Your place for community & resources to find or create work you love

We are so glad you're here and ready to take the next step! We created 48days.net as a place for community. For people to encourage each other and help each other in finding or creating work that is meaningful.

But frankly, we've outgrown it, so we're moving to provide you new resources.

48Days.net will be closing as it is today on November 30, 2017. Until then current members can click the button below to access groups and resources.

If you're new to 48days.net, connect here for a close up look at our thriving 48 Days Eagles Community and to get weekly free resources and motivation as you find and create work you love.

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 have listed to Dan Miller's podcasts for years! I am hoping to explore new ideas through discussion on this site, as well as help others in any way that I can.
What is your current work situation? Employee, self-employed, generating any income on your own?
I am currently working as a contractor for a great local company. I am their marketing coordinator and love the flexible hours as well as the work that I do for them.
And then...what is your goal/dream for your work life?
As stated above, I would love to move my business to the point of making more money. I do have a business partner and would love to push this beyond the "hobby" stage to something more significant.

I am also FULL of business ideas and would love to just explore my potential and dream big. Some day, I will be a mom and would love to quit my marketing job so that I can work at home.
How about your personal life? Any specific goals or achievements or dreams you are pursuing (or want to pursue)?
I would love to start up an "Idea Catalyst" group in Grand Rapids. I don't know exactly what that means, but I would love to be able to help facilitate the connections and be a resource to people who want to make their dreams happen.

My husband is working on his pilot's license and loving it, but that will be a huge dream realized for the both of us once we are over that hurdle and he is able to actually work as a pilot!

I would also like to be able to run a 5k in under 20 minutes, take a trip to Italy, own a lake house and have four kids of my own, and adopt at least one (some day!).
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 dreamer! I have a "go-getter" personality, and am willing to try new things!
Do you have a website presence anywhere?
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 company offers custom decoration and theme design for weddings! We consult with brides to give them tangible ways to make their wedding dreams a reality, and are also available to help with the "heavy lifting" - creating custom decor, invitations, and the like. This is a brand new service for March 27 Designs. Check it out and let me know what you think!
Feel free to share your Twitter name, Facebook page, and any other social media way to connect with you!

I really do enjoy seeing others lives go from survival to significance and success. I know that you can fulfill your goals one by one. Just be intentional and have clarity with them. If you ever need encouragement just drop me a line.

Thanks for asking about New Start. That is my company name and I help people discover and develop their God given skills and gifts in the areas of personal finance and career. It looks like you are really getting involved, way to go! Have you used Dan Miller's goal setting worksheet in the resources over at 48days.com? If not, I think you might really like it.

Hi Mara,

Just stopping by to welcome you to the amazing 48days community!

Little background on me; I’m a long time member here, who truly believes in the 48 days vision and this community. I can truly testify that the power behind this community is a huge reason for my success and business.

So whenever I can, I like to reach out to see who I can help. If you have any questions, or you start feeling overwhelmed right off the bat, because there is just so much great content, discussions, and just lots of great stuff happening, feel free to reach out and let me know! I would love to help guide you here.

Also, many people who come to this site are stuck in career ruts, need help gaining clarity, finding passion, purpose, and real meaning in their lives, careers, and businesses. If you’re ready to take this part of your life to the next level, then join me in one of the newest 48 Days groups, 180 Degrees to Your Calling.

Outside of that, if you have questions, or get stuck with anything, you can always ask me, any of the 48 Days Advisors, and you can always just post a discussion on the home page forum.

Many blessings on your journey, and by all means… Enjoy the adventure!

~Rob Clinton

Hi Again Mara,

I don't have a podcast. I've thought about it, but it really doesn't fit what I do (i.e. speaking). I might do it someday, but for now, I just find places to be a guest :)

Live It Forward,
Kent Julian

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.

Hi Mara,

Thanks for joining Strengthen My Spiritual Life and welcome to 48days.net! I feel honored that you have joined our group and look forward to hearing/reading more about how we can help each other. I checked out your website and it looks like you have a wonderful side business developing. How is it coming along?

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 and 48days.net!
