Something to Ponder

Here is something to ponder. You do not like what you do for work everyday. You really enjoy doing what you do at church in serving the Lord. The latter doesn't pay because you are serving in a volunteer position but has come to the point where it takes up at least a part time position time wise. You have tried researching the position you really enjoy and find it doesn't pay well and most of the positions are part time. You talk to you Pastor about what do I do when I dislike my current job so…See More

Where to go

I've been doing some really good studies in the word. Have been lead to play bass on both worship teams at church and I am the AV Team leader. Feel like I am being called to be the worship director. The problem I am having is we just lost our worship leader and now have two new worship leaders. Both are long time members of the church. Doing the scheduling, working with the leaders and the teams is a great thing and I really love o do it. I have a vision for were worship should go within the…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?
Friend on Facebook
What is your current work situation? Employee, self-employed, generating any income on your own?
Currently I am an automotive technician. Employed by a small Ford Dealership. I have disliked the politics and issues of this career for the past 15 years or so. I do it to get by because it is a good pay check. I am in the process of trying to find my niche. My Passion.
And then...what is your goal/dream for your work life?
Up in the air.
How about your personal life? Any specific goals or achievements or dreams you are pursuing (or want to pursue)?
We are currently racing Off-road in our RZR 900 XP. It has been a great family building hobby and we have all enjoyed the 2016 season. Looking forward to 2017. I am looking at building a business of our hobby in someway. We call it Redneck Edition Racing and I am thinking ideas of promotional products, clothing, mugs and other items. Kind of like "Life is Good"
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 I am getting older I am starting to have alot of fun networking with others at the places we visit when we race. I love to design things using computers and can offer fun products such as shirts, mugs, jackets, hats, beanies, stickers and other cool products as we come up with ideas.
Do you have a website presence anywhere?
http://www.redneckedition.com
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?
Yes I am interested in starting my own business and offering fun usable products that people can enjoy.
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:
We have some shirts, hats, beanies and stickers available to help support the team for now as we continue to build Redneck Edition the Brand.
Feel free to share your Twitter name, Facebook page, and any other social media way to connect with you!

David, welcome to the Embracing Introvertedness group. I hope you find the group helpful and encouraging.

On a side note, have you ever had a chance to read a Mackie mixer manual? You can tell they were written by an actual human and are even a little comedic.

Hi David,

 

Thank you for writing back and sharing. I appreciate your trust and confidence.

 

If you'd like, we can carve out some time to chat. That way I can get a better understanding of your situation and how we can help.

 

It is usually easiest for you to talk in the morning, or is afternoon/evening better in your schedule?
