Idea Pitch: Wild Bird Service UPDATE (don't get excited)

Hello all, thanks to those who showed interest and took time to comment. I thought I'd update you since you took the time to reach out to me. I'll be brief now that I know that Dan may share this!I've been busy with elderly inlaws, checking one into a nursing home last week that has been totally my responsibility, and taking the other to doctors appointments and helping her, and my kids. But, as I told John VanDerMeulen, I have also been hiding behind them too. I want to work, but my family's…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?
I listen to Dan Miller's blog almost daily on my dog walks. Hoping to find a unique niche for a home-based or eventual business. I am a homeschool mom, former wildlife tech for the USFS, bat biologist, outdoor enthusiast. I've been taking backpacking taking home school moms backpacking for 3 years. I want to get people outdoors, enjoy & value God's creation, and find inspiration to better themselves and encourage them to strive to better themselves, take risks, take on new challenges.
What is your current work situation? Employee, self-employed, generating any income on your own?
home school mom, paid science teacher & volunteer co-director for home school program,backpack trip leader to home school moms making a scant net income per trip.
And then...what is your goal/dream for your work life?
I want to have a business, or product, that I can do when my boys are older. I would prefer to work outdoors, like land management, wildlife monitoring/managment, resource conservation etc. I love & miss the mountains, but currently live very, very far from them. I'd rather work for myself, not the government again.
How about your personal life? Any specific goals or achievements or dreams you are pursuing (or want to pursue)?
I would like to live in the mountains again, that's where I feel most inspired and happy.
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 a program leader, a teacher, I am generally enthusiastic. I am the friend that gets everyone else together for coffee, or overnight trips, etc. I am a planner & project oriented. I can be detail oriented. I like leading groups. I enjoy science, data collection and hands-on work, not a business office.
Do you have a website presence anywhere?

BatMam to ...what??!!

Posted on August 5, 2009 at 9:25pm 1 Comment

I was a wildlife biologist with the USFS, a bat biologist, bighorn sheep & bald eagle researcher. I loved my job. I was outdoors 60% of the time, using my intellect too. When I interviewed my future boss of 7yrs, Robin, the district biologist, she said she would rather be a high paid tech, than a policy enforcer. Now, 12 & 9 yr olds boys, currently homeschooling, I have some time to work on the next phase- read, study, become an expert. But in WHAT? Field work and working for the… Continue

Hobby or Business?

Posted on July 28, 2009 at 9:15am 0 Comments

Just wondering, anyone reading this post, and Kevin, do you earn a living doing this, or is it a hobby and a little cash on the side? Do you see income potential for any peripheral businesses, such as backpacking meals, or specific gear? I have just begun teaching beginning backpacking to a specific group of women and although I look forward to teaching and getting outdoors, it takes me away from my family on weekends a lot. A few times a season is fine, I can do that, but its not much of an… Continue

Thanks, Lisa. Great to hear you're enjoying the show! Many more great ones on the way.


We're settling in here and I'm nearly done building out my studio. Can't wait to start doing live shows again.

Let me know if I can help.

Thanks for the advice and comments. I would like to discuss further your business. I think you have your business set up like I would like to do. I am very interested in speaking further with you about this. I think you could help me to get started and any advice you can provide such as trip lengths, liabilites, pricing, etc... would be so greatly appreciated. Please email me back at Briechert@yahoo.com.

Hi Lisa

Welcome to 48days.net. I want to welcome you to the neighborhood.

I want to extend an invitation to you to join the group I host called "Plan Your Startup | Startup Your Plan" where we are discussing planning for starting a business, as well as actually putting those plans into action!

You can view the video called "Calculate your Freedom Date" where we show you the six (6) key financial factors to consider as you make the transition to self-employment.

Let me know if you have any questions about 48days

Lisa -- Welcome to 48Days.net. And thanks for already being a listener of my podcast.

You’ll find this to be a warm, encouraging and innovative group here. If you’re looking for an idea – just stick around. This group is full of great ideas and strategies to make them come to life.

Actually it sounds like you've got lots of ideas already -- and a business up and running. Your blog site certainly shows your love of the outdoors.

I see you've already jumped right in here with comments and questions. That's the perfect way to get involved and benefit from the brainpower of the others here. We’re glad you joined us! -- Dan Miller – 48 Days

Hey Lisa! Thanks for commenting on my blog...I appreciated it. :)

Also---Welcome to 48 Days. This is a great community.

And speaking of the mountains....we miss them too. We're from Montana but have lived in middle TN for almost 4 years.

Bless you,

Lisa, WELCOME to 48Days.net! I’m excited you’ve become a member.

This is a great place to learn about opportunities and then put your plans in action. It sounds like you need to move to a more inspiring place in the mountains. What parts of the country do you connect well with? I love CO and I'll be back there in a few months.

You might consider joining the Leap group. There are some great discussions going on that will likely be very profitable for you.

Again, glad to have you here at 48Days.net.

May you always work with passion,

Justin Lukasavige
