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.

The Ministry of Presence: Being There

Sometimes you can tell somebody what they need to know. That feels good. Sometimes you can fix things for them. That often feels even better. Sometimes you can even help them grow strong enough to fix it themselves. That feels best of all.

But sometimes there’s no fixing it. Nothing you do, or they do, will make things any better. In those times the best you can…

Are You Looking for a Job or a Title?

Back when I was working my old job in behavioral health, monthly we would have meetings about distributing a newsletter to the community. Essentially, it would be a way by which our resident Psychiatrists and Social Workers could tout their clout... after all, a full third of any given publication was comprised…

Got Guts?

Recently I read an article about celebrities who went from rags to riches. Now, don’t get me wrong. I’m a girl who admires anyone who is able to work hard to change their situation, but I really wish we could focus on some of the other careers where it really did take guts to get to the top.

WHO Is Your Home?

Last night, I finally got around to watching the movie "Chocolat."  (I rank this right up there with Twilight on being a female seductive obsession and being completely lost on the male counterpart.  I loved it, and PapaGray fought to stay awake.  But I digress).  There was a scene that was so tiny, but resonated with me.  In it, Roux (Johnny Depp) is checking in on Vianne (Juliette Binoche) after his…

The Truth About Money and Art

Overcoming the ‘Lack of Money’ Excuse

Here’s a classic excuse that writers (and creative people of all kinds) use all the time. Do any of these sound familiar?

  • “I’d do a lot more with my book if I had more money to invest in it.”
  • “It takes money to make…

Living Paycheck to Paycheck- How to Manage Your Money Better

When I did the latest reader poll here on Celebrating Financial Freedom a few months ago, the biggest problem most of you said you were facing is that you are living paycheck to paycheck.  It’s a problem that I see almost daily when readers contact me for…

The social media time thief

Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google +, even emails have all become a much greater part of our lives in recent times. The value of the increased ease of communication with others is huge. We are now able to quickly and easily keep in touch with those in different countries, different time zones or even simply different floors in the office.

The benefit of being able to send an email in the morning and have an answer to your question before lunch is enormous. It's also so much easier… Continue

Healthy Mood and Nutrition: How Your Gut Affects Your Brain

I approach health by addressing nutrition first and foremost because it is the one thing we all do and we do it at least three times every day! So it just makes sense that this would be the place to begin. When I say nutrition – I am talking about nourishing ourselves properly spirit, soul and body. But most…

Do Your Colleagues Use the F-word When They Think of You?

Sometimes you might even use it when you refer to yourself, too…

Frustrated … Frustrating

Frustration raises your blood pressure, interferes with the fun of being your own boss and saps your energy.

You do have the power to control some of that frustration – especially if it is connected with your leadership skills.

I want to share with you what I think are the three most frustrated/frustrating leadership personas. See if you see yourself – or, better yet, ask…

There’s Too Much to Do!

There’s not enough time in the day!

“Ha!” I say. “Hah!”

Every person on the earth has the same number of seconds each day – it all depends on how you use them toward your own personal and professional success.

Donald Trump, Bill Gates, Tony Robbins, Barbara Cochran – they share every minute with you – and me and every other business owner. So why isn’t everyone equally as successful?

Could it be how we approach the good ol’ to-do list?…

Here we go...

I have been a 'member' for years, but haven't done anything. I haven't kept up, and I do feel out of place.

I am not a small business owner, I am a very small cog in a very large machine - I think there are 40k employees across the globe for my company. I would love to do something different, but I have never had the guts/skills/confidence/desperation/whatever to do anything else.

I am a software developer, have been for quite a long time. I have worked primarily for 2…

Dis-Incentivizing Entrepreneurship Cannot Improve The Economy.

The full potential of the market process can only be achieved by true and active entrepreneurship.

Corporate decision-makers – managers - act as true entrepreneurs only to the extent that the entrepreneurial opportunities detected translate into personal benefit. Without this type of arrangement the full potential of the market process is wasted, untapped because the entrepreneurial potential is limited.

How could it not be limited? It is the…
