11 Ways Advertisers Make Food Look Delicious

Advertised foods rarely look exactly like the real food theyíre selling. In fact, a number of sites around the web have pointed out just how false food advertising can be.

5 Destructive Beliefs Almost Everyone Has

Have you ever seen a friend or a loved one completely sabotage their success? Of course, we all have. As a friend, we're there on the sidelines trying to help them but they are so blind to their surroundings and so set in their ways that they are like a run away train that nothing can slow down. Thatís often a negative belief at work. If you donít believe you deserve to earn over $50,000 a year, you probably wonít. You will turn down opportunities because they seem too good to be true, and you will miss lucky breaks because you arenít expecting them. Heck, you aren't even looking for them. This doesnít mean you are stuck there for the rest of your life. Life is fluid and things change, but that change must begin with you.

13 Best Haunted Houses In America

Running a haunted house used to be one of the worst ways to scare up an income, but a lot has changed in the last decade. "Ten years ago, very few people gave up a job with health insurance in order to run a haunted house year-round," Larry Kirchner, editor HauntWorld, a website dedicated to the haunted attraction industry, told The Huffington Post. Kirchner, who has been following the professional haunted house industry since 1996, said that what once was a seasonal business now has year-round potential. "When I started out, basically haunted houses in a given area were competing with local businesses," he said. "Now, thanks to YouTube and Travel Channel, the competition to be the best has gone national." HauntWorld has compiled a list of what it proclaims to be the 13 best haunted houses in the country. Kirchner thinks the people behind the houses could find work in other fields if the haunted house business dries up. "The people who run these houses could easily be working in Hollywood doing movies," he said. "That's the type of dedication this takes."
