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.

I noticed that you're getting started with engaging the blog community here

on 48days, and its an honor to have you! I'm a 48days adviser and blog

moderator along with my friend Rob Clinton ,

and we are very intentional with using the blogs and forums in order build

community, help us launch and expand our adventures, ask questions, and

build our personal brands.


As you get started, we want to make sure that we steer you in the right

direction with using the blogs and forums. Be sure to click here to

a href="http://www.48days.net/page/get-started>" target="_blank">http://www.48days.net/page/get-started>;  watch the video Tutorials, and in

there you can watch a segment on how to make your Blogs and Forums really



It's worth the watch, and as you post, you'll begin paying attention to

where you post them. For example, a simple question to help you with "Web

names a href="http://48days.net/profiles/blogs/web-names>" target="_blank">http://48days.net/profiles/blogs/web-names>; " could be brought up

under the discussion forum, where people can give you feedback on your

specific agenda. It would not necessarily get the attention it deserves

being positioned as a blog. Be mindful of  posting a segment of the blog and then redirecting to your blog rather than an e-mail type message to someone.


Starting out is always a work in progress for us, and we'll get better as we

move along. But the awesome thing is we have people everywhere ready to help

you get going, and moving in the right direction. I'm here for you if you

need anything, just ask... If you still have questions about how to write

and post blogs after you watch videos, let me know and I'll help you...


These were just some quick points I wanted to run by you, and hope this

helps you get going, drive more traffic, establish community with the other

bloggers and readers.

Blessings, Ann

Good morning Barak, 

So good to hear from you.

The best way to learn how this community works is to get involved in the discussion. We have an exciting one going on right now. We are encouraging and holding each other accountable in journaling our "successes" and "safety steps". Just like life - no lurkers, only participants. 

They'll be an option for you to join the group if you haven't already. You'll probably find that option at the top middle or right hand side of the page once you get there.

See you in the discussion.


Hear our podcast with leadership expert Mark Sanborn.

Welcome Barak,

I try to take time each week to welcome new members to 48Days.Net. So, let me say "welcome" to you! I know you will find this to be a great site filled with people who are experiencing true success in both life and work.

One thing I noticed on your profile is you are hoping to be self-employed. This website is the perfect place for inspiration and encouragement to help you get started.

Also, I'd like to point out that one of the best places to connect with other liked-minded people here is in the GROUPS section. There are groups for just about every interest you can think of, and if you can't find a group that interests you, you can start one. Groups are my favorite part of 48Days.Net!

Finally, if you happen to be a speaker or author (or want to become either), check out these two groups. They are two of the most popular groups on the site because of all the great conversation taking place:

* Speak It Forward -- REAL Success and Profit for Speakers!
* Write It Forward -- REAL Success and Profit for Writers!

Again, enjoy 48Days.Net. It's a great place to be!

Live it forward,
Kent Julian
