Question About Staying Focused

Wow, what a summer. I haven't spent much time here at 48days, but I haven't been slacking. First, we thought we were going to be moving to Maine. In fact, my wife actually moved up there to get things ready, but the job she was going up there to do, was not as advertised (for Govt. related non disclosure reasons, I can't say more), so she was only there for 6 weeks.I went to Bolivia on a Mission trip with our Church group and as soon as I got back from South America, I hopped a plane to Maine…See More

Hi Sam,

Just stopping by to welcome you to the amazing 48days community! 

Little background on me; I’m a long time member here, who truly believes in the 48 days vision and this community. I can truly testify that the power behind this community is a huge reason for my success and business.

So whenever I can, I like to reach out to see who I can help. If you have any questions, or you start feeling overwhelmed right off the bat, because there is just so much great content, discussions, and just lots of great stuff happening, feel free to reach out and let me know! I would love to help guide you here.

Also, many people who come to this site are stuck in career ruts, need help gaining clarity, finding passion, purpose, and real meaning in their lives, careers, and businesses. If you’re ready to take this part of your life to the next level, then join me in one of the newest 48 Days groups, 180 Degrees to Your Calling.

Outside of that, if you have questions, or get stuck with anything, you can always ask me, any of the 48 Days Advisors, and you can always just post a discussion on the home page forum.

Many blessings on your journey, and by all means… Enjoy the adventure!

~Rob Clinton
