"Hi, Sam. I am also in private practice as a mental health counselor, and I have found that working in the field requires a good deal of business savvy that many clinicians lack. I have an E-course I will be launching soon called Open…"
I feel you. I am continuing to struggle financially, but we continue in our struggle set ourselves free of the chains on monotony and the dreaded 9-5 J.O.B. When I am having a very slow day at the farmer's market I wonder, why…"
"Really appreciate your candid experiences, Sam! Keep at it.
I can relate to your feelings. I am frustrated and discouraged beyond belief, underwater in debt, but I am still applying for jobs and looking for ways to sell my art and my knowledge. I am…"
"Thanks everyone. I'm excited and tired beyond belief. I sleep about six hours during the weekend. But it's worth it. But making much right now, but my sales doubled from one week to the next. I hope, that this continues to thrive and grow.…"
"It sounds like you have really worked very hard to overcome the obstacles you have had to face. Congratulations on not only taking the first steps to move ahead with your dream, but in putting the pieces together to learn from each step. I totally…"
"Hi Ofir, this is what I learned.
Fear: face it. Try not to conquer it because it's almost impossible. But accept it, and work with it. For many years I was afraid to try this venture because I was afraid of many things; people wouldn't…"
"Just to update you guys. I am now, at this moment selling at a farmers market. First day too. It's slow, but it's worth being out here. A lot of lessons in the last two days about how to run a business. It took a while to get all the…"

How did you hear about 48Days.NET, and what do you hope to get out of being a part of this community?
What is your current work situation? Employee, self-employed, generating any income on your own?
Employee, and starting to be self employed
And then...what is your goal/dream for your work life?
To be self employed, own my own business. Have been baking and selling to a few people, slowly growing that small venture. I want to get into coaching, life or executive coaching.
How about your personal life? Any specific goals or achievements or dreams you are pursuing (or want to pursue)?
Have more time for my daughters and wife. Have the time to volunteer at my daughter's class and be able to take vacation at least one time per year. I want my daughters to see my as the most influential man in their life, in a positive way.
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!)?
Talking. Speaking at workshops/trainings. Good listener. Good sense of humor with my clients (individual and family therapy). Story teller.
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:
Sourdough and sweet breads. I'm learning to bake, and have sold quite a few breads. I have also done trainings for foster parents, and have taught parenting classes. I'm currently trying to come up with trainings and seminars for adults with ADHD.
