PS In case you're interested, I offer Goal-Setting That Actually Works! to those join the SHOW UP AND SHINE Movement (both are free). You can join by using the box at the top right side of any page on the Live It Forward website. I think you'll get a ton out of both resources.

Hi Maria,

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 imagine. What's more, 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:

* Speak It Forward -- REAL Success and Profit for Speakers!
* Write It Forward -- REAL Success and Profit for Writers!

Enjoy 48Days.Net. It's a great place to be!

Live it forward,
Kent Julian
