Hello Kathryn,

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 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 a communicator and interested in speaking. If so, consider joining the Speak It Forward . There are some great discussions going on that will likely be very profitable for you.

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

Live it forward,
Kent Julian

Hi Kathryn,

 

So nice to hear from you. What have been some of your favorite finds on the site? You are invited to join us at our group.

 

The library idea may be a good start, to give your practice and exposure. However, what would you say are 5-10 other things you can do? To make any business work, you have to have several strategies working for you, because you never know which one will come through.

 

If you'd like, we can schedule some time and talk through some of the ways you can harness your best gifts and enduring qualities, toward building the business you want; designing the business around you, instead of the other way around. Is it usually easiest for you to chat in the morning, or is afternoon/evening better in your schedule?

Hi Kathryn -- Welcome to the 48 Days community. We're glad you joined.

This is the idea and social networking site for people that want to create their own opportunity.

I'm curious, have you put together a solid business plan so that your husband will able to coach FT in 3-5 yrs?

Depending on what your interests are, there is a wide selection of discussion groups to get involved with.
