By BOAZ FRANKEL, World Record Holder
In October 2006 I became the world record holder for most high fives in an hour (408 high fives; the previous record was 308). You can break records in almost anything, from doing the most jumping jacks to baking the biggest cupcake!
Find a record you want to break. Look at www.guinnessworldrecords.com, or see the Guinness World Records book published every year.
Schedule your record-breaking attempt on the Guinness website.
Call reporters at your local newspapers, radio and TV stations and let them know when, where and what you’ll be doing it.
Collect pictures, articles, TV clips and two letters from witnesses of your attempt.
Then send it all off to Guinness World Records along with the forms on their website.
