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 know that I do not want to continue down the path I am on because I am tired of waking up sore from the stress-filled sleep I’m currently getting each night. Something has to change.
I’m 39 and embarking on a college education for the first time – after being a stay-at-home mom for the last 15 years; In the field of Graphic Art, how much will my age affect my opportunities?
I am eager to quit as soon as possible because it is so depressing, but I don’t want to jeopardize my financial stability while I pursue freelance illustration. What do you suggest I do?Start with the 15-hour per week model. Once you get to where you are generating 50% of your full-time income, then you can move forward to go out on your own.
Hello Mr. Miller, I find myself not reading your emails that come to my email account weekly because it forces me to think about how I really need to step out on faith and start living my dream.
I hate my job so much it depresses me. I feel trapped and my attitude at work is costing me opportunities. I try very hard to not think negatively. I need my income but I want out BADLY.The risk is in staying where you are and letting it destroy you. I address all of those things in 48 Days To the Work and Life You Love.
