Jump Start

Jump Start is for those who are ready to set important events in motion. To overcome the resistance that is holding us back. To make a difference with our work by serving others in truly meaningful ways.

Being a member of this group is a public declaration that you are ready to be an action taker. That a JUMPers Heart beats inside you. A heart that is loud and strong in the pursuit of purpose, ideas and relationships.

A JUMPers Heart is one that guides with commitment. Its power reshapes our past missteps and failures into the successes of today. Each beat of a JUMPers Heart is an anthem that declares excuses and fear will not control me. That today is a gift I will utilize to the best of my ability.

The Hard Thing: Aligning our hearts to establish the discipline that leads to meaningful and long lasting success is not easy. It requires regular and consistent work.  

The Good News: It’s worth every effort we put into it.

We invite you to establish yourself here as someone who makes a difference. To participate in our discussions and events. To be better prepared for each phase of your next JUMP. 

Our Jump Start Code:

Today we will…
Live by truth.
Express our love.
Share our enthusiasm.
Take action towards our dreams.
Walk our talk.
Dance and sing to our music.
Embrace our blessings. 
Most of all, we will make today worth remembering.

Michael Hyatt is offering his newly updated Best Year Ever program for 2017. If nothing else, grab this free e-book. Some pretty heavy hitters including Dave Ramsey, Tony Robbins, and Chris Brogan have contributed to it.

Kind words Linda, thank you. Looking forward to your update in 3 weeks.

Comment by Linda Gullo on October 23, 2016 at 2:23pm

Alan,  don't know if I am in the right space to reply, but I loved the message of lingo for success.  I try so hard to empower other people.   It is my main purpose in helping people feel competent in their lives.  As a Coach and Mental Health professional, the words we use with ourselves and others REALLY MATTERS.  Thank you for addressing this so nicely.  And I did recite that promise.  Even marked my calendar for 21 days!

Thanks Sam! That is awesome. get busy and work hard!

Hey, Y'all. I'm Sam. Just wanted to introduce myself. Most people know me as a Pastor or Farmer, but I also have several books on the market and I have a weekly Bible Study Podcast.  I've been a part of 48days.net for several years, but I'm new to this group. I'm making a huge jump early in 2017 and am laying the groundwork now. Short version; my wife and I are moving to Scotland to work with struggling Churches, and we're also going to work with people who want to grow some or all of their own food or to find way to earn income in the local food economy. Related to that, I am working to transform my blog and test garden from a hobby into an income producing business complete with online courses and membership site.  Lot's to do. Oh, I almost forgot, my wife and I are leaving next week for 5 weeks in Scotland to lay the foundation for our planned long term move next year.

Thanks Melissa, I am going to jump in! lol

Comment by Melissa AuClair on September 30, 2016 at 6:13am

Hi Billie!  Wow, these are great. This looks like a good starting point, but I'm not your target market :)

People treat their pets like they treat their kids, right? (at least some do). Consider comparing pricing with some kids digital art photography.  This looks like similar pricing I've seen for photographers starting out.

Of course, as you start to get referrals and more work than you can handle, the price can go up! I love your creativity. It's a unique look that brings out the personality of the pet more than a photograph. 

Comment by Billie Wells on September 29, 2016 at 7:45pm

Hi Guys, I have a question..I paint digitally. And just starting to paint dogs. 

And here's my question:  How much do you think I could charge for one of these? These are digital art. The client would send a photograph of the dog - I would need a full resolution photograph (not compressed for the web) and then I paint them. I am doing two for a friend. (So these are not paintings - they are photographs I painted in the computer)
I am thinking this: too much or not enough?
8x10    on beautiful archival paper        $75  
11x14   on beautiful archival paper        $90
8x10   on canvas (ready to hang - no framing needed)     `  $ 125
11x14  on canvas (ready to hang - no framing needed)        $ 150
What do you all think? Am doing website and flyers
Thanks!! Here's a couple:

Hey Jumpers, Just wanted to share that I am launching a group program on October 17 specifically for those who have a struggling business. I am passionate about helping people move their business from "ho-hum" to "awesome" and this program will be design for individual issues even though it is a group program. Feel free to sign up HERE to get details.
