"Hey guys! Thanks to Kent's encouragement I took my 10-hour long Teen Career Program and made it a 2-hour program. I marketed both to the same school. First year, 10-hour program brought me a whopping $80 (that's right-…"
"I know that I would not have wasted as much time trying to promote events that I didn't charge much for. Last year, I spent literally 4 hours promoting at a school for a 10-hour workshop that earned me a whopping $80 in the end.…"

Sounds like you're doing some great things, man.
I would love any feedback you might have on connecting with schools and school counselors about getting in front of their students to present your materials.
"I am speaking 3 times next week. 2 are paid speaking gigs on Monday and Thursday with the same event.
Tuesday, I am speaking for free (but not for free) at the same High School I am doing my 2-hour "5 Steps to YOUR College Success"…"
"Ivan, I have had the chance to learn from both these guys in one on one coaching as well as Kent's Bootcamp. Kent and Justin are really doing what they love full time! You will love the Bootcamp!
"This happened with me, Lynne. I created a seller account ($39/per month) and sold one on there. I then took it off and went back to just selling it on my personal account. You may have to pay $40 to get it on there initially."
"After communicating and serving this principal for the past year, I just got an email from him saying that he wants to do the 5Fprep two-hour program for their school. Constant connection really pays off.
Matter of fact, he is also…"
"Great question Erin and I hope the conference produces an abundance of fruit for you.
So, what do I do?
Equip high school upperclassmen for their futures in college by helping them focus in on key developmental areas.
How did you hear about 48Days.NET, and what do you hope to get out of being a part of this community?
I heard about 48days.net from Dan Miller's Podcast and I hope to get good ideas on expanding a program that has already generated interest in its field. I conceive that it is an untapped market in my area and I am looking forward to helping this key age group.
What is your current work situation? Employee, self-employed, generating any income on your own?
I am both an employee and a self-employed. I work as a high school teacher by day and an self-starting businessman by night.
And then...what is your goal/dream for your work life?
I want to do something I would do for free because I believe in how it helps people that much. I then want to think about how to make enough money spreading that passion to others that it becomes my main source of income.
How about your personal life? Any specific goals or achievements or dreams you are pursuing (or want to pursue)?
I want to get in better shape (lose about 15 lbs.) and continue to improve my relationship with my wife, family, and friends.
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 an influential and inspiring salesman. I know how to package an idea and win people over to the cause. My core competencies are relational skills, goal-setting, and inspirational encouragement.
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:
I am the person standing in the gap between high school and college for those kids that say, "I don't know what I want to major in!" I want to help them with that and other areas such as financial stewardship, friendship building, goal-setting, and simple personality analysis so that these seniors can walk onto the campus as confident prepared freshmen!

Thanks for letting me know you're hearing about me. I'm TRYING to get my name out there. Listening to TONS of Coachradio.tv and heading to Kent's boot camp here in October. My business is A Better Way of Business. I'm using my blog as the launching pad. Please check it out if you have a minute, I'd love to hear your thoughts.
Also, please let me know if there's anything I can do for you, Trent.
I'm in the process of facilitating workshops. I joined the group because where better to find information about getting started and lessons learned than the group that is doing it. As my style,experience, and strategy develops, I'll post more.
Thank you for your reply. I did get a lot back by deactivating/activating plugins one at a time. My visual editor is still gone. A friend of mine told me that there was a button to activate it in one of the General Settings (Writing), but I don't see it.
Anyway, I might still be able to continue my posting schedule...just need to make sure the post preview looks alright before publishing the post.
Thank you for the encouraging words. There's a few things I am passionate about including money management, coaching people to better health and now pursuing rewarding careers! Thanks for asking:) I can't wait to learn from you!
It was great to meet you as well! What a great event to learn about others passions and then be able to stay connected to see what they do with that. I'm excited for you and your journey...I know I would be a lot further ahead if I had more guidance as a teen!
