I am really enjoying what I have read thus far and the questions that Mr. Dan has prompted in the book. The common theme so far for me is initiative. I think I have been too risk averse and have…Continue
"Indeed! Great minds must think alike because I will be getting Linchpin to start reading tomorrow! I also have emails into the hosts of the 48 Days podcast, Andy & Justin. They both did (I think) financial counseling/coaching at one…"
It was through 48Days initially. I met Rob in person at Kent Julian's Speak it Forward bookcamp. He was very gracious and thought provoking in our discussions. He was very generous as he gave me a guideline co-authored with…"
"Hi Jerry -
Thanks for the note. I will take your suggestion to check out Rob's content on his site and through this community. I always appreciate a good recommendation.
Jerry, how did you get connected with Rob and this…"
I hope all is going well for you. Sometimes even in the trip through 48Days, you can get bogged down with so much great information and you get sidetracked. Have you considered a coach? I highly recommend Rob…"
I'm glad to hear your time alone was a success. I've been able to intentionally set aside time recently to do the same and I've found that time immensely valuable.
I agree with your assessment of those 2 enjoyable…"
"Hi Marc, Congratulations on your progress. It's so interesting to me how so much of what Dan has written really clicked with me. I have a bookshelf of books that I read once, got excited about for a few days, and then never did anything about.…"
"I apologize, Aaron, for not responding to your kind note until now.
I was able to spend Friday afternoon, as planned, in a very beautiful and secluded shrine in the Missouri wine country. Despite the triple-digit temperatures, I was able to spend a…"
"Great to hear from you, Marc. It sounds like you have already made some progress aligning your priorities to care for your wife and 6 (love it!) kids. Taking time away to collect your thoughts can be a highly valuable process.
I appreciate you keeping me accountable! :) I have kind of fallen off the wagon so to speak. I have spent too much time hemming and hawing but a couple of weeks go made a few decisions to get things going with a friendly and…"
"Hey there Marc! If I do the math correctly you're somewhere around day 63 :) What have you learned so far? If you haven't found a new job, have you found a new perspective on the job you're currently doing? …"
"Fantastic! I think Dan has mentioned this recently: as you prepare yourself for a job search you inevitable find more opportunities in your current position or new opportunities that you didn't see before. I'm realizing more…"
Thank you very much for giving me a bit of your background. I'm sorry for not replying sooner. Life's getting in the way, but it's a good thing. I must admit that my head is spinning a little bit. I have some…"
"You bet! At the time I read Dan's book I was a store manager for The Home Depot. When they first hired me I was one of about 20 hired to be part of this new division. The plan for me was to work in the stores…"
"On Earl Nightingale: There are some less expensive products that you can get from him. Amazon.com has cheap (.89) tracks you can download. Some of these are over an hour long. THey may sound old, but the information is great.
How did you hear about 48Days.NET, and what do you hope to get out of being a part of this community?
I heard of the 48 Days book from Dave Ramsey and have since received the book. I then went to the website and saw the 48 days podcast and started subscribing to it and then heard of the 48days.net site. I'm currently on the fence on what my next career step(s) should be and want to use Dan's products in this discernment.
What is your current work situation? Employee, self-employed, generating any income on your own?
Currently employed in large corporation as a team lead.
And then...what is your goal/dream for your work life?
I'd like to double my income in order to meet family financial goals and either do something on my own or work in an EntreLeadership like organization.
How about your personal life? Any specific goals or achievements or dreams you are pursuing (or want to pursue)?
Finish Dave Ramsey babysteps before age 40.
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 love helping people and finding practical solutions for work-related pinch points. I enjoy coaching and mentoring others as well.
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.
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:
