"Tom, Thanks for the suggestion! I didn't realize 37 Signals had a CRM program. I'm familiar with them through their founder's may Inc magazine articles. Ironic that I just got the email that they have spun off…"
"Thanks, Paul. I had actually bough an inexpensive app to cleanly export my contacts to a CSV. Turns out I ended up not needing it as Highrise did a great job of importing my contacts without the CSV step. ~ PJ"
"Salesforce can get very expensive. We've used Highrise, by 37 Signals ($49/mos). It's easy to use and learn. While it doenst have all the bells and whistles as Salesforce, it's a huge step up from Apple's…"

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 the 48Days community from Dan's online radio show and I am looking to see what opportunities are available to both learn as well as share.
What is your current work situation? Employee, self-employed, generating any income on your own?
Currently a commercial airline pilot transitioning to a more fulfilling career that is more compatible with my values and goals.
And then...what is your goal/dream for your work life?
I am working towards becoming a financial planner to better use my talents to fill a dire need for people to understand their current financial position and then help them figure out the best way to achieve their own financial goals for their future.
How about your personal life? Any specific goals or achievements or dreams you are pursuing (or want to pursue)?
I am currently learning how to play guitar and I am beginning to put together the storyline for the first of a series of action/adventure novels dealing with contemporary issues.
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 high "C" on the DISC profile, which I would agree with. Very strong planner, enjoy creating systems, and do tend to be a bit retentive. I also am strong with small team leadership and getting a job done. Above all, integrity.
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 will be a fully qualified financial planner within a year and would be more than happy to help you achieve a better understanding of your financial situation and offer options on how best to meet your future goals!

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:
