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.
A counseling professor told a woman in one of Larry’s lab groups, “Your tears don’t move me.” His words stunned the group, but the woman stopped crying. “Those were tears of frustration,” he explained. “They weren’t tears of brokenness.”

About three years ago I sat bleary-eyed at my computer, overwhelmed with all the tech tactics that I was “supposed to be doing” to help my current clients... and the ones that were supposed to get more clients for my own business as well.
Every day felt like drinking from a firehose as I clamored for the latest article or conference call or paid course and quickly turning to implementation, which seemed difficult to manage, even with my team in place.

Did you watch the Academy Awards a few nights ago? Everyone is talking about how unfortunate it was to have announced the wrong winner for the Best Picture. It was unfortunate, but certainly not devastating, because everyone goofs sometime.
Of course, no one wants to wear egg on their face in public but I think it is a sign of transparency and just being human when we make a mistake, own up to it, and ask forgiveness if it has offended anyone. In fact, I tend to trust people who are…Continue

The common thread between gum disease and chronic health conditions is inflammation — the body’s natural response to an infection or injury. The build-up of inflammatory substances in the blood seems to worsen heart disease, diabetes, and other chronic conditions. Eliminating gum infection may reduce that harmful…Continue

Back when I worked in dermatology, we would send biopsies to the lab every day. We would write on the order to: “Rule out_ (suspected diagnosis)_”. Usually we had a pretty good idea of what we were dealing with but…Continue

When it comes time to hire someone, a lot of employers will take an interviewee out to lunch or dinner. If you didn’t know, this isn’t just to have a delicious burger that someone else is paying for. It’s to see your table manners, to see how you treat the waiter or waitress, and to gauge your social and conversational skills.
Note to interviewees: If at all possible, never order anything you have to eat with your hands nor anything with ‘extra sauce’.

We’re told that one of the first steps in thinking about any new business is to write a business plan. Out of this you’ll get to see how viable (or not) the business you want to build is. Books and books are written on how to write a great business plan. I’ve even got some on my shelf.
“It doesn’t happen that way!” is what his friend kept telling him. Whether it was dressing for a special occasion or helping a neighbor with a boundary issue or finding answers to some financial questions, none of these just happen on their own or are magically resolved externally. This is the difference between being active and being latent, and in a way, this is the difference between being ‘awake’ or being ‘asleep’.
What is civilization, where does it come from, and who is…Continue

Have you tried small teams in the past?
Do you know which one of the…Continue

In my original ideal world of freelancing I’d hang out my shingle and stellar clients would pour in. I’d have work to do all the time with no dry periods. All the clients would be willing to pay premium rates, beginning the day I started building sites.
Yeah it sounds silly now, but it’s…Continue

My favorite games of “hide and seek” took place at night with my older cousins at a friend’s log cabin on the marsh. The smell of salt air, twinkling lightening bugs, and the moon shining over the water created a magical setting for our childhood fun. The goal was to hide so well the seeker would give up looking for you.

When Hebrews says God “rewards those who earnestly seek him” (11:6) we may picture a game of “hide and seek.” But God is not hiding from…Continue
