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?
church marketplace ministry
What is your current work situation? Employee, self-employed, generating any income on your own?
Retired as a paramedic for the Chicago Fire Dept in 2013 and I am the Managing Partner for Gally Development Company which invests in Real Estate, manages property and construction projects as well as consulting. I am currently looking to develop 4-5 additional streams of income either thru businesses or other types of investments
And then...what is your goal/dream for your work life?
I am pursuing a goal of having my passive income streams exceed my expenses with the ultimate goal of retiring from my employee/self employed jobs. Goal reached in 2013
How about your personal life? Any specific goals or achievements or dreams you are pursuing (or want to pursue)?
My deepest passion is my family especially my wife who has always believed in me. Along that line my goals are to deepen my marital relationship, mentor my children to live out their dreams in a viable,realistic and practical way that produces extraordinary even supernatural results in their lives.
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 have strong management abilities, can advise or educate those who are willing to learn and I believe I have the gift of giving. In other words I can share from what I have.
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?
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:
My business is investing. That means peoples lives, real estate, business, consulting, sales, marketing and educating and any combination of all of these. I consider my business model as dynamic and expandable so I am always preparing for growth. I also believe that partnerships are a key to taking any business venture, idea to the next level of success.

Can you see the end at the beginning?

I wonder how many of us give up on a dream or pursuit of a worthwhile cause due to adverse or difficult circumstances.  Seemingly unending frustrations or discouraging results as we work toward that dream can temporarily defeat the most determined dreamer.  This reminds me of a great story about Florence Chadwick.  She was the first woman to swim the English Channel.  She spent years of training and disciplined her body to keep going long after it needed rest.  Doubt crept in as she stood on…


Change your view and your success will skyrocket!

Here I am sitting at my desk in my new home office looking out to the west as the sun begins to make it's way down.  I see a beautiful fishing pond, a tree filled lot, beautiful homes, an amazing neighborhood and I have a great sense of peace deep within and I know that I am a success.  This view out my office window has simply served to remind me of God's blessings and goodness and that is a huge part of my success.  I mentioned that this is a NEW office because in my old office my desk was…


Finding the Money!

Posted on June 27, 2013 at 11:27am 3 Comments

Without a doubt money is never the problem when it comes to funding your next great business venture or real estate deal or your invention that is poised to change the world.  The greatest obstacle to funding your next venture is your thoughts.  In the words of one of my mentors, Robert Kiyosaki, "there is no greater obstacle than a thought."  If you THINK about it you will see that  I am on to something here.  When I understood this concept it enabled me to purchase a million dollar…


False Expectations Appearing Real

Posted on April 22, 2013 at 10:29am 2 Comments

One week ago today, the bombings occurred at the Boston Marathon. I watched a lot of the news coverage of the Boston Marathon bombing and the manhunt afterward. I rarely watch the news because it is depressing. 
My prayers go out to everyone in that horrific event last week. The individuals and families of those who were killed or injured most importantly, but also for what was stolen from every runner and athlete. 
My understanding is that the Boston Marathon is the…

Thanks! Will go check it all out!

Thanks Michael,

I agree with your definition of wealth being tied to passive income.  Thanks for your insight!  Are you familiar with Pat Flynn?  I am guessing you are, but if not his Podcast fits very well into that philosphy.

Tell me about real estate investing for the debt averse?

Thank you Mike! I appreciate the welcome. What advice would you have for a newbie to the investor side of real estate on buying my first deal? Dont have much cash to spend or to hold a property at the moment so would love to do a deal as economically friendly as possible.

Mike – Thanks for the warm welcome.  I’m in the process right now of laying out my Five-Year plan to become self-employed with multiple streams of income.  Real Estate investing will be in that mix.  I look forward to learning from you and other members on this excellent site.
