I Love Big Challenges... If you could choose only five people in the world to get to know by the end of 2008, who would they be? I found this challenge here

Here is my list.
1. T.D. Jakes
2. Glenn Beck
3. Eric Dubbell
4. Tim Ferriss
5. LaShawn Barber

I am going to take this list one at a time starting with LaShawn Barber
