Are you David or a square block of stone?


In this episode I talk about the futility of looking for investors before you have some level of success.  If you have an invention – sell 1000 and then you’ll have a basis for getting investors. If you are a software developer, develop something that 1500 people sign up for with a monthly fee. If you’re an author, write a book and sell 2000 copies – then publishers will talk to you about your next one. If you’re an artist and you’re looking for investors, show them pictures of the last 20 pieces you sold.

Finding money is not your challenge – producing something that people will pay for is your first step.

Episode #608 April 20, 2018

Hi, this is Dan Miller – and yes you’re listening to the 48 Days Radio show – where each week we take 48 minutes to dive into real life questions about finding your passion, deciding what kind of life you want to live – and then finding or creating work that allows you to show up every day, excited to be able to do something that is meaningful, fulfilling – and profitable.  This is where normal, indecision and ambiguity come to die.  Welcome to the 48 Days Radio Show.


1. I need an investor for my idea 

2.  Is it possible to think you hated your job but then learn to love it with new management in place?  

3.  Do you think there’s a market for Good News? 

4. Is it realistic to expect to monetize my podcast?


I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free. - Michaelangelo Click To Tweet

Your dreams are already there. Just chip away at the parts of your life that don’t fit your dreams.

Call to Action:  

I want you to see your angel and then carve away everything in your life that doesn’t look like that angel.
