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.

Sell a house
My First Closing

I actually started working on a deal on another house first, but the owner was having issues clearing title due to a lien on the property. By the time we got it all straightened out, I’d already put in a cash offer for a separate buyer on a different property, and that deal closed first! How great it felt to hand my buyer’s the keys to their new homes!

I Did It!!!

I read all 3 books, then realized I was supposed to take a test online at the end of each one, so I read them all again and did that, then had to wait for a copy of my birth certificate (which was lost in our last move) to come in the mail before I could register for the test. I studied that practice questions book until I could get at least 80% right and then I took the test and waited FORever to find out whether I’d passed or not. When I finally got the news, it was a Wednesday. I wrote my first offer that Friday! I work with another agent who is a listing agent for REO properties who has given me a share in 6 of her listings, too, for doing the leg work on them, so things are moving right along already! :)

Own a home on acreage
Patience, Patience, Patience...

I’ve always wanted to live on a farm. Not necessarily the kind of farm where you have to butcher a pig if you want to eat bacon, or a cow if you want a hamburger, but I wouldn’t mind owning a horse or a donkey and some goats, sheep, and chickens. I’d love to cook vegetables from our own garden for my family again like I did when we owned our pizza shop. But that has never been an option since we moved up to the mountains because our first home was in a subdivision where the lots on our block were no bigger than 1/2 an acre (and ours was 1/5 of one!) So, we made a lifestyle choice to raise our children a bit closer to nature and moved 17 miles further into the mountains. Now we have 2 1/4 acres and I’m already plotting where the hen house is going to go, and the goat shelter, and my gardens! And two of the three mouser cats we saved from an abandoned house in Valley Springs just gave birth to a total of 13 kittens! (Not intended, but an amazing sight to see nonetheless.) I’m in bliss. Life is good! Anybody want a kitten?
