"Hi Brian, as far content creation I am doing my best to blog once a week, although I'm still pretty slow so it's been averaging around two weeks per post. I'm also posting the blog to twitter and facebook.
As far as promotion,…"
"Hi Jerry! This is some awesome feedback! Thanks so much! The http://penningtontraining.com site is the one I really want feedback on. I created some confusion since in my first introduction I had the blakepennington.com site as my online site, but…"
"Hey Tom! Thanks so much for taking a look and for the feedback! You may have been looking at my blakepennington.com website. Can you check out the online training site at http://penningtontraining.com?
I think I added some confusion by my initial…"
"Good evening, Blake...
I spent a few minutes on your site and started making notes on the design...and then noticed the link on your home page to penningtontraining.com. Now I'm confused. Most of the notes I made about the "Blake"…"
"Blake, I know I'm late to your launch party, but I just looked at the site. Very solid. A few things you may want to consider especially in light of wanting to grow your list.
1. Add trust seals to the footer.
"Thanks for the feedback, Andrew. The response has been okay. Training online is a relatively new concept, so I've been working a lot on trying to simplify the concept for my audience. I'm also trying to build my email list at the same…"
Your web site looks great. Now that it has been up for a few months, I'd be interested in knowing what type of response you are getting. What is working well for you? How is your business going?"
"I see someone already suggested coaching. My mom is a certified coach through coach approach ministries. Her niche is "spiritual growth," however, her training is very diversified and can help people in all walks of life, including career…"
Thanks so much for your feedback, greatly appreciated! I understand where you're coming from. I guess in theory having a few blog posts up already would add more credibility for first time visitors. I think I've decided to get a…"
I think you have a great business idea and a very professional looking website. I had several ideas about how you might consider rewording some of the areas of your website to make it clearer to potential clients as to what they can expect…"
"I really like the look of the site - so clean and easy to read.
The pictures that include training happening over a computer are excellent because they help me to visualize what I am getting if I work with you.
The only thing that threw me off was…"
Thanks so much for taking the time to look at my website! I've already made some of the changes you suggested. I made the testimonial font bigger; I took away two testimonials, but I can always add them back or add them to another…"
Thanks so much for your valuable feedback. I've already made some of your recommendations. I re-positioned my list grabber (and will continue to experiment). I agree it needed to be moved further to the top. Still contemplating on…"
How did you hear about 48Days.NET, and what do you hope to get out of being a part of this community?
I've been following Dan for six years. I'm also a Dave Ramsey fan, so when Dave recommended Dan's book "48 Days to the work you love" back in 2008, I bought it about a half second later:)
What is your current work situation? Employee, self-employed, generating any income on your own?
Full time, Director of wellness for a University. I've also been personal training on the side in people's homes and in a local gym for five years. I do this before and after work.
And then...what is your goal/dream for your work life?
To continue making side income with personal training. I love my day job, but I also love changing people's lives with personal training. It also feeds the entrepreneurial drive I've had my whole life.
How about your personal life? Any specific goals or achievements or dreams you are pursuing (or want to pursue)?
I've been personal training for five years; recently, however, I've created a website with the hope of transitioning my training online.
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!)?

Blake -- Welcome to 48Days.net. I developed the concept of 48 Days to help people have a reasonable timeline for making real change in their lives. And yes, I’m convinced 48 Days is a long enough time period to evaluate where you are, get the advice of people you trust, decide what your best options are, create a plan, and ACT.
This site is the place where you can get advice from people you trust. You’ll find this to be a warm, encouraging and innovative group. Many of the members here have already found their focus and are up and running with work that is meaningful, purposeful – and profitable. Whether you are arriving here with your business fully formed or are still in the beginning stages – just stick around. This group is full of great ideas and strategies to make them come to life.
We have lots of trainers and people interested in nutrition involved here. Just check out some of the active groups to learn and share in those areas.
Thanks for being part of the 48 Days family. We’re glad you joined us! Dan Miller – 48 Days
