"I really like Balsamiq Mockups. Note, it's not a design tool, it's a rough layout tool. It will get you on your way to knowing where everything goes. Then you can start adding colors, gradients, and fonts to the mix."

Rapid Weaver vs. CoffeeCup

Im trying to determine what the best website design software is. I have no HTML/code experience, so that is definitely not in the equation. I've never used either, but I've followed coffee cup for a while. So what are your thoughts/opinions?ThanksSee More

Rich Berning replied to Mike Mankins's discussion Domain Sources in the group My Website Workshop
"Good points, Peder. I'll reiterate what you said, that I wasn't clear about, and that is you will need to buy yet another domain at the place you will host your domain. So if your domain is on BlueHost, but your domain name was purchased…"

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 heard about this from the 48 Days podcast. What I would like to get from this community is advice on how to maximize my newly obtained masters degree from Fullsail University.
What is your current work situation? Employee, self-employed, generating any income on your own?
I am currently a middle school band director in a small public school. I also have a small scale film production company based out of my home.
And then...what is your goal/dream for your work life?
My dream is to become completely self - employed. My ultimate jobs would be to be a full - time technology coach, while presenting sessions at professional development sessions for schools and universities. I would also like to continue to develop my video business.
How about your personal life? Any specific goals or achievements or dreams you are pursuing (or want to pursue)?
I would also love to build a recording studio or a film production suite at my house; another dream that I have is to start a barbecue restaurant.
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 love technology. Anything that has to do with technology completely inspires me. The masters degree that I have just earned is in the area of educational media design and technology. What that entails is using technology to enhance the learning process in every subject and at every grade level. That is what this program is all about.
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:
Professional Development / Educational Technology

Hi Mike, 

So glad you've joined up in the Finding your Voice group. 

The best way to learn how the group works is to get involved in the discussion. Just like life - no lurkers, only participants. 

Congratulations on your master's degree. :-)

Sounds like you have quite a few interests. We have a studio in our home as well and record my show from here. I'm curious, why the strong interest in it for you? 

If you're on Facebook, you're welcome to join in the fun in that group as well.

Can someone point me in the best place to get a trustworthy domain. I know I want to start my own business, but I want to make sure that I at least have a site for people to visit. Please help!

Welcome Mike!

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
