Ever wonder where America’s obsession with credit cards started? It was with ads like this. They gave the impression that you could live a lavish lifestyle if you had one in your possession. They make no indication of the fact that you have to pay the balance back, and that you’ll be charged exorbitant amounts of interest along the way.

Doctor and dentist offices aren’t just medical providers - they’re businesses, too.

Many of them will recommend procedures that are certainly beneficial, but not totally necessary.  After all, they’re there to make a living. 

For example, I recently went to the dentist for a simple cleaning and experienced this.  Before the cleaning they had me complete a health questionnaire.  I checked off that I sometimes clinch my teeth when concentrating, and I’ve been known to snore at night (allegedly).  The hygienist spent the entire cleaning complimenting me on the health of my teeth and gums, but when the dentist came in, the mood changed.  Suddenly, I was in desperate need of a custom night guard, a sleep study, and some sort of laser gum treatment.  My reaction:

They even took me to another office with a “closer” to make my next appointment and order the sleep study.  It was like being at a used car dealership.  Seeing as though the hygienist had glowing reviews for my chompers, I decided to forego the $500 of extra treatments.

So remember, you’re the one that’s ultimately in charge of your health and your bank account.  Don’t get talked into an expensive procedure without taking the time to decide if it’s absolutely necessary.

How Can I Make Money Online?
I get this question a lot.  No, seriously, A LOT.  It seems everyone is interested in making a quick buck online.  I’ve always been hesitant to recommend anything, mostly because “make money online” sites are usually scams.
However, since so many are interested, I thought I would try to find something legitimate where everyone could make a few bucks.  After a lot of trial and error, I finally settled on slicethepie.
Here’s the scoop on this one: you listen to a song, write a review, and get paid a little each time.  The more detailed and more grammatically correct your reviews, the more you earn.  Once you earn $10, you can transfer it to your PayPal account and spend it on whatever your heart desires.
A good test for any online site that claims to pay you for something is to put yourself in their shoes and figure out what’s in it for them.  If you can’t answer that, it’s a scam.  With slicethepie, you’re providing your opinion, and that information will be compiled to find out what people in your demographic like to listen to.  Record companies really want this information.  Unsigned artists really want feedback on their songs.  Thus, you can earn money giving it to them.
So, there you have it.  The first ever M.I.N.I. approved “make money online” site.  I never thought it would happen.
So, will this make you rich?  Not even close.  But, it’s a way to get paid for doing something you already like to do—listen to new music.
Let me know how it goes for you.
UPDATE: This also works from an iPhone, Android, etc.
