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.

Even winners lose sometimes

Tonight the nation watched as the U.S. Hockey Team lost in overtime to Canada. I mentioned to my wife prior to the game that regardless of the outcome......everyone playing would go home with a medal. After seeing the difference on the faces of the silver medalists and gold medalists......it was obvious that the silver medal was simply a consolation gift. Team USA wanted the…

365 Daily Insights -- February 28

To nurture your talents and strengths is to nurture the Divinity within you.

I received an email from a gentleman, he made the comment (paraphrasing) that to focus on one’s strengths, could keep you locked inside a “comfort zone”.

While there is no question, that in the real world, the endzone is usually located clear on the other side of the field from the comfort zone, here’s a different perspective: What he referred to as a “comfort

zone”, might actually be what…

365 Daily Insights -- February 27

To step into the new day, without first preparing your mind and spirit, is like beginning a footrace with your shoes untied. You’ll trip yourself up every time.

As the rattle of the alarm clock pierces the silence of the morning, on auto-pilot, most people jump into their routine, and begin the rush of the day. Rush to take a shower. Rush to grab a cup of coffee. Rush

to get the kids to school. Rush to the office.

With that kind of rushing, is it a surprise, people…

How to fight so your marriage is affair-free

Dear Hubby and I had an argument this week. It was on Monday and it was a fairly major disagreement primarily brought about because God's plan for marriage is for a husband and wife to commit to one another for a lifetime--not to have second spouses! Being a second spouse is trying at times, and impossibly difficult at others, because no matter how much the first spouse leaves, moves on, and claims to…

The Best Business Slogan

I just spent a week onboard a cruise ship with some of the brightest up and coming business people I’ve ever met. I lead events throughout the country (and now the world I suppose) on how to become successful in business and many of these people are going on to do some amazing things.

Normally I boil my message into two main points, but I’m just going to hit on one for now and that’s execution. Seth Godin calls it shipping in his newest book… Continue

There's a Bathroom on the Right!

Communication. One simple word that can generate fantastic results, or horrible results. In this age of incredible technology and instantaneous communication, a simple MIScommunication can cause all kinds of issues. For example, you visit your doctor for a minor medical issue, and a miscommunication to the pharmacist causes a different drug to be provided to you than the one the doctor actually prescribed. You take the drug, and one of two things may happen. The drug may have absolutely no…

365 Daily Insights -- February 26

The task or function of a job is hollow; the reason for which it’s done, and the people whom are served, stirs sleeping spirits.

I’ve had the distinct privilege of working with many people throughout the years; helping them tap into their vocational calling.

In searching for one’s life’s work, a common mistake people make, is that they try to search out a particular occupation or a company,

In doing so, often what they find, is that they wind up stuck in a J-O-B,…

Make Your Calling and Election Sure.

Your calling is an external commission from God. Your orders to complete in the kingdom as it is more about your giving away than what you can get. We are co-labourers with God. It is important not to substitute the "doing" part of the call of God, with the "being". God is concerned with what we are becoming. We are to seek Him first, His kingdom, and the Blessings will be added to our lives. Matt.6:33. The call is not a one time thing but will be progressively revealed to us. Sometimes, even… Continue

Everything will be alright...

Or...."What I wish I would have believed 10 years ago."

I was born in 1964, the last year of the baby boomers -that makes me 46 this year. And my kiddos will be 16, 14, and 13. (Pray for me.)

Besides the fact that I no longer find heartburn commercials funny and I now watch “Masterpiece Theater,” I’m still the same ole T. I childishly chuckle right along with Caleb when he farts…and have to stifle my laugh when I see someone trip. (God forbid they get hurt!) I love coffee, chocolate,… Continue

Product / Service Identification

While driving across town between appointments this morning, I noticed a food delivery truck heading toward one of my favorite restaurants. Normally I wouldn't have noticed, but something about the company identification on the door caught my attention. After doing a double take, I realized the company name, "Butts Foods." This caused me to think about how and why we choose particular names for our businesses. Somehow, Butts Foods doesn't have a particularly appealing sound to me. Maybe it's…

Eureka! I'm directing towards the negative :(

This has been in my head for a long time but I never worked it out the way I just did today. I've known for quite some time what I don't like and what not to do because I was always taught the negative side of things. You see, everything out of my fathers' mouth seemed to be don't do this / that and ya did good but... So, yes I got it that things shouldn't be done this way but if not this way then what way and what did I actually do good? Of course he rarely explained his reasons so I never… Continue

Can we run out of creativity?

I just had a baby, so I'm up a couple times a night feeding her, and in order to stay awake long enough to crawl back into bed (instead of slumped over on the couch where I'll have a stiff neck and kinked back the next day) I started watching television while I fed her.

I think I've seen every infomercial on the face of the planet, but one early Sunday morning, I stumbled on a news commentary show (something I usually avoid) that asked the question, "Can America run out of creativity… Continue

Put the Power Where Your People Are

Most people shop the market with the intention of displaying all their badges of success on the table. They say with confidence, “I’ve done this, and I’ve done that, or I can do this, or I can do that, and have this many rewards”.

Well that’s great and all, and knowing you have this much experience really says a lot about what your mind can produce. But keep in mind that in the midst of this economic change, work models are changing, and the old saying that says experience…

The Purpose Driven Hamster

My oldest son has been keeping hamsters in my office. He had 3 females, and the rule my son was told is that they don’t like to have more than 2 in the cage, and they can live up to 2 years.

Well, come to think of it we don’t really know how old they were when my son bought them, so they could have been about to kick the bucket anyway. Well, we would here them fight and scream (or squeak), until one day sadly we found one that had evidently passed on to her maker. We’re still…

Keep Your Money Out of the Swamp

Did you ever get that feeling of, “Where did my money go?” This used to happen to me years ago when I was an idiot without a budget. The key is not only having a budget but to be intentional on how and where you place your

money for that month. Let me explain.

I always ran into trouble every time I dumped all of my money for the expenses into one checking account. Subconsciously, I wouldn’t keep tabs on…
