Sitter’s Studio, Finally Recognizing That Aspiring Artists Can Make An Economic & Creative Contributionby Beth Graddon-Hodgson
It's often you hear about waitresses who are really aspiring actresses; or bartenders who are really singers in disguise. Usually, these job descriptions are met with sarcasm since everyone in these professions in Los Angeles or New York only work to pay the bills until they come into their true calling. However, a new business based in New York actually recognizes their employees for their artistic talents, which become the main driving force behind their business concept.
Last week, I introduced you to Do Good for Debt, an organization that partners individuals with student loans leftover from their educational pursuits with charities that are willing to pay off students' debts in exchange for good deeds. While that may be a helpful way for former students to get back on their feet and start their lives without the burden of financial restraint, there's no denying that it takes away from the philanthropist attitude; so today I will outline another business that helps students overcome the financial repercussions of pursuing a post-secondary education. Gradefund offers a sponsorship-style system, that rewards students for their good grades, that way the better they do, the more corporate sponsors they'll have behind them to pay off their debts before they even have a chance to accumulate.
Most students who complete a post-secondary education find themselves overburdened by the abundance of student loans they were forced to take out to finance their educations. As a result, they find themselves struggling to pay their bills as they try to start building their careers, which leaves little time or money to do anything else; finding the time to contribute to charity just is not a reasonable possibility. To make both things possible, Do Good for Debt was created to allow those with looming student loans to trade their debts for charity work.
Sometimes tourists complain that sight seeing tours are too slow paced; often due to the size of the group, people on group tours find they just can't take in all the historical sights and attractions they'd like to see during that vacation. A new company, Sight Jogging, took the slow-paced tourism complaints literally, and offered their own unique form of historical sight seeing action with jogging tours.
