Content Production

The worldwide ‘wow’ we’ve labeled as the internet will never run out of cantankerous, factual, edgy, or racy content.  Our internet, however, will run out of people interested in writing this content; since we’ve already proven that freelancing debunks cubicle myths and allows normally secluded office bangers to expand opportunities, expect the flood gates to open wide for the savvy freelance writer or renegade author to begin providing mass amounts of content. This has already been proven inexorably true, especially since the startup costs are ridiculously low, the overhead is nearly non-existent, and ROI would be ridiculous to measure.

Not just the businesses, but individuals need to have loan at certain times of their life as well. In 2012, there has been a 19% increase in individual and business lending. According to research conducted worldwide, financial borrowings by the private and public sector will definitely be on the upswing for 2013 as well.
