I heard about this site from the 48 Days Podcast.

As a part of this community, I want to interact with like-minded people in order to share and grow.
What is your current work situation? Employee, self-employed, generating any income on your own?
I develop tools and processes mostly related to natural food and farm related "homestead" products.
And then...what is your goal/dream for your work life?
Ultimately, my work is for the glory of God.
How about your personal life? Any specific goals or achievements or dreams you are pursuing (or want to pursue)?
I dream of a world in which people are intimate with their food.
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!)?
By temperament, I'm an INTJ. I like to work with my hands. I'm very analytical and love designing and building systems.
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:

Luke, it's interesting to me that we have several common interests and experiences, including growing healthy food and working with neutron meters!  I'm went to your saltmakers.com website and am fascinating by your chicken system.  I plan to have land for that some day (living in an apartment right now, so no chickens allowed).  I'm curious to hear about your long term health issues, and how you worked through them.  I've had some health challenges as well (injuries and resulting chronic pain), and my journey in overcoming those has blossomed into me pursuing a new business venture.

Hi Luke,

Welcome to the Unlock Your Passion group!

I'm so glad you've decided to join.

One of the best ways to get a lot out of the group is to start a discussion or join one. 

Feel free to go ahead and jump into the discussion we have going on right now.

It's an exercise I like to have people do where they name their top 3 favorite movies to see how they might be connected to your passions - we'd love to hear yours.

I wish you much success in your pursuit to live and work in your passions. 

I look forward to connecting with you further in the group.

All My Best,

Adam Rico

Hi Luke -- Welcome to the 48 Days community. We're glad you joined.

This is the idea and social networking site for people that want to create their own opportunity.

I'm curious, what are some of your ideas for moving into the work and life you've always wanted?

I see you joined my buddy Kent Julian's group. That is a good move. He's a great guy. We've been friends for years. Here's the link to the audio podcast we did together.
