Your place for community & resources to find or create work you love

We are so glad you're here and ready to take the next step! We created 48days.net as a place for community. For people to encourage each other and help each other in finding or creating work that is meaningful.

But frankly, we've outgrown it, so we're moving to provide you new resources.

48Days.net will be closing as it is today on November 30, 2017. Until then current members can click the button below to access groups and resources.

If you're new to 48days.net, connect here for a close up look at our thriving 48 Days Eagles Community and to get weekly free resources and motivation as you find and create work you love.

Profile Information

How did you hear about 48Days.NET, and what do you hope to get out of being a part of this community?
I heard about this at Dan's Sanctuary when he had a get-together/seminar, and I hope to simply connect with like minded entrepreneurs and people who share similar aspirations and passions.
What is your current work situation? Employee, self-employed, generating any income on your own?
I was a self-employed web developer for a few years, then helped found a music-tech startup. I left there a few months ago, and am reevaluating my goals for work and life. I released my first novel in November 2015, and will be releasing music monthly in 2016.
And then...what is your goal/dream for your work life?
My overarching goal is to be able to be flexible enough to pursue whatever venture I'd like, without working solely for a paycheck. I love writing (music, books, blogs), and am constantly writing down ideas for businesses, stories and more. I'm also passionate about sustainability (being off the grid). I want to be able to support my family on my passions.
How about your personal life? Any specific goals or achievements or dreams you are pursuing (or want to pursue)?
I'd like to proficiently play as many instruments as possible. I'd also like to become fluent in multiple languages (both in terms of speaking and coding). I'm trying to get off the grid.
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!)?
Where creativity and technical knowledge meet... I love getting inspired creatively and working out how to reach the finished product, but I'm most passionate in the first 90% of a project. (It's harder for me to finish things)
Do you have a website presence anywhere?
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?
I'm writing more books, blogging, and I think I'd like to start a podcast pretty soon.
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:

Thanks SO SO MUCH for that Reverbnation.com web site. It looks AMAZING and I'm so excited to get up and running on it in the next few days.

Kind regards.

David, Thanks for your input in the Music Studio Group. I wasn't trying to put out a CD, just sell one song as a digital download. I was able to get some info. about digital download licenses for cover songs from another 48 Days friend, "The Free Tech Guy," Andy Traub.
I am interested in the "ReverbNation" thing, though. Can you tell me more about it?

Hey David,

That is why my last album was called, "Fighting to be me" and published my first book entitled, "The Poet and the Billionaire" because I DID NOT want others like us to think they HAD to struggle. Make sure you got to www.myspace.com/thepoetandthebillionaire AND www.youtube.com/jaredmatthewkessler. You can hear some words of encouragement from a former mentor in the "Entertainment Industry" on the myspace page. It is why I endured through 6 YEARS of frustration to get it published for other people with similar frustrations.

I hope it helps and thanks SO MUCH for the kind words on the music. This WHOLE process keeps me amazed. I WISH there was a shorter road. :)

Thanks for the feedback on the Elf song. I wrote the words and music, and the creator of the book had it orchestrated. I'm working on some more music for them and am pretty hopeful.

No relation to Sean McConnell that I know of. Most of my family is from up North.

I am definately considering building some more high-end guitars and basses... First I am trying to seek the Lord's will for my life and some wise counsil... I have been going down the wrong career path for 13 years... more because I got stuck in it, and made some bad decisions years ago. But I finally have a fire lit under me to make some major changes... for several reasons.

Whether or not my new career will be in the guitar industry remains to be seen... but it will always be a hobby and a passion... If I do end up devoting more time to building guitars... you guys on this site will be the first to know...

David... I really liked those Manic Bloom tracks... I am going to keep listening... those are right up my alley and think they will grow on me. I am going to play them for my wife (the music critic) ... very impressive... Our church band leader is into the folk / Derek Webb type stuff. I will send him your links...
