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 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?
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:
The Four Week Financial Turnaround is available now. http://amzn.to/NTZ6RG
