I can double my income but my family will suffer!


Episode #590 December 15, 2017 —

In this week’s Podcast, we zone in on our goal setting with a great question from a listener who wants to know if he should push forward in 2018 to double his income knowing that his family life will suffer. We take a look at the 48 Days Goal Setting Workbook that includes setting goals for seven different areas of your life, not just career. Money is not how we should define success and therefore it should not lead our goal setting.

We also explore ways that this listener (and others) can meet his income goals without sacrificing the goals he has for his family and the other areas of his life.

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. One of my employees resigned but now wants to stay.  Should I keep him?
  2. I want to sell an online course -but only to people who share our conservative values
  3. I’m a 19-yr-old young man with a passion for farming but I have no money.  How can I do this?
  4. I know I can double my income in 2018 but my family will suffer.  Should I go for it?
  5. Good News

Cliff Feightner poem:

How will you get paid for your skills
Will it cover more than the bills
Will what you bring to the table
Say you are way more than able
To earn the pay and the frills.
