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.

Vitamix is Why You Should Pay for Quality

Years ago my wife bought a Vitamix blender at Costco for what I thought was an outrageous amount of money. As a matter of fact, she paid for it with her own blow money just so she could prove it was worth it.

Wow did she!

That blender has been the single biggest improvement in healthy eating for our family of 7 ever (5 kids!). We have so much fun with our veggie and fruit smoothies.

Disclaimer- Even though Tim Ferriss and Chris Young at Chef Steps explained over dinner one night how nature wants to kill us, including our spinach. A story for another time.

The other day I noticed a chipped blade. I worked up my angst and called Vitamix ready to fight over making them replace it. They sure messed up my prepped argument.

I barely got on the phone and explained my issue before she said, "Oh, that's still under warranty. What's your address? We'll ship you out a new one immediately."

Here it is, all nice and shiny...

And that is why you should save up and pay for quality the first time instead of paying over and over for a long list of broken whatevers.

It's the same way with my business. I do keynotes, breakout training sessions, and coaching. Right now I'm coaching a small construction company that has been 'buying' (so to speak) low quality employees for years. It's greatly affected morale, profit, and their checking account. I just discovered thousands in unpaid and late bills that slipped under the radar.

Buy quality the first time and it will pay off in the end.

I just noticed after I posted this pic that there's a glob of smoothie on my shirt.

Any company that does that for me inspires loyalty.

Yes! We love our vitamix. 3 of us use it daily. I also called when we had a problem and they immediately replaced the broken part.
