THIS is How To Pay for College

Posted by admin on Apr 14, 2014 9:12:57 AM

By Guest Blogger Jack Ross
Co-Founder, PickupGuitarClub.com
Like many, Jack Ross, a high school student from Washington D.C., falls in financial aid no man’s land. With most colleges topping $45,000 a year, his chance of leaving school in four years without a crippling amount of debt is bleak. Despite his near perfect test scores and GPA, scholarships are few and far between. So, he decided to fund his own schooling by teaching others.
Jack and his best friend, Brian Abod, recently launched a Kickstarter crowdfunding effort for their music education website PickupGuitarClub.com.
Jack is a self-taught software developer who built his first tablet computer at age 12, and Brian is a self-taught multi-instrumentalist. Together they developed a learning environment that is the first of its kind.
Centered on gamification and popular songs, their website turns learning guitar into an enjoyable experience. Jack developed polyphonic note-recognition software that listens to the guitar as it is played, rewarding players’ improvement and demonstrating how to improve where needed. The intuitive user interface breaks down every part of guitar from notes and rhythm to technique and chord shapes, making it easier than ever to follow along.
Brian taught himself guitar through songs and designed the curriculum in the same way. Songs like Sweet Home Alabama, Wagon Wheel, and Hey There Delilah teach all the skills needed to play guitar - picking, fretting, scales, chords, and more.
It is like Guitar Hero for real guitar.
With the funding from Kickstarter, they will finish the development and launch their company. Profits from the company will go towards funding their college education.
Here is their video describing their project:

A few words from DollarDays:
Jack Ross contacted Marc Joseph, CEO of DollarDays.com about an article Marc wrote last October for the Huffington Post, titled "It's Too Expensive to go to College Anymore." Jack asked us to take a look at his story to see if we would publish it, since Marc and Jack are basically coming from the same place about getting an education today: it's hard to get money to pay for college.
DollarDays hopes you'll take a look at their project and possibly donate a buck or two. We think these two young men are rising stars to watch!

March 29th was National Mom & Pop Business Owners Day!

Posted by admin on Apr 2, 2014 9:03:58 AM

National Mom and Pop Business Owners Day celebrates small business owners, much like the business owners DollarDays serves every day. These individuals spend countless hours nurturing and growing their young enterprises. The workload demands coupled with the lack of a hired staff, often translate into late hours and long days. There are missed family and personal events, but they love what they do because they are their own bosses.
