Product FAQs

I want personal coaching-where do I go?

For personal coaching, please go to http://www.48days.com/coaching/.  There you will find full details on coaching with 48 Days. There is an online application that you may fill out—Dan’s daughter Ashley will personally review every application that comes in and connect you with one of our 48 Days Endorsed Coaches.  Their prices vary in range, so don’t hesitate to fill out the application and you may be able to get a better fitting package from another one of our coaches.  Distance need not be an issue, as many of our coaches also use the phone, Skype, and emails for coaching—the key is to find one that is the best match for you, not just one that is closest to your doorstep.

If you know what you want to do and simply want an extra boost in the job search process, try the more do-it-yourself and budget friendly approach to resumes, interviews and finding employment through our JobCoach with Coaching.

48 Days Career Profiles

How do I purchase more credits for the 48 Days Career Profile?

If you want a friend or family member to take the profile, please go to the 48 Days Personality Profile page in the store and purchase the report. On the new user sign-up page (where you go after purchasing), make sure to enter in the information of the person that is taking the report. If they do not have a different email address, please enter in their firstnamelastname@48days.com. The system only allows one person to use each email address.

If you have multiple people that want to take the report, your best bet is to purchase them in bulk – if you purchase five or more, it is only $20 per report!! You may purchase Personality Profile Reports in bulk here. Make the purchase, and you will need to sign up as a new user again-use a different email address, or use your firstnamelastname@48days.com. Once you have done this, please sign out and wait for an email with instructions on how to set up new users.

 

I have already signed up as a new user and need to access the personality profile-where do I go?

Please go to this page.  Enter in your username and password you created when you purchased the profile. Once you sign in, be sure to carefully read the directions, as there are important instructions on taking and downloading the report. Once you have completed adding all three reports, please sign out and you will be re-directed to the application guide where you can hear Dan’s “Step-by-Step Application Guide” on the 48 Days Career Profile.

General Product Questions

I’m interested in starting my own business and wanted to get 48 Days to Creative Income-I can’t find it on the website-where is it?

48 Days to Creative Income was discontinued in November of 2007.  January 2008 RandomHouse released Dan’s newest entrepreneurial book, No More Mondays.  This is the replacement for Creative Income. In January 2009 there will be a workbook component sold with it, similar to the 48 Days to the Work You Love hardback and workbook.  You may access No More Mondays here: http://48days.com/store/no-more-mondays/.  (You may also purchase the audio book on our products page).

How do I ensure I’m getting the faith-based version of No More Mondays?

Unfortunately, both No More Mondays books look the same online, although the faith-based one says “expanded version” on it (when you actually get the book). The best way to ensure that you are getting the faith-based version is to check the publisher-the only publisher for that one is Waterbrook. If you go through our website and click on the faith-based version link, you will be directed to the right one as well.

What is the difference between No More Mondays and 48 Days to the Work You Love

Dan’s 48 Days to the Work You Love has been very successful for many years. This is the step-by-step patented 48 Day program that has changed thousands of lives. The workbook is set up with worksheets and exercises to get you on the path to the work you love.This is the life application program of Dan’s “Work You Love” principles. Dan’s book, by the same title, delves deeper into the philosophical and theological principles laid forth in the workbook.

No More Mondays is Dan’s newer release (Jan 2008) and this focuses on the ever-changing marketplace.  In this book Dan encourages everyone to be aware of the changing work models. We are rapidly moving toward the time when only 50% of the American workforce will be employees. You may be a free-lancer, a consultant, a contingency worker, an independent contractor, an entrepreneur, an electronic immigrant, a temp, or a number of other growing terms. All are reasonable terms for the creative, non-traditional work models that are allowing 465,000 new business startups each month in the United States alone.  If you are looking for a newer model on what your J-O-B might look like, No More Mondays is the book for you.

Are the 48 Days materials good for a high schooler? For a retiree?

This product spans across the map for age groups-whether you are 16 or 60, it offers the same valuable principles. We actually have some 48 Days coaches that speak specifically to high school and college age youth about the 48 Days materials. Many of the clients that Dan works with on a one-on-one basis are coming to him in their 50s and later saying they don’t know what they want to be when they grow up. Many have felt confined to the degrees they got in college-oftentimes because it was what their parents wanted them to do. We strongly urge teenagers and college students to read these materials before they become that 50-something. Finding your passions and understanding your personality style, and that it’s okay to NOT have all the answers on the next 40 years when you’re 20-that is so important. We recommend not only the 48 Days to the Work You Love book and workbook, but also the 48 Days Career Profile, which gives you a 26+ page report on your unique personality style, including a list of career matches that would be a good fit. You can read all about it and download a sample report here.
