How did you hear about 48Days.NET, and what do you hope to get out of being a part of this community?
10th anniversary edition of "48 Days to the Work you love" exposed me to the podcast. I learned of the 10th anniversary edition from Entreleadership podcast.
What is your current work situation? Employee, self-employed, generating any income on your own?
I am working two jobs; one part time seasonal and the other full time. I am looking for ways to generate my own income in order to be in control of my own time.
And then...what is your goal/dream for your work life?
I have always thought that if I could get paid to train,brew and read I would be very happy. I love training martial arts, I love to read, and I love to brew beer. So I would say my current goal is to find way to develop passive income via my passions.
How about your personal life? Any specific goals or achievements or dreams you are pursuing (or want to pursue)?
I want to spend more time with my wife and family than I do at work. I don't want to dread getting up in the morning
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!)?
As of now...I am not fully aware of all my talents. I do know I am a thinker,technologically gifted, musically gifted, and I can learn quite fast when I am passionate about something.
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?
I have had an interest in blogging but do not know what to write. I would like to find a better job I would enjoy more. The job would only be temporary to me... I plan on starting a business so my wife and I can control our own lives instead of an hourly job.
