Giving money away is something that I would guess most of us here at 48Days already do.I would also guess that you have a plan for earning money, spending, saving, and investing money too.I bet you even have a plan for other areas of life like family, spiritual, relationships, health and wellness.But do you have a plan for giving?Is giving something that you do by accident or on purpose?

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 Mr. Miller from a friend who let me borrow the book 48 Days To The Work You Love. (Quit my job 3 months later!) That book made me realize that I was NOT crazy or alone in my want to quit the job that I had hated for years. The book gave me the courage I needed to move forward. It was like Dan was reading my mind! I heard about 48days.net from Dan/48days Twitter and Podcast.
What is your current work situation? Employee, self-employed, generating any income on your own?
I am self-employed. Generating money from book sales and soon speaking gigs.
And then...what is your goal/dream for your work life?
I am looking forward to being able to support my family and have money left over to give to great causes in the community.
How about your personal life? Any specific goals or achievements or dreams you are pursuing (or want to pursue)?
Live a full life. Give, share, laugh, love.
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!)?
Idea factory. Entrepreneur. Love helping and watching other succeed. Motivator.
Do you have a website presence anywhere?
