Hello Jake, Thanks for your welcome to the 48days community. I am kind of doing two different things at the moment. One I am a Licensed Acupuncturist, and I also teach Kung Fu and Tai Chi. So I do help people live healthier and improve their health and wellness. We do have a Tai Chi DVD that we have for sell which I would really like to market better and scale it, do you have any ideas for that?
The other business that I do on the side is an international business. I am a manufacturer of dog leashes, collars, and harnesses with factory in China. I am the US presence here for the Chinese factory and would like to really get this business going. My main problem is meeting buyers of companies, we are not retail so everything I sell will be in large quantities. Many of the brands that come out of our factory are already in the big box stores. I would like to get what we are making into those stores as well. Do you have any ideas for that? Anyway, thanks for your interest and help.
Hey Jake, thanks! I appreciate your feedback and help in getting connected to groups. I am after the same thing in wanting to pursue ways to create that freedom for myself and my family. Your group sounds great. I'm in that season right now of young kids and marginalizing exercise. I will look into it for sure.
Yes, absolutely it's still going, but it's still young... Feel free to jump in and get involved with the discussions. I'm honored that you've joined... Now let's come alive together and change a broken world!
Thanks Jake! It's nice to see Wisconsin well represented here! My wife graduated from UW-Eau Claire and we lived in Menomonie for a couple of years when we were first married. Love that area! Looking forward to being part of the 48 Days Community!
Thanks for welcoming me to 48DAYS! I think I will have to look into some of the groups here, maybe The Music Studio or Speak It Forward.
When I say "the emerging culture," I'm referring to the unchristian/post-christian culture that's come out in the last 30 years or so. A lot of people refer to this as simply the post-modern, but I think it goes even deeper than that. This culture is centered around technology and consumerism, and both of those play big roles in the spiritual fabric of this generation. So, how does the church reach them? It's a big question and a big job. Hopefully, I would find a way to do this through either word or music. We'll see!
In regards to the pvc, sure just play with it and see if it works. For me dowel rods work best and the price is close to the same. As for the kits I hope to do something by beginning of summer. We'll see.
It's great to have you a part of the "I'm Livin' Golden" group! I know it will be a great place for you to find purpose, passion, and fulfillment.
If there's anything I can do to serve you, please let me know.
Also, take a moment to join in on the discussion, Overcoming Obstacles. I'd love to hear about some of the things you've conquered in on your journey so far. And if there's something you're facing right now, I'm sure we can give you some insight on how to push through it.
So glad you're with us in my 'Growing Coaches' group! I'm delighted to see you join the ranks of successful career coaches. Be sure to dive into the discussions and let us know your questions and greatest needs.
Also, if / when you want more in-depth guidance, you might also check out our professional coaches group within Free Agent Academy (www.FreeAgentAcademy.com).
Jacob, just wanted to drop in and welcome you to this great community! As you’ll come to find, this is a place of inspiration, encouragement and tons of knowledge. I hope you find that and more as you pursue your endeavors.
