10 REAL benefits to upgrade to Student Level Belew 12 6 monthsRev (5263): @jmolan I think Bill still has to approve signups manually as the payment processor doesn't link into the Classroom.

​10​ REAL​ benefits to upgrade to Teacher Belew 13 9 monthsSusanDay (1879): @Belew One of the greatest rewards I get from my students is seeing them grow and learn. For each individual it is different, but it is always delightful to see happen. I find inspiration in teaching, and I always learn from my students. You can't rate that or put a dollar value on it. If you could, I'd be rich!

How do you avoid creep with clients? Belew 11 2 hoursgspieler (328): My husband had a bathroom remodeling business and "Scope creep" was standard.

How Long Have You Been Online? Belew 32 9 daysRev (5263): @morrnel Would that be a P DP-11 UNIX box? We had those at Motorola where I got my first access to ARPAnet. Nope. Only shopped there maybe 3 times in 18 years. Once Walmart opened their super store, Target basically became irrelevant. Took them a while to realize it, though. These days Amazon Prime and Prime Pantry are my friends.

Is there ever too much business? Belew 4 13 daysSteve (3595): Thoughts... 80 percent of your profit comes from 20 percent of your customers... So if you are getting lots of business from this 20 percent group, then no you cannot have enough... but if you are taking on new clients that don't give you this profitability then you perhaps can have to many, especially if it stops you going for these profitable clients.
Great Post - Evolution of WordPress UI '3-17 Belew 7 17 daysDansCartoons (286): Paul: Thank you for verifying this.

Auto-Correct, Typos, Lazy Typing Rev 13 1 monthtienny (634): Personally, I prefer write with hands. I receive 💯 for my spelling. There is a good, bad and good side of autocorrect. Good: 1.

More mistakes come out compared to write on paper 4. Some people get lazy
