How did you hear about 48Days.NET, and what do you hope to get out of being a part of this community?
I recently purchased 48 Days to the Work You Love as part of the Dave Ramsey's recommended reading list. I then began listening to your Podcasts which mentioned the 48Days.Net community. I am searching for a community of liked minded individuals seeking hope and positive direction to a successful life. When I mention Successful, I don't only mean financially. I am seeking a life filled with happiness and fulfillment. I'd like to pass on to my children a road map of success that they can also utilize.
What is your current work situation? Employee, self-employed, generating any income on your own?
I am a State Correctional Officer
And then...what is your goal/dream for your work life?
I am looking for a fulfilling career. One that will provide me the flexibility to enjoy life with family.
How about your personal life? Any specific goals or achievements or dreams you are pursuing (or want to pursue)?
I want to be present in my kids life and be part of those memories that last a life time. I consider traveling the ultimate education. Whether it's a road trip to the White House, or a flight to see Chichen Itza, I want to be able to have my children witness all this world has to offer. My ultimate goal is to be an Entrepreneur. I want to not only have the flexibility that comes with entrepreneurship, but also lay down the framework of success that my children can benefit from for years to come.
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!)?
Looking back from childhood to present, I'd have to say I have enjoyed competition and taking the lead in pursuing success. As a captain in High School sports, to my time spent as United States Marine, Teamwork, Mission Accomplishment, and a Sense of Duty has been a big part of my life. I've given my adult life to public service, and as rewarding as it has been, unfortunately it has not "paid" off. My strengths tend to lean more toward organization, motivation, a go-get-it attitude. I know how it sounds.... I could motivate a room to "go-get-it" and yet have fallen short in "getting-it" myself. I struggle to really point out all I have to offer the civilian world.
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?
My interests ultimately is to be better off than I am now. I've been in this "rut" for so long I have come to a road block. Starting a business has been a goal of mine since I transitioned out of the Marine Corps. Call it fear of failure, lack of knowledge, fear of failure, fear of failure, fear of failure! I have be an Entrepreneur for years within my own mind. The thoughts of different products and services float around up there, but there is a lack of follow through. It's time to get up or shut up! Something has to change or I'll look back with regret and sorrow, knowing I missed an opportunity to provide my loved ones and myself a successful life.
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:
