Profile Information

How did you hear about 48Days.NET, and what do you hope to get out of being a part of this community?
My friend said this was a supportive community of writers and fellow entrepreneurs. I am hoping to gain guidance on how to blog and market my new book online.
What is your current work situation? Employee, self-employed, generating any income on your own?
I am a part-time secretary with my first book coming out early this summer.
And then...what is your goal/dream for your work life?
I want to find out how to make my book visible to as many people as possible.
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 am detail oriented, energetic but grounded, spiritual and insightful. I write devotionals and my upcoming book is a collection of those.
Do you have a website presence anywhere?
http://booksbykatherine.com
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:
"Seeing God in the Simple Things" is coming out later this year! I am so excited to present this work that has been three years in the making. How could the move Men in Black II give you a better understanding of Christ's humanity? Could M&Ms really teach a child about mercy and redemption? How does God feel about it when we grieve the loss of a pet? These are answered and many more. Please stay tuned for the debut date!

Hello Katherine,

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 interested in writing. If so, consider joining the Write It Forward. There are some great discussions going on that will likely be very profitable for you.

Plus, you might want to check out Speak It Forward as well. It's another group I'm involved with that has a lot of activity taking place.

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

Live it forward,
Kent Julian
