On Marriage (and out of my comfort zone)

Posted on August 8, 2011 at 7:51pm 3 Comments

If you were looking for marriage advice, I'd probably not be on your list of people to ask. I mean, sure, I've been married for 27 years, and my marriage has been through thick and thin. Lots of thin. A couple of career meltdowns, a business failure or two (or ten), foreclosure, bankruptcy (twice), living with in-laws and out-laws, three kids, 28 homes, and even a couple of times where we were, um... between homes. So we've toughed it out and kept it together, but I've never been very good…

Systematic Approach with Goals

Posted on July 31, 2011 at 7:48pm 4 Comments

For a number of years I have run a tiny niche business based on the name of a man who died in 1968. His work has passed into the public domain and I did a bit of work to clean it up, reformat it, and have built a web site, a Yahoo! Group, and a Facebook page to put a little community around it. The point has never been to make a bunch of money, but to preserve his work and introduce more people to it. Since it is a tiny niche I have been able to maintain the number one spot in Google…

The Futility of Goal-setting

Posted on July 17, 2011 at 8:12pm 1 Comment

When I decided to leave the Navy after six years, I imagined that I would soon be making great money in the insurance business. My grandfather had done well and there was always room for someone with good sales skills to make a place for himself in that profession. I was also imagining myself successful in Real Estate about that time, and saw myself as owning a profitable little combination office inside a few years. I had a three year plan, a one year plan, and daily goals for my…

Hi Colin,

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 you are logical. That is a rare core competency. It is a gift few people have.

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
