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.

Some of us are ready, some of us are firing, and some of us have taken aim. Where are you? Have you gotten ready for change? Are you aiming for your next accomplishment? Are you launching or firing your next big thing? Or are you in the group of people who are still trying to decide what to do?

Fast forward five years later. Will you be where you want to be?
Even more important, when you look back on today, will you like what you see? Did you fritter today away with insignificant busyness or did you live with passion?
Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you react to it.” – Charles R. Swindoll
