Your place for community & resources to find or create work you love

We are so glad you're here and ready to take the next step! We created 48days.net as a place for community. For people to encourage each other and help each other in finding or creating work that is meaningful.

But frankly, we've outgrown it, so we're moving to provide you new resources.

48Days.net will be closing as it is today on November 30, 2017. Until then current members can click the button below to access groups and resources.

If you're new to 48days.net, connect here for a close up look at our thriving 48 Days Eagles Community and to get weekly free resources and motivation as you find and create work you love.

Profile Information

How did you hear about 48Days.NET, and what do you hope to get out of being a part of this community?
My husband attended your training last week in Nashville. I have been listening to you ever since he got back since I am interested in starting my own debt counseling business. Thank you for all that you do to help others!
What is your current work situation? Employee, self-employed, generating any income on your own?
I am employed through our local school system. I have been a teacher for almost (9) years. Some of that was spent working part-time when my second son was born.
And then...what is your goal/dream for your work life?
I have realized this past year that God has been speaking to me about doing more. My husband and I have taught Financial Peace University for the last four years at our church and I LOVE talking about budgets and saving money. I realized that this is my passion. I am always sad when we have to stop FPU, but there's no way we could do it all year while working two full-time jobs. We don't charge anything for the class, but that doesn't even matter to me. I just enjoy seeing people who came in hopeless leave with a smile on their face ready to conquer their debt. We have impacted a lot of people and every year our number of attendees grows more and more. I have asked Greg about even teaching in the fall, but know that this can't be done or we would be completely exhausted and never see our children. Last year I sat down with two ladies and their homes and went through their budget. It was awesome! My goal is to have my business "The Fearless Heart" up and running this year so that I can start helping people save money and pay off debt.
How about your personal life? Any specific goals or achievements or dreams you are pursuing (or want to pursue)?
I want to be happier. I come home from my work just exhausted and mentally drained. I may feel this same way as a counselor, but I am already a counselor. I feel like I do more counseling at my school than teaching. There are some days when I feel like I can't teach at all. There's just so much red tape that it just doesn't feel worth it anymore. I have been in this kind of "funk" when I come home from work. There are times when I feel like I don't want to discipline or even speak to my children because I have seen 150+ in one day. My kids don't deserve this kind of treatment. I have also started on blood pressure medication and I know it's from the stress of my job. I just want to be happy! I want to feel like I am making a difference and I would like a more flexible schedule. I want to go eat lunch with my kid during the day if I want to.
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 love to motivate! I love teaching! I love helping people find the hope in a hopeless situation. I have always been this way. I used to assign one of my classmates homework back in Kindergarten. I have always had the mind of a teacher. Now I'm ready to teach what I would like to teach and do it the way I want to. I am ready to see lives changed!
Do you have a website presence anywhere?
Are you interested in finding a better job, starting a business, growing your current business, writing a book, blogging, podcasting, coaching, speaking, sales & marketing, or something else?
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 providing the service of being a financial coach. I am in the business of changing lives for the better. I want people to be happy again and not let their finances stand in their way. I want to teach people how important it is to use cash the way that God intended. I want them to have a heart that is fearless!

Hi Whitney, welcome aboard! I checked out your website - looks good! I also love this comment that you made - it sounds exactly like me! "I love to motivate! I love teaching! I love helping people find the hope in a hopeless situation".

Dan is awesome! He's a godly man with so much excellant advice to offer. I bought his 48 Days tapes and have shared them with many others. I also love listening to his podcasts.

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.

Welcome Whitney,

I try to take time each week to welcome new members to 48Days.Net. So, let me say "welcome" to you! I know you will find this to be a great site filled with people who are experiencing true success in both life and work.

One thing I noticed on your profile is you have a great idea for a business. I hope everything goes well with starting it off, and if you ever need help, just ask.

Also, I'd like to point out that one of the best places to connect with other liked-minded people here is in the GROUPS section. There are groups for just about every interest you can think of, and if you can't find a group that interests you, you can start one. Groups are my favorite part of 48Days.Net!

Finally, if you happen to be a speaker or author (or want to become either), check out these two groups. They are two of the most popular groups on the site because of all the great conversation taking place:

* Speak It Forward -- REAL Success and Profit for Speakers!
* Write It Forward -- REAL Success and Profit for Writers!

Again, enjoy 48Days.Net. It's a great place to be!

Live it forward,
Kent Julian
