We’re told 81% of Americans say they have a book in them. Personally, I think a lot of those should stay right where they are – inside them. Not every story needs to be shared with the world.

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.

- People – who are the people you want to serve?
- Passion – what problem are you passionate about helping to solve in the next 2-5 years?
What are some ways people can share their message?
Jonathan says there are four key competencies around sharing your message.
