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?
From the podcast
What is your current work situation? Employee, self-employed, generating any income on your own?
I publish a daily investment newsletter to more than 92,000 subscribers through Analyst Ratings Network and operate a network of financial news websites including American Banking and Market News and Video County which garner 2.5 million page views each month.

GoGo Photo Contest, a company that I co-founded with Jason and Stevie Shea, helps animal shelters and humane societies raise funds using donate-to-vote photo-contest fundraising software. GoGo Photo Contest has helped animal shelters raise more than $300,000 in the last twelve months alone.

Lightning Releases is a press release writing and distribution service that I created that helps small companies, authors and non-profits get their messages out to the world. Lightning Releases helps more than 1,000 companies each year distribute their news to top news search portals, popular news websites and relevant members of the media.

I am also currently in the process of writing a book titled 40 Rules for Internet Business Success, which will be available later this summer.

I hold a B.S. in Computer Science and a M.S. in Information Systems from Dakota State University. I also hold an M.A. in Christian Leadership from Sioux Falls Seminary. I live in Sioux Falls, SD with my wife, Karine, and my son, Micah.
And then...what is your goal/dream for your work life?
My dream was to live build an empire of online businesses so that I can live life on my own terms. I've reached it.
How about your personal life? Any specific goals or achievements or dreams you are pursuing (or want to pursue)?
I want to be there for my kids when they're little.
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!)?
Software development and automation, email marketing, personal finance
Do you have a website presence anywhere?
Are you interested in finding a better job, starting a business, growing your current business, writing a book, blogging, podcasting, coaching, speaking, sales & marketing, or something else?

40 Rules for Internet Business Success: Launch Details, Pricing and Bonuses

Posted on July 7, 2014 at 12:39pm 0 Comments

My new book, 40 Rules for Internet Business Success, will be available two weeks from today. I’ve received a ton of positive feedback about the book from people that have gotten early copies. A lot of people have expressed interest in the book and have asked questions about it, so I wanted to provide a few…


Don’t Write a Lengthy Business Plan. Build a Business Model.

Posted on July 3, 2014 at 8:55am 1 Comment

If you were to go out and business degree, there’s a strong likelihood that you would be required to create a fifty page business plan that describes every minor detail of your theoretical business before you graduate. Universities can’t actually go out and make you start a business, they ask you to describe a theoretical business in great detail instead. Creating a lengthy business plan may be a useful academic exercise, but probably won’t help you achieve any meaningful business goals in…

Hi Matthew - Welcome to the 48 Days community. We're glad you joined.

This is the idea and social networking site for people that want to create their own opportunity or find the work they love. 

I've been a coach under Dan's tutelage for about seven years and have been a member of this community since pretty much day one. 

There is a wide selection of discussion groups to get involved with. If you'd like to take a peek at mine, "Raise your Game", here you go

An easy way to get started is by visiting the handy get started tutorial page. You'll find how-to videos and suggestions.

In gratitude,

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.

One thing I noticed on your profile is that you are self-employed. That is great! Keep up the good 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
