I have a great business name idea, but can't seem to get it to work as well as I'd like.  Please give me some ideas to improve it and make it fabulous! I am a certified tax professional, self-employed bookkeeper with a few clients, and have a Bachelor's degree in Accounting.  I would like to build up my business to the point where I am busy during tax season, then have regular bookkeeping clients throughout the year.  I am trying to figure out a business name that tells my clients what services…See More

Profile Information

How did you hear about 48Days.NET, and what do you hope to get out of being a part of this community?
Started listening to Dan's podcast, then checked out the website and now I'm joining the 48 Days Community. I would like to expand my small bookkeeping business and would like to use the members of this community to find out how they are increasing their businesses.
What is your current work situation? Employee, self-employed, generating any income on your own?
I am currently self-employed doing bookkeeping for a few clients.
And then...what is your goal/dream for your work life?
I would like to build up my practice to bring in more income, but still maintain the flexible work schedule that I currently have.
How about your personal life? Any specific goals or achievements or dreams you are pursuing (or want to pursue)?
I recently started to set and achieve goals in several different areas. My biggest current goals are reading one book a month, riding my bike 4x a week, and working on learning Spanish.
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 like organization and structure. I am friendly, but an introvert. I am really good with individual income taxes and bookkeeping.

Hello Tracy,

I try to take time each week to welcome new members to 48Days.Net. So, let me say "welcome" to you! I know you will find this to be a great site filled with people who are experiencing true success in both life and work.

Also, I'd like to point out that one of the best places to connect with other liked-minded people here is in the GROUPS section. There are groups for just about every interest you can think of, and if you can't find a group that interests you, you can start one. Groups are my favorite part of 48Days.Net!

Finally, if you happen to be a speaker or author (or want to become either), check out these two groups. They are two of the most popular groups on the site because of all the great conversation taking place:

* Speak It Forward -- REAL Success and Profit for Speakers!
* Write It Forward -- REAL Success and Profit for Writers!

Again, enjoy 48Days.Net. It's a great place to be!

Live it forward,
Kent Julian
