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?
Read about it on 48days.com. I hope to gain inspiration from smart, creative people and be able to bounce ideas off of them or combine their ideas with my own.
What is your current work situation? Employee, self-employed, generating any income on your own?
Self-employed. My university lecturer contract was not renewed. I bought your Write to the Bank and knew that was exactly what I wanted to do. I'm currently putting together my web site. No income yet.
And then...what is your goal/dream for your work life?
Speak to groups, hold workshops, write more books, inspire others to find their own strengths and develop them.
How about your personal life? Any specific goals or achievements or dreams you are pursuing (or want to pursue)?
I believe I'm on Maslow's 5th level, self-actualization. I desire to utilize my learned skills along with my innate abilities and fully develop my God-given potential.
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!)?
Very strong in math and analytical skills, having taught finance at the university level for 10 years. Have the ability to make complex ideas understandable, either in writing or by live presentation.
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:
Although I'm still developing my website, I plan to use it as a platform for presenting information and inspiration to others. Truthfully, my main product or service will be myself.

Hi Marilynn, Thank you for your words of encouragement. I think the first thing I have to do is learn my way around this site and get use to posting more. I have a tendency to just sit for hours reading everyone's comments. I will definitely pick up a copy of the book you recommended.

Thank you,

Marilynn, it was great meeting you! I am excited about some of your possibilities in offering coaching to college students for budgeting, finances etc. I am available to brainstorm with you if you would like!

Hi Marilynn,

Welcome to the 4 points compass.

Pei and I had such a great time at Dan's this week.

We are excited about your ideas and are happy to help you in any way we can.

You are invited to get involved in the discussion in the forum. We are talking about higher education: yes, no, maybe.

The next issue of our newsletter will be out in a few days. 4 Points Coaching is a bi-monthly, may we start sending it your way?

Hello Again Marilyn,

Thanks so much for joining both Write It Forward & Speak It Forward. Be sure to jump in on all the great discussions taking place. We value your input and insight.

And FYI, I love these goals from your bio above: Speak to groups, hold workshops, write more books, inspire others to find their own strengths and develop them. I sure think our groups can help you pursue these dreams!

Live It Forward,
Kent Julian

PS Also, if you didn't check out the free e-resource I offer entitled Goal-Setting That Actually Works! ($47 Value) to those who join the REAL Success E-Zine community (also free) at www.liveitforward.com, be sure to do so. I think you'll get a ton out of both resources.
