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.

Hiya Ms. Iron Jen! :-)
Thanks for accepting my "friend request!"

Thanks for hosting the Tuesday video gatherings, too.
I've taken some action. I started a 1 min. Morning Walk Talk for Motivation and Inspiration, using the tools that I have. I'm posting them on the blog www.friarwade.com and a FB page http://Facebook.com/FriarWade 

It's a challenge being a recovering perfectionist, to just jump in again, but jump I have! 

All the best to you. I'm looking forward to interacting and helping others, too!

Jen, Thanks for commenting on my blog.  I think most people who can smell, have something they can remember fondly because of the smell associated.  Bless you!

Hi Jen,

I wanted to reach out to you about an opportunity for vets.

I'm putting together a coaching 1-on-1 program for 5 people that are serious about starting their business. Do you know of some vets that could benefit from this type of coaching? There would be an "application" to help ensure their commitment to the process.

I am offering this at a substantially reduced investment to their business...but only to 5 people.

People will qualify if:

- They are struggling with what steps to take in starting a business.

- They are trying to determine if their business idea will work

- Are unsure of how to spend the funds they do have on business resources.

- Would like help in developing a business plan or value proposition

- They are willing to do the leg work and be coached using skype or phone calls.

If you feel this might be of interest to you or someone you know, let me know and I can shoot you the application to send out to them.

I would also be happy to discuss any questions you might have. Thanks, I look forward to the opportunity.

Brian Richardson

Yep! We were both at Kent's Boot Camp last November. - Phil

Thank you for the kind welcome and encouragement Jen! And congratulations on all your success! As for the baby and weight loss, I am truly blessed beyond measure and have a lot to be thankful for in life. I have joined both the Speak it Forward and Write it Forward Groups, and have interacted with Kent and received the dates for his next Speak It Forward Boot Camp in November. It seems like the premier training program of maximizing one's abilities in professional speaking! 

With that being said, I am currently on Day 10 of the 48 Days process with Dan and have already learned so much about my personality, skills and abilities, and how to discover my passion. Even though I have yet to pinpoint exactly what that is at this stage in the game, I am convinced that this process will empower me to discover God's will for my life along with characteristics of myself I never knew existed, which really excites me! The best times in my life are still yet to come, and I can't wait to enjoy them!
