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.

Building a Better Network

Whether we know it or not we all network in some form or another each and every day.  Even my seventy something year old mother shares her status on Facebook or asked others to click a link to give her more coins to play bingo on her iPad. Sure it’s not a direct form of networking, but it is a way of being noticed.

When an opportunity comes up that’s really where you want to be, top of mind. Now I would not recommend spamming your network with click me game requests, they get annoying…

Is Algebra Unnecessary?

I have long been a proponent of creating a functional education for young students as opposed to cramming unnecessary skills down their throats. The vast majority of adults in their jobs do not need or use higher skills in any of the educational subjects.

And, guess what?

If they needed to, they can learn them as needed. It's what people do when the need arises.

Sure, teach those classes to the kids that need or want them for future careers or even out of curiosity, but…

Four "A's" To Choosing An Education Provider

When considering a specific career or profession—whether it’s your first one or your next one—the issue of education and training is a necessary consideration. Not so much for entrepreneurs and artists, but for millions of other people who are more bent for the "traditional" workforce. And there are four important components to factor into that decision: Applicability, Accreditation, Affordability and Aid. It doesn’t really matter in which order these are explored, as long as they are part…

Spend or Earn $30,000? You Can Choose!

Would you rather spend $30,000 or earn that much or more? Unless you work for the federal government, you'd choose the latter. Most entrepreneurs I know are very resourceful because they don't make dangerous assumptions about money they haven't yet earned. So, when I pose this question to potential coaching clients, the answer is usually preceded with a sarcastic chuckle.

You have something to…

Three Reasons Your Book Is Not Enough

You can't shoot a deer from the lodge. - Anonymous

I have the opportunity to talk to a lot of people who have written or want to write books. It is interesting that 80% of the people surveyed say they want to write a book, yet 80% of those people never start. Of those who actually do write books, they often experience very underwhelming results.…

Developing Student Leaders

"Ten percent are great leaders; 80% are followers; 10% are bad leaders." So says Tim Lautzenheiser, affectionately called Dr. Tim by the music community. Dr. Tim founded Attitude Concepts for Today, an organization dedicated to developing student leadership in music ensembles.

He is the top name in music education, delivering keynotes and workshops across the country. I was privileged to interview him for my podcast, …

Passionate Endeavor Or Just Getting By?

What is more risky? To pursue something you love that you have a talent for, or take the safe job that you feel no connection to and hope doesn’t drive you to despair? Putting on a false face everyday, pretending that you care, going through the motions, hoping you meet the productivity benchmarks. Certainly this is the case in many workplaces. We have workplaces full of people working at only 25 to 30 percent of their true capacity. I believe that the only way to do your best, most…

What Is Your Charmed Life?

The Charmed Life.  What kind of life would you live if money was of "no object," time wasn't a concern, and you had no educational barrier?  What does YOUR charmed life look like to you?  This is the question we ALL ought to answer for ourselves, the question that seems very critical to answer, if we are ever to figure out what we truly want to pour our time into.  I still think of it as, "What do I want to be when I grow up?" :-)  This is not been an easy task.  For me, there are days when…

Exciting News!

Ok, so I know I'm not very active here. Quite honestly I am very busy living, and growing my business, but I felt like this was too exciting to not share.

The last 3 1/2 years has seen me spending increasing amounts of time teaching music to kindergarten and first grade students at Lakeview Elementary in Lakeside, CA. It started out so humbly and innocently as an offer to help a pre-K class with music. Our twins were enrolled there for this semester long class they called "Early…
