Pros and Cons of a Pseudonym

Hi All,This might be a strange question, but what are the pros and cons of using a pseudonym?  I have a relatively common name.  I'd like to create an online brand, but the domain and twitter names are already taken.  Specificaly, my name is Jake Bauer, but jakebauer.com, jacobauer.com, @JakeBauer, and @JacobBauer are all taken.So I'm wondering if there's any problem with just making up a new name.  If I become a famous brand, will that be a problem?  For example, if Dave Ramsey's real name was…See More

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 have read 48 Days and No More Dreaded Mondays, and I am a subscriber to Dan's podcast. I'm looking for help finding (and monetizing) my passion, ideas for starting a business, and advice on my blog.
What is your current work situation? Employee, self-employed, generating any income on your own?
I have a full time job, but have tried many things on the side. I am currently writing a blog as well, trying to monetize that. It is very new, so starting slowly and hopefully building a following.
And then...what is your goal/dream for your work life?
I'm not sure exactly what I want, which is one reason I want to join this community. One possibility is to own a business. I have thought about franchising. I also have a passion for sports (that is what my blog is about) so one dream might be to be a sports reporter.
How about your personal life? Any specific goals or achievements or dreams you are pursuing (or want to pursue)?
I am happily married, and we are working on having children. That is my biggest goal currently.
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!)?
I am a high C in the DISC assessment. I am very detail oriented and technically savvy. I am an engineer by trade. I also consider myself a good writer. I am not great at public speaking or relating to people.
Do you have a website presence anywhere?
http://packerguy.com
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:
I love the Packers and write a blog about them at packerguy.com. In addition to news, I provide insight and a little humor now and then. Like me at facebook.com/ThePackerGuy and follow me @Packer_Guy.

Hello everyone. Thanks for the warm welcome. I'm still learning about the site and trying to figure out where to start. One thing I'm trying to remain aware of is not to "steal time" from my current employer, so it'll take me some time to really dive in and see what resources are available.

One thing I wanted to do right off the bat is to ask for some feedback on my new website. Where is the best place to do that?

Thanks again.

Hi Jake,

Just stopping by to welcome you to the amazing 48days community!

Little background on me; I’m a long time member here, who truly believes in the 48 days vision and this community. I can truly testify that the power behind this community is a huge reason for my success and business.

So whenever I can, I like to reach out to see who I can help. If you have any questions, or you start feeling overwhelmed right off the bat, because there is just so much great content, discussions, and just lots of great stuff happening, feel free to reach out and let me know! I would love to help guide you here.

Also, many people who come to this site are stuck in career ruts, need help gaining clarity, finding passion, purpose, and real meaning in their lives, careers, and businesses. If you’re ready to take this part of your life to the next level, then join me in one of the newest 48 Days groups, 180 Degrees to Your Calling.

Outside of that, if you have questions, or get stuck with anything, you can always ask me, any of the 48 Days Advisors, and you can always just post a discussion on the home page forum.

Many blessings on your journey, and by all means… Enjoy the adventure!
