Cliff Feightner ‘s Poem This Week 

Is your job defining your life
Is it maybe a cause for much strife
Is it a way to employ
Your life to enjoy
Or does it cut through your soul like a knife

“Being profitable means I get to continue serving people without having to ask for donations.”  Jim Cockrum [Tweet This]

Summary:

A listener of The 48 Days Podcast is leaving her psychotherapy practice to support an ailing cousin. This leaves Dan with the sentiment: “I’d like to be a brother like that”. So, how can we be brothers and sisters to those in need? How do we live in a way where there is room to give generously to those around us and, at the same time, pursue and care for our own needs and desires. This is the age-old question that will be tackled on today’s podcast. Tune-in as Dan opens this discussion, shares good news that is happening around our world, and inspires listeners to re-evaluate the notion of working FOR profit so that we CAN do the meaningful work.
