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.

He relates a true life story about the folly of thinking your fortune is going to be found in some far off place. It may in fact be available to you right in your own backyard – or just staring you in the face. Most people are not willing to accept that they have untouched opportunities right in front of them.
