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 through my brother who read "No More Mondays". I hope to learn from other people while at the same time building into and encouraging others.
What is your current work situation? Employee, self-employed, generating any income on your own?
Employee, but I have a fairly well thought out idea, (that I got from 48Days.net), that I'd like to really pursue.
And then...what is your goal/dream for your work life?
I want to be a pastor, and have enough residual income coming in from other sources that it will not effect my message or actions as I address members of the body of Christ.
How about your personal life? Any specific goals or achievements or dreams you are pursuing (or want to pursue)?
-Continuing to enjoy my marriage
-Raise my kids with excellence

-Build a robot

Hi Again Joshua,

Thanks so much for joining the Speak It Forward group. Glad you're a part of this great group.

Also, I'm intrigued...build a robot? :)

Live It Forward,
Kent Julian

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.

Hi Joshua - 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.

I'm curious, what are some of your ideas for knowing the right type of business to start?

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

Welcome Joshua!

Good to have you here in the community. Appreciate your desire to serve as a pastor and have residual income from other sources. I just got together w/ a friend this weekend who has been a pastor for about 15 years, but he's taking a break from it. It's been a rough road financially for him, unfortunately. But...he's now finding other ways to generate income.

If you are interested, check out our Pursuing Your Calling group....we'll do our best to help you discover your calling there :)

In Him,

Hi Joshua,

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
