I thought it might be fun to give this blogging thing a whirl, so I started one a few weeks ago. Partly because I'll be a dad in August and thought it would be a good idea to document some of the…Continue

I know similar questions have been posed but as the marketplace is fluid, I thought I would refresh the question. Does anyone know of a good person or company to go to in order to get quality prints…Continue

"Hi Audrey, It sounds like you have a very useful product. Have you considered hitting up restoration companies (Servpro, etc)? I know they deal with mold remediation and prevention when cleaning up after floods and such."

Profile Information

How did you hear about 48Days.NET, and what do you hope to get out of being a part of this community?
I bought the 48 days and no more mondays books a few years ago and find myself in another job that I need help getting out of because it's not enjoyable to me, as it turns out. I revisited the books and have since found the site. I hope to get different perspectives and opinions and ultimately courage, motivation and encouragement to figure out what I love and do it with excellence.
What is your current work situation? Employee, self-employed, generating any income on your own?
Employee at yet another "get by" job tired of playing the "well at least it's better than the last job I had" game.
And then...what is your goal/dream for your work life?
Enjoyment, fulfillment, freedom of time to spend with my beautiful new bride, freedom of choice not to have to base almost every single decision on money (read as wealth).
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 think I might be one of those people that needs to have their hand in a few different areas in order to be completely fulfilled and never bored. I love sports (esp football) and have a teaching license (but am not employed as a teacher, yet) but the only reason I got that was so I could coach high school football. I enjoy drawing and have been told my work might sell.
Do you have a website presence anywhere?
http://www.facebook.com/TayloredProductions
More than one website?
http://theeverydad.wordpress.com
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:
You can find some of my art on the Blake Taylor facebook fan page

Blake, That is Holuba Hall at Penn State University.  Spent many a night there during my undergrad studies.  That picture was taken when visiting as an alum.

Hi Blake,

 

Looking forward to working with you. Let's start at the beginning and set up a time to chat so you can catch me up to speed and I can refresh your memory as to the coaching process, how it unfolds, and what to expect.

 

Is it generally easiest to talk in the morning, or is afternoon/evening better for you?

Hi Blake,

 

Thank you for sharing. I appreciate your trust and confidence. In three year's time, let's make sure you're not in the same place, (only more frustrated and exhausted). Let's put together a plan so you can step into 2012 in a new direction.

 

What do you think?

Hi Blake,

 

Yes... I remember the farm part about our chat.

 

I'm glad you're a part of this community. I'm curious, what has been the most revealing thing you've learned about yourself in the last three years?

Hear our podcast with Dan.

Hi Blake! Thanks for accepting my friend request. I noticed in the forums you mentioned a specific interest in calling. If you'd like, check out our 'Pursuing Your Calling' group :)
Have you sold any of your art recently? Is that something that's more of a hobby or do you want to turn that into a business?
In Him,
Brent
