Episode #599 February 16, 2018 – 

What will it take for you to be able to say that your soul accompanies you to work each day? I get so many messages from people who say “I hate my job.” Let’s explore solutions and focus on finding work that fits your skills and abilities; personality traits and values, dreams and passions. Always remember that you’re in the driver’s seat.

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.
