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.

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.

Hoppin John

My husband, Robin, is famous for his Hoppin’ John Soup (the recipe is below),  and he was asked to make a huge pot of it for a local fundraiser.

He worked for hours chopping and stirring and simmering. When I entered the  kitchen last night he complained that his lower back was killing him.

I said, “Robin, are you holding in your stomach?”

CHRISTmas - Guest Post by My Son


By Mark Ferguson (age 14)

Where is Christ’s credit in his own holiday?

For it is really about his life, death, and birthday!

Instead, it was stolen by Santa Claus, and snowmen, and elves,

Yetis, and trees, and presents on shelves.

But, what is Christmas really…

Wish List

When we were children, we would make our Christmas wish list months in advance and continue to revise it and add to it until Christmas. Then, once Christmas was over, we would start on our Birthday list. So why don't we pour the same enthusiasm into our personal goals and our future? Make a list and keep revising. Read more.

Book Review- Makers: The New Industrial Revolution by Chris Anderson

As I began reading Chris Anderson's newest book- Makers: The New Industrial Revolution, I knew Chris had written another masterpiece. It wasn't based on the fact he was a best-selling author of The Long Tail or the former Editor of Wired Magazine. No, the title and opening story was all I needed to know this is a ground-breaking book. The title relates to the new Industrial Revolution and the…

Toyota has been cursed with fallout from its problematic floor pads that have been blamed for many unintended acceleration accidents. Some of those mishaps led to deaths. Now the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is fed up. Toyota has received the highest fine allowable for not reporting the safety defect in a timely way.

Analyzing the Behavior of Book Buyers Pt 3 - Reviews

In Part 1 of this series, I examined how book buyers find your page.  In Part 2, I wrote about the first thing they look at on your page.

At this point, the potential customer has found your book and, after reading the description, is intrigued.  You’re home free, right?  Wrong.

Next comes the dreaded reading of the reviews.  Some browsers will read a bunch of comments; other only a few.  You can be sure, though, that they’ll all look at the top rated one for the “Most Helpful…
