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.

48 Days.net; The Entrepreneurial Greats Are Here!

Profile Information

How did you hear about 48Days.NET, and what do you hope to get out of being a part of this community?
I first heard Dan speak at Dave Ramsey's Certified Counselor Training, Feb. 2005. Since then I have been very interested in Dan's unique perspective of finding work that involves passion, and oh yes, a paycheck as an added bonus!
Dan and Dave, through God's leadership and guidance, have led me down the path of much needed hope. They have turned me on to a positive side of living, that in my sincere opinion, wouldn't have been possible had I not met them.
What is your current work situation? Employee, self-employed, generating any income on your own?
After 30 + years in the manufacturing environment, our business unit at Dura Automotive sold and moved to Canada. Result: I went from being gainfully employed, to another statistic sitting in the unemployment office!
On the positive side of this; I am now pursuing other opportunities that I would not have considered if our plant had not closed. I am now working for the State of Tennessee Dept of Transportation on a full time basis....AND....working at a part time job, both of which I thoroughly enjoy! The journey isn't over yet though. I KNOW there are even bigger things in store for my family and I! Life just plain ROCKS!!!
And then...what is your goal/dream for your work life?
To open my own business here in Cookeville, TN as a life/career/financial coach.
Two areas I am passionate about:
1.) To help folks realize that in this land of opportunity, the old work model of "living paycheck to paycheck" and from "Thank God it's Friday" is an extremely generic way of the thinking, and;
2.) There is MUCH more to work than having a "J-O-B"! Our work should be meaningful and have positive impact on everyone around us. Through our work, we should be able to make a difference in this world, and be proud of it. I would absolutely LOVE to help others realize, and ACT on that way of thinking.
How about your personal life? Any specific goals or achievements or dreams you are pursuing (or want to pursue)?
To be around positive minded people that will encourage me, and that I can be an encouragement to as well.
Another major goal I have is to do work that is built around my family, not family built around my work. That is VERY important to me.
What would you say are your strongest talents? How are you 'wired' and what can you offer to the world (it's OK if you don't know yet, but knowing is key to pursuing your dreams!)?
I constantly look for ways to encourage others. I love seeing other people happy and prosperous. When I can play a small role in helping others win, I win too! I also try my best to relate with others.
Do you have a website presence anywhere?
Are you interested in finding a better job, starting a business, growing your current business, writing a book, blogging, podcasting, coaching, speaking, sales & marketing, or something else?
Options are always WIDE open!
Feel free to share your Twitter name, Facebook page, and any other social media way to connect with you!

29 Years Wedding Anniversary, TODAY!!!

Posted on June 27, 2010 at 2:31pm 5 Comments

Hey Gang,

Just wanted all my 48 Days buddies to know about my wife and I, and our 29 years of a great marriage as of today.

I am very blessed by our almighty God that he has seen fit for Gloria and I to be together this long. With everything the way it is, and divorce running at an all time high these days, yes, we are surely blessed that our family is still together. "AND THERE'S MORE!" I am thanking God, in advance, for at least 30 more great years…

Hey 48days Family,

I received this quote this morning from Nightingale Conant. It is AWESOME! When I read it, the first person I thought of was our own master mentor motivator and super wise friend Dan Miller. Of course this is Mr. Earl Nightingale's quote, but I couldn't help from thinking he got it from Dan! Hehe.

"The biggest mistake that you can make is to believe that you are working for somebody else. Job…

Thank you Archie for your welcome. I'm sure it will take me some time to connect, but I am amazed that a community of such quality is available to me at no cost. Pass my thanks on to the team.

I am a software developer looking to connect with others with software product creation expertise. I'm also working on a homeschool curriculum and have joined the eLearning group. Any tips on how to find and connect with other software product developers?

Archie, Thanks for commenting on my blog!  I think the food smells are probably the most evocative of all.  My grandmother cooked up a mean pot of beans at least once a week and I loved the smell...and I loved to crumble up her homemade corn bread into the bowl of beans with a dab of horseradish! Makes my mouth water just thinking of it!  Glad I brought back some good memories for you.  Joanne

Thank you for the welcome! I feel like I just sat in the cockpit of a fighter jet and am trying to count all the screens and switches and figure out which ones to touch first.
