Could we all be a pastor?

A lady’s question recently made me pause and think. With a little research, I discovered some traits we all want to display that could in fact make us be seen as a “pastor.”

Episode #736 July 24, 2020

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.

Questions: I’m in my mid-50s and a lifelong photographer. Unfortunately, photography is now a supersaturated field and very low paying.

Try to see what you’re doing with new eyes.

Think of the kerosene seller after the invention of the lightbulb.

Vincent Pugliese is a perfect example in photography. He has a course teaching parents how to take sports photos of their kids.

David Molnar is another photographer who has developed a course on how to take photos with their iPhones.

Where can I get training on becoming a bookkeeper?

Go to linkedinlearning.com/days – you’ll find 210 courses for bookkeeping.

What’s the best way to market my “how-to” process on paying for college by only using scholarships?

Launching a book is like starting any other business. Don’t try to write a book and launch it unless you approach it as a true business.

Writing the book is only 10% of the process.

Budget $3-5,000 to write a book.

A few tips:

  • make your how-to a course that people can purchase for $17
  • volunteer to speak with a 20-minute presentation for local organization
  • be an interesting guest on podcasts and radio shows
  • have a free resource that you give away that will add people to your email list so you can build a relationship with them

How to become a “pastor” to everyone you meet.

  • Integrity
  • Humility

  • Vision and Insight
  • Perseverance
  • Compassion
  • Teacher/Encourager
The Stages of Life As It Relates to Career
  • Learning – In your 20s – A time when you try lots of things to see which ones motivate you. There are not many things you can do in your 20s that I would consider mistakes.
  • Experimenting – In your 30s – You sort out your interests (and your friends) to eliminate the ones that don’t fit who you are and where you’re going.
  • Mastery – In your 40s – You focus on the things you’ve kept after the experimenting stage. You’re developing your skills and becoming an expert at them.
  • Reaping – In your 50s – The period you reap the rewards of the decisions you’ve made previously and create systems to reach your highest earning potential.
  • Guiding – In your 60s – You mentor others with the wisdom you’ve gained in prior years and leverage your major life message
  • Legacy – In your 70s – The decade you put things in place that will live on when you’re no longer here.
  • Maximizing Your Zone of Genius – In your 80s – You spend 75% of your time doing the one thing you do best
