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.

What do you do if your dream didn't work out the way you thought it would?

Started this discussion. Last reply by Don Roulo Oct 10, 2011. 27 Replies

Since I was 12 years old, I wanted to be a professional drummer in a signed band. That dream became a reality at the end of 2008 when I auditioned for a band called Oh, Sleeper. It was my genre of…Continue

Profile Information

How did you hear about 48Days.NET, and what do you hope to get out of being a part of this community?
I first heard of "48 Days To The Work You Love" from a fellow musician and friend. A couple weeks later, I heard Dave Ramsey talk about it in the "Careers" section of his Financial Peace University. The first thing I did was download the Podcast, as I am more of a listener rather than a reader, which then brought me to the website. I've since bought 48 Days To The Work You Love, Wisdom Meets Passion, and listen to Dan's podcast regularly.

I hope to get the support I'll need to live my passion of music and leave my 9-5. From what I've seen, I'll definitely get what I need here.
What is your current work situation? Employee, self-employed, generating any income on your own?
I left the life of touring full-time for a more stable future (stable = working a 9-5 that I hate). I'm currently an Account Executive for Aramark Uniform Services.
And then...what is your goal/dream for your work life?
I've been playing drums for 12 years and I used to tour full-time in a somewhat well-known band. My goal is to become a Worship Director at a church or....... open a small brewery, haha.. There's a bit of a contrast there but it's true!

I haven't really seen myself working for a church in the past but being a Worship Director would combine my love of people and music together.

Aside from that, I've been making beer at home for about a year and a half and I absolutely love it. I never thought anything would come close to drumming but it truly has. I find myself researching about opening a small brewery often and I'm in the beginning steps of writing out a business plan to see where it leads me.
How about your personal life? Any specific goals or achievements or dreams you are pursuing (or want to pursue)?
My Spiritual goals consist of: reading the entire Bible and leading a Life Group at my church. I want to become an all-around, excellent musician rather than just a drummer, become an award-winning home brewer, learn French, travel with my wife, and learn Brazilian Jiu Jitsu just to name a few!
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'm a high "I" on the DISC model. I love people, communicate well, I'm a good listener, and I'm a dreamer.

I'll tell you what I'm not as well: I'm not organized, I don't plan manage my time very well, and I don't like conflict.
Do you have a website presence anywhere?

Sorry for the long delay. I haven't been on this site for a long time, and for some reason, I didn't get a notification of your friend request.
