"CD Baby is great. I've used them since the late 90s. If she needs a website, I recommend Host Baby for that. For $20 a month it includes many features that are user friendly. View mine at www.jazzysaxman.com."

"Thanks Mike! We went with CDBaby and was fairly simple. 1 annoying thing, they seem to be 3 distinct companies but portray themselves as 1. A bit confusing but we overcame it. We did the 100 hard copies to get some in hand for a conference and then…"

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'm aware of 48Days.net from the podcast. I am here to connect with like-minded folks and offer my expertise as a Brand Coach. I can offer feedback on: logos, naming, websites and branding.
What is your current work situation? Employee, self-employed, generating any income on your own?
I am currently self-employed. I have 20 years of experience in Branding, Logo and Identity Design, Graphic Design, Textile Design (screenprints and fabric prints), Printing and Prepress, Training/Teaching and Technical Documentation. A link to some of my work is below.
And then...what is your goal/dream for your work life?
I am pursuing several revenue streams right now including: Brand Coach, Graphic Designer, Social Media Consultant, Artist and Author.
How about your personal life? Any specific goals or achievements or dreams you are pursuing (or want to pursue)?
Physical and spiritual health are very important to me and I pursue both regularly. I just bought an introductory flying lesson for my birthday, so that's one more thing off my bucket list!
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 rare INTJ able to create complex mental models of systems and organizations and then run mental senarios to error-check them. I am a gifted teacher, able to gauge the proper pace of teaching as well as create multiple analogies to flesh out the concept and drive it home. I am an excellent documenter of systems and procedures. I am a talented artist.
Do you have a website presence anywhere?

More than one website?

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:

Hi Michael,

Welcome to the Unlock Your Passion group!

I'm so glad you've decided to join.

You're automatically entered to win one of three 48 Days products for joining the group as one of the first 48 members. Check out the products I'm giving away.

In order to get the most out of the group go ahead and jump into the discussion we have going on right now.

I'm an INFJ, so we're practically personality cousins. (My Dad is an INTJ and we have some really good philosophical discussions that no one else "gets".)

I wish you much success in your pursuit to live and work in your passions. 

I look forward to connecting with you further in the group.

All My Best,

Adam Rico

Hello Michael,

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.

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, it sounds like you are a communicator and interested in speaking. If so, consider joining the Speak It Forward . There are some great discussions going on that will likely be very profitable for you.

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

Live it forward,
Kent Julian

Hi Michael -- 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.

I'm curious, what are a few ideas that you can do for yourself to help you figure out your next best steps?

Depending on what your interests are, there is a wide selection of discussion groups to get involved with.
