Profile Information

How did you hear about 48Days.NET, and what do you hope to get out of being a part of this community?
A Career? and a chance to help others to do the same.
What is your current work situation? Employee, self-employed, generating any income on your own?
Between opportunities
And then...what is your goal/dream for your work life?
Out of Debt and working to my own goals, not someone elses. The idea that my pay should be proportionate to my effort, and that If I need money I need to go out and make it. "Go out, kill something and drag it home".
How about your personal life? Any specific goals or achievements or dreams you are pursuing (or want to pursue)?
Out of Debt!!!!!!!!!!!
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!)?
After running through the book "48 Days" I have come to the conclusion that I am very good at studying a situation or problem and coming up with a creative solution. I like to focus on a problem and then fix it.
Do you have a website presence anywhere?
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:
The site is under construction but I'm going to start advertising very soon.

Gatekeeping Gargoyles

Has anyone come up with good ways to get past the Gatekeeping Gargoyles that are increasingly common at many places.  I have just started my search, and I have been stalled right out of the gate because I don't know who to send an introduction letter to.  I surfed around and noticed that some places will trash can any correspondence addressed to "Gentlemen" or "To whom it may concern".  Come to think of it, those would be about as effective as sending mail to my house addressed to "resident". …See More
