Hi- please share any ideas of the best step-by-step/ checklist type resources for getting an online business up and running.  I think Dan's book 48 Days to the Work You Love focuses on getting a job.  Hopefully the new version with address this, but in the meantime I'd appreciate suggestions for resources like that for getting an online business going....I have ADD, so the simpler and more "checklisty" the better. Thanks!

Jessica, had a friend receive an interview after about 35 letters were sent.  Dan does suggest 30-40.

I've been trying to help my husband use the 48 days process to get a new job in pharmaceutical sales. Unfortunately of the three intro letters we sent out, 2 got returned and the third he just keeps going straight to voice mail. What can we do?

Day Number 2

Though I've already done the reading for today on my way home from work yesterday. I read and 'mostly' applied 48 Days nearly three years ago. Then an engagement, wedding, and birth of our daughter happened and just like those three years have gone by and nothing has changed at work.

So I'm recommitting to the process. Re-reading and completely applying the material.

Hi everybody. Today is Independence Day, and it's fitting because I've come to understand my freedom from limits! I basically backed myself into a career corner after leaving the military 7 years ago. I am currently working on a production line in a food packaging factory, and I began the 48 Day journey because I felt stuck.

I am on Day 11 of my journey. To better understand where my personality fits, I purchased the DISC Profile. Turns out that I'm a high-C Mediator. Of the jobs that are listed as possible matches (there are quite a few), the design jobs are the ones that catch my attention the most. I don't know how to go about getting into something like that, but I believe that would be a much better fit for me. 

I wish everybody well on your continued personal development, and may all of your dreams come true!

Hello everyone, My name is Jenise Walters. I am currently on the journey to work I love. I recently left my Job as a software developer, to move closer to my family and take some time to develop myself spiritually before re-entering the workforce. Currently I am searching for work in the digital marketing field. I am educating myself through books and working with a local business to grow customers through social media. The job search process has been somewhat difficult for me since I am extra picky about what I apply to and I don't know many people in the area I just moved to. I'm so grateful for the 48 days community. This should have been the first place I came to to help motivate me on my journey.

Thanks David!  I'm really glad to have the 48 Days community for support for the upcoming months of change to come :-)

Comment by David Kimball on September 23, 2012 at 9:38pm

Outstanding and congratulations on the breakthrough, Shundra!  Be sure to get a couple of people "in the know" to look at it for any improvements.

Looking forward to hearing of your success so the screaming in the head will stop :-).
