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 the 48Days programs through a financial advisor. I'm joining the 48Days.net community in order to learn whatever I can about alternative income opportunities, including how to select one that is suitable to my situation and temperament, and then how to pursue it successfully. I'm also hoping that membership will help me stay motivated in this endeavor.
What is your current work situation? Employee, self-employed, generating any income on your own?
I am a full-time employee.
And then...what is your goal/dream for your work life?
I'm looking for an activity that is enjoyable and fulfilling, as well as financially rewarding. Ideally, it would turn into something I could pursue full-time upon retiring from my current job.
How about your personal life? Any specific goals or achievements or dreams you are pursuing (or want to pursue)?
Get my two children well educated, prepared for adult life, and happily on their own. Help my wife find something she can enjoy doing and use to contribute to our income.
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 an excellent writer in almost any field. I have worked as a technical writer, for example, but I have also published a novel and won literary prizes for my fiction. In addition, I am an accomplished (professionally trained) actor and a compelling public speaker.
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:
A novel entitled "Someone to Kill" is available as a Kindle download on Amazon.com. It's a rarity: a page-turner/thriller with plenty of intellectual meat for those who want something more thoughtful than the usual thriller. But it's also just a darned good read for those who prefer fast-paced action. And it's cheap if you have a Kindle or if you would like to download Amazon's free Kindle reader on your computer. Check it out!

Kurt.......We so enjoyed seeing you at the event this past week.  It was wonderful from top to bottom!  We loved it and hope we impacted a few lives.  My email is Joanne@48Days.com.  Keep in mind......I don't have a kindle or even a laptop (ok...I have one I don't use!) because I hate being glued to my computer. So I read mostly by physical product..........so if you send it via email, I will probably print it out.  I am of the old school in that I love the feel of a good book.........and I KNOW yours to be EXCELLENT!  Blessings to you and to Alica (whom I so enjoyed!!)

Kurt,
Yes I received the book in great condition. Haven't started reading it yet but am looking for to getting started.

Kurt, To say you are an excellent writer is a gross understatement! I started your book "Someone to Kill" this weekend and could hardly put it down. I am maybe 1/3 of the way through it and am loving it.  You are indeed an excellent writer.  And I am an avid reader of good crime novels. This book rivals any well-known authors I have read. I mean that sincerely! I want to know what you have done to market this book. Have you had any help from the publisher? Do they OWN the rights to the book or do they consider it out of print at this point?  Are you selling many? I am just blown away with your ability!  I want to know more.............So glad you were here to WTB this past week.  Great to have your input and to meet you and your wife.  Hope you got some good ideas you are ready to implement!  Blessings, Joanne

Kurt,

 

It was so nice meeting you at the Write to the Bank event and I hope Pei and I will have the opportunity to visit with you again soon. Thank you for the book.

 

You are invited to join us on finding your voice and get involved in the discussion.
