      Hey Sarah! I do love me some Marie Forleo (seriously I might be a bit of a groupie, it’s embarrassing)! Thanks so much for the comment :) I love your list, as well! Lots of good stuff on it. Anything you think I should add to this sucker?

      • Ha! Me too… Ever since I found Marie, I’ve obsessively waited for the Tuesday email. She has such amazing stuff.

        Now that you’ve created a list, you’ll find things to add to it! It is a wonderful thing!

  4. Awesome list! I may have to borrow some to add to my own list. Would be cool to meet you when you visit Idaho, let me know if there is anything I can do to help with that adventure. Best of luck!

  5. Why would you ever want to wear a Yankees hat?

    Very Cool! 10 full time employees at Split Aces is an amazing goal – I’ll keep my eye open for job postings :) and at least you have a contact here in Iowa when you decide to visit the state!

      Hi Chad! That’s the plan… I want to have enough people knocking at the door for media help that I have to hire 10 people to manage all of it. One day at a time! I’ll definitely holla when I pass through Iowa :) Thanks!

  7. Awesome list Jessie! And dammit… you have inspired me to get going on mind! I have a pinboard with 6 things but I need to actually write some things down and create a post out of it!

    I’m going to do that NOW! It will be ready today. The start of it.

    You say 10 employees? I was telling my sister today that if I had the money I would truly have 10 employees right now!! So crazy!!

  8. These are so inspirational, Jessie! I had to start my own list after going through these.

    Some of mine include living in Israel for a year, live in at least six European countries, and live in Australia and New Zealand. I want to explore the whole world!

  9. I love this!!! Good luck in everything and I look forward to reading about it all!

    Wear a Yankee hat to Fenway Park

    Wearing a red soxs hat would be more entertaining and make for a good experience to blog about!
