48 Days To The Work You Love Series

The following is a series of shows from a podcast that I produce called Pursuing A Balanced Life. This podcast was originally called “My Crazy Life” started out as my daily audio journal where I share things that are on my mind on a day by day basis. Today, Pursuing A Balance Life provides inspirations to thousands of people around the world proving that the thought that if you Follow Your Passion And The Money Will Follow is true!

The following episodes are the episodes that I produced to in an effort to share the insights that I had pulled from reading Dan Miller’s 48 Days To The Work You Love.

PLEASE NOTE: These recordings were done back in 2008 when I had just started podcasting full-time as my career. A LOT of things AMAZING things have happened since then. I consider Dan Miller as one of my main sources for inspiration that has led to the success that I have experienced in many areas of my life.

Further Notes:
As I said above, a lot has changed in my life, especially how I think about work and business. I’m not sure when I started to listen to Dan Miller’s podcast, but between this book and Dan’s podcast, I have consistently received inspiration on a weekly basis for three years that has kept me pushing for bigger and better goals in my personal and business life.

It had become a dream of mine to get to meet Dan Miller, to interview him on one of my podcasts, and to have the opportunity to tell him just how much impact the principles he shares in his books and on his podcast have had on someone like me.

I talked about this dream on one of my podcast episodes and just a few days later, I recorded this interview with Dan Miller. A few weeks after that, Dan hired me to help him upgrade his podcasting equipment and teach him a new process for producing his show. I talked about how this all happened in Episode 450 of Pursuing A Balanced LIfe.

But the story does not stop there. Dan Miller decided to interview me for his audience which led to some pretty amazing things for my business. Dan’s interview with me can be found on Episode 161 of Podcast Answer Man.

Dan has since become an ongoing client and even recorded this testimonial of my services:

This journey has been so amazing and almost like a fairy tale. I was invited as a guest speaker on Dan’s 2011 No More Mondays Cruise. A cruise that would include like minded people who were making a living doing the work that they love, work that is fulfilling and that helps accomplish your God given purpose in life.

I ended up taking my entire family of five on this cruise to celebrate what we have been able to achieve in the first three years of doing the work that we love for a living. I also made the decision to invite my wife to speak with me on the cruise so that we could share the full story of how we got to where we are today. You can hear our entire talk from the cruise in Episode 198 of Podcast Answer Man.

After we returned from the cruise, Dan wrote me this note:

Cliff,

Man I just wanted to thank you again for your contributions on the cruise. Your topic tied in extremely well with our theme of blending work and play. Your and Stephanie’s story is an amazing example of the principles I believe in – bringing hope to others on so many levels (spiritually, physically, financially and emotionally).

What a great group we had. Joanne and I are still reminiscing about all the special sights, sounds, tastes, experiences and connections.

Hope you guys got home safely and are back to bringing hope and encouragement to a waiting world. We thoroughly enjoyed spending time with Megan, Matt and McKenna as well. You are a blessed man!!

I am, indeed, a very blessed man! Words can not begin to express how much fun our entire family had on the cruise. In hindsight, this trip was a major investment in, not only our business, but our family as well. Over the course of eleven days, this journey changed the dynamics of our family and provided life lessons that could only be experienced hands on, rather than being read about in a book.

The following footage is about 21 minutes in length. A majority of the photography and video footage was done by our three children who are ages 11, 9, and 5. Please keep this in mind when you encounter portions of the video that may not be as steady as you would like.

Here’s another video done Joel Boggess and his wife, Dr. Pei Kang from http://4pointscoaching.com.


I share all of this to say that Dan’s book, 48 Days To The Work You Love (Click Here To Order An Autographed Copy), has had a profound impact on my life. All you need to do is listen to how I sounded back in 2008, when I recorded the podcast episodes listed above, and then see where I am today. I wish that more people would experience the truth that if you Follow Your Passion, The Money Will Follow.
