How did you hear about 48Days.NET, and what do you hope to get out of being a part of this community?
from 48days.com. I originally learned about the 48 days book from the Christian jobs web-site. I have been feeling lead for a long time to learn how I can help my family earn $. If your going to take me away from my family, the most important thing to me, I have to be doing something I love and am passionate about.
What is your current work situation? Employee, self-employed, generating any income on your own?
I currently work very hard raising our 7 children and homeschooling 2 of them. God had shown how important this job is and I'm very dedicated, but I am finding the pay stinks! God has shown me moneys correct place in life, and I do not strive to be become rich. I would like to be wise with my money and earn enough to live confidently.
And then...what is your goal/dream for your work life?
Your 48 days book really awoke something in me. I would like to discover what else aside from wife/mother God has equipped me to do. There were so many times when I was reading the book when I would say "oh that's me" or "yes, I completely agree". I especially got excited when you started talking about self employment options.
How about your personal life? Any specific goals or achievements or dreams you are pursuing (or want to pursue)?
I want to raise children who strive to be excellent, Godly people, and know they were well loved. Learning what else I am gifted in is a huge new venture for me. I think God is going to show me things I never knew about myself. Though I believe I've had my priorities right, life has had too many devastating times instead of good times. I am commited to taking a new path of change. Be happy!
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 would like to learn how I can help someone else through the trials & hardships I survived. I want something good to come out of something bad. I am self -motivated, if I don't do it myself or deligate it, it won't get done. If I do it, I always want it to say wow, awesome! I want to learn skills that I've aquired in raising my family, that I probably don't realize I have.Instead of earning $ I learned how to cut costs equal to

Thanks for the compliment! It has been much easier this time around. I attribute that to doing something I really love and have interest in. Plus I have no pressure to make an income from it so I am able to take it one step at a time like you said. I am really loving it!

Just noticed you joined 48Days.net -- WELCOME! It's a great site with tons of great people.
If you happen to be a speaker or author (or want to become either), check out the following groups. They are two of the most popular groups on the site because of all the great conversation taking place.
One other thing…I want to offer you a gift. You can download my FR EE e-resource entitled Goal-Setting That Actually Works! by joining the REAL Success E-Zine community at www.liveitforward.com. It's a growing and dynamic community of people striving to live WAY BEYOND their average in the most important roles of their lives. I think you'll get a ton out of both the Goal-Setting product and the REAL Success E-Zine. And again, both are absolutely free.
You are very welcome Carolyne! This is a great place to be. I'm sure you'll find lots of knowledge to help you along the way. Looking forward to seeing you in the group and let me know if there's anything I can ever do to help you get to that next level in your life.
Hi Carolyne, Welcome to 48 Days! Dan is right, you will find lots of help and support in a truly caring environment. I am anxious to hear about your family, we big families need to stick together! I would love to talk to you and answer any questions you have and offer all the support I can. It is so interesting to reach this stage of our lives and ask what do I want to be when I grow up type of questions. As Moms, we already understand that our primary calling is to fill the roles of nurturer, first teacher, support , comforter, cheerleader.....but there is also the problem of income generation. In our case, I have spent a lot of effort stretching those dollars, but sometimes, it just was not enough. After trying lots of gimmicks, I just decided to start my own business and work from home.I ran that business for almost ten years.Now with lots of help from folks here as well as Free Agent Academy (Kevin, Dans' son, works in conjunction with his dad on that), I am transitioning into something new. I would love to hear your thoughts on what you are interested in doing, and offer any assistance I can. We can just share kid stories, that would be fun.I am looking forward to connecting with you. Have a blessed week. Talk to you soon. Grace
This is a great place to get direction on working in your passion.
You might like the group Clearing the Hurdle. I started it for folks who are determined to find the career or build the business of their dreams, but have to get over some personal financial hurdles first. You’ll probably enjoy the conversations we have going on there.
Carolyne - Welcome to 48Days.net. You’ll find this to be a warm, encouraging and innovative group. If you’re looking for additional ideas – just stick around. This group is full of great ideas and strategies to make them come to life.
I'm delighted that reading 48 Days "woke something up" in you. It sounds like you've had dreams that just needing a little prodding. Yes, raising 7 children is a big and very important job in itself. But involving your children may be part of the solution as well. You might want to connect with another member, Grace Becker; http://www.48days.net/profile/GraceBecker?xg_source=profiles_memberList She has 12 children and a couple of businesses.
Thanks for being part of the 48 Days family. We’re glad you joined us! Dan Miller – 48 Days
