How do you become a better writer? You write. There’s no shortcut. You write as much as possible – everyday is best. You write when you don’t feel like it and when do feel like it. Make friends with other writers so you can share your work and get feedback. Writing comes with practice like most things that are worth doing.
The ultimate goal, especially with a blog, is to write how you speak. That’s much easier said than done. You’ve got to write all the time to find your voice in the words. You can even try a speaking program like Dragon NaturallySpeaking Home that will actually type the words as you speak them. Some people prefer to write like this, but the end goal is to be able to write exactly how you speak whether you have a speak-to-write program or not.
Here’s how to become a better writer and actually get paid…
There’s something special about the morning hours and that’s why you’ll often find successful people taking advantage of those hours.
These routines are very different from each other, which goes to show that there’s no “right” answer on how you should conduct your morning ritual. There’s no one-size-fits-all answer, but you can get some ideas for your own ritual.
You’re not going to stick with a ritual you don’t like, so add the stuff you like and leave out the stuff you don’t like.
Also, these entrepreneurs are successful, but that doesn’t mean they have everything figured out. Simon Cowell hits the snooze button, which continues to be shown as having a negative affect on your energy. Again, just because some successful person does it, that doesn’t make it right, but we can learn from them both positively and negatively…

The money you earn by selling your current car could be a great down payment on your next car and this infographic is going to show you how to get the most value out the car you’re selling now…
I started to write a gigantic list of everywhere that offers a student discount and then I thought twice about it…
Why waste your time searching for companies that offer discounts when there is a better alternative?

More often than not, college students are constantly facing shortage of money even if they have managed to acquire a student loan. While the funding may appear to be enough when you get it at the beginning of the term, it is not long before you realize that you will need to seriously budget to last it throughout. This is the hard part; budgeting, to make sure that you do not run out of money before you receive your next funding. However, it is not so difficult that you would term it impossible. I would like to list down a couple of saving tips for you college students.
It may seem unrealistic to think about becoming a multi-millionaire before your 30th birthday, but think about all the people who did it. It’s not some crazy story about a guy working hard for 10 years on one project before it finally took off.
These are stories like David Karp, who started Tumbler and had close to 100,000 users within a couple weeks. He then sold it for a few million a year after he started the website, while he was still living at home with mommy. I think he could probably afford to move out after that.
