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.

........because I'm back to 48days.net. Every year around this time Dan starts talking about goals in his podcasts. So I start on my goals and one of them is to start a project called 1512Project (see this post for more info.). Which means I turn to this community to for answers, motivation, and accountability. I resolve to get this off the ground in January!

This brings to me my current dissatisfaction with the…

Thank you Matt for commenting on my blog - So true about giving. Also I recently learned that in Hebrew the word giving is NaTaN - it reads the same forward and backward - when you give, you also receive!

Hey Matt,

You are so welcome. Enjoy the site--it's powerful!

As an FYI, one of the most powerful things about 48Days.NET is the many Groups. You can hit the ‘Groups’ tab above and search for anything you are interested in. I happen to lead a couple of groups here for folks interested in writing or speaking. Not sure if you have interest in those areas, but if so, I’d be honored to offer what I can and include you in our discussions. In fact, I'd love to have you jump into the discussion. The more voices, the more we all learn.

Here are the links to these two groups:
* Speak It Forward -- REAL Success and Profit for Speakers!
* Write It Forward -- REAL Success and Profit for Writers!

Wishing you REAL Success...

Live It Forward,
Kent Julian

PS One other thing...I offer a free e-resource entitled Goal-Setting That Actually Works! ($47 Value) to those who join the REAL Success E-Zine community (also free) at www.liveitforward.com. Feel free to check it out. I really think you'll get a ton out of both these resources.

Thanks for getting back with me.

Matt -- Welcome to 48Days.net. And thanks for already being a listener of my podcasts.

You’ll find this to be a warm, encouraging and innovative group here. If you’re looking for additional ideas – just stick around. This group is full of great ideas and strategies to make them come to life.

Looks like fly fishing and beer are your passions. There's probably a hot idea you could develop from one or both of those.

Thanks for being part of the 48 Days family. We’re glad you joined us! -- Dan Miller – 48 Days

It is a great place to get and give support and encouragement in finding your place in the world of work as play.

Let me know if you have any questions about the group, I have been here a while. If you are interested in starting a business (not get rich quick but really doing it right) I encourage you to join the Baby Steps to Business Group
