Sometimes we look for complicated solutions – when a simple solution is right in front of us. Remember The King’s Speech? There is one critical scene where the king discovers his own power that explodes his credibility. You can increase your confidence by doing the very same thing!

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.
How do you combat technology, a listener asks?
Dan shares some comments from a consultant who wrote a book for recruiters and HR professionals and advises them about technology in the hiring process.
Technology is neither good or bad by itself. It can be used either negatively or positively.
Lately, I have been feeling discouraged. I’m not sure if I should continue and hope for the best or if I should start looking for another job before I get fired.
Hope is not a strategy. You need a clear plan.
First, ask yourself if this kind of selling is a fit for you. We are all selling, we just need to find the kind of selling that is a fit for us.
Don’t wait to get fired. Go back and take a fresh look. Do another job search immediately.
Already retirement age (67) divorced after 39 years to an unfaithful spouse. Not enough money to pay bills; going under financially. Can I survive?
You have a degree and work experience. Your best point of attack is to update your realtor’s license. Real Estate gives you a really big financial shovel (find out more about other big financial shovels here).
I am not a good reader and lose interest after 5 pages of continual reading – is there something more beneficial in reading the book rather than listening to the book?
Here are the 5 books Dan recommends EVERYONE read.
There are a lot of people who are not good readers. Audio is a really strong connection.
If you want to really believe something and make it a part of your life, read it out loud.
How do I find a side hustle if I’m super busy working full-time and getting my master’s degree.
An online business may be the best opportunity for you. Is there some unique knowledge you have that lends itself to a course.
We have a lot of people in the 48 Days Eagles Community who have Amazon Businesses or sell products online.

I love my work but it only produces “hobby” income.
In your coaching, make sure you have in your target audience people who have the means to pay you well.

Look at how you can move beyond individual coaching to position yourself for income in various areas.
Do you think online businesses are recession-proof, or perhaps a bit more recession-resistant than traditional jobs?
I do think online businesses are more recession-proof than traditional jobs.
Let’s look at the different dynamics of an online bookstore vs. a local brick and mortar bookstore.
