"Court--thank you for sharing! I read this yesterday and it was so relate-able. I know we ask questions of each other, share images and steps in our process, but thank you for taking some time to commiserate a bump in the road experience with me!"
"Thanks John. My buyer isn't a worry for me at all, we have a good working relationship. I think the real issue is that I'm discouraged after having invested a week's worth of time, labor, and money into the design and creation, and…"
"Okay guys, I need a pep talk. I have a local store here that has started buying my journals and selling them. Now that the winter slump is easing, they asked me for more books. My normal glue wasn't available, and I was in a hurry, and used a…"
"Thank you Nathan and Melissa! I'd love to see more of everyone's work posted on the pinterest site, so please consider uploading your creativity there. Its so encouraging and inspiring to see each other's pieces grouped together.…"
"Have any of you tried the free app "Paper"? Its a lot of fun to play with on a tablet. For under $10 you can buy additional 'drawing' tools. I've been playing with it and its sparked some creativity in me, which is so nice!…"
"I don't have a good plan yet, but I put items in my etsy shop today for cyber Monday... I know I had more views today than I've in a while. Now to turn views into purchases. What is everyone else doing? I like your 12 Days of Christmas…"
"Hi everyone! I haven't posted much in here recently, but I've been reading your posts! I just wanted to do an excited, online squeal for you guys because an old architecture classmate contacted me last month. He's opening a design and…"
"Sometimes I see if I can teach a workshop somewhere. Maybe not what you always want to be associated with, but you can try scrapbooking shops; the colors, textures, and creative people give me a quick fx when I'm in a rut. I know a couple…"
"Heather--the book Platform is written by Michael Hyatt, retired CEO of Thomas Nelson publishing. I believe the book deals with the idea that no matter how great your product/idea, you need a platform so others can see your products. Hyatt addresses…"
How did you hear about 48Days.NET, and what do you hope to get out of being a part of this community?
Four years ago my mother sent me the book "48 Days to the Work You Love" audio book. I have recently completed my Master's program and am looking to be engaged in work that suits my passions. I started listening to the book again, and then purchased "No More Dreaded Mondays" to help generate a new mindset and ideas.
What is your current work situation? Employee, self-employed, generating any income on your own?
Post College Intern at a local church.
And then...what is your goal/dream for your work life?
I would love to explore my creative side in making products that bring functional joy to people (cards, calendars, quilts, mobiles, etc.). I would be interested in taking this idea and implementing it in a non-profit organization that specializes in young women exiting a life of human trafficking.
How about your personal life? Any specific goals or achievements or dreams you are pursuing (or want to pursue)?
I was told as a child to give up my dream of becoming an artist because I couldn't make a living with it. Yet that did nothing to stamp out my creativity and desire to create. I would love to continue my personal and spiritual growth while creating, interacting, and supporting myself.
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 creative and organized. I interact well with small numbers of people. I "shepherd" well in that I listen and empathize, allowing someone to feel and express. Along with that I encourage people--I feel it is also highly important for those leaders who pour into others to be poured into so they are not drained.
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:
I am interested in creating journals, quilts, mobiles and other items to bring joy into daily lives of people. I am also adept at going "shoulder to shoulder" with others, offering encouragement, counseling, and a listening ear to convey that individuals are valuable in whatever circumstance they find themselves.

Welcome to 48days. As you get familiar with all the opportunities on the site, I hope it will help you clarify your goals, learn, and achieve your dreams of success. I have found the people who participate on the website are amazing, insightful individuals who are open and willing to lend a hand.
I can relate with being told to ditch my dreams for something practical. Thankfully, everything is fixable so now I'm tweaking things so I'm following my dreams.
Just noticed you joined 48Days.net -- WELCOME! It's a great site with tons of great people.

One other thing…I want to offer you a gift. You can download my FREE e-resource entitled Goal-Setting That Actually Works! by joining the REAL Success E-Zine community at www.liveitforward.com.
