Hey Matt,

You are so welcome. Enjoy the site--it's powerful!

As an FYI, one of the most powerful things about 48Days.NET is the many Groups. You can hit the ‘Groups’ tab above and search for anything you are interested in. I happen to lead a couple of groups here for folks interested in writing or speaking. Not sure if you have interest in those areas, but if so, I’d be honored to offer what I can and include you in our discussions. In fact, I'd love to have you jump into the discussion. The more voices, the more we all learn.

Here are the links to these two groups:
* Speak It Forward -- REAL Success and Profit for Speakers!
* Write It Forward -- REAL Success and Profit for Writers!

Wishing you REAL Success...

Live It Forward,
Kent Julian
www.liveitforward.com

PS One other thing...I offer a free e-resource entitled Goal-Setting That Actually Works! ($47 Value) to those who join the REAL Success E-Zine community (also free) at www.liveitforward.com. Feel free to check it out. I really think you'll get a ton out of both these resources.

Hi Matt,

Thanks for getting back with me.

We will look for you in the forum. One of our members just started a new discussion that you are invited to participate in.

Matt -- Welcome to 48Days.net. And thanks for already being a listener of my podcasts.

You’ll find this to be a warm, encouraging and innovative group here. 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.

Looks like fly fishing and beer are your passions. There's probably a hot idea you could develop from one or both of those.

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

Hey Matt
Welcome to 48days.net. As you can see we are a friendly group (lots of folks welcoming you to the site). I hope you catch the feeling of how excited we are about what this site has to offer. It is a great place to get and give support and encouragement in finding your place in the world of work as play.

Let me know if you have any questions about the group, I have been here a while. If you are interested in starting a business (not get rich quick but really doing it right) I encourage you to join the Baby Steps to Business Group

Peace
