Why am I getting smarter but not richer?

smarter and richer

Great question. Learning more does not make you richer, but if you combine new knowledge with understanding and implementation, you can get both smarter and richer. It will change your life in many ways – including financially. We also look at how artists and coaches can increase their income. You can be good and broke if you don’t know how to build your brand and reputation.  Episode #670 – June 28, 2019 – 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 … Read More

How (and Why) To Become a Life Coach

be a coach

Every day I am asked by more people, “Dan, can I be a coach?”  And my response has always been, “Are people coming to you now for your advice and opinion?”  If they are, it may be a short step to position yourself as a coach.  If they are not, then perhaps you need to explore some other options.  (The fact that people are asking does not mean you are fully competent as a coach but it is likely a starting point.) In his book The Millionaire Messenger, Brendon Burchard addresses this question – “How could I possibly be considered an … Read More

You keep your F – I’m keeping my dream

Most naysayers and dream kickers are at the bottom themselves. Find people who are already performing at the level at which you’d like to be for inspiration

When Monty Roberts was in high school, his teacher gave the class the assignment of writing about what they wanted to do when they grew up.  Monty wrote that he wanted to own a ranch and raise thoroughbred racehorses.  His teacher gave him an “F” and explained that the dream was unrealistic for a boy living in a camper in the back of a pickup truck.  He would never be able to make this a reality.  When he offered Monty the chance to rewrite his paper for a higher grade, Monty told him, “You keep your F; I’m keeping my … Read More

Does the 48 Days Job Search process really work?

A reader asks Dan: Does the 48 days job search process really work? Dan answers with another reader's letter of success.

I received this note two days ago: Hi, Dan, I have read your book, 48 days, and I wanted to know does your job search process really work? I have been told that approach, mailing through the mail is old school, takes too long, people toss letters like that in the trash, email is faster, people keep emails as oppose to paper, etc. I have been out of work for 4 months now. I am totally petrified. I have tried networking, passing out my resume to family and friends, etc., and still nothing. I am not a fan of picking … Read More

Your success is guaranteed – if you do this

Investing in yourself, Jim Rohn, Rich People, Libraries, Books

Your success is guaranteed – if you do this “Here is a rule that will guarantee your success – and possibly make you rich: Invest 3 percent of your income back into yourself.” That’s great advice from Brian Tracy. I’m going to show you the formula that can double or triple your income. Stocks, bonds and mutual funds are for conservative people who just want to protect the money they already have.  I will describe the only investing strategy I recommend if you want to exponentially increase your income — investing in yourself. It will work for you whether you … Read More

Are you ready to be a coach?

Many of you are positioning yourselves as “coaches” here in the 48 Days community.  I see your activity in the Coaching with Excellence group or you’re one of the 87 people who have already joined our Coaching Mastery Program.  Every day I am asked by more people, “Dan, can I be a coach?”  And my response has always been, “Are people coming to you now for your advice and opinion?”  If they are, it may be a short step to position yourself as a coach.  If they are not, then perhaps you need to explore some other options.  (The fact that … Read More

Coaching, Speaking OR Writing can leave you poor

I have been privileged to work with a variety of “experts” over the last few years – helping them leverage their knowledge into real businesses. There’s a three part formula any of us can use to clearly state what we do – here’s mine. I help high potential individuals Understand their unique and most powerful talents and passions So they can make a larger impact, leave a legacy and thrive financially. You can use that formula to state your own position and work. But here’s a common theme:  Authors want to write books, speakers want to speak and coaches want … Read More

Can I serve others well and still make a living?

I have always been inundated with requests for ministry (or pro bono) coaching.  Just today I received a lengthy letter from a 60-yr-old pastor, whose board in his description is replacing him with “a new and younger man.”  He has no health insurance, is living “paycheck to paycheck” and has no idea where to go from here. After a “ministry” lunch meeting yesterday, I made a quick stop at the bank. The teller dissolved into tears as she told me that she too has felt “called” to do something significant, but feels trapped at the lowly position at the bank … Read More

7 reasons I love being a coach

This is the time of year when many people are taking a quick look at their progress.  Are they any better off financially this year than last?  Are their relationships stronger, more loving and less stressful?  Is their work the same old drudgery even though they know there’s got to be a better fit?  Are they living “too small” while fully aware their best life is calling? Those are the things I hear every day as a coach.  I can’t imagine work that is more rewarding than what I get to do as a coach.  People are open about their … Read More
