Last year, when he decided to launch a crowdfunding campaign for his "Freedom Journal," he partnered with Pencils of Promise. He raised $453,000 on Kickstarter and donated $75,000 to the nonprofit. Now he's at it again. Dumas boasts over 1 million listens to his "Entrepreneur on Fire" podcast every month. You wouldn't think he "needs" to partner with Pencils of Promise in order to be successful with his campaign. Dumas is a savvy entrepreneur. He's clearly figured that this is an important part of the strategy. His last campaign for the "Freedom Journal" raised enough to build three schools in Ghana, Guatemala or Laos, the three countries where the nonprofit operates. For his current campaign launched this morning for his "Mastery Journal," he hopes to raise $100,000, enough for Pencils of Promise to build four schools. ---------------- Read the full Forbes article and watch the interview here: http://bit.ly/2keFgVa.
