Podcast Answer Man Episode 140
Dan Miller Interview – Author of 48 Days To The Work You Love
I started podcasting as a hobby four years ago, on December 16th, 2005. Over the course of the first two years, it became a dream of mine to do podcasting full-time as my career. Two years ago, on January 1st, 2008, I took the bold step of leaving my 11 year career in insurance, making $87,000 per year, to make my dream a reality.
I'm going to post some important links below in just a moment. However, right now, I want to tell you how yet another dream has been made a reality. You see, when I started my business, I had NO IDEA what I was doing. I had never had any formal business training. I had no clue about how to deal with accounting, taxes, unemployment insurance, etc. It was all very overwhelming to me and I had a great deal of anxiety about how to make the work I love to do pay the bills.
I hope that you enjoy the interview with Dan nearly as much as I enjoyed the opportunity to have this conversation with him. Here are the links that I mentioned in the episode:
http://gspn.tv/passion – This link will take you to Pursuing A Balanced Life Episode 425 titled “Follow Your Passion And The Money Will Follow.” I hope that you'll find this episode inspirational as I share just how far our business has come in under two years.
http://gspn.tv/passion2 – This link will take you to Family From The Heart episode 88 titled “Difficult Decisions.” This episode is like a sequel to the episode mentioned previously. In this episode, my wife joined me as we shared the reality of just how difficult things were in that first year of doing our own business.
http://gspn.tv/48-Days – This link will take you to a special page that I created where I have all the episodes that I recorded as my audio review of the book 48 Days To The Work You Love. In fact, when I listen back to these episodes, I'm amazed at just how much my mindset about what I do has changed.
Again, I hope that you find this episode enjoyable. Please leave your feedback in the comments section below or call my voice mail feedback hotline at 859-795-4067.
