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.
Should I wait out my miserable job until my business is profitable?
If you are looking to build your own business, if you can ramp it up in 12 months, don’t change jobs now. Go ahead and stick it out.
Any advice for the desperately hopeful in finding clarity?
Clarity comes from taking action. Not from hoping or even continuing to learn more and more.
Make a list of 20 things you can do.
Then filter that through what you know about yourself and narrow it down to 4 or 5. Find out more about your personality traits here.
Then do a little more research on those 4 or 5.
Then choose one and act — all within 48 days.
A lot of times you learn in the process of things that don’t work.
Should I become a coach?
We have many 48 Days Certified Coaches that do not have the degree you think they should have to be a coach.
Our Coaching Mastery Program focuses on helping you develop your coaching business while learning how to coach.
My biggest problem in working for myself has been the lack of structure and loneliness.
You can create your own structure.
Create time and a plan to be with others. Groups like the 48 Days Eagles Community, local Chamber of Commerce, or Rotary Club can provide you the connection you may feel you need.
I’m a career counselor at a university and make $39,000 a year. I enjoy my work but my wife is not happy.
First, determine what you want your life to look like three years from now.
If you decide you want to stay at the university, what can you do that will create an additional income?
How can I evaluate personal development programs as being right for me?
I recommend you invest 5% of your total income in personal development. Find out more about how to apply this formula to invest in yourself here.
