Employee Referral

Started this discussion. Last reply by Adam Garey Mar 5. 1 Reply

For the company I work for, there are several job postings each week and often HR will urge current employees to refer friends.  I can't help but think of Dan when he says, "How hard can it be?"  The…Continue

Earning it

It surprises me when people talk of buying lottery tickets. They talk about winning it big and never having to work again. For me, the lottery has little appeal and here is why. Gambling has to do with luck and chance is not something that can be much controlled. I would rather be in a place where I can work for a more favorable outcome. Gambling also requires someone else to lose. In most cases, a whole lot of people need to lose. I don't want to take money away from people without providing…See More

I’m lovin’ it!

The work I am doing now is really something I enjoy.  I am a customer business manager for e-commerce.  The client that I work for is well-know locally.  Their household and family products uplift and better lives around the world.  It is a privilege to be associated with them.  My role in business services is such that I enter orders, provide data & information, and research client questions.  It suits me well to use email, spreadsheets, and websites for my work.  I am also glad that there…See More

Collect and sell scrap metal

Recently I was at small gathering of people to celebrate a birthday. Across the table from me was a man in our community who collects and sells scrap metal. Since I am interested in having a side gig myself, I asked him about his venture and he was quite willing to share. I learned that he drives through neighborhoods on garbage day, or the night before garbage day, to see what is out at the curb. Anything at the edge of the road is fair game. He doesn't pay for anything he takes. He looks for…See More

Profile Information

How did you hear about 48Days.NET, and what do you hope to get out of being a part of this community?
Listening to Dave Ramsey. He recommends your book "48 Days to the work you love". I have now read that plus "No More Mondays". I would like to be one of those people who can tell Dave that they are totally debt free, including the house. I also want to be a person who loves his work. I believe it is possible.
What is your current work situation? Employee, self-employed, generating any income on your own?
Looking to generate my own income.
And then...what is your goal/dream for your work life?
I would like to work were I have a good fit. I would like to make more money in order to accomplish family goals at a faster rate. I don't want to live in fear at my job. I have a strong desire to be independent and free.
How about your personal life? Any specific goals or achievements or dreams you are pursuing (or want to pursue)?
I would like to pay off my mortgage soon. After that I would like to be more generous in my giving and I would like to aggressively save. I also would like to have lots of open time to travel, read, and try new things.
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 like to organize and update things and data behind the scenes and out of the spot light. Keeping things calm and doing things right is an inner drive for me. I enjoy intelligent talk because I like to grow in knowledge, wisdom, and information. Improving things, even if small, brings a lot of satisfaction. My 48 Days Profile says I am a Precisionist, that is, high C (correct, compliant) and S (steady, stable).
Do you have a website presence anywhere?

More than one website?

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:
My goal is to start something on my own. Ideas come and go.

A man who excels in his work

Posted on February 18, 2014 at 7:14pm 0 Comments

Back in the day, Larry Burkett would often quote from Proverbs 22:29. "Do you see a man who excels in his work? He will stand before kings; He will not stand before unknown men." The idea being that if you become really good at something, you will not labor in obscurity but you will get recognition for your work.

There is only one problem. Standing before a king, or a CEO or president, does not motivate me. This proverb would be more motivating to me if it ended with "He will prosper…

Keith, welcome to the Embracing Introvertedness group. Glad to have you. I see you're up there in badger country. I have lots of family in the Fox Valley area. Hope your congressman is making you proud. It's great to see you already joining the conversation.

Hey Keith,

Thanks for joining Strengthen My Spiritual Life.


As the 'leader', or launcher of Strengthen My Spiritual Life, I'd love it if you could take a few minutes to fill out a short survey (linked here) to let me know how I can best help you out on our shared journey together, and/or jump into the group by commenting on discussions and/or creating your own and sharing your thoughts, feelings, and reactions as they relate to anything spiritual in our lives.

 

We are currently working through two series in our group together. The first is a series geared at helping all of us grow closer to Jesus and how to accomplish this. The second is a series where I am presenting with a little more detail a slightly new direction for our group here on 48days.net. The overview for the new plan can be found here.

 

Also, if you'd like to share your testimony, Kim Anstaett just started a discussion about this, and several of us have shared our stories.

 

Welcome to the community as we move forward into finding and/or creating work that we love!

~Cam

P. S. If you haven't checked it out yet, you may be interest in Reflective Bible Study. It is a Bible Study website that correlates with the Strengthen My Spiritual Life Plan. Let me know what you think and thanks again for joining our group on our journey together!

Hi Keith,

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.

One thing I noticed on your profile is that you like to improve and gain knowledge. That is great! Those are some of the best competencies you could have.

Also, 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, if you happen to be a speaker or author (or want to become either), check out these two groups. They are two of the most popular groups on the site because of all the great conversation taking place:

* Speak It Forward -- REAL Success and Profit for Speakers!
* Write It Forward -- REAL Success and Profit for Writers!

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

Live it forward,
Kent Julian
