It costs me time to fill out a form, and 50 bucks a year. As to how I know this is an online ordination. I just do. ETA: As far as ministers that do what I mentioned, I can take you to yearly conferences and point out 40,000 ministers and their families that do this and much more day after day. What do you think those ministers do when they're not preaching at you? At least the good ones. Well, I don't have my own congregation in real life, and my ordination was an online ordination. I've also been ordained for nearly 10 years now, and I minister to the homebound mainly. I also do a lot of work at soup kitchens and I do a ton of work with those that are suffering with or trying to defeat addiction. I regularly perform weddings and have unfortunately taken care of quite a few funerals as well. So yeah, I do quite a bit more than just fill out my form to maintain my ordination. While I understand your skepticism, especially online -- I'm not looking towards ministering online as a "business", I just figured it was one thing I could do in this world with skills I already have that could be of use to other people. I actually followed a lot of the advice in this thread. I interviewed for a position as a land agent last night and I think I will have the job by this afternoon... that will enable me to save up enough to get land to not only setup a small ministry in an effort to help others -- but also to perhaps pursue other business ventures as well. The original post was just me being jaded because after around 7-8 years here (I had another previous account that lapsed and was never revived) it just seemed to me that there wasn't anything I could really do that was worthwhile without having graphical design skills, and I have absolutely NO desire to be involved with the club scene whatsoever... except if maybe as an advisor or consultant as I know everything that goes into running them successfully. As to the person that said "not being good" = "not practiced enough" in regards to graphical design -- you are absolutely right, but I also don't have any ideas for things to create, either. It is hard to practice when you have no plan in the first place. I do try, but it is hard as a very unskilled person without that plan. If I had ideas of things to try, I'd probably be much more practiced! Regardless if posts were met with skepticism or helpful advice, I do appreciate all of your replies and will take them all to heart. Also, if you welcomed me to contact you in world, please be on the lookout for my request. I was more looking for conversation on this topic than anything else, and was pleasantly surprised to see so many responses upon logging in. Thank you all so much, and I wish you all a great day!
  2. Well, I'd hardly say my "house is not in order" because I'm not very good with Photoshop and because the Linden's now have some weird policies regarding L$. Never had any issues in the past. It doesn't take much to reach out your hand to a person who needs it.
  3. I guess my problem is not wanting to "work" but wanting to do my own venture. I mean, that is part of the fun. I guess I'm going to have to look up some of those classes you mentioned, if they are free. I do have the desire to learn how to do all the graphical stuff that would allow me to create (PhotoShop and Blender) to where I'd actually be competitive in some market... I do have two accounts so I could use one in more "traditional" businesses and use my "main" account to start my spiritual center. I guess part of the problem is that most of the jobs seem to be in unsavory places that I have no desire to work in, or they aren't steady work or worth the time for what you get paid. I guess that is what I'm really getting at... that you must have real world talent to become any sort of content creator, and it kills a lot of the fun for me nowadays. I'm just babbling at this point... I've just been here a very hard time and its so hard to admit that I still really have no worthwhile skills in this place...
  4. Well, I was actually looking in to starting up an online ministry, but with their payment processor changes, my non-verified Paypal is now essentially worthless. I do have some base skills in Photoshop to do basic photo editing and the like, but as far as creation goes, even if I have something I'd like to build or the like -- its already been done. At the same time, I don't want to "work for" someone else. In reply to one of the posters, yes I am a fully ordained minister, so I could do that, but again, it costs to get started. I would love to start up a spiritual center to offer spiritual aid to shut-ins and just those looking for online spiritual "services" and of course I understand that weddings and the like are very popular here, but I'm not a skilled builder to offer any type of beautiful surroundings or the like. I don't even know if this was the right forum to post in, but regardless, I thank you both for your replies. I am just jaded, I guess... and I don't really know where to start anymore with this world. I do have PhotoShop, GIMP, Blender, and I even have Maya from my wife. Interested in photography (I own PhotoLife studio for instance), clothing, building, etc, etc. All the tutorials released lately are generally outdated or use old tools. I was working on trying to do some clothing the other day in PhotoShop and someone I told about it essentially laughed at me that I was working with prims instead of mesh, essentially. TL;DR: I *want* to stay in this world and try to make a difference in some way... but at this point I don't have "non-internet" money to contribute into the game and my PayPal won't work here. So essentially I *must* create. Not that I want to work in the clubs anyway, but no one is going to hire a Reverend to host at their club...
  5. I'm still so interested in this world, even after all of these years... however, I've found one thing that is incredibly disheartening. There is really no way to get ahead in business here without a lot of talent. I'm a people person, but we all know clubs are just time/money sinks. I've got 3D Modeling programs, but I wasn't any good with them in college and I'm not any good with them now. I'm not a Photoshop wizard. I don't know LSL. I've been here over six years, and I'm completely lost. I'm actually starting to combine aspects of my RL (I'm an ordained minister) to try something new just because I'm out of ideas for trying to stay on the grid. :( I don't know if I'm just extremely jaded or what, but I never liked clubs in this world anyway, and definitely not working in them. If that is really all that is going to be out there for someone without a degree in graphics design... this might be it for me in SL. :(
  6. I have just recently opened a very stable gaming sim known as Naughty Angels Gaming, with my partner Nyissah Freese. We are looking for as many different capable Greed or No Greed Hosts as we can find, and hope to find a dedicated manager who loves the game to help us really get our VIP group up and our games hopping. Looking for all time zones, we'd love to run 24/7 if possible! We do have Zyngo, Solitaire, and Jaded Kickers as well, so experience or at least knowledge with these games is much preferred. Compensation will be per card, and 100% of your tips are yours to keep. Managerial compensation is negotiable, but we're looking for someone who is looking long-haul and not short-term. Please respond here or send me a NC (Jazen Jaxxon) in-world. Regards, Jazen (CEO - Naughty Angels Gaming)
  7. Naughty Angels Gaming is approaching its grand opening and we are looking for gameroom hostesses to work on an adult-themed gaming sim. Hostesses should be fun, energetic, and relatively dedicated, and also know about TOS-compliant games such as Greed or No Greed, and Zyngo... we also have chess, euchre, and una boards and are adding more fun stuff daily. Compensation is negotiable, but bonuses will be offered to hostesses who consistently produce results. Our sim is on adult land, so you must be age-verified, and you must also have a working and quality sounding microphone to apply for these positions. We are looking for hostesses for all times of the day or night. Please NC Jazen Jaxxon for more information, or IM in-world. My usual hours are 8PMSL-3AMSL but I will be on most of the day today for immediate interviews.
  8. I've done a lot of basic SL jobs, like hosting, dancing, DJing, some customer service, etc... I'm looking for something a bit more rewarding, and hopefully intellectual, than gesturbating for people to join contest boards... like to get involved in some real things. I thought of opening a chess club, but don't know really if it would be any kind of success. My problem is I have some great ideas at times, but this place is so open, I feel like I need a goal and a task. I'm an excellent writer, speaker, thinker - and when I am doing something I give it 100%. If you've got some kind of opening or project for me, please contact me here or in-world. I do have a RL job, but am available pretty much every evening after 7-8PM SLT with 2-3 days off per week. Hope to hear from you! Regards, Jazen
  9. Am willing to work with someone and cut them in just to have more land to expand into, as well... the business is already in place and ready to rock of my own expense, but more land would be helpful as this business is already paced for growth. I have many well-traited horses already and the horses in place to go for some of the bigger names.

But the mods don't care, so have at it. Because I'm not selling anything? I mean, I guess you could call it self-promotion, but I didn't even name my business... Strictly trying to make contacts...

  12. How much are stalls/prim counts? Are the rentals going to the charity or strictly the donated horses. Finally, are we providing our own food or will it be provided with stall rental. Kind Regards, Jazen Jaxxon (Jaxxon Stables)
  13. Looking for partners in my breeding business, currently breeding Amaretto horses and preparing for Meeroo's. Would like to expand and get bigger and be able to do more - but am currently on my own. Please contact me, Jazen Jaxxon, in world if you would like to talk about pooling resources as a partner or an independent investor. No reasonable ideas will be turned down, and in the case of investors, any reasonable investment offer will be greeted with a smile by a smart businessman. Currently have one stable, and about to open another one - and I never plan on stopping with my expansion in this great and fun business. Hope to have you along either as a partner, an idea contributor, or an investor. Kind Regards, Jazen Jaxxon (Jaxxon Stables)
  14. Update... I've started creating clothes... having trouble getting the seams together a bit, but it's a tough creation. I made a Michael Jordan autographed NBA Finals jersey. Also took a 3 store very nice prefab, and made it into a very nice looking and quaint 9 store mall. Discovering I can do things both with building and photoshop, and loving the creative life so far. I'm not getting much sleep, but I'm having a lot of fun. Each of my 9 stores has 30 prim available at 75L a week, I think that seems fair, and if I could keep 100% rental, I would essentially be freerolling Second Life. Thanks to everyone for the great posts and encouragement!
