The Top 10 Hardest Industries to Get Into

The Top 10 Hardest Industries to Get Into

Disclaimer: This is not an article written to discourage, but to inform people that there are many ultra competitive industries to get into, and that it is important to be cautious when choosing a career path. Whenever you’re at the counselor’s office, thinking about the future, or just thinking what professions you could get into, you always have one dream job. Some people want to be actors, others want to be singers, and we all know that one guy who wants to be a President. Here is compiled a good month worth of research and comparison between several fields of work to determine which industries are the hardest to get into and be successful in.   10. Pornography Okay, so this might not be the most politically correct topic to approach in the article but pornography is truly an odd, close knit industry where success is sold by the media, but almost never guaranteed. It is common belief that the porn industry generates tens of billions of dollars per year, but that assumption is false. According to Forbes, pornography only generates an approximate billion dollars per year. With the general population thinking that there are fountains of cash to be made in porn, more and more people fly out to California (the porn mecca) in hopes of becoming famed “pornstars”. The only thing that this does is give porn companies an ever increasing amount of willing actors which will allow them to lower pay and create a ridiculous turnover rate, which in my opinion, is only second to the fast food and film industry turnover rates (fast foods have a...
Earn Money with Instagram: What Your Competitors Don’t Know

Earn Money with Instagram: What Your Competitors Don’t Know

While Instagram is making…hem hem… billions, we as users of social media, are tricked into believing that there is no money in it for us. That’s wrong! Instagram CAN make you rich. You CAN earn money with Instagram. In a proper way of speaking, Instagram can seriously help your wallet. I stumbled upon a couple sentences in TIME magazine’s latest issue that sparked serious curiosity in me. Apparently, in Kuwait, Instagram has been used as a means to help businesses grow and earn money! The idea is that business owners and/or professionals create an official Instagram page, amass a following of people that are interested in their products, and then advertise, and maybe even sell their products. How Farmers Use Instagram to Earn Their Money Let’s say I’m a farmer that is trying to sell a cow in North Dakota. Instead of dragging my unwilling cow to a marketplace on a crowded Saturday afternoon, I’ll go on Instagram where all my fellow farmers and cow enthusiasts follow me, take a snapshot of my cow, and set a price. The location function in the app will allow me to communicate my position with other farmers, so that only farmers who are willing to make the trip will give a price. The price is then negotiated through the comments, in the manner of an auction. After a couple of hours, I will have found a buyer, and within the next few days, my cow will be sold, and I will have more money and one less cow! This example is rudimentary, as I doubt farmers, in this day and age, sell...
Love and Money: When You Are Too Busy for a Relationship

Love and Money: When You Are Too Busy for a Relationship

Human beings crave two essential stimuli: love and money. Both require a significant investment whether it be time or thought. It is the aspect when we realize that we may be too busy for a relationship. So, how does a person exactly balance the two? We have interviewed and have asked a few young entrepreneurs from the large organization of EE to share their stories as well as opinions on this matter. The EE Movement is a rising movement and secret society of young and ambitious entrepreneurs from all walks of life. They are trained by multi-millionaires who are spreading their wisdom that got them to the top upon the deserving youth. In the words of Brett Bouchy, we as men and women, who strive to be different and successful, are a different breed of people. The ordinary doesn’t suffice anymore. We want our significant others to be ideal, to help us reach our goals, as well as helping them reach theirs. Meet McKenzie Hughes, a senior at Gilbert High School, as well as a very driven entrepreneur, who is part of the EE Movement. “In a healthy relationship, I honestly feel as though it’s quite tough to balance those two. I think in order for it to work out, support and motivation is everything. The support can’t just be one way; it should be give and take. If you get that support to strive to be a better entrepreneur and a better person overall, you’re going to want to better the life of your significant other. Personally, I want to see hard work go in both ways in...

How Do Rappers Make Money and Really How Much Do They Make?

How Do Rappers Make Money and Really How Much Do They Make?

We all know how much certain rappers like to brag about the money they have. At times, it can even become tiresome. Do rappers really make as much money as they say they do? And if they do, how do rappers make money? Aside from Jay Z, Eminem, Nas, or somebody like Kanye West, I can’t imagine many rappers with as much money as flaunted in the average mainstream rap song. Let’s calculate: Album Sales | How do Rappers Make Money? According to a list by popular hip hop website, hiphopdx.com, the top selling hip hop albums of early 2013 averaged 304,400 units with Kendrick Lamar’s Good Kid Maad City on top (746,000 units sold) and Trinidad James’ Don’t Be Safe selling the least (11,000). If we assume that a well-respected, mainstream rapper sells about 300,000 units on an album, and that an album costs anywhere from 8 to 20 dollars, we can say that a rapper makes between 2.4 & 6 million dollars in album sales. The only problem is that rappers rarely make 100% of the money that an album costs. Artists have contracts with their labels. In these contracts, artists usually agree to give up a large percentage of their money for the record label, the distributor, the manufacturer, the retailer, and all studio/production costs. Because of this, many artists end up making less than a dollar for every copy of the album sold. Now let’s see how much this well respected, mainstream rapper makes from record sales: This artist sells 300,000 units and sells his album for 10 dollars apiece. His record deal gives him...
