 In this group I want to be able to help those musicians who want to "put feet to their music". Which means to take it somewhere, to set goals and reach them, to make this music thing happen. I want to give counsel through example and then give application.See More

Do I have a market for my business?

My skills and passions led me to have a business in teaching dance, specifically partner dancing such as ballroom, latin, swing, and line dances. In Kansas City, I kept seeing more and more senior communities poping up, and it seems like a lot of the "Baby Boomer" generation are reaching retirement age. It seems to me that the retirement communities could really use more activities for the seniors such as a dance lesson once or twice a week. So, my business would get contracts with…See More

Welcome Douglas,

I try to take time each week to welcome new members to 48Days.Net. So, let me say "welcome" to you! I know you will find this to be a great site filled with people who are experiencing true success in both life and work.

One thing I noticed on your profile is that you and your wife want to start up your own business. That would be awesome!

Also, I'd like to point out that one of the best places to connect with other liked-minded people here is in the GROUPS section. There are groups for just about every interest you can think of, and if you can't find a group that interests you, you can start one. Groups are my favorite part of 48Days.Net!

Finally, if you happen to be a speaker or author (or want to become either), check out these two groups. They are two of the most popular groups on the site because of all the great conversation taking place:

* Speak It Forward -- REAL Success and Profit for Speakers!
* Write It Forward -- REAL Success and Profit for Writers!

Again, enjoy 48Days.Net. It's a great place to be!

Live it forward,
Kent Julian
