1 Milestone Goals
Keeping the lights turned on, etc..
$4,000 per Month of Acronym TV videos
Eventually, we will need about $12,000/ month to keep producing these full in studio episodes of Acronym TV. For now, we need $4,000/ a month to survive. 

Everyone who works on Acronym TV is compensated.  Not enough, mind you, but they are compensated. 
We need a small crew to pull this off, and paying that crew gives the work dignity, purpose and helps make it sustainable. So, these goals represents the bare minimum to compensate for time, talent and resources to write, edit, produce, and promote Acronym TV.

Goal 1 
Keeping the lights turned on. Basic stuff like studio space, Internet, web hosting, and also maintenance and/or purchase of video, audio, and lighting equipment.  Not all of these costs incur every month, so this goal represents our annual budget for the above-mentioned items divided by 12.
Part time staffer
$6,000 per Month of Acronym TV videos
Meeting this goal funds a part time (20 hrs per week) video editor, AND allows Acronym TV to meet the financial obligations outlined in goals 1.

Once we meet this goal, we can start to think about adding more goals until we reach the sustainability mark of $12,000/ month.
