How to make $50000 between now and January 2013: The Challenge.gov challenge
Life is about making impact; it’s about making changes in a changing world. Being a change agent takes lots of determination. Sometimes it requires sacrificing our time in order to make our world a better place. In other times it requires suffering disdain and mockery all in order to achieve life goals. Making this impact can both be negative and positive. So what then is your inherent desire? Is it to make our world a better place or to place your name in the sands of time in the mould of Al Capone?
This is something you and I need to think about. I ask this question because I wonder the extent of man’s inhumanity to man-all in the devilish quest to acquire money to the detriment of others comfort.
It is in the light of this I desire to ask this pertinent question
Are you someone who is passionate about saving people from time management crisis? Are you someone who has programming skills or know someone who has? THEN partnering with him or her could fetch you a cool $50000
How do I earn This Money?
The FTC in the United States has proposed a challenge where innovators can create solutions that will stop illegal robocalls in the USA. If you are wondering what robocalls, it simply means calls by robots. These calls aim at selling a particular thing to the recipients. The calls are annoying to recipients so that FTC was forced into looking at ways to block these calls as it has led to enormous resources being put into use to track culprits.
According to FTC the created solution should have the ability to block calls, both on the mobile and landline platform. The intended solution should have the ability to work on diverse platforms.
