How did you hear about 48Days.NET, and what do you hope to get out of being a part of this community?
I have purchased some of Dan's products in the past, including No More Dreaded Mondays; Living, Loving, and Working; and subscribe to his newsletter. Possibly I learned of 48 Days from Dave Ramsey? I'm not sure! I hope to get a good dose of daily inspiration here and to network with other like-minded people.
What is your current work situation? Employee, self-employed, generating any income on your own?
Self-employed with my hubby in our pet sitting business.
And then...what is your goal/dream for your work life?
I would like to see us grow our pet sitting business to a six-figure business and beyond. It's very important to us that our work life be centered around family life and not the other way around.
How about your personal life? Any specific goals or achievements or dreams you are pursuing (or want to pursue)?
I'd really like to travel more... once a year at least to someplace new and at least twice a year to visit family. I've never been in a position to do this before and want to get to the point where I can do this every year for the rest of my life. :-) I would also like to volunteer more - again, more time now!
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'm a compassionate and very caring person, have lived a lot of life, and people tell me that I and my family are an inspiration to them. I love to learn and am lost without a book (or my Kindle) in my hands for more than a day!
Laura - Yes posture is very important! I'm learning that too. Thanks for sharing the story about your son and your family's journey. I've heard many stories so far (despite being new into all this) about people dealing with scoliosis and pain, and I've heard that many of them are experiencing significant improvements when they are able to address the muscles, bones, tendons, ligaments, fascia, and all the other stuff that goes into supporting our posture. I hope your son is on the road to getting better? I am excited about getting my business started and helping people who are having difficulties with their body (as I have!). I'll let you, and everybody else at 48days, know when my site is up. I'd love to hear what has helped your son the most if you are willing to share...
Thank you Laura. At our current debt payoff rate, we will be finished with the second mortgage by the end of August. I'm very eager and excited, and it seems to be moving too slowly right now -- especially since it's so close.
You can do this. I don't know your story, but I began the debt payoff journey as a single guy, then in the process got married, got my wife on board, helped her finish college and get her degree (she had one year left), all while I was only making 35k or so. We've been able to make the biggest strides now that she has a full time job too.
48days.net and the Dave Ramsey show are filled with people who are working towards debt freedom, and we all know that you can do it too!
Thanks for joining Strengthen My Spiritual Life! I feel honored that you have joined our SMSL group and look forward to hearing/reading more about how your journey/story progresses. :)
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.
Welcome again and thanks for joining us in Strengthen My Spiritual Life on this fantastic 48days.net community!
P.S. If you are interested, I have also created a series of free training videos on how to study the Bible better. If your interested, they can be found on ReflectiveBibleStudy.com.
P.P.S. I have a few copies left of the a free book I'm giving away to all the Strengthen My Spiritual Life members. If your interested, learn more about it here.
PS Also, in case you're interested, I offer a free 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.
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 you are a fan of Dan Miller. so am I. His stuff has made a huge difference in my life and work.
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:
