The Hit List

I’d love to get some of your ideas and suggestions for new and different things to try for this challenge. Many minds come up with awesome ideas.
* I will do my best to try as many of the suggestions as possible but I reserve the right to sit out on some of them… 🙂

Email me with your ideas and I will add them to the list!
