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?
podcast answerman. I'm looking for how to get moving in a direction where I'm self supported... not working for someone else at a job I hate day in and day out just to pay my bills.
What is your current work situation? Employee, self-employed, generating any income on your own?
I'm working a job I really can't stand for way under what I used to make when I had a real job until the economy ruined it.
And then...what is your goal/dream for your work life?
I've been trying to figure out how to employ myself. I've tried several online businesses, usually dealing around my artwork, such as my currant artblog at www.mattdegelleke.com, but so far I can't seem to generate enough traffic to make it worth my while to keep investing time in it.
How about your personal life? Any specific goals or achievements or dreams you are pursuing (or want to pursue)?
I no longer have a personal life. I'm too busy working 10 hour days for barely any return or working hard at home trying to get a home based business running.
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 an artist. I've done woodburning, glass engraving, drawing, writing, airbrush, 3d, and just about anything else that puts images on surfaces, and I keep trying to learn more to maintain my interests.
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:
I'm an artist. I enjoy doing things like tutorials in a way anyone can follow or understand. I also like to tell stories through images. So far I've not been able to make any headway doing this though.

Welcome Matthew,

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 think of, and 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!

Again, enjoy 48Days.Net. It's a great place to be!

Live it forward,
Kent Julian
