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 my brother Tim, who knows Dan Miller from church. I hope to get help marketing my first novel, "Jak and the Scarlet Thread."
What is your current work situation? Employee, self-employed, generating any income on your own?
Part-time employed as a producer/host of a daily radio show for kids during the school year. Adjunct professor at Lakeland College. Hoping to generate income through writing.
And then...what is your goal/dream for your work life?
I am writing a novel series called "Jak and the Scarlet Thread," geared toward tweens and young adults. My goal is to use the power of story to teach people about God and his ultimate rescue plan for humanity as it unfolds through the people and events of Scripture.
How about your personal life? Any specific goals or achievements or dreams you are pursuing (or want to pursue)?
Work everyday to create memories with my family by doing the things we've always wanted to do.
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 extremely creative, people-oriented and generally have a positive outlook on life. I love to teach people about God and the Bible.
Do you have a website presence anywhere?
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:
I am publishing my first novel in July 2011, called "Jak and the Scarlet Thread." It's a Biblical fantasy adventure series designed to take readers on a journey to discover God and his ultimate rescue plan as it unfolds through the people and events of Scripture. It's been a rewarding challenge to write, and the pre-release reviews have been great. I can't wait to make it available to the public!

oh Nathan...thanks!!

Well...I think you are totally right in sometimes we just need to start over to get a better result and it is worth it in the end. For personal finance journey book, I wil need to take some more time with the cover. This one I wanted "generic" as I wanted it to be for triathete as well go hand-in-hand with the personal finance book at speaking engagements. They are two totally different stories, but the same concept (it can apply to many things in life besides finance and athletics).

I figured with my tight budget, this "free" cover worked out pretty darn well. I can always change it afterwards as I bought the set of 10 ISBN numbers that Dan recommended. I liked his idea of repursing content. If this title and cover doesn't work, I don't mind changing it.

Nathan, thanks for your honest feedback!

My goal? To sell 100,000 copies!  (:  So far, I have 2 for sure sold, so I only have a few more to go.  Dan Miller would probably cheer at this...however, he would boo me for not having a written down marketing plan and for writing this book before targeting a market. Oh well. I wrote it. I am learning and I will do the best I can...that is all we can do right?

Triathletes down time is from now until about January or so.  It is the time when they typically get caught on training programs, reading, etc. 


My goal is to contact trialthlon and running stores and websites to see if they will carry it. Hard as I don't have a physicial book ready and mom and pa shops probably won't be able to carry many at all. Right now, I am learning "how" they want to buy my book to sell. 

I also need to contact podcasters and bloggers that are interested in running, biking, swimming and triathlons to see if they will do a book review.

Ultimately, the book will be used for future speaking engagments I will be doing some to let people know that we can all do extra ordinary things in life.  It is meant to go hand in hand with our personal finance success story. I want people to know with a plan, having perserverance, and having faith, we call all do incredible things in life.

Really, I wanted this "first" book to be a learning process which it definitely has been.  It has been a blast to do so far and like training, been fun to do around my kids.  I want them to always know they can do incredible things in life and that God expects us to use our abilities/gifts he gave us. They are learning right long with us.

Have a great night Nathan.

oh you are kind...thanks Nathan. Here is a version of the cover - the subtitle was changed to:

The inspiring story of one ordinary mom's quest to use her God-given abilities to push her body, mind, and spirit beyond the limit

Welcome to 48 Days, the community here is great. Don't be afraid to jump in to any discussions that interest you. 

There are groups about lots of different topics, and I wanted to let you know about a group for people in Wisconsin. I know schedules are pretty crazy, but I hope we can get together in person and encourage one another. It would be great to get know people in the area pursuing common goals. The group page is here http://www.48days.net/group/westernwisconsin

Myself and another member Have been meeting in Eau Claire most Friday mornings at 6:15AM at the Starbucks near Shopko. http://www.starbucks.com/store/8546 Bring like-minded individuals!

Have a great day,
Jake Woldstad

Hi Nathan,

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 interested in writing. If so, consider joining the Write It Forward. There are some great discussions going on that will likely be very profitable for you.

Plus, you might want to check out Speak It Forward as well. It's another group I'm involved with that has a lot of activity taking place.

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

Live it forward,
Kent Julian
