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.
Here's a brand new article from INC magazine:
Thanks for your input! I have been on and off with 48days, not realizing how vital collaboration and networking really is. At this point I NEED TO LEARN HOW TO LEARN! There is so much information. God has opened much opportunity before me that I finally have some direction and focus on what I need to learn.
I don't know much about crowdfunding but I am assuming you need the money for improvements, upgrades and/or maintenance. If thats the case is there a way to boot strap the venture? Pick one improvement or upgrade, complete it and from the additional revenue do the next. It doesn't get everything done at once but it shows you want to improve. I would base the list on who is your clientele, mostly the hikers and bikers of the G.A.P. (my assumption) if so what can you offer today to that clientele?
I make my suggestions on the side of pessimism, what if you don't raise the money via crowdfunding, not saying you won't, but taking the pessimistic point of view for the sake of argument. Would there be issues with the crowdfunding organization that could cost you more than you take in? I am a fan of bootstrapping as the improvements are incremental.
On the personal side your post really piqued my interest as I am planning to hike part of the G.A.P. in September (Cumberland to Myersdale) and to hike the entire trail next spring.
Thanks for your reply! I appreciate your candid response. I was just sending feelers out in every direction. I am a little more focused now. I hope to learn how to interact with the various groups and learn from this concentration of philanthropic intellectuals!
By the way, did you ever hike the trail?
