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?
Dan's podcast pointed me in this direction. I hope to improve what I do in my business to increase business and profits by learning from others.
What is your current work situation? Employee, self-employed, generating any income on your own?
I an currently a full time teacher in the public schools and have con-currently been self-employed in some aspect since 1993.
And then...what is your goal/dream for your work life?
I love my job. There are some aspects of it that don't fit me well. If my self-employment income rose, I could "farm out" some of those aspects and become better at what I do well.
How about your personal life? Any specific goals or achievements or dreams you are pursuing (or want to pursue)?
Too many to list...I have a yearly goals sheet inspired by Dan Miller's writing. I would like to perform and record more and also teach some college level and/or private music seminars/courses.

Cruises and quality time with my beautiful wife Susan and our kids and grandkids is always high on the list!
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!)?
Teaching and performing music; public speaking.
Do you have a website presence anywhere?
Are you interested in finding a better job, starting a business, growing your current business, writing a book, blogging, podcasting, coaching, speaking, sales & marketing, or something else?
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:

New Year's Resolutions Are A Waste of Time

Posted on December 31, 2016 at 10:19am 0 Comments

New Year’s resolutions are a waste of time! Most of the resolutions don’t last beyond the end of January. They are bound to fail. Resolutions are often not thought out, have no action steps and are rarely written down. They often lack specificity.

I want to lose 20 pounds by summer

NOT I want to lose weight

I want to earn $12,000 more each year by December

NOT I want to earn more

I will spend every Friday on a date night with my wife

NOT I want to spend…

Learn How To Make Money As A Musician

Posted on February 3, 2016 at 7:42pm 1 Comment

In 1996, I left the Army band and started a career as a self employed musician. I failed at the booking. I sought out a coach, implemented what he taught me and went from 20-30 gigs a year to 125+. I actually had to stop using my system for awhile because I was booked a year out!

I made many other mistakes, including not pricing myself right even after I got the 125+ gigs. In this 1.5 day workshop, I'd like to teach you what I learned so you can get more gigs and make more money as a…

Hi Again James,

Thanks so much for joining the Speak It Forward group. Looking forward to seeing you jump in with both feet.

Also, bro...what a last name. The branding options are unlimited!

PS Also, in case you're interested, I offer a free e-resource entitled Goal-Setting That Actually Works! to those who join the Make The Move email community (also free). I think you'll get a ton out of both resources.

Hello James,

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.

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, it sounds like you are a communicator and interested in speaking. If so, consider joining the Speak It Forward . There are some great discussions going on that will likely be very profitable for you.

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

Live it forward,
Kent Julian
