On Wednesday, I wrote a post that posed the question, “What would you do today if you knew you would succeed wildly?” I thoroughly enjoyed reading your responses and wanted to conclude the week with mine.
I would start by finally sitting down and writing my first book, sans breaking for work, having to go to sleep for work, etc. Upon its completion (and multiple publishing offers that I would obviously get), I would pack a suitcase and travel the globe.

In said chapter, I foresee a petting zoo and lots of goats. As some of you may know, goats are my favorite animal.
