Are you a Veteran looking to start coaching?

I got certified as a coach a few years ago - well after I left the military.  Whether you "become a coach" or not it is a good skill to have.  I've used it more internally with the consulting I do, but in 2016 I started doing more formal coaching.  The typical coach makes less than $10,000 a year.  Those who scale their business make well into 7 figures.  The key is getting from a time for dollars model to a product or subscription model.  Like many people, I know the formula, but am still…See More

Hello Robert,

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
