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.

Leap into the Extraordinary Adventure that is Life

The helicopter starts.  As the drunk pilot starts to fully power up the tiny aircraft and head out to sea to meet a boat, a choice has to be made.  You need to get to that boat.  You have to find your guy.  The situation is less than ideal but if you do not take the leap into the helicopter right now, you may very well miss your chance to truly live.  What do you do?…

Health and Weight Loss: Are You Living Out the Labels Placed on You?

“Researchers weighed girls at age 10 and again at age 19, and found that the odds of being obese as a young woman increased if someone had labeled the participant “too fat” by the time she was 10.

What a Night!

On June 24th Dorsey McHugh and I had our first big book signing event at Two Old Hippies, a "hip" place in Downtown Nashville that is a whole lot of fun! And a very appropriate place for our "debut" due to the fact that Dorsey lived and breathed hippie back in the '60's and early '70s.  I knew about them....but I was too busy being "Suzy Homemaker" for my single parent family…

Health and Nutrition: Do You Know the Difference between Yogurt and Twinkies?

“A Twinkie is not worth it, not just because of the caloric content–150 calories is adequate for a snack–but because it lacks fiber, which will provide satiety over a period of time and because it is loaded with sugar, which will cause you to crash and become tired 15 minutes after you eat a Twinkie…Well, as it…

My Morning Started with Fear, so I Fed It!

Yes, that is correct, I did have fear today! Last evening turned into a late night at a baseball game and the morning started early. My daughter was also tired, didn't get enough sleep and decided to be very difficult this morning. I was losing steam fast.

Why is Writing a Book so Difficult?

Well…if you’re anything like me, when you write a book you wanna make it perfect. So you stare at a white screen until your mind goes completely blank.

You eventually write for a little while but within a week you’ve fallen off the wagon. Either you lose interest, or you run up against “writers block” & all progress is halted.
