Recordsetter is a social platform for world records, built on a belief that everyone can be the world’s best at something. Their mission is, “To make world record competition accessible for all.” Dan Rollman and Corey Henderson are the founders.

Every submission must be quantifiable, breakable and include indisputable media evidence. Just pick an existing record to break or invent a new record, document it and then submit your record to the website at Recordsetter.com.

The book, The Recordsetter Book of World Records was featured in Bookpage this month.

The Guinness Book of World records has a lengthy checklist to determine if it’s a record and a registration form that takes 4 to 6 weeks to process. If they approve your record attempt, they’ll set the guidelines you have to follow. After you make your attempt and send in the evidence, it still takes them 6 to 8 weeks to process your claim.

Recordsetter is much easier. Invent a record, video tape it and submit it to the website. A few days later you’ll get an email with the link to your record or with questions about your record.

This looks like a lot of fun and a great, accessible addition to a life list or bucket list. You can pick individual records or group efforts.
