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.

And then...what is your goal/dream for your work life?
I like what I am doing
How about your personal life? Any specific goals or achievements or dreams you are pursuing (or want to pursue)?
become better father and husband. I think that my biggest weakness is leaning how to say no. Because I am a very compassionate person, I realize that this is one of my biggest challenges.
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 am a generator of ideas, many times being able to brainstorm problems on the spot with more than one possible solution. I am and a very flexible team player, usually very willing to help another team member who is short. I am an encourager of people, and easily see one's strengths over their weaknesses. I enjoy working with the disadvantaged and have been doing this since the 1970's. My spiritual gifting is faith, mercy, and encouragement.
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?

Hi Michael,

It appears that your site is still in maintenance mode. Also, if the page is in draft mode, then only you will be able to see it. I suggest publishing the page, then making it password protected if you are concerned that others will see it.  (If you are worried about the special page appearing in your menu, you may be interested in a plugin called "WP Exclude Pages" (Allows you to exclude pages from the navigation list) or simply creating a custom menu (Appearance --> Menu) that doesn't include the page you want to keep hidden.


Hope these things help.

It's almost always the easiest solution, but often times the most overlooked.


I'm happy that we were able to reach a solution!  Have a great evening!

This might sound dumb, but it is a place to start.


Mac OS has a program called 'Preview' that likes to open PDF files. Even though you have Adobe Reader X on your computer, try dragging the PDF file onto Reader (while it is open) on your dock; or right click on the PDF and choose to open it with a specific application--Adobe Reader X.


Too often, people don't realize that Mac doesn't default to opening PDFs in Adobe's software. (As a last resort, open Reader X and then in the file menu, choose 'Open' and pick the file from the list.


If all these options don't work, then I'll be happy to shoot you a archived file of all the lessons.

Hi Michael,

I looked at your site, and I have three or so comments so far:

  1. It looks as though you are using Feedburner to manage your blog subscriptions. That is great. Is your blog going to be different from your newsletter? If so, then I can understand keeping the feedburner link.

    What I would recommend, however, is that most people tie their blogs and newsletters together. (i.e. Their blog posts are queued and sent out via email.) To effectively do this, I'd recommend creating a sidebar signup form that makes it obvious that they would be signing up for your newsletter and getting the ebook as a free gift. It was a little odd in my mind to click on the link like I would go to a download page and then get hit with a form for signing up.
  2. The form page is pretty 'ugly'. I have heard/read that MailChimp does not excel at form design. A simple design like this could be adapted and actually placed in your sidebar, so the visitor who wants to sign up would not leave your site (according to the address bar).  Another idea would be to use a plugin like shadowbox/lightbox to help the transition appear seamless. (To see what I mean, visit www.reflectivebiblestudy.com, scroll to the bottom, and click either yes or the signup link there.)
  3. I don't think your contact page needs to have comments enabled. It seems a little redundant.
  4. I can understand wanting to have ads on your page to get revenue, however how you have them placed seems to break the design of your site. For example, the post that you currently have on your homepage is so short that there is a big gap before your other content begins. It makes the page as a whole look cheesy.

    I'm not sure how much you have made with the ads, but the site design would look a lot cleaner without it.

Hope this helps.

Hey Michael,


Thanks for joining the Wordpress group and getting involved so quickly.  Thanks also for adding me as your friend.  I hope you get as much out of this 48days website and community as I have.


Have a blessed evening.

Hey Michael,

I saw you just joined the Wordpress Website Group and had a question.  I don't have an answer but some encouragement.  Way to get in the game and start trying to make something happen.  That website presence of "http://no" will soon turn into something with your personal brand.  It took me a while to finally get out there and get my two websites up www.5fprep.com and www.1stepcoach.com.  PS- I did get some professional help though.  Good luck!
