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.

Was just thinking about being "un" frustrated :0)  How are things going over here??

Will do, Guy, I will repost that (I just requested to join the group) with a bit of elaboration if you don't mind. Something to do with your entire theme of "un", because I think it's an important basic distinction (and worthy of an early post on your forum) whether you are internalizing the term "Frustrated Entrepeneur" as reality (true frustration that people here can help with) or an excuse (using frustration as a rationale for not doing something).

Hence I really like your profile pic next to the title, a bit of subliminal play on words. Something like, "What would you be like or do if you were a completely "un-Frustrated Entrepeneur?", although that is not something to directly aspire to. :^)

Thanks Guy for the connection. I am a 'born-again' entrepreneur, I did my own business at 28 which lasted 3 years and I served well, but was not so wise in the ways of business (became a big fan afterwards of Michael Gerber). Now at 41 after trying to work for someone else's dreams, I want to pursue my own again.


My challenge currently is 'the jump', going from salary-slave to full-blooded consultant with no reserve funding nor a financial safety net. Plus I have just a few small remaining mental blocks to work through. But I know a breakthrough is coming soon, and I am relishing it, but also feel I need to make it happen.

Good Morning Guy!

I appreciate your invite, and gratefully accept. I am searching for solutions for a product that I have. My product is in prototype form, but I have yet to nail down a solid manufacturer. I did have a domestic manufacturer quote at one time, but they have since pulled back their offer.


As an entrepreneur, one of the most frustrating parts of bringing a product to market is knowing where to find good advice for your future direction. I have gone through the cycle of using my personal money until it is exhausted, shelving the idea until I have more discretionary money, then repeating the cycle. Each time, I get a little further, but I never seem to crest "the peak," so that I am gaining momentum rather than losing.


This roller coaster effect may be a function of the people I surround myself with, the circumstances, or just plain ME. I can visualize my product in its packaging on the shelf in stores, but I find few partners who have the enthusiasm that I have to see this product come to fruition. I have shown this product to the target market, and they get excited.


My biggest hurdle is that the product would require licensing to achieve its greatest potential. That is not to say there are no other ways around the hurdle, but finding a suitable secondary market is a lot for one person to handle. I am the guy who wears all the hats, and between lack of financial support, and a partner that holds me accountable, it has been difficult to make the necessary forward progress to feel like I am moving in the right direction.


I have very respectable prototypes that I have developed largely by myself. I have trademarks and a patent to protect my property rights. Last count, there were 75+ Million potential customers in the primary market, and who knows how many in the secondary market.


Quite simply, I need help. I need a "mastermind" group.

Hey Guy, thanks for the request! I am working hard to be able to work from home full-time! There's so much for me to learn! How about you, Guy, where are you at in the process?

Hi Guy! Thanks for the request.

Good morning Guy, hope you and your family had a very nice holiday weekend.   I am sure it was hot in Oklahoma much like it was here in Missouri. Thanks for adding me to your list of friends. I am the entrepreneur that you all want to be but keep in mind, it ain't all that easy on this side some days either. I am in construction and the economy has reeked havoc on our industry. I am trying to get out so I don't loose everything I have worked for. Sorry, am not trying to be a downer, but this is a reality check.

Hey Guy, Thanks for adding me.  I can't wait to be working for myself :)
At 5:14pm on July 2, 2011, Michelle Read said…
Well, you know, why not do it all at once!
At 5:00pm on July 2, 2011, Michelle Read said…

Thanks for adding me, Guy :)

Loved the "un" and what it might mean to different people!  All of my "uns" are happening at the same time . . .  including my husband who is quitting his job on Tuesday to go to work for himself.  Fun to be had here in our family!

Hi Guy:

I clicked on the link to your site and I couldn't get in.  There is a message saying that your link is problematic.  You may want to check it out!

Thank you for requesting.  It's great to have the support on here.

Yes, the profile page at 48days.net (here). I realize now that it's an "update". Guess that's not so important. :)

Hi Guy, nice to meet you. (I tried to click the ning.it link at the top of this page, but got "Stop - there might be a problem with the requested link". Just so you know.)
