"Darren, I had a 1964 T-Bird, white with black top.  It was gorgeous - but just one of many, many cars I've had.  Sold it shortly after our daughter Ashley was born."

This is just a fun question for the day. What is the one car you still wish you had?Mine, the 1965 Pontiac GTO, of course.  It had a tri-power 389, M-21 four-speed manual transmission and was a whole lot of fun.  See More

Hi everyone,I thought I would start looking around for a way to get an eBook cover done.  I am about ready to start that part of the writing process.If all goes well, which I expect it to, I would be looking at Nook, Kindle and other eBook formats.  I don't know a whole lot about those strategies either.  If this all works pretty well, then perhaps a physical book may come about. Any thoughts, recommendations or ideas would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks!DarrenSee More

Back to my Passion, a Spiritual Journey

Good evening everyone,I thought I would just post some thoughts about what I seem to be coming back to.  It has also involved soul searching, conversations and more "coincidences" (which I do not believe in).  Something I have found out more so over the past couple of years and much more clearly lately is I am not a multi-tasker.  I can handle a few things within a particular event, but not lots of events with lots of things.  I have even read an article or two saying that multi-tasking is bad…See More

How did you hear about 48Days.NET, and what do you hope to get out of being a part of this community?
Been listening to Dan Miller for a few years. Attended the CWE class, which was a great experience.

Also love to hear the advice and conversation here on 48Days.net. What great support that is here!!
What is your current work situation? Employee, self-employed, generating any income on your own?
Employee and working on self-employment.

It seems that prior to my stroke, I was told by someone very special, "You are suppose to do this." To help people hear this great story and also help them find their passion and move forward to make it a reality. Read the story at www.WalkWithStRaphael.com to read the rest.
And then...what is your goal/dream for your work life?
This is what "I am suppose to do"... Help others figure out and act upon their God given talents and passions. From here a person can live in their Passion, become Healthier and live Happier (more joyful).
How about your personal life? Any specific goals or achievements or dreams you are pursuing (or want to pursue)?
To reach my goal of working and living my passion along with my family. To gain more time with my family and set an example to our children and others, that they can do the same.
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!)?

Good evening everyone,

I just wanted to share that I had my first speaking engagement with the Rotary Club here in San Antonio, Florida.  It was about my stroke story and seemed to touch the folks there.  It was a learning experience for me as well and can't wait for the next sharing time.  The post below is short and sweet, but the story can be found there as well.  See what you think and post a comment there if you like.

Thanks and God bless!!!…

Darren, welcome to the Doing Drupal Websites group. Drupal is fun and powerful and definitely better learned among friends.

Thanks for your inspirational comment!  The older I get the more I'm realizing that life needs to be more about balance and what makes you happy rather than complete dedication to an income career.

Thanks, Darren. I hope the price is right. ;)

 

Staying at the top of your creativity is key. I generate a lot of ideas but end up tossing most as I develop them further. Good thing I have a lot!

 

The thing you'd likely enjoy there is the Wednesday and Friday features. Tips and techniques to help you connect, build, and engage with your community.

 

In the techniques section I talk a lot about using wordpress to the fullest with plugins, techniques to make it faster, etc.

 

If there's every anything I can do to help, let me know. 

 

Oh, I am adding a 7 day free subscription to the site. Should be live quickly.

My pleasure, Darren. I just launched a cool service to keep you motivated and inspired to blog consistently. Can you tell me what you think about http://needatopic.com? 

 

Members have been raving about it since I launched in January. 

 

If I can help, let me know.

At 1:55pm on March 10, 2011, Justin Lukasavige said…

That grown up comment made me laugh. :)

 

Good looking site. I would encourage you to blog at least once every week. If you do it less your community could think you forgot about them. Plus, if they're subscribed, they might forget who you are!

Thanks for connecting, Darren. What's the latest?
