Dear 43 Things Users,

10 years after introducing 43 Things to the world, we have decided we have met our last goal: completing the incredible experience that has been 43 Things. Please join us in giving one last cheer to all the folks who have shared their goals with the world, as well as all the people who have worked at The Robot Co-op to build this incredible website. We won a Webby Award, published a book, and brought happiness to a lot of people.

Starting today, 43 Things users can export their goals and entries from the site. Starting August 15, we will make the site “read only”. 43 Things users will still be able to view the site and export their content, but we won’t be taking any new content from users. We hope to leave the site up for folks to see and download their content until the end of the year. Ending on New Year’s Eve takes us full circle.

It has been a long ride (one of our original goals was to "build a company that lasts at least 2 years” - we beat that one!) While we wish the site could live on, it has suffered from a number of challenges - changes in how people use the site, the advertising industry, and how search engines view the site. We wish the outcome was different – but we’ve always been realistic about when our goals are met and when they aren't.

As of today, you will be able to download your goals and entries. See more about that on the FAQ page. Thanks for 10 great years of goal-setting and achieving.

- The Robots.

Here's How You Can Get Started!

I am a real estate agent, first thing you need to do is find a good agent who can help you find the right properties. Most people think they can save more money by not using an agent. Not true, buyers agents get paid by the seller! Next find a lender (Mortgage Company) that you can trust. Best if provided by real estate agent (Safest way to go). Whatever you do don’t get a loan online (nothing but trouble). Make sure you meet face to face! Very important to build trust. Decide if you want to buy properties to own and rent out or to buy fix up and sell for a profit (Flipping). I suggest a bit of both. When flipping a house be sure to budget and make sure you can make a profit off of the flip. If you need help finding an agent let me know and I will find you a good one. Just email me at and let me know where you live or plan on investing (City and State) and I can help you find a good agent. Any other questions you have feel free to email me. Also if you plan on being a serious investor in real estate, I suggest getting your real estate license. Even if you do not work as a realtor you can make money off referrals. For instance if I were to refer you to an agent I could ask the agent I refer you to, to pay me a referral fee of about 30 % of their commision. So if you buy and sell alot you can acctually refer yourself to an agent and get some money back from their commisions. Hope this helps you can good luck!
