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 Dave Ramsey's Podcast
I am hoping to learn how to expand my business and also start up a few more businesses I have running around inside my head. I would also love to get my story out
What is your current work situation? Employee, self-employed, generating any income on your own?
Recently hired on full time after contracting for 3 years for this company I had to basically slug my way out from the trenches
And then...what is your goal/dream for your work life?
I would like to build my starting company and eventually quite my current job and work on my company full time
I am working towards getting my professional engineering license
How about your personal life? Any specific goals or achievements or dreams you are pursuing (or want to pursue)?
My dream is to be financially independent and own my very own condo at Disney
I also want to tour renaissance fair circuit. I am currently on the cast at a local renaissance faire and I love it
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 can break down complex problems into smaller parts then rearrange them to fix the problem. I am also wildly creative when I get going on something
Also, I am very stubborn.
Do you have a website presence anywhere?

Hi Patrick,

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.

One thing I noticed on your profile is you have some great core competencies. You have a great gift.

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
