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?

And then...what is your goal/dream for your work life?
Financial and personal freedom. No debt whatsoever. Paid for home in country on nice property. Be able to mountain bike and workout at will without concern for having enough time or resources. Fully funded emergency fund and college savings for kids. Large emergency fund for daughters medical condition.
How about your personal life? Any specific goals or achievements or dreams you are pursuing (or want to pursue)?
Would be sweet to get back into racing mountain bikes and to one day do a bodybuilding/physique competition (i love working out on the trails and in the gym!)
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 am a strong leader, decision maker, and excel at taking initiative.
