    • I would buy a building to house my business. An old house with gardens and sitting benches and room for a parking area. I’d make a retail area in the front with pretty display cases and bistro tables for sitting, socializing, eating, drinking. I’d have a large demonstration kitchen with a big window so customers could watch the chocolates being made. I’d organize classes and special theme parties and groups for chocolate and confectionery. Oh I could just go on and on.....This is fun!

      Thanks for the wonderful dream session!

    • It’s in the long term business plan. I’m in the process of raising capital right now through online sales. But it really is in the bus plan.

      This moto is the only thing that keeps me going day after day.

      Great Question.

    • OMG. Teeky you are NOT 45. You look fabulous! And girl~ OPEN up the cookie biz! I’ll buy them all! lolol! I’d live on them if I were allowed.

      I have that quote on my refridgerator “What would you attempt to do if you knew you could not fail?”
      (Barnes & Noble have great magnet thingys)

      EVERYTHING! :)
      Art Studio
      Photography Studio (Working on that now actually)
      The list goes oooooooonnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn...........

      If I could stop overwhelming myself with the list of things I want to accomplish & just plan them out in an organized way, I’d be golden!! Seems there’s always something else to be done first.... Don’t know if that makes sense?
      I know I’m not afraid of failure~ I’m an expert at falling on my face & getting back up again. :)

    • Tracy, your list gave me goose bumps. I’m with you on these!

      On the topic of failure, I just have to say that I’ve failed so many times it doesn’t even phase me anymore. I’m no longer afraid of failure. I just get up and say, “well, that didn’t work” and go on to the next thing.

      Tori, I want those cookies! Just put them in a tupperware and send them over.

    • Mztracy, I love your list, and your spirit!

      Chocolatier, that is awesome! I’m still working on the failure thing at times. We have a saying around here, “Success is not our problem, it’s God’s“. Takes a lot of the pressure off for me!

      Jen, I’d love to visit your art studio!

    • Okay ladies...
      Change your definition of failure, and you won’t be afraid anymore. You only fail if you don’t learn something! Anything else is a step closer to success.
      For me - 1)Have a farm like this [Link Removed]
      They can keep the cows. I just want the horses. :)
      2)Be successful enough in my business as a wellness consultant and lifestyle coach to be able to say that I have helped 1 million people improve the quality of their lives.

    • WOW!!!  I’m blown away by all your responses. I don’t even know where to start.
      For those of you mentioning the overwhelming feeling of lists and how they taunt you- have you ever heard of something called micro-actioning? I learned this from my amazing coach Wendy Hart when I first took her Procrastination Cure class. It was amazing but the 6 steps to her cure are:
      1. Take stock- be silly and honest, compassionate evaluation
      2. Get curious, ask questions
      3. Micro-action- consistency, something VERY small to do every day, make it silly to help anchor it.
      4. Prize yourself- even for the smallest thing. Get an Easy Button from Staples and hit it every time you do something- anything. You’ll be blown away by how good this makes you feel. So simple.
      5. Letting go of the timing of the outcomes
      6.  Measure results by looking where you have come from instead of always looking for where you want to go.

      I’m so thankful to be part of such an amazing group of women like this.  I know that all of you will achieve those dreams when you are ready!!  

      “Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one’s courage”  - Anais Nin

      I’ll be waiting for those cookies, the cure for MS and Breast Cancer and I’ll be able to say I knew you all when!!

      Go for it girls!!

    • You know.. this may sound odd but I do attempt any and everything that I put my mind to.. fail or not.  If I want to do it I do.

      Sometimes I fail, sometimes I suceed but I always try.  Now having said that, I have a list of things Im attempting and moving toward and I think Ill suceed.. and if I dont.. Ill keep trying.

    • Bobbi as I was typing my comment I was thinking the same thing. I can honestly say that I have done most everything that I want to do also. My problem is going the distance and not getting sidetracked or sabotaging my process.

    • Almost50, We are warrior pirates.. we will take the challenge before us and my advice stay focused I do.. Life intercedes often but I have a TO DO list and I follow it.  Ive been a bit lax this past month due to Hurricane Ike and some personal matters, but Im slowly getting back on target and rolling again.  Some Dream, Some Do, Some can dream and do.  Im a Doer and a Dreamer.  A mover and a shacker.  Almost50 you are a 40 plus Model.. already.. YOU ARE !!!!  And your beautiful.. face mask and all.  Keep Dreaming and Doing.. dont stop... life is too short, we will have some failures but dont quit.

      Someone told me once if you think you will fail then you already have.

    • So the question is one thing I would do if I knew I couldn’t fail.  An over 40 plus sized model.  LOL  Do my photography professionally and make beautiful pictures.. that people would actually want to buy instead of saying how pretty.  My home based business to actually do what I know can be done. Hummm I’m rambling here..lol

    • Well, I did think of something else. But I really hope to someday do this. I want to make a CD. It would be a blast to have my singing friends to join in some of the music too. I’d love to have that to leave the kids and grandkids. Plus it would just be fun!
