The great composer does not set to work because he is inspired,
but becomes inspired because he is working.
Beethoven, Wagner, Bach, and Mozart settled down day after day to the job in hand.
They didn't waste time waiting for inspiration.
-- Ernest Newman English Music Critic (1868-1959)
Greetings-- If you’re new to the 48Days.net community – welcome. This is an amazing group of people who are not content with mediocrity in their work – or anywhere in their lives. You’ll find the members here share their resources and expertise willingly and also share your excitement when you succeed.
We are seeing an explosion of books being published, speakers being booked, coaches filling their schedules, artists finding new ways to market their work, musicians leveraging their talent and creative businesses from podcasting to dry cleaning pickup to muscle car restoration being launched successfully.
I’m thrilled as I see more people who are finding their true calling and applying that in work that is meaningful, purposeful – and profitable. If you’re still in that process, be encouraged; you can do what many others here have done.
Ashley just reminded me our next Write to the Bank live event here at the Sanctuary is coming up August 2-3rd. This is our most popular and least expensive live event. We cap it at 48 participants and always have a waiting list for future events. Don’t miss securing your seat for this fun event if you write but want to know how to make money with that. Check the link for photo shots to see lots of your friends who have attended.
Each week we feature some of our favorite forum discussions, blogs, groups and members in the Notes on the front page. Please note that those who are featured and highlighted are always selected from those who have a clear picture, are active here in this community and are adding valuable content in some way. No magic or inside track – those are the things we look for.
This week we're highlighting:
Featured Discussion – Jeremy James is helping his wife Emily start a newsletter service for mental health professionals. In Critique My Sales Letter he asked for help in getting his promotional material ready for that launch. I think the help he got was critical to giving them a realistic foothold in what could be a very profitable venture. Check it out – learn and offer your advice.
Featured Blog – Danny Mullen shared a delighted post in Ebooks and internet marketing through the eyes of a six year old. After having Daddy’s help in creating an online store – Shirts Ta Go – she is asking how to let people know about the store. Her latest product is a shirt that says – “I wish I was in Hawaii, not in School.” It’s interesting how children often see and believe in the potential of their creative ideas without reservation.
Featured Group – Michael Galvan leads our Real Estate Income Streams group. I’m seeing people who I know are serious investors participating in the discussions here. In a recent post Michael talked about creating multiple streams of income. Members shared what they are doing – openly giving their tips for what has been successful. Just like what we have come to expect in the 48Days.net community. If you are interested in real estate as any part of your own wealth strategy, you’ll want tap into the brain power here – as I have done.
Featured Member – Our featured member this week is Terry Newberry from Pinson, AL. The biggest news is that Terry has just released his book – The Boss. It’s an engaging story of a young boy who is learning important business lessons. In the process we as readers are reminded of some very important life lessons. Terry has attended Write to the Bank, went home and did everything we discussed – The Boss is the beautiful result.
Another note - Seth Godin just announced that he is doing a three-day event for 12 college students. No charge - this could be life changing for a student. If you are a student or have a child who is, I strongly recommend applying immediately. He will have thousands of applications - but like most great things in life - you start by asking and creating a plan.
