So, how was everyone's Thanksgiving? I had a great time and I hope everyone did as well.

This update is going to be a little different from the rest of them so far. So brace for impact.

To start off, the Fantom How-To-Video REMASTERED set is now officially in production. I don't have a certain date on when it will be done, and that's because I want it to come out perfect with NO flaws. As for the Fantom Encyclopedia, that is still being developed for professional and collector use. I want this to be used in both collector and professional fields. I want someone to be able to pick it up and easily find how to fix and service any Fantom Vacuum that he/she has. More info will be posted on this site as time goes on.

So, as some of you guys know, I am very passionate about Fantom. I have dreams of becoming an successful business owner and opening a vacuum shop / Fantom Refurbishment Center. I have been hard at work, besides my job, this project has consumed most of my time, which is great. I love to be occupied with something I care about a lot. So where I'm going with this is, this project will take some time. When I am passionate about something, I take my time on it to ensure that nothing fails, or if something does, I have a plan that can assist me. I NEVER jump onto something, I ALWAYS make sure that I do proper research before hand to make sure it's safe for me to proceed.

I want to own a business, I want to do all of these things, but the only person that can do that is, me. I am very passionate and professional when it comes to this, and it's to a point where it makes me happy to research and educate myself.

So, I know that I will make my dreams a reality. I will put my mind to it and every time I fail, I'll get myself back up, brush myself off, and start over again. I will never give up and I will never say "I can't".

That is all of today, I apologize if that was emotional. I just want everyone to know I am committed for life.

Just a suggestion. Don't try to do everything yourself. Where possible make it a collaborative effort and recruit others to help. Online collaborations are common in almost all fields.

As for perfection, don't waste your time. Start with version 1 and go from there as needed. Videos can be helpful without being perfect. If your goal is perfection, you risk taking so long to complete the job that your final product is no longer relevant.

I ended up donating to this campaign....

I never received any of the perks, and I emailed the owner of the campaign. He stopped responding to me when I asked for a tracking number for something that was supposedly shipped out. I never got the item, and the campaign is now closed and I am out my $40.
