How did you hear about 48Days.NET, and what do you hope to get out of being a part of this community?
I learned about 48 days.net, along with so many other things, at the April, 2011 Write to the Bank conference. I hope to make contact with other people who are doing things with their writing that I hope to do, and to contribute to and benefit from the positive energy I experienced this past week.
What is your current work situation? Employee, self-employed, generating any income on your own?
My college degree is in mechanical engineering, and I worked in that field for a few years before we started our family. Now, I am a stay home mom who loves being with her kids. I have a small button making business that I do for fun with my kids, and I also have been dabbling in photography recently. I take individual and group photos of our marching band and sell the packages to students' parents and family.
And then...what is your goal/dream for your work life?
I want to have a profitable business that allows me to not only spend time with my family, but involves them as well. Selling our teen oriented devotionals and Sunday school lessons is something I plan to develop. Also, I want to publish and sell my novel, The Inheritance, which entertains as well as educates the reader about the importance of good estate planning.
How about your personal life? Any specific goals or achievements or dreams you are pursuing (or want to pursue)?
I want to be able to better provide for my family, and I want to strive for the ability to give and help others in our community.
What would you say are your strongest talents? How are you 'wired' and what can you offer to the world (it's OK if you don't know yet, but knowing is key to pursuing your dreams!)?
I like to plan things out and be organized. If I have the vision, then I can make something happen. I am a perfectionist and very detail oriented, but I am practicing on letting some of that go in favor of accomplishing more. I also enjoy artwork and creating things with my hands.
If you have a product or service to promote (now or in the near future) this is your shot to state it! Say all you'd like:
I have a collection of 22 and counting Sunday school lessons that we have written and used in our youth class at church over the last several years. I am in the process of taking the lessons from the notebooks we wrote them in and putting them onto my computer in an organized, usable format. We call our series "Life Lessons for Teens and Young Adults." The lessons are geared toward helping teens deal with everyday problems and issues they face at school, at home, or in their outside activities. We deal with issues such as finding and persuing God's will for their futures, how to deal with difficult people, the importance of avoiding negative speech, and standing firm in your faith. It is ideal for a teacher or group leader who needs fresh perspectives and ideas for leading teens. My other venture is a novel I wrote about the Browning family's struggle to overcome the efforts of two women who scheme to hijack the estate of Daniel Browning's sister, Kathleen Baxter. This novel fulfills the aspects of EIEIO. It entertains, informs, educates, inspires, and even outrages. I can't wait for you to read it!

I wanted to send a quick welcome to the Write it Forward, Real Success and Profit for Writers group. We're glad you're here!
The discussion forum in the Write it Forward group is packed with ideas, and is great place to get feedback on your work, ideas and questions. Jump into the conversations and let us know how we can help you reach your writing goals.
You might want to check out www.teenlifeministries.com. The site offers Bible lessons for youth ministers and parent leaders. It's a pretty ingenious and profitable site - and *could* generate some ideas on different ways to use your own Sunday school lessons.

I try to take time each week to welcome new members to 48Days.Net. So, let me say "welcome" to you! I know you will find this to be a great site filled with people who are experiencing true success in both life and work.
I'd also like to say that I am glad that we met at the Write to the Banks seminar. I enjoyed it a lot, and hopefully you did too.
I'd like to point out that one of the best places to connect with other liked-minded people here is in the GROUPS section. There are groups for just about every interest you can think of, and if you can't find a group that interests you, you can start one. Groups are my favorite part of 48Days.Net!
Finally, it sounds like you are interested in writing. If so, consider joining the Write It Forward. There are some great discussions going on that will likely be very profitable for you.
Plus, you might want to check out Speak It Forward as well. It's another group I'm involved with that has a lot of activity taking place.
Again, enjoy 48Days.Net. It's a great place to be!
Welcome Anna! It was great to share in the Write to the Bank seminar with you and all the others this past week. I have found it an encouraging and informative group of people to be involved with and I'm sure you will as well.
