Voice-over actor: I have two friends, one of whom does voice-over work for a full-time job and one who does it on the side to make a little extra money. Another friend has a pre-teen daughter that does voiceover work for her college fund. Two of them took this voice-over course to get started and highly recommend it. Proofreader: Proofreading is when you take a document and scan it to fix errors. The most common form of proofreading is for court reporters, but authors and even bloggers also use proofreaders. Proofread Anywhere is currently the best course for learning how to proofread. Freelance Writer: The program, 30 Days or Less to Freelance Writing Success, is the best resource available to train in freelance. This is usually more professional writing than blogging but you don’t need to wait to build your own readership. Tutor/Online Teacher: While teachers and college students are the obvious choice for this side job, there are also gigs for music and English as a second language that pay pretty well. You can use a site like Tutor.com or start your own business (and do your own marketing). Newspaper Delivery: Call your local paper to find out more about earnings from a paper route and job details. Holidays at a Retail Location: Work evenings and weekends at a store that you love (mine would be Ralph Lauren), during the holiday season. You pick up extra cash and you’ll have the employee discount (up to 50% off at Ralph Lauren- you can clearly see that I’ve thought this through) to help with holiday shopping. Virtual Assistant: Virtual assistants help business owners run their day to day operations. Tasks can be anything from handling emails, scheduling clients, formatting, and scheduling blog posts, handling social media, and processing data. 30 Days to Virtual Assistant Success is the course you’ll want to take to get started. Dog Walker or Pet Sitting: Take advantage of being home while others are at work and start a dog walking or pet sitting business. It can grow quickly by word of mouth, and you (and your kids!) will get the added benefit of sunshine and exercise. Use this book to explain step-by-step how to get started. Etsy Shop: If you’re lucky enough to have a hobby that you can market, look into opening an Etsy shop to supplement your income. Stock Photography: If you have a fancy camera, you can make a pretty penny by selling your photos to stock photography sites. You can find out more here. Keep in mind, they aren’t looking for once in a lifetime Hawaiian sunset shots, but anything and everything from photos of irons, receipts, cash, grocery carts or anything else you have around. I strongly suggest you take a Creative Live stock photographer course first. Couponing: Consider extreme couponing and selling your surplus on Facebook yard sale sites. We have a neighbor that does this and it’s genius! She makes over $1,000 a month and it benefits everyone. She’s paid for the time it takes to coupon and local moms that don’t have the time to coupon benefit with crazy good deals from her. She uses Krazy Coupon Lady’s free coupon database to go and snatch the deals. Genius.

Now the amazing part is I don't have any draft listings, these four listings are old, from Christmas time. Three sold long ago, one has been relisted. All four are completely different, yet each completely different item had exactly 1,127,400 people search for those exact items! WOW!!! If I only knew that millions of people wanted these exact items, I would have got more to sell. Does ebay really expect anyone to believe anything they say these days?

Professor Beaton's drawing course was pretty cool in terms of the content. The grading is unclear and the assignments were brutal. Professor Beaton is one of those profs who doesn't remember that you have other courses to take. Daily deadlines, lots of group work, and too much dicussion of ancient art. She also wouldn't let me pick my own still life subject, even though I explained that I had already done our still life assignment in another course. Not the worst prof but not very good either. I wouldn't take another course with her.

When I first launched my blog, I wanted to make an extra $700 a month, so that I could continue to participate in my weekly exercise classes, pay for my daughter’s baby and me classes, and enjoy my weekly latte habit. Even though I was working 10 hours a week as a social media manager, the money I made from that job covered bills, food, and my blogging expenses. To cover my extra curricular activities, I sold things online and at thrift stores, I participated in paid focus groups, and even worked an occasional weekend shift at my old nursing job. Fortunately, my blog gained traction quickly and within 3 months I started earning money from it. Today my blog is my primary source of income. The point of my story is … if there is a will there is a way. If you need to make $700 or more a month – you can do it. If you need to make an extra $1,000 a month — you can do it.

I don't want to feel overwhelmed. I don't want to feel full of anxiety and stress. I don't want to be rushed every minute of every day. I don't want my house to be full of chaos and unhappiness. I don't want my mind being consumed with negative thoughts and my body being filled with physical tension. I don't want to feel so tired and exhausted. I don't want to feel like I live in a whirlwind. I don't want to feel 'less' than. I don't want to just exist from day to day

Mystery Shopper Scam called Shoppers Express. Received a priority mail from them with a check that looked legit for 2,350.00 Navy Army Community Credit Union. I called the credit union and they said that there are a ton of calls about this. Mark Henderson from " customer survery" text messaged me asking to confirm delivery and to ask when I would deposit the check and then go and buy 2050.00 to buy MOney Pak cash top up cards.

Dr. Beaton was one of the very first professors at Cal Poly in the 1960s and I hope he retires soon. He’ll make you hate life and wish you accepted that scholarship offer from Chico. His wife is some hotshot in the College of Agriculture so Cal Poly keeps him around to teach courses that nobody else wants to teach. He failed some kid in my class because the dude looked at his phone during a quiz just to check the time. The kid lost an industry internship and ended up leaving Poly. I also hated how Dr. Beaton speaks with a thick Russian or German accent and doesn’t care that we can’t follow along. Avoid Beaton at all costs. He once brought a dog to class, which was funny, but totally made one of my classmates cry because of her allergies. He made her leave class and didn’t apologize or anything. If you even ask for an assignment extension he takes off 10 points for asking.

This "professor" is still a graduate student at UCSB. He's super young and enthusiastic. But he has no "real world" business experience. He'll probably improve over time. Right now, he struggles to organize his lectures and seems nervous about public speaking. He's also very formal, perhaps to make up for his age. He wears a suit to class, including a tie, to look and seem older. If you challenge anything he says, or just ask a direct question, he begins to shake from anxiety and loses his train of thought. I think he needs more experience and a public speaking course. I would probably take him again, when he finishes his PhD, if he still teaches at Cal Poly.

Community Property Law concerns the distribution of property acquired by a couple during marriage in the event of the end of the marriage, whether by Divorce or death of one of the parties. In community property states all property accumulated by a husband and wife during their marriage becomes joint property even if it was originally acquired in the name of only one partner. The states that utilize a community property method of dividing resources were influenced by the Civil Law system of France, Spain, and Mexico. Laws vary among the states that recognize community property; however, the basic idea is that a husband and wife each acquire a one-half interest in what is labeled community property. A determining factor in the classification of a particular asset as community property is the time of acquisition. Community property is ordinarily defined as everything the couple owns that is acquired during the marriage with the exception of separate property owned by either of them individually. Separate property is that property that each individual brings into the marriage, in addition to anything that either spouse acquires by inheritance during the marriage. Generally, four types of property acquired after marriage amount to community property: earnings, damages obtained from a personal injury suit, damages awarded in an industrial accident action, and rents and profits from separate property.

Mr. Beaton's course was entirely based on memorization. Be prepared to memorize dates, titles, authors, and formulas. Also be prepared to follow APA style in all of your written work or lose points on every assignment. He alsogGives no feedback. My final paper was returned to me with the number "66" written on the last page-- no feedback or explanation. When I went to office hours, Mr. Beaton told me that he teaches too many courses per quarter to provide feedback! Seriously!? I really needed this course but I should have waited to take it with another prof. Beaton is sketch.

One of the easiest area F ge's to take with this professor. One article reading is assigned each class to write three short annotations on a note card and latter half of every class is used to write a letter to the author of the article. For every 4 responses sent back by the author, final exam grade is raised by 30%. Besides being an easy workload, professor Beaton truly engages in meaningful discussion with his students during class time in an interesting manner.

This class is ALL about participation. I would not say that the class is zero effort, but it's definitely a lighter load than most. If you're not into public speaking you can still get by fairly easily since Dr. Beaton will call on people to speak, but if you're loud expect to fight the other loud speakers for a chance to add your opinion. I was kinda disappointed we still had tests (and they're all essays) but if you pay attention in class and are able to draw common themes from the pieces it's not difficult at all. Overall it felt more like an english class, but I still feel like I learned quite a bit about network technology. Would definitely recommend this class & teacher to anyone looking for an F elective!

This professor assigns an ABSURD amount of work for a GE. Pop quizzes almost every day. Confusing homework assignments. Extremely difficult tests. Impossible to reach by email. Dense and theoretical readings. Exams are 100% essay based. Professor speaks with a strange accent and can be difficult to understand. Tells endless stories about his ex-wife and 3 kids. Huge time suck and waste of money. This is why people call it Camp Poly and transfer out to real schools. What a joke. Hasn't published anything in years. Knows nothing about information technology and shouldn't be teaching the class. He was fired from 3 other schools before coming to Poly.

This professor is really out of touch. He's been teaching at Poly for more than 35 years, which is cool but he needs to retire. He spends most of each class totally lost and then tells a bunch of stories about some bitter divorce he went through during the 1980s. He doesn't know how to use computers. He doesn't know how to use email. He's impossible to reach or meet with. Beaton also assigns a ridiculous amount of reading. Attendance is mandatory and he gives quizzes almost every class. During one class, Beaton gave two different pop quizzes: one at the beginning of class and a completely different quiz at the end! I could barely understand anything he says. Avoid at all costs unless you want to read 100+ pages per night. The bro is bitter about some custody battle from like 30 years ago. Several other students have told me that he was fired from other schools but that Cal Poly had to hire him because his new wife works in the Engineering College or something. He sucks so hard and I hated every minute of this class.

She teaches in communication studies but also a bunch of other departments at Poly. Nice lady but hard to reach or get help. My midterm was a B- and I wanted to find out why. Took me 4 weeks to get an appointment with her. Too late by that point to learn how to improve. Pulled a B in the class overall. SHE TAKES ATTENDANCE EVERY DAY, AT BOTH BEGINNING AND END OF CLASS. Seems really strict about everything.
