Initial investment: $5,000 Expected earnings: $2,500 to $7,500 per month Becoming a personal trainer is a good way to help people reach their fitness goals. You won’t find a hard and fast rule regarding what kind of certification you should get or even if you need any. That said, it’s generally recognized as a best practice to obtain some sort of certification to start working with clients in a gym. Fitness training certification can come in as low as $400 and go up to a few thousand dollars. In addition to certification, you’ll need to pay for a website — or use a free Instagram account. Many personal trainers provide coaching services online and sell customized exercise and eating plans for additional revenue. A person should budget $700 to $2,000 for initial certifications, $600 for a web presence and another $1,600 for liability insurance each year, said John Romanelli, physical trainer […]

13 Prison Slang Terms You Should Use With Co-Workers

You thought prison slang was reserved for hardened convicts and characters of ‘Orange is the New Black’? February 15, 2019 6 min read Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own.

The ‘Fortnite’ Dance Lawsuits Are Close to Falling Apart

Documents suggest that Alfonso Ribeiro can’t copyright his signature move, the ‘Carlton Dance.’ February 15, 2019 3 min read This story originally appeared on Engadget Epic Games has found itself slapped with a flurry of lawsuits, all alleging the company of stealing people’s dance moves and selling them on for a profit. These dances are incorporated into its world-conquering game Fortnite, which are bought by players for a quantity of in-game currency (costing real money). That’s angered a number of musicians and viral video stars, who feel that they’ve been ripped off, but in one high-profile case, the law might be on Epic’s side. Alfonso Ribeiro, star of early ’90s sitcom The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, was one of the plaintiffs arguing for a slice of Epic’s cash. Ribeiro claimed to be the creator of the “Carlton Dance,” a goofy routine that Epic sold as a Fortnite emote — unsubtly named “Fresh” — inside the game. Sadly, documents uncovered […]

February 15, 2019 6 min read Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own. You just walked in the door from an exhausting day at work. You’re hungry and spent, just wanting to catch your breath for a minute. You grab something to eat and then veg out in front of the TV.

A Jeff Bezos Letter From 1997 About ‘Reversible Decisions’ Sheds Some Light on the Shock Amazon HQ2 U-Turn

Bezos said that big companies have a tendency to think all big decisions are irreversible. February 15, 2019 3 min read This story originally appeared on Business Insider This week Amazon made the shock announcement that it was abandoning its plan to move half of its new HQ2 campus to Queens, Long Island City in New York. The decision came after hefty political opposition to the plans from politicians such as Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Sen. Michael Gianaris, who represents Long Island City. The political opponents of New York’s HQ2 celebrated the news, and Sen. Bernie Sanders congratulated the city on “standing up” to Amazon.

Some have described Amazon’s sudden change of heart as the multi-billion dollar company throwing its toys out of the pram. Sen. Elizabeth Warren tweeted that Amazon had walked away, “all because some […]
