"This is near and dear to my heart at the moment since I just completed my first grown up book (I have previously written four children's books). Because I had a co-author and our book was full of art work....a piece of art in…"
"Thinking all this crazy stuff. It'll never work. No one will read it. I'm the wrong guy to write this. My premise is terrible. My story line is horrendous. I can't write. Why don't I take a nice safe J-O-B?
In other words, my top…"

"Yes! I understand there are VA's who do just that. I loved writing some parts of my book and others, not so much. People like me need people like you. Neat talent and I think marketable. What's great about your skill is that the book does…"
"A question for all of you book writers...I see that "time" seems to be the biggest hurdle for most book writers...would having someone do research for you make things any easier. I love doing research, but I don't enjoy having to do…"
"HMM Very cool idea. You know I am technologically challenged (Think they would give me a better parking space at work for that?) but it would force me to learn something new and make writing easier. Of course it would cut…"
"For me, it's trying to implement things too fast.
I almost jumped off the cliff of no return with a new book. I stopped myself because I can't focus enough on it.
Why not talk your way thru a book? That's what I do with my…"
For me this one is TIME with no close seconds. I have a ton of ideas. I think I am a decent writer (check it out here if you'd like) and other people are great editors. But finding the time to put it all…"
Over the past couple years I’ve watched a few episodes of ABC’s “Shark Tank” TV show. I’ve found it intriguing, but haven’t got into the show so much that I felt like I had to see every episode.A few weeks ago when my wife and I were at home, a rerun of the show came on. She said, “Shark Tank is on,” and I said, “OK.”I was sure glad that we watched this one all the way to the end.About the Tree T PeeThe final entrepreneur in season 5, episode 7, is Johnny Georges.

How did you hear about 48Days.NET, and what do you hope to get out of being a part of this community?
I first saw 48days.net in early 2012. Justin Lukasavige was the first person I heard mention Dan's books, which led me to both 48 Days websites. I attended Coaching with Excellence (Sept 2012). I can connect with others, collaborate on ideas, and contribute to advancing projects I believe in and that match my strengths.
What is your current work situation? Employee, self-employed, generating any income on your own?
And then...what is your goal/dream for your work life?
I want to continue writing and publishing books, generate residual income, and help businesses craft great stories.
How about your personal life? Any specific goals or achievements or dreams you are pursuing (or want to pursue)?
Family: To have some acreage of our own for a home. We like small towns and rural lifestyle!
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'm a CS on the DISC. I've always had excellent skills with technology. I'm organized, love to read and learn, plan my work, and get things done. I like working in small groups and one-on-one. Routines are great.
Jeepers creepers, yes, we are ready to go for the book launch - I am overwhelmed with the outpouring of kindness and generosity. So excited to have our new home page up, our products page ready to go, and 100+ of the most incredible book launch team members on my side. Also gearing up for some workshops next month, podcasts, and monthly seminars (next one is 12/11 at 6am central if you are awake and want to join in - subject is virtual assistants).
My household of 7 is buzzing with excitement these days and everyone is pitching in to make it a family success. VERY exciting.
Come join in the discussion. We have an exciting one going on right now. We are encouraging and holding each other accountable in journaling our "successes" and "safety steps". Just like life - no lurkers, only participants.
They'll be an option for you to join the group if you haven't already. You'll probably find that option at the top middle or right hand side of the page once you get there.
