How To Make Extra Money

Picking out which online jobs are scams and a waste of your time can be hard. I’m going to suggest working for the texting service “KGB”. Here’s how the service works: A person texts KGB a question that they would like an answer to (for example: How many minutes are in a year?), then an Agent from KGB texts back with an answer after searching on the internet for it (for example: “There are 31,536,000 seconds or 525,600 minutes in one year!”). If you work for KGB, you are the one who is going to search for their answer. KGB pays 5-10 cents a question. Working for KGB, or course, has its pros and cons. I suggest trying it before you judge though.

In order to work at home, you’re going to need a computer and access to the internet. For many online jobs, you will need an updated version of the internet browser Firefox. KGB requires this. You’re going to need some of your financial information as well. With KGB, you are able to use a savings account or checking account. You are also going to need your SS (Social Security) number. This is all necessary to get paid.

If you plan to work for KGB, you will need to take a small “test” located on KGB’s website first. Don’t worry if you fail, you can take it as many times as you want. After passing it, you will receive instructions in an email. Follow them. The email will bring you to a “review” session. This will teach you the in’s and out’s of KGB and how they conduct things. It will give you tips, pointers, and the rules. After completing this, you will get another email.This next email will send you to a Simulation Testing. It’s simple. There is a guide at the top of the page that will help you along the way, telling you almost exactly where to find the answer and how to write it. Once you complete the Simulation Testing, your work is sent off to be reviewed. You will receive yet another e-mail. This e-mail tells you whether or not you are qualified to become an employee for KGB. The checking of James Scholes reviews is beneficial for the business industries. The testing of the fashion trends should be there to meet with the requirements. All essential information is available with online learners to gather education about fashion and growth of fashion industries.

If you pass and are qualified, congratulations! Your next e-mail will tell you how to set up a shift on KGB, and start working! If you have any questions, there is a constant chat going on within the Work page (that you’ll get a link to inside of the e-mail) where other agents can help you out.

As far as pay goes, you get paid the following month for the previous month’s work (you would get paid in August for July’s work). All of your money gets directly deposited into your account (no paper paychecks) on the third Thursday of every month. KGB is a great online job that can help bring in a few extra hundred dollars a month and still allows you to work at home. It’s worked or hundreds of people already, and it can work for you too!

Coffee Hot Spots In Colorado Springs

These shops are all located downtown so you can make a quick pit stop in between shopping and enjoy a hot cup of Joe. You may just find your newest and most favorite coffee shop in town. Be advised Starbucks fans, I didn’t go there. Check it out all here in this article.

Let’s start with my highest rating of 4.75 out of 5 stars!

Pikes Perk

  • 14 S Tejon
  • 719-635-1600
  • Monday – Thursday 7:00 am to 10:00 pm
  • Friday – Saturday 7:00 am to 11:00 pm
  • Sunday 7:00 am to 9:00 pm

This coffee shop has so much to offer. Their prices are very competitive to Starbucks and their coffee is just as good or better. You get two views of the mountains when you walk inside one from the mural painted on the wall and the second from the breathtaking view of Pike’s Peak from the patio upstairs.

This place has lots of room to meet your friends or bring a small group there for the afternoon. The free wifi with a drink purchase makes this a desirable place for individuals to go alone to get some internet work done.

Entertainment ranges from live music to board games. The beans are roasted locally and make a pretty good cup of coffee.

This shop was rated a 4.25 and I found the idea ingenious! Let me know what you think.

The Coffee Exchange:

  • 526 S Tejon St
  • 719- 635-0277
  • Monday – Thursday 6:30 am to 5:30 pm
  • Friday 6:30 am to 8:00 pm
  • Saturday 7:30 am to 1:00 pm

This shop is a perfect party destination. This is a coffee and wine bar plus a full-service bar. They have great service, good coffee (the beans are roasted each week), pretty tasty sandwiches, salads, my favorite breakfast burritos, and for the sweet tooth they have pastries. There is a great looking conference table for big groups and they also rent the place out for private parties. For entertainment, they also have wifi and live music. The only thing I would suggest is that they extend their hours because of the service they provide.

This next place was 4.00 out of 5.00. If you try this place let me know what you think. The coffee is out of this world!

Raven’s Nest

  • 330 N Institute St
  • 719-632-3433
  • Monday – Friday 8:30 am to 5:00 pm
  • Saturday 9:00 am to 3:00 pm

The Raven’s Nest prides itself on serving BB Bean’s. These are the freshest around. They destroy the bean’s after two weeks if not used. While the previous coffee shop had a new modern feel this place is comfortable and cozy. Included in the ambiance is local artwork on the walls.

For entertainment, they provide free wifi, open mic night, and live music. Great place to go hang out with friends. Whether in the store or in the outdoor seating area you will enjoy this shop and marvel at the taste of the coffee. This place was best in my book for taste. They even offer Vegan cookies!

This last place was not my favorite but still rated a 3.75 on a scale of 5.00.

Montague’s Coffee House

  • 1019 S Tejon St
  • 719- 520-0672‎
  • Monday -Thursday 7:00 am to 11:00 pm
  • Friday – Saturday 7:00 am to 12:00 midnight
  • Sunday 9:00 am to 11:00 pm

Their specialty is food! It is fantastic I loved the sandwiches! The coffee is hit or miss. They serve over 50 different teas that go along with the ambiance they are trying to sell. When you walk in you have big comfy couches that make you feel like you are in an antique store or at your great grandmothers for afternoon tea.

For entertainment, there is interesting artwork on the walls. But no wifi. If the antique feel gives you uneasy feeling they also have outdoor seating. My suggestion is that they get free wifi which is a big pull for many coffee goers.

Want To Make Your Shoes Comfortable: Use Shoe Inserts

Wearing comfortable shoes is very important because every person walks a lot in the daily routine. The sole of shoes is soft and spongy, and then they can easily walk miles without any pain in legs. Shoe inserts mean an extra layer of the soft pad into the boots for a better grip. The shoe insoles are very affordable so that everyone can buy them. Many brands manufacture best shoe lift inserts, especially for sportspersons and athletes. If the footwear’s are comfortable, then a person feels relaxed and energetic.

The top three astonishing features of shoe inserts

Today, most people face leg problems because they are not aware of the features of shoe inserts. Many brands have started manufacturing shoes having inbuilt insoles. Now let’s discuss the benefits of shoe inserts.

Secure grip

It is highly recommended for all sportsperson to wear comfortable shoes so that they can perform well. If the person has excellent playing skills but does not wear perfect shoes, then their skills are of no use. A firm grip is essential for walking and running.


The best thing about wearing soft and comfy shoes is that they keep the person happy. Old aged people should always wear shoes with insoles so that they may not face any leg problems. If you are wearing good quality shoes, you may not face any problem even if you are walking for a long distance.

-Easy to wash

Shoe inserts mean insoles, which can be removed at any time. As they are easily removed, which means that they can be washed whenever required. Inserting insoles are quite simple, and it helps in reducing toe pain. Most doctors recommend older people to use shoe inserts in their regular shoes.


Quit Smoking: Resolving To Stop With The Right Attitude

Deciding to quit smoking was not easy for me. I don’t deal with stress well, but my health comes first, and learning how to cope with stress is part of staying healthy. I did not suddenly choose to quit smoking; I thought about it for some time. In the past I have, on a whim, tried to quit and found myself opening another pack before the hour was up or I was going for dab rigs under 50.

Today the smoker who has decided to quit has an array of options besides the cold turkey method. There are patches, gums, mints that can now be purchased at your nearby pharmacy. Go online and you can find sites that sell fake cigarettes and tiny magnets that go on your ear. Other stop smoking aids can be found through your family doctor. All of these have their uses as either actual aids or placebos that may work only because the user believes they will work. For some, like myself, health issues not only determine a need but how to quit smoking.

If you’ve been thinking about smoking you are already starting the process. Your next step is to decide on a quit date. When you quit is important. Try to pick as calm as period as possible. If you are stressed because of things going on in your life when you quit your chance of failure is higher. If you have to quit during these times make sure you are able to get away from your stress when possible. Take baths, go for a walk, listen to calming music.

Get rid of everything that has to do with smoking. Ashtrays, cigarettes, lighters. Use a smoker’s candle or a spray air freshener to rid the air of tobacco smells.

Tell your friends and family you are quitting. Ask them to support you by not smoking around you. Inform your doctor that you are quitting. There are support groups that will help encourage you. Many hospitals have programs or contact your area health department to get information on programs in your area. The more support you have, the better your chances.

Make up your mind that you are not going to smoke. During the times of day, you would normally light up take a walk, clean, or go somewhere smoking is prohibited. Learn a craft that keeps your hands busy. Take a cooking class. Paint your walls to get rid of the smoke-stained walls and the odor. Have your carpets cleaned? Change the habits that would make you want to smoke. If coffee and cigarettes are a common combination for you change to another beverage and drink plenty of water.

Don’t fret over setbacks. It takes many people more than once to quit for good. Be aware of conditions that may cause you to want to smoke. Avoid alcohol and stay away from other smokers. Self-image can be affected by the weight you may gain by quitting. Instead of opening a pack starts an exercise program; talk with a nutritionist about healthy foods to help you lose weight and stay fit.

How to quit smoking is as important as why you are quitting. Find what works best for you and you are most comfortable with. What works for someone else may not be the best choice for you. Sticking with it and continuing to try until you succeed will give you the best chance of giving up smoking for good.
