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.

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 was listening to the podcast, "How do I break free from the chains of mediocrity?" and I was hoping to be able to not only get some help with direction but also be able to help others with things where I'm gifted. I'm a web designer.
What is your current work situation? Employee, self-employed, generating any income on your own?
Self Employed for 3 years after being laid-off but 14 years in my job field as a web designer.
And then...what is your goal/dream for your work life?
I've had so many dreams crushed, I'm not certain anymore. But I do know that I'm very interested in encourageing, comforting, exhorting the people, especially Christians. My relationship with God is very important in all I do.
How about your personal life? Any specific goals or achievements or dreams you are pursuing (or want to pursue)?
I have romantic thoughts about finishing up my college degree, but I can't see a way to do it as the only person earning income in the family. I really enjoy writing, but I'm not confident enough.
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!)?
Strength Finders results are: Responsibility - Connectedness - Strategic - Learner - Belief

I think I'm a good listener.
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?
If you have a product or service to promote (now or in the near future) this is your shot to state it! Say all you'd like:
I'm a web designer who likes to focus on emerging and established brands, especially in the Christian marketplace.

Work vs. Calling

Posted on November 14, 2011 at 2:48pm 0 Comments

I've spent a bit of time wondering about work vs. calling. I've written my thoughts before on these topics on my personal blog. Here's a few links:

Yes these include beliefs and I mention things about God, so if you don't like that, I wouldn't read.

Hi Brandon,

Good to hear from you.

I'm curious, was Paul's calling to preach the Gospel? Or was preaching just one of the vehicles he used to fulfill his calling, (which was probably a lot bigger)?


Hear our latest show.

Hi Brandon,


That's a tough outlook. How has that worked for you?



Hear our interview with Dan Miller.

Good blog post. I hope you also post it in the blog forum here.


I'm curious, in your heart, do you deserve to have a better life; one where you are doing the work you love and making a difference in a way that makes a difference for you?



Hear our podcast with Superbowl big man Devin Wyman.

Hi Brandon,


Good to hear from you. That's a very good academic definition of the Strengths Finder. I guess the next question is: How do you put wheels underneath it?



Hear our podcast with Dan Miller.

Great to have you in the Pursuing Your Calling group. I looked at your website, I am no designer but I love the clean look in your designs. By the way, I used to live in Knoxville, I worked at the Alcoa plant until they closed so I decided to move back home to Kansas City.

Hi Brandon -- Welcome to the 48 Days community. We're glad you joined.

This is the idea and social networking site for people that want to create their own opportunity.

I am a big fan of the Strengths Finder. We use it with all our clients. I'm curious, what would you say is the key to tapping into some of the information it gives you?

Depending on what your interests are, there is a wide selection of discussion groups to get involved with. if you are interested in getting in touch with the purpose and calling that is on your life, here is the link to ours, finding your voice.

Welcome Brandon,

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 your business seems to be going along very well. Let me know if there is anything I can do to help.

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
