I tried to connect to your linkedIn page but it doesn't let me without going premium.  I must be doing something wrong, I'm newer to LinkedIn though.

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 have been the recipient of Dan's fine newsletter and podcast, and am a great fan. I hope to participate in community groups and network with other people on a quest to better their lives.
What is your current work situation? Employee, self-employed, generating any income on your own?
Employed full time doing career and placement services.
And then...what is your goal/dream for your work life?
Ideally, I would like to have a greater flexibility in time schedule and ability to greatly increase my income and challange myself.

I am currently in the Coaching Mastery Program and coach individuals who want to find their best work and life!
How about your personal life? Any specific goals or achievements or dreams you are pursuing (or want to pursue)?
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 encourage people to pursue their dreams!

I am wired to help others, specifically to encourage others and help them get beyond the place where they find themselves stuck.

I help job seekers present themselves on paper in a way that is attractive and helpful to potential employers. I do an effective, targeted resume. I also help people get by the sophisticated federal application process and get interviews with the Federal Government.

Typically people tell me things they might not be comfortable telling someone else. I don't judge, just listen and try to see if there is an area where I can help.

When I worked for a corporation in a prior job, one of our sales directors told me that customers naturally trusted me; I knew that was because I was sincere and made sure we delivered what was promised!
Do you have a website presence anywhere?
Feel free to share your Twitter name, Facebook page, and any other social media way to connect with you!
