48days style mailing list and forum in 1

Hello Everyone,In an effort to build my own "tribe" I want to set up a combination forum / mailing list, where you can sign up for one, and automatically be signed up for the other tool, so if a new user asks a question in the forums, then I can post a reply and they get an email reply back with my answer.  I would really like both tools to be connected, one sign up to be a part of the community.  The tool needs to run on the same platform requirements as wordpress.  I'd like to use a tool that…See More

Profile Information

How did you hear about 48Days.NET, and what do you hope to get out of being a part of this community?
48 days to the work you love. I hope to get inspiration to grow my wedding videography business, as well as offer helpful advice on a range of topics to the other forum participants for their business ventures and what they can do to become successful. I hope to become a resource that people can come to turn to for trust and respect on their technical and business issues.
What is your current work situation? Employee, self-employed, generating any income on your own?
I'm working 1 full time job, 1 part time job, and I've started my own wedding videography business.
And then...what is your goal/dream for your work life?
My goal is to be completely debt free including my house (following the Dave Ramsey plan), and to have a full and complete backup plan to replace my full time income with my own business ventures, being known in my community as a quality source for IT support and video and web marketing solutions.
How about your personal life? Any specific goals or achievements or dreams you are pursuing (or want to pursue)?
In my personal life I hope to obediently walk in my God Created Identity, serving Jesus Christ as my personal Lord and Savior and keep him as my #1. I hope to passionately serve my wife, and Love and Cherish her all of my life and keep her as my #2, and I hope to lovingly raise my new 9 month old baby daughter to come to know and love the Lord.
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 am wired for helping people through technology, and in some ways I am already living out my dream job. I hope to offer encouragement, advice, coaching, training and Technology resources to help business and individuals achieve their goals and dreams.
Do you have a website presence anywhere?
http://avchdprosolutions.com
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:
avchdprosolutions.com is your place for technology and camcorder advice for everyone from family members to video professionals.

Hi Chris,

I looked at your http://www.coveredbuns.com/ site. Looks good. I was wondering which package you went with. Is that the pro bundle or the business bundle?

Chris,

Just noticed you joined 48Days.net -- WELCOME! It's a great site with tons of great people.

If you happen to be a speaker or author (or want to become either), check out the following 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!

One other thing…I want to offer you a gift. You can download my FR EE e-resource entitled Goal-Setting That Actually Works! by joining the REAL Success E-Zine community at www.liveitforward.com. It's a growing and dynamic community of people striving to live WAY BEYOND their average in the most important roles of their lives. I think you'll get a ton out of both the Goal-Setting product and the REAL Success E-Zine. And again, both are absolutely free.

Looking forward to connecting with you!

Live it forward,
Kent Julian

Hi Chris -- Welcome to the site. We're glad you joined.

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

I'd love to hear more about your video business.

Depending on what your interests are, there is a wide selection of discussion groups to get involved with. If you don't find one that quite fits your liking, you can always start one.

One group that is worth looking into is 180 Service Station.
Good stuff going on in there.

Another group you'll want to stop by is the authentic life. That's my group.
Good discussions and quite a bit of activity as many of the members share their thoughts and insights. We look forward to your participation.

-Joel
