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?
I heard about 48days.net from Dan's podcast. I am looking forward to challenging others and being challenged by others with new ideas and creative thinking.
What is your current work situation? Employee, self-employed, generating any income on your own?
I am a professional in Information Technologies.
And then...what is your goal/dream for your work life?
To be awarded Microsoft's MVP status for Powershell.
How about your personal life? Any specific goals or achievements or dreams you are pursuing (or want to pursue)?
I want to continue taking courses continually for personal development such as communication and time management. I currently read a few books a month in personal development and would like to build on that.
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!)?
My greatest wiring aspect is my creativity. This is the foundation for my competency to problem solve. I have learned to focus this skill in many applications. I also have a large imagination allowing for thinking bigger than the box. It also gives me a resource for illustrations.
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?
I plan to launch a new blog soon with a podcast to follow.

Well, currently I am writing an operations and orientation manual for volunteer children workers. I am currently at the last chapter. I am hoping that new ideas and topics will come up as i move on.

Thanks Joshua!  I haven't started writing or speaking yet, though I do have a history of doing both (I'm a published psychologist, though I don't work in the field; I've also got a chapter in a book coming out this year called Extraterrestrial Altruism, which will also help inform the final report of the International Academy of Astronautics' Study Group on Active SETI; I've had a short book published as part of a series for a systems administrators' professional society, USENIX; I've given many talks, both academic and professional).

I'm primarily interested in writing fiction, starting with short stories and children's books.  I also have an urge to write a book and/or speak to correct a glaring problem I've seen in many organizations over the past 20+ years, particularly in the Information Technology arena: lack of adequate access to information.  Too often these days I see companies that grind to a halt when certain key personnel are absent, and generally its not because their expertise is needed, but because they're the sole keepers of certain critical pieces of information that make routine tasks in the company possible.   The book and/or presentation would be targeted at small businesses (fewer than 500 employees), and would provide a method of addressing the issue, using examples and anecdotes. 

I've got a 20+ year background in the IT sector, from systems administrator to security consultant to Chief Technical Officer of a large Silicon Valley consulting firm.  I've worked in one of the nation's largest nuclear-based utility companies, and I've managed and maintained the observation infrastructure for a well-known effort to find extraterrestrial life in the universe.  I've been a member of the boards for two major industry certifications, and helped lead the effort to develop and launch one of them.

I'm trained as an experimental psychologist and have a career in IT, but I've burned out.  I lost my passion for it over a decade ago, and I'm ready for a change.

Oh, and by way of explaining my profile picture:  At the age of 40, I started down the road to being a competitive powerlifter, and in the past three years have held several national records, won several competitions at both the local and national level, and been ranked among the top 50 strongest powerlifters in the country.  I've also overcome several setbacks, including snapping my right arm in half during a bench press.  I now have a plate, a screw, and four pins in that arm and have spent the past two years working through the pain and problems associated with that injury.

Thanks, Josh. This is my second round with the 48 Days plan, so hopefully this time I will stick with it.

Thanks for the welcome.

As for the martial arts, I am taking a "Tactical Self Defense" class from an instructor who was on the Marine Corp martial arts team.  It mostly consists of Doce Pares, a type of Filipino stick fighting.  Otherwise, I think it is a mash-up of several different types, but we really don't learn any particular form.
