Hello purrsonal finance kittens and humans!
I don't want to crowd up your inbox - this will be my last email about this - but I wanted to let you know that there's still time to join the weekly #purrsonalfinance chapter read-alongs. Chapter 2 went out this week to the 51% of backers participating, and you can easily catch up!
Each week we reveal a new chapter and a new kitty of the week. Plus, we have a #purrsonalfinance money challenge, and you get a digital cat merit badge for completing each one! We're trying out instagram for live Q&A's each Sunday night so you can ask me questions about the chapter. The next one is today at 5PM Pacific time! Get notified about the livestream by following @oh.mydollar on instagram.
When do the chapter emails come out? The new chapters come out on Wednesday night or Thursday morning, depending on your timezone (11 time zones are represented by our group of backers!)
What if I fall behind? Don't worry about it; if you get swamped and miss a week, it's easy to skip over a chapter or catch up later. You shouldn't have any problems catching up, and hopefully the weekly challenges will provide some cute accountability!
Can I give these weekly read-alongs as a gift? Yes! Just shoot me an email back with your giftee's name and email address and I'll send a "gift email" to your gift recipient that will let them opt-in to the weekly read-alongs.
When are my print books and stickers and cat bowties coming? We're still on track for the full release in April as originally predicted. I will let you know if anything changes!
How are the pay it fur-ward classes going? We had 211 pay it fur-ward books donated, and we have 100 of the spots booked with Portland-area non-profits! If you're interested in facilitating a class and receiving free books and money curriculum for group that serves low-income folks in your area, I'll be sending out a (very short and easy) application later this month!

The first chapter is here!
HOOOORAAAY!! THE WAIT IS OVER!
The first chapter of your ebook, and an explanation of our weekly chapter read-along (and how this came to be) should have hit your inbox from "Lillian from Oh My Dollar!" this afternoon.
If you didn't get the email, it could have been that you previously unsubscribed from Oh My Dollar!'s email list or it went into your filters. Please check your spam and promotions tab and if you don't find it, shoot me an email at email@example.com
Starting now, we'll be doing weekly #purrsonalfinance challenges from the book, catnip giveaways for #purrsonalfinance challenge photos, and I'll be doing live Q&A's each week! So hop on over to your email and get on the purrsonal finance train!
Herding cats is hard - ebook out by 2/7

Well, kittens, the ebook is going to be a week delayed
Herding cats (or designers, illustrators, editors, etc) is hard, one of our cats is late (I think it stopped for a nap along the way)! The ebook won't be ready tomorrow as I'd hoped. It should be in your paws by 2/7 at the latest.
My sincerest apologies for the delay - I want to make sure I deliver the best book possible to you, and we're rolling a snowball uphill right now!
Surveys for you financial kittens!

Surveys coming from Backerkit
This is just a quick update to let you know that backer surveys are incoming from Backerkit! In the survey, you will have a chance to add on stickers (if you're an ebook-only backer), add on the Get Your Money Together online bootcamp, change your address, get your kitten a financially-themed bowtie, and other fun things.
The Get Your Money Together online bootcamp is only $39 to add-on for kickstarter backers, which is an excellent deal compared to the usual price of $89. So if you missed it in the kickstarter, now is the time to add it on.
Ebooks will be arriving next week! Keep your eyes on your inbox for all the financial kittens!
