Your face is the billboard of your mind

Choosing the right work model for you.

In this episode I share some Good News stories that are incredibly inspiring. Check out the 4-year-old from Birmingham, Alabama who uses his allowance money to buy a bag full of sandwiches and sodas so he can hand them out to the homeless. In spite of what you hear on the TV news, there’s a whole lot of good news happening today. Create some of your own!

Episode #611 May 11, 2018

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.


1. I am proud to say I can live and work like no one else! 

2.  Am I crazy to consider moving back into the traditional employment model? 

3. A can opener is completely useless in an apple orchard. 

4. I firmly believe that I’m more valuable than I’m getting paid. 

5. I work full-time still in the banking/mortgage industry but I feel a need to get going in ministry again.  

6. I am working as a full-time professional mental health counselor. In the last 3 years, I’ve been sicker than ever, more stressed than ever, burnt out, depressed, and have lost energy and passion for the things I previously was highly motivated in devoting my time and energy toward — It has been a rat race to the bottom of emotional depletion.

More questions


“Work must provide the opportunity for spiritual and personal growth as well as financial success.  The irony is that if it does not provide all three, there will be a natural pressure to keep the financial rewards low.  The search for money alone will always be self-defeating.”    Dan Miller
