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.

Outsource your own job?

Posted on January 18, 2013 at 4:32am 0 Comments

A friend posted a link to this article on Facebook:  Man outsources his own job to China, watches cat videos.

You'll have to read it to get the full picture, but it makes me wonder if there is something to learn from it.  Either way, I hope you get a good laugh out of it.

Please share your thoughts...

Conservation of Energy

Posted on January 3, 2013 at 5:15am 3 Comments

Life is full of paradoxes. I find that I am constantly trying to conserve energy. You never know when you're going to need it, right? I tell myself that I can't do whatever current thing there is to do because then I might be to tired to do something else later. When it comes time to do that something else, I tell myself I had better not because I'll be too tired to do the next thing.…


Practicing your Art

Posted on December 6, 2012 at 5:26am 4 Comments

When we are kids, we're all artists.  As we grow up, something happens that changes that.  Many (most) of us lose our concept of art.  Is art the finger painting on the refrigerator?  Is art the Lego structure on the living room floor?  Is art the bouquet of flowers you picked from the garden? Is art last night's dinner?  Is art the thing you enjoy doing and others enjoy seeing?  Yes!

We're surrounded by art every day and yet we don't notice it and we surely don't practice it…


Are you better off now than you were 4 years ago?

This is not a political post.  This is a take control of your own life post.  I'm tired of hearing people complain about how they are going to be affected by who is in office or how they dodged a bullet by who's not in office.  I can't think of any single event brought on by government at any level that changed my life significantly.

I'm not saying government doesn't have power.  They do, but only as much as we give them.  Remember, the people that produced the Holocaust were…


Be Selfish at 5AM

Posted on October 17, 2012 at 4:47am 12 Comments

I published this post on my blog (http://www.backyardlifeblog.com) and thought it would be appropriate to repost here.  What are your thoughts?

Being selfish at 5am is an important concept to those hustling on their dream.  Selfishness always sounds negative, but hear me out on this one.

What does it mean to be selfish at 5am?

Get up early every day to put in focused time to get things done.  Most people have more energy at…

Hi Raun,  what is the best step by step way to get started and grow a business buying and selling on line as you do?  Thank you much.  Have a fantastic day.

Is there a step by step guide on how to get started selling on Ebay/Amazon.  Or even a book to guide us on getting this started.  I am willing to learn and I am anxious to get started.  If you have any sources please let me know.

Thank you. Tom
