How did you hear about 48Days.NET, and what do you hope to get out of being a part of this community?
Several years ago, I had someone share a 48 Days workbook with me and loved the message. I have since read several of Dan's books. I hope to meet and network with like minded, motivated people who are searching to live excellence. I want to collaborate and share ideas.
What is your current work situation? Employee, self-employed, generating any income on your own?
I spent the last 9 years working in law enforcement, which I loved. I was injured on the job and my career ended. This situations has forced me to reevaluate my life, goals, skills and passions. I feel myself being drawn to do something on my own. Something that will allow me to turn my skills and interests into an income.
And then...what is your goal/dream for your work life?
I enjoy fixing igadgets and video game systems (Nintendo DS systems). I have always enjoyed working with my hands, but discovered a nack and enjoyment for this repair work after fixing my kids Nintendo DS and an iPod. I have been educating myself and started laying the ground work to do more of this...I would love to be able to generate income doing this type of repair work.
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 love solving problems, learning new things and being challenged. I am organized, motivated and organized. I enjoy working with people and coming up with new ideas. One of my favorite things is the since of accomplishment that comes with looking back on a completed project with a since of pride.
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:
If you have broken the screen on your iPhone or iPod, or need something replaced on you kids Nintendo DS; give me a shout (firstname.lastname@example.org). I can fix it for you. I am mobile and my prices are reasonable.
