Profile Information

How did you hear about 48Days.NET, and what do you hope to get out of being a part of this community?
Followed a link on LinkedIn, I forget whose though... lol!
I hope to get support and advice for all of my entrepreneurial whims.
What is your current work situation? Employee, self-employed, generating any income on your own?
I am currently working part-time delivering pizzas while going back to school for an Associates Degree. I already have a Bachelors which I obtained in 1990.
I was laid off in 2004. My job was kind of specialized, and even though I suppose I had some transferable skills, I really wanted to remain in the same field. However, there weren't any other companies with that kind of opportunity in my area. So I decided to go back to school and try to reinvent myself.
I have dreamed of owning my own business for decades.
And then...what is your goal/dream for your work life?
I would like several streams of income/profit centers, including businesses that I started on my own.
How about your personal life? Any specific goals or achievements or dreams you are pursuing (or want to pursue)?
Aside from starting a few businesses, I would love to travel to Ireland one day. I would also like to write a book and get something published, whether its that book or something else.
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'm still working on this...

Integrate target aspects of the free websites out there

Hello Everyone,  I'm hoping this is the best group to post this request.  I'm trying to put together a fully functioning website that tells everyone what I have to offer AND offer the ability for visitors/potential clients to submit their information by filling in boxes, indicating via checkbox/radio button what their situation is, adding any additional comments, then hitting submit.  I would then like that information either emailed to me or stored in a database somewhere.  Sounds simple,…See More

Does anyone have any experience writing for eHow(.com)?

About an hour ago, I was Googling how to get experience as a Database Administrator (to satiate my wife's demand that I find a REAL J-O-B upon graduation if not before) and I ended up reading an article about it on eHow.comThe article I read wasn't all that helpful, but I started clicking around on various related article links and did a couple of other non-related searches and eventually came across the theme of making money writing articles for eHow. None of them claimed you would become rich…See More

Pete - Welcome to 48Days.net. And welcome to another Buckeye. I grew up in Mansfield and graduated from Ohio State way back in the Woody Hayes days.

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.

Just create a clear plan for what your business would look like - and then a timeline to make it happen. Lots of others here have done just that.

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

Pete, WELCOME to 48Days.net! I’m excited you’ve become a member. It sounds like you're very clear on what you want right now. Do you have any ideas on the application to get you to those streams of revenue?

You might consider joining the Leap group. There are some great discussions going on that will likely be very profitable for you.

Again, glad to have you here at 48Days.net.
