available now. 

The Conscious Communication Cards PDF will be available soon (waiting for final edits to be approved). 

If you need to change your survey responses, purchase add-on items, or update your shipping information, you can click the link in your survey email again or request your survey link under "Lost your survey?" on our BackerKit project page

BackerKit helped save me lots of time (and probably a few headaches) by streamlining the survey process, automating everything, and providing a pledge management software which made it easy to process your rewards - and offer you MORE!

It's also enabled us to EXTEND our campaign.

If you know someone who wanted the cards (and reward packages) - but missed the Kickstarter deadline - they can still pledge until October 16th with this link

Thanks for again and again for all your support. 


p.s. If you used your Facebook credentials to log in to your Kickstarter account, the BackerKit survey link is sent to the email address you use for your Facebook account. If you have another email address that you prefer to use, please contact me. 

p.p.s. You can save over 50% on my online courses when you purchase through our pre-order store. This special offer is ONLY for Kickstarter Backers!
