We plan to develop a following numbering in the millions of monthly paid subscribers by the end of fiscal year 2022.
Our target audience
Our target audience is kids, and the people who love and share head space with them! Our advertising and marketing materials will demonstrate and provide visual cues for potential subscribers/investors/customers to get a sense of the beautiful ways in which our musical stories can deliver a transformative experience for their lives and their loved ones and the earth. We will to develop a global social media following, while always remaining focused on the hard working, well-educated middle-class moms who are our primary supporters. We will also work to invite grandparents to feel free to invest in a yearly subscription or lifelong archive access for their children and grandchildren to enjoy as a gift.

Mike has been real good at reading aloud ever since elementary school. He hasn't been writing poetry and stories quite that long. But almost.
Mike also has a terminal and complex liver disease (mainstream medical institutions call it 'primary sclerosing cholangitis' or PSC) ever since middle school. He requires a lot of holistic care and high quality foods, teas and juices to stay on the healing path.
You can take a look at his side project, a blog called 'haven cultivation' if you feel called to do so.
