We are back and we are moving forward.
We are in talks with more than one investor about finally getting off the ground. To say there have been challenges is an under statement.
Let me address a few things here If I may?
When are we going to be able to sell?
That's a very good question.
1. Many of you have been asking for years. You deserve an answer. The simple answer is if all goes well and the stars align and the great gods smile on us possibly just possibly late next year.
Why so long?
Well that's even easier to answer. If you have been following us and have had the opportunity to try the fantastic beverage we just didn't get the support that we needed.
We launched a KickStarter a few years ago and only reached a 3rd of our goal. This is a very major reason why. We have been working with several potential investors previously and it just fell through. We still have the vision the faith and the drive to make this a reality but we have to succeed soon the well is nearly dry.
When are you going to be at (X) Convention?
Well we would absolutely love to come to (X) convention but we are trying to save money and conventions are expensive.
Naughticon was great 2 years ago they had us as guest host and speakers. Unfortunately they only were able to offer us vendor space. We don't sell enough merchandise to cover the expense.
You want us book us there is a link for our booking page. We'll throw parties MC and such but you have to understand you are paying for our services and appearance the chances are good we'll bring party favors and throw free tastings at the parties there are restrictions to that so please contact us with inquires.
Well that's easy I want to buy your Mead.
Yeah if you haven't noticed we have been giving away our mead for free and throwing tasting parties and selling merchandise to cover the expense of a convention. WE CAN NOT SELL MEAD ITSELF TILL WE GET A LICENSE. (We are so tired of that statement)
Ok Gotcha what are you doing and what can we do to get your fantastic product out there?
Thank you for asking.
For us we are contacting a liquor attorney to find out what all the legal fees are going to cost us. We are scouting locations and contacting local government where we are allowed to start a meadery.
We are researching all the minimum equipment we need to get this started like the absolute bare bones we need to produce commercially what we need to be able to pay off potential investors and pay the bills and expand until the business can become self sustaining and provide enough income we can be Mead Men full time.
We are doing this so that we can put together a business plan and proposal for potential investors.
We are going to launch another crowd sourcing attempt once we have all the financial figures.
That brings us to you and all your friends.
This is our big push do or die. If we can not secure the investment and/or the crowd sourcing to cover everything we need in addition to our own savings. Miracle Mead will only be the stuff of legends and will only be a hobby and we'll not try to go commercial with it. It will only be available to people that we know personally.
We love the mead we love all the people we meet and the friends it has made. However when we see some of the crazy stuff that is getting funded on the internet Chewbacca Mom people pay to watch girls play video games. Don't get us wrong we wish them all the success they have and more. Still we are offering a product to people that people love and is tangible but we can't garner the needed support for it well maybe it isn't meant to be.
So we'll be keeping you posted as we ramp up for our next great Crowd Sourcing project and we will have some very fun stuff. coming up.
