Your place for community & resources to find or create work you love

We are so glad you're here and ready to take the next step! We created 48days.net as a place for community. For people to encourage each other and help each other in finding or creating work that is meaningful.

But frankly, we've outgrown it, so we're moving to provide you new resources.

48Days.net will be closing as it is today on November 30, 2017. Until then current members can click the button below to access groups and resources.

If you're new to 48days.net, connect here for a close up look at our thriving 48 Days Eagles Community and to get weekly free resources and motivation as you find and create work you love.

I am in the process of writing a book (Beyond School Walls) and it is about how to become happier, luckier, and more succesful by learning the stuff that wasn't taught in school! The topics I am exploring include leaderschip, communicating, positive self esteem, happiness, goal setting, and many more.

This is where I would appreciate your help:

What do you feel is the single most important thing that you didn't learn school, but would have benefited you most throughout your life and career.

I appreciate any feedback.

Dave Ramsey principles and Dan Miller principles - basically where does true wealth come from and how to prepare for a successful life that has nothing to do with "finding a secure job".

Absolutely...Very important!  Thanks

I would have definitely liked to read a book about this subject while I was in school. It would have explained a lot.

How to navigate the job application and interviewing process would have been a good lesson I wish someone taught me in school. They show you the skills for working but not how to get the job. Etiquette, language, preparedness, presentation.

I agree...I feel that my education (and I have an MBA) never taught me the stuff to be truly successful.  I value my education, but I think there is so much that needs to be learned.

Thank you for your thoughts!


Here's what I wish school would have taught me:

Six Ways To Make People Like You*

  1. Become genuinely interested in other people.
  2. Smile
  3. Remember that a person’s name is to that person the sweetest and most important sound in any language.
  4. Be a good listener.  Encourage others to talk about themselves.
  5. Talk in terms of the other person’s interests.
  6. Make the other person feel important – and do it sincerely.

*How to Win Friends and Influence People – Dale Carnegie

Those principles have done more to build my success than any geometry or algebra or history every has.  

Dan...I agree!  I love that book!  Those principles have helped me more in life than anything else.  Thank you for reminding me and your thoughts!

Connie...Awesome!  Neither am I....I embrace change - some people thinks it is crazy, but it has suited me well.  Thanks for your thoughts, I appreciate it!

I'm glad you posted that.  I'm having one of those moments myself.  Thank you.

That's easy - how to best manage money.  I have 20+ years of debt training and living BEYOND my means engraved into me, which has put me in a position now where I struggle to have the freedom I crave in my career.  Dave Ramey's teachings are helping me to get on track, but it's easy to slip back into old habbits when it's what you had done for so long. 

YES!  Money Management is IMPORTANT.  I actually spent 8 years as a financial advisor and this topic is definitely on my list.  THANK YOU!

Practical math - budgeting, money management, etc.

Positive thinking and the importance of attitude and personal development

How to discover your strengths and use them in the real world

good luck!!

YES..YES..YES!  All good topics!  I appreciate your thoughts and am trying to incorporate all of these!  THANK YOU!
