    Some nice tips, but over all not impressed.

    My big problem with this course is that you should have 30% of your goal being fulfilled by friends and family. In case you want to raise a million (as title suggests) that means $300K on the first day. By friends and family. I'm not sure which silver spoon raised her, but I don't have friends and family that can fork up that amount in a day.

    Loved the resources especially!

    More great stuff from financing expert Lili Balfour! If you want your crowd-funding campaign to be a success you have to work it. And what Lili does in this course is give us the exact step-by-step approach to doing that. I especially loved the resources, email templates and examples that Lili gives throughout the course. And the quizzes -- won't give too much away but great fun!
