Hey you'll have to read about this week's featured member to see one of the unusual things you can do to make money.
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.
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 – Brian Cook asked for some input regarding What Percentage Should I Get For Ghostwriting? Typically a ghostwriter gets paid a fee for writing a book. In this case Brian says he wants to do it for a percentage of profits. Obviously, he’s willing to leave himself pretty open. Book sales are never predictable – I’ve seen books from Billy Graham absolutely bomb and then books come out of nowhere like The Help or The Shack and sell millions. Brian got some valuable input but will have to make his own case with his client. Could be a lot of work with no return or a creative proposition to make a windfall. I admire his creativity.
Featured Blog - Just Cruisin' Would you like to take a cruise around the Caribbean in February, experience some beautiful ports, build some powerful relationships, and soak in some incredible workshops with amazing people? Be sure to check in with Pierce Marrs to come aboard with us on the Wisdom meets Passion cruise!
Featured Group – Randell Mark Olson heads up this very active group – Lifestyles of the ExcpetionZ. In describing the group he says: It’s time to live your life with the one degree difference, and experience what being exceptional is all about; where even the average can become among the greats!
One degree is all it takes to melt ice, and one degree is all that is needed to create steam.
And steam can power a train!
One degree, that’s it! That one degree can turn a life on or even off course.
Take ownership of the one degree, and unleash your true potential!
If you’re ready for that one significant degree change in your life – and think you can stand the heat – jump in this group.
