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.

I Will Give You a Free Book in Exchange For Your Review (Limit 25)

I am giving a free copy of my book, Money Management for Cross-Cultural Workers, and the accompanying audio interviews and spreadsheet template, to the first 25 of the 48Days.net members who are willing to give me a book critique before August 6.

Yes, that means you are invited!

I first released the book as a PDF on December 2 last year, and then put it into print with CreateSpace in January 2012. It has been well received so far, and was even used as a college textbook for the Spring 2012 semester.

This fall I want to have this book available on more electronic formats (iPad, Kindle, Nook). Before I do so, I want to make some revisions to it. I have some excellent feedback to use as I prepare the next edition. I'd like to have some input from authors and professionals like you here at 48Days.net.

About the Book:

Money Management for Cross-Cultural Workers is a guidebook for anyone who lives overseas, plans to go overseas, or serves as a forwarding agent. This book is geared toward those who are considered self-employed for taxes. Go to the book's web site to learn more.

Your Responsibilities:

Do you promise to submit a critical review to me by August 6?

If you get the free download, I trust that you will submit a private review just to me. Answer questions such as:

  • Is the presentation clear?
  • Do you think the book fulfills its intended purpose?
  • Is the "daily" nature of the guidebook helpful?
  • Are all the tax and accounting concepts explained well?
  • Are there any improvements to the content that you think I need to make?

I also ask that you will help me promote it when it is time to release the second edition! Using your blog and social media, please write a public review of the book (during the week I will tell you in a future email).

Benefits (Thank You Gifts):

In return for your work, I'll give you:

  • Five audio mp3 files of interviews with experts (such as a CPA, tax professional, forwarding agent, and experienced missionaries); as well as a spreadsheet template to track ledgers in multiple currencies (based on the book -- read more about these here)
  • Access to the PDF of the new edition when it is released this fall (and any subsequent updates, for FREE)
  • A subscription to my email newsletter that relates to the topics in the book (record-keeping, taxes, multiple currencies, developing habits, etc.). I use this email list to announce special offers that I have as well. (I have an idea for a project that when I launch it, I need some beta testers for! Anyone can sign up for this list, and I'll ensure you are on it.)

That means you get $30 of products for free!

How to Apply (Where to Download):

UPDATE: I closed this offer on August 6, 2012. If you would like to receive further information about this book, please sign up for the email list here.

This offer is now closed. Be watching for the launch of the next edition this fall! It's going to be really good!

What a great book concept!

That's neat, thanks a lot Kelly!

As a missionary for past quarter century it is good to see this book! I've been on both sides of the fence, self-employed ministry and as an employee and missionary agency exec, from a quick skim I see good help to both sides. Will continue to read and get you a full report soon, but the first impression is very good and it is something I will be happy to share with my contacts and I'll have some marketing thoughts for you too!
