6 Strange Ways to Make Money Online

Who needs a part-time job when you can get paid for seeking out smut, selling your hair, or sending text messages?

Being an Online Life Coach

Move over, Tony Robbins: The online life coach has arrived.

Despite its "social media expert"-reminiscent name, the job of online life coach is actually a real paying position -- and one that has some pretty appealing perks, too.

"There's no demand on hours or time zones," says Sara Hecht, director of operations for "You coach clients according to your schedule and your preferences, and you're very free to create your own structure within the program."

The program could be anything from weight loss to business development. There are also slightly more saucy subjects -- things like love, sex, and online dating success.

Getting a gig as an online life coach isn't necessarily easy. Most of the reputable sites require some type of relevant training in your area of expertise; some, including, offer their own in-site training programs if you need a helping hand.

Would you expect anything less from a bunch of professional coaches?

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
