My Bucket List

I’ve always kept a Bucket List tucked away in journals and over the years have added to them and crossed accomplishments off, but have yet to make it public. Just as I believe goals should be made public to keep you accountable, so should the biggest things you want to do before you die.

I’ve recently been inspired by the 4 boys of The Buried Life to make my bucket list known and start crossing things off the list.

  2. Awsome info and straight to the point. I am not sure if this is truly the best place to ask but do you guys have any ideea where to hire some professional writers? Thank you :)

    • I’m glad you found the information useful! What kind of writing were you looking to have created? Typically you’d want to find someone who works in communications, journalism or copy writers. You can actually find some really good free-lancers online in your local area I have no doubt. Hope this helps!
