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?
I've been following Dan and 48 Days for about 10 years, and first heard about 48 Days from Dave Ramsey.

I'm a 48 Days coach and workshop facilitator and love to encourage others along on the journey toward more freedom, purpose, and fulfillment in our lives and work.
What is your current work situation? Employee, self-employed, generating any income on your own?
I've been a pastor for 15 years. Am developing a life and career coaching business because I am passionate about helping others live their dreams and create more freedom, purpose, and fulfillment in their life and work.
And then...what is your goal/dream for your work life?
Growing my coaching business to replace my current income.
How about your personal life? Any specific goals or achievements or dreams you are pursuing (or want to pursue)?
I am a kingdom entrepreneur at heart and I want to create self-funded social enterprises that make a difference in causes I care about. Also want to equip my five children, whom we homeschool, to be entrepreneurs.
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!)?
Brainstorming, ideation, strategic thinking and implementation, identifying and clarifying life purpose, and creating a life plan or personal development plan.
Do you have a website presence anywhere?
Are you interested in finding a better job, starting a business, growing your current business, writing a book, blogging, podcasting, coaching, speaking, sales & marketing, or something else?
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'm a 48 Days coach and 48 Days seminar facilitator.

Posted on January 18, 2013 at 10:16pm 3 Comments

Last week, my teenage boys and I discovered that how you adapt to change can mean the difference between success and failure in your life and business.

We were enjoying a breakfast at Tim Horton’s during our weekly Man to Man Time (where I mentor them in life skills and entrepreneurship) and…

A "Do What You Love" Tip from a Lottery Millionaire

Posted on November 29, 2012 at 10:00pm 6 Comments

On Thursday's edition of The O'Reilly Factor, host Bill O'Reilly did a segment on two people who won big in the lottery. He asked them what was the worse thing that happened to them through the experience, and also how it had changed their lives.

The topic is timely because of the recent $588 million Powerball jackpot that will apparently be split by two winners.

One person featured on the show, Steven Wright, won over $200 million, but after taxes received only $60…

Today I had the privilege of meeting fellow 48Days.net member Randell Mark Olson for coffee.  He reached out to me when he saw my posts here at 48Days.net and realized we lived in the same city.  It was awesome to meet him, learn about his coaching business, and share our goals and dreams for the future.

We also talked about other 48Days.net members with whom we had mutually interacted with in the past, and who…
