"Very true and I believe we all have to remember this at various times in our lives.  I would like to think that one day I'll be quicker to remember who I am in Christ than looking for acceptance from others.  Thanks for the reminder!"

Fred Polacek commented on Matthew Paulson's blog post Don’t Write a Lengthy Business Plan. Build a Business Model.
"Matthew - I agree with you. I think the formal business plan is too lengthy and seems to be centered around how to get financing than how to be successful.  If you want to get where you are going you have to have a map and your "business…"

Profile Information

How did you hear about 48Days.NET, and what do you hope to get out of being a part of this community?
Originally heard about 48 days from Dave Ramsey. I hope to bounce ideas, get new ideas and determine what it is I really am called to do and how to build my life around that thing.
What is your current work situation? Employee, self-employed, generating any income on your own?
I am currently an employee. I have a few income generating ideas, but have not implemented them due to being overloadded at my j.o.b.
And then...what is your goal/dream for your work life?
A couple years ago it was to eventually lead the engineering firm I work for. Now, I am not so sure that is what my long term goal is.
How about your personal life? Any specific goals or achievements or dreams you are pursuing (or want to pursue)?
Have more time to be involved at church, take more vacations with the family.
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!)?

Hi Fred -- Welcome to the 48 Days community. We're glad you joined.

This is the idea and social networking site for people that want to create their own opportunity.

What are some of your ideas for moving into the work and life you've always wanted?

Depending on what your interests are, there is a wide selection of discussion groups to get involved with.

One group that is worth looking into is 180 Service Station.
Good stuff going on in there.

Another group you'll want to stop by is the 4 points coaching compass.That's my group.
You are invited to get involved in this week's discussion.

Hello Fred,

Just noticed you joined 48Days.net -- WELCOME! It's a great site with tons of great people.

If you happen to be a speaker or author (or want to become either), check out the following 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!

One other thing…I want to offer you a gift. You can download my FREE e-resource entitled Goal-Setting That Actually Works! by joining the REAL Success E-Zine community at www.liveitforward.com. It's a growing and dynamic community of people striving to live WAY BEYOND their average in the most important roles of their lives. I think you'll get a ton out of both the Goal-Setting product and the REAL Success E-Zine. And again, both are absolutely free.

Looking forward to connecting with you!

Live it forward,
Kent Julian
