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.
I’m struggling to quit a job that is killing my soul.
You are not doing anyone any favors by staying in a job that’s killing your soul.
Give yourself 48 days to come up with a new plan, but don’t worry about starting over.
Look inward first at what you know about yourself — your skills and abilities; personality traits and values, dreams and passions. Get the details in 48 Days To the Work and Life You Love.

I’m 16 years old. Can I really chase any career I want?
At 16 years old, you are definitely not too young to pursue any career you want to.
I’m having a hard time figuring out how to break away from my corporate job that pays well and transition to my passion.
You don’t necessarily have to break away from your corporate job to get started in real estate investing.
I recommend you get a mentor. Chris Niemeyer is my best recommendation for you – https://www.chrisniemeyer.com/
My big dream is wanting to start something bigger than myself.

Should I wait until my kids are in school to pursue my passion?
There are so many reasons in life that pop up that seem like good valid reasons. But all the lights will never be all green for you to move forward.
I recommend you go ahead and start, even if it’s not full-blown what you want to do.
Get a piece of paper and write down 20 things you can do around your passion and then identify two or three of them that you can do right now that you could include your kids in and not take you away from them.“Hold fast to dreams, for if dreams die, life is a broken-winged bird that cannot fly.” – Langston HughesClick To Tweet
