Kick in the Pants or Gentle Confirmation

I have been lurking in the shadows of the 48 Days community for about a year now. Quietly watching other members challenge themselves, offer advice, and just improve their lives. During this time, I was inspired to do more on my own and now I am at a point that I either need a kick in the pants to get up and make something of myself or a gentle confirmation that it is time to move on. About a year ago, I took counsel from the group and created my own company with me as a sole proprietor.

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 heard about 48days.net through Dan's 48 Days podcast. It sounds like a unique forum to collaborate with other professionals and seek guidance from those who have already struck out on their own. I hope to use this site to present ideas to others and gather critical feedback on which direction to take my business.
What is your current work situation? Employee, self-employed, generating any income on your own?
I am co-owner of my own company. We generate approximately $250,000 annually. There are three of us that do the actual work. We are funded by the State of Tennessee to provide behavior services to adults with developmental disabilities. I have extensive knowledge and experience in working with nearly all forms of mental illness.
And then...what is your goal/dream for your work life?
I want to work with families or individual people to set up behavior strategies for dealing with disorders, mental health issues or personal challenges. I believe that behavior change can accomplish more than a pill can and small steps toward a goal can lead to more rapid success.
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 provide this type of behavior service without the constrictions of state or insurance regulations. I want to be able to be an example for my children that you don't have to plan for a life of working for a boss or that you can create your own career path. One that may not actually be taught in a classroom or on a college campus.
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!)?
My core competencies include, but are not limited to, integrity, compassion, the ability to see clearly defined directions, and the desire to help people change their lives. I believe I am wired differently than most. I tend to come up with some of the more "off the wall" ideas when I see a challenge. Not everyone can appreciate a different train of thought, but generally that is where a lot of my solutions come from.
Do you have a website presence anywhere?
http://www.behavioralharmony.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:
I have a wide range of experience in working with nearly every kind of mental health disorder. There is a behavioral approach to dealing with any challenge a person may face. My goal is to help as many people as I can to take baby steps toward conquering those challenges.

Closing Up Shop

Posted on January 19, 2012 at 9:32pm 6 Comments

When do you know it is time to quit a business idea, lick your wounds, and let your family cushion your fall? One of my business partners and I discussed two options for our ailing business. #1, accept the loss of about $20,000 and close the business or #2, go get a line of credit and hope that in 6-8 months the revenue will be enough to not only cover expenses but also have a tiny bit of profit.

Hmmm, is it that hard of a decision to make?!? I told him, let’s call it quits. This is a…

To Coin a Phrase (or so I thought...)

Posted on December 17, 2011 at 12:14pm 0 Comments

Here I thought I was going to shatter the world with a unique concept to help explain a strange phenomenon. I woke up this morning with the thought of why we don’t achieve success. Why are we afraid of accomplishing goals and bettering ourselves? The term “negative success” popped into my mind. I was excited and thought that I had just created a new way of looking at human behavior.

 

Ah, the power of Google…I just Googled “negative success” and it turns out a couple of Ph.D.’s…

Spurts of Motivation

Posted on December 1, 2011 at 1:38pm 2 Comments

It can be challenging to stay motivated throughout the day. With my work, I travel around a good portion of Tennessee nearly every day. I find that I am most motivated and purposeful in the mornings and have my greatest desires to work on my new business. Nearly every single day the same thing happens. Right around 1:00 pm, the well runs dry and those great ideas are not as grandiose anymore.

 

I know a lot of people have this challenge. And I am sure this has been discussed…

Welcome Dan,

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.

Also, 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, if you happen to be a speaker or author (or want to become either), check out these two groups. They are two of the most popular groups on the site because of all the great conversation taking place:

* Speak It Forward -- REAL Success and Profit for Speakers!
* Write It Forward -- REAL Success and Profit for Writers!

Again, enjoy 48Days.Net. It's a great place to be!

Live it forward,
Kent Julian
