If I was gambler, I would not gamble on the direct success of the project (… that their plans will unfold as predicted.) However, it is an attempt to improve the way society is structured and an interesting set of concepts.
If you think our world needs “big thoughts” or a new direction, the movement described in this is already a part of the conversation.
10. Monetize your Photos – Follow the instructions at Staree, use your social media account, and collect the cash. This is unbelievable to someone who doesn’t understand today’s social media business environment, but the cash they’ll pay you to do this is real. More info here: http://staree.com/
9. Yak it up on Twitter – Tweet on a topic and get paid to do it. Believe it not, this is how the world works. So why not profit from it? More info here: http://izea.com/publishers/tweeters/
8. MySurvey – Lots of prizes, rewards, points, and so on. If you invite your friends to join, you’re eligible for a bonus too. Begin here: https://www.mysurvey.com/
7. Mystery shoppers are hired by businesses to shop at their own stores undercover. The mystery shoppers then report back to the businesses, telling what they found, what they thought, and most importantly how the employees were. Get paid to eat out, buy clothes, review customer service, and so on.
6. Find it in Carwash Vacuum Cleaners – All those people who suck up dirt and leaves from the interiors of their cars are also sucking up stray coins. Many car wash vacuum cleaners have a removable bucker on the bottom that collects the dirt over the course of the day. For a busy car wash, there’ll be a regular supply of coins on a daily basis, right in the “garbage” that would otherwise be thrown out. Luckily, being at a car wash, it’s easy to clean the coins in no time. The odd bill will show up in the vacuums too, even $20s on occasion.
5. Creative Street Begging – Make a creative sign, craft a witty one-liner, or otherwise get people on the street to give you spare change.
4. Convert Ideas into T-Shirts with CafePress.com – You’ll sell as many t-shirts as you’re clever enough to sell. CafePress is one of the top destinations for customers and micro-sellers in the world.
3. Participate in Clinical Trials – Health researchers are frequently looking for test subjects for new research projects. Fully understand the risks before you sign up for anything, though, since your health is at stake. (!!)
2. Amazon – Sell virtually anything. Amazon carries a lot more than just books, CDs and movies. Here’s the starting page for their affiliate program: https://affiliate-program.amazon.com/
1. iTunes – Know anyone who buys and/or rents music, TV shows, games, audio books, podcasts, or documentaries? Then why aren’t you getting in on the action and getting paid every time they use Apple’s store? Start here: http://www.apple.com/itunes/affiliates/
Some of these ideas are quicker than others (and some are more likely to make $100 than others), but hopefully this helps you get that $100 in a week or a day!
Rising healthcare costs have been rightfully labelled as an important issue. The following program highlights several reasons why health costs around the globe are a challenge to “fix.” Be prepared to be aghast.
Is it the doctors fault? Insurance? Federal bungling? Big Pharma? Antiquated record-keeping? Inflation? Baby boomers? Malpractice defense? Entrenched interests? The Bogeyman?
Skip ahead to 2:11 for the start of the topic, which the host rightfully calls a “wedge issue.” It shouldn’t be. Regardless of political preference, everyone wants healthcare to be affordable.
The guest expert, Dr. Keith Smith, is introduced at 5:50. His presentation is not glitzy, but does an excellent job of beginning to illumine this thorny topic:
Everyone wants healthcare costs solved. No one seems to know how to do it. Gaining literacy on the issues at hand is the first step to “fixing healthcare.”
