Profile Information

How did you hear about 48Days.NET, and what do you hope to get out of being a part of this community?
Learned about this through the Financial Peace University when Dave mentioned the book.
What is your current work situation? Employee, self-employed, generating any income on your own?
Self-Employed
And then...what is your goal/dream for your work life?
I want to build my business in a way to support my family, hire my children that are interested and lead the community at large to easier methods of working with remote developers.
How about your personal life? Any specific goals or achievements or dreams you are pursuing (or want to pursue)?
We want to build a round house (dome, yurt, etc.) and teach others that they can enjoy their family right at home. We aren't against outside activity but rather we are excited about the fulfillment of family in particular and spreading the ways we have found that help achieve that concept. Learning to make bread from wheat berries, gardening, building the skills of children's vocations at home with external learning sources and many other fulfilling concepts.
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 am by nature a logical thinker who seeks sustainable solutions. My special skills include web application development and shortly will be posting my newly acquired design skills by updating the sites we have. My experience also includes teaching others these skills through classes, user groups, conferences and book writing.
Do you have a website presence anywhere?

More than one website?

It’s great to have you here at 48Days.net!

This is a great place to get direction on working in your passion. Awesome ideas about round living!

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.

I’m excited that you’re a part of 48Days.net!

All my best,

John,

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.

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

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.

Looking forward to connecting with you!

Live it forward,
Kent Julian

John - Welcome to 48Days.net. You're joining lots of other Dave Ramsey listeners here as well. Dave and I have been great friends for over 20 years now.

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 checked out your roundliving site. I’m very intrigued with innovative ideas like that. My son Kevin build a straw house in Woodland Park, CO last year. We’ve been out there several times and enjoy how that big project came together – and how it provides for their family of nine.

Thanks for being part of the 48 Days family. We’re glad you joined us! -- Dan Miller – 48 Days

Hey John, I'm going to take a stab at what your aiming at with your question. You can correct me if I'm wrong.

You do mention that you're making good progress on your goals, but evidently there is a missing piece - which maybe the mastering of your niche, or knowing that you could be doing much better. You say you have time to invest, which is great! I like to view anything such as our time we use in life as investment and not something we throw away. This investment is going to cause some change in our future whether positive or negative. So to me that sounds like or means you want to evolve to another "or higher" level with your business "or life", and would like to know how you should be best spending your time getting to that next level.

There are some other unanswered questions for me here as well, such as how are you currently using your time? Reaching out to others is definitely a good use of time, and you're doing that by joining this Social Networking group and asking questions. This is good. But what else are you doing with your time, and what does your typical day look like? Are you feeling a sense of being off balance, and fear that you may be spending too much time in one area versus another, or giving too much attention to this or that, when you should be doing this or that?

Let me know your thoughts on that when you get a chance....

Hi John,

Thanks for getting back to me.

I'm happy to help out.

One of the first things you can do is stop by the career compass forum and join in the discussions.

You can participate in the ongoing chats, or start one of your own.

Are you asking me for suggestions on your career search, on how to use this website, or the best way to zoom in on the niche?

Hi John,

Welcome to the community. You'll find this to be a pretty good place to make new friends and exchange ideas.
There are plenty of ways to get involved depending on what your interests are.

One group that is worth looking into is 180 Career Coaching.
Good stuff going on in there.

Another group you'll want to stop by is the career compass. That's my group.
Good discussions and quite a bit of activity as many of the members share their thoughts and insights. We look forward to your participation.
