I keep trying to explain to Z that if she wants to live free in today’s society she needs only one thing: money. Sad but true. She keeps insisting in return that she’s too young to earn her own money. Enter Aaron Kindley, the genius behind MakeMeLookHot.com. Consumers simply submit their photographs to the site along with a $7 fee, Aaron uses Photoshop to touch them up then returns the pictures with the people in it looking oh so much better.

Why don’t they just take another picture? Aaron didn’t understand it. They decided that people often have a picture of themselves that they like for some reasons and not for others. What if we had a service to fix a few small problems

A few months later, MakeMeLookHot.com was born. People liked it right away. They could get their picture fixed in one day or in three days and it didn’t cost much. At just $7, why bother shooting a new photo? Just fix the one you almost like and post it.
Just goes to show that, when it comes to freedom, where there’s a will there is always a way…
