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?
Thank you, Ashley for inviting me to join this group. I look forward to possibilities that may come from connecting with like-minded souls on this journey of discovery / self-discovery...of what is our true calling...our passion ....and how might we share that with the world....and turn on the light in others.
What is your current work situation? Employee, self-employed, generating any income on your own?
Self-employed, a dentist.
Lately I call myself a 'fudge-making story teller...and being half Italian I tell my best stories when my hands are (busy doing great dentistry..with a captive audience :-). I do add to peoples qualities of life by enhancing their smiles.
And then...what is your goal/dream for your work life?
To find clarity on my expanded calling outside of dentistry. I would like to be a best selling author, speaker and coach. (transformational leader -- personal development and spiritual coach). Most recently earned a 'Story-Coach' certificate.
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 connect deeply and genuinely with people. What you see is what you get. Each morning, I engage to be sure my 'light' is on, then I try to be a catalyst/uplifter for others to 'light up'

Hello My fellow 48 days.net friends and family!

I am sharing a message my friend, Eva Gregory just sent -- and I think it is a great idea!....

"First of all I hope you've been enjoying the Holiday Season and want to wish you a Magical Year of Love, Light, Laughter, Peace and Prosperity in 2013!

Someone on facebook posted a really cool 'ritual' I have decided to participate in this year and I invite you to join me.

6 Days of Thanksgiving! Who or what are you thankful for?

Posted on November 16, 2012 at 9:43am 2 Comments

I don't know about you but it seems as Thanksgiving Day is becoming lost between the shuffle. Can you feel it in the air? The hustle and bustle. I do have friends in the retail business and I understand the power of 'Black Friday'  for their bottom line....but Black Friday has been advertised since Halloween. And in our town -- Black Friday is actually starting Thanksgiving Thursday afternoon.  Two local radio stations have been playing Christmas music since November 1st.

Would you…


Can you hear me now? Are you listening...really listening?

“We are blessed with two ears and one mouth.  Perhaps we should consider listening twice as much as we speak.”—Anonymous-

A while back I was co-coaching with a mentor on "Life Skills for Personal Excellence".  The lesson for the week was "Listening-Responding" (as opposed to 'hearing - reacting' as many of us have been programmed to do).  I come from a large Italian-Irish family, not only to we tend to be the loud family…

Karen, Thanks for allowing me to use your story.  I'll be sharing with the women this weekend in the Called Woman conference in Marietta, GA.  So you may feel your ears burning.....in a very good way!  Blessings to you and send me an update now and then. I send you a big virtual hug! jfm

Wow! Karen, thank you so much for your awesome update.  I am THRILLED about Homewood Stories and how well it is doing...but more than that, I am THRILLED you are working within your passion.  That what you are doing is bringing out a part of you that makes you light up and get in that creative zone where time stands still.  How exciting for you.  I hope you don't mind if I use you as an example of a creative-long-buried-and-now-released when I speak this weekend at the Called Woman conference in Atlanta.   You are a perfect example of what I am trying to get across to everyone. We are ALL creative....but some of us just don't believe it.  I am so excited for you and I hope we can one day attend one of your story nights!  Blessings to you my friend!  Keep me updated on your exciting journey!  :)

Great post, Karen! With a clinical background in dentistry and having consulted and coached in the medical and dental communities, I’m always thrilled when clinicians understand the importance of making sure that patients are heard. Well put!! Listening creates greater patient loyalty and gives practitioners a window into the patient’s world. This can ultimately supplement the medical history with clues regarding diseases and/or physical issues (e.g., stress) which often manifest in the mouth. Great reminder to keep honing our listening skills!
