Verity Price: What I Learned From My Crowdfunding Campaign Before 'Crowdfunding' Was A Thing

Verity Price is a multi-talented creative extraordinaire. With a two-decade career in performing, public speaking, consulting, modelling, acting and singing, Verity has recast herself as one of the top corporate consultants in South Africa, providing leadership structures and strategic insight to some of the top companies on the continent.

In what seems like a previous lifetime, however, Verity was the first singer-songwriter in South Africa to conduct a crowdfunding campaign - way back in 2007 - to generate income for her upcoming album, and circumvent the big record labels. Verity's story is riveting, and the lessons she gleaned from the experience are timeless.
