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.
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.
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!
Marilynn it was great meeting as well. the beauty of the 1 1/2 day session was meeting some great people. I look forward as well talking and sharing further. The road to success is before you and it is in your hands to walk and create the path. May God bless.
