It’s not official, at least not by Guinness World Records™ standards. I still have to send in a boatload of paperwork and documentation to the official office and get approval. But here’s what I can tell you:

  1. The #BARWS webcast lasted 36 hours and a few seconds without interruption, thanks to all of our careful “risk management” and safeguards that we put in place before and during the event.
  2. I followed all Guinness World Records™ rules to a tee.
  3. I have a crazy amount of video footage and documentation to send in, making my claim irrefutable. I’m pretty darned sure.

Of course, I have a tendency to worry, to avoid being too overjoyed until I have the official word, to not be 100% absolutely sure of something until it’s officially in-hand.

So…on the one hand, I’m crazy excited and proud of what I accomplished- what we, as a group, did together. Because world record or no, this was an amazing, inspiring, spectacular event. It was as content-rich as I expected it would be, but there was something special here. Something more. I’m not sure what it was, but in the coming days, I’ll be pondering that and most likely, blogging about it at SusanBaroncini-Moe.com.

For now, what I can say for sure is…


Thanks, everyone. 🙂

  1. Congrats everyone and great job. The content and quality of the production was top notch.

    Good luck with the paperwork, likely it is more intensive than the production itself and not nearly as fun.

  2. Thanks for your compliments, Doug! There IS a lot of paperwork, however it’s nowhere near the amount of effort I had to put into the production itself. That would be…well, herculean. LOL

  5. Michael, thank you, from the bottom of my heart. It was a joy and an honor to have you be a part of this event and to learn from your experience and wisdom in person as I have (as we all have) from your books. It is you who inspired me to trust myself enough to become what my spirit called me to be- an entrepreneur. Thank you, thank you, thank you…there will never be enough thank yous for me to adequately express how much you mean to me, and how much it meant to me to have you there for the opening and the closing of this event. You are amazing. Warmly, Susan
