  • Essay writing was never my forte as English isn’t my first language but because I was good at math so they put me into Honors English. I really couldn’t be assed with reading King Lear and then writing a 5,000 word paper on it so I looked up essay services and HelpWriting.net was the first link to come up. I was kind of shocked with the quality of the paper they gave me. I received a very articulate and well-written piece of writing for like $20. Recommended it to a bunch of my foreign friends and now they use it too.

  9. 9. 4. Sample <ul><li>TOP SPORTS PEOPLE TODAY EARN TOO MUCH MONEY. DISCUSS </li></ul><ul><li>Top sports people today earn huge amounts of money and in the future they’ll probably earn much more. I don’t think there’s anything wrong with this at all. </li></ul><ul><li>Sport today is big business. As a result a lot of business people make a lot of money from it. In my opinion top sports people should be free to make a lot of money from sport as well. If they’re the best in their sport, they should therefore be paid a lot. Secondly, they can only play their sport for a short time. For this reason they should be able to earn as much as possible while they can, in order to carry on living comfortably after they stop. Top sports people can earn a lot from advertising and sponsorship too. </li></ul><ul><li>Consequently, I believe that it’s practically impossible to limit the money they receive. Also, as far as I’m concerned, they are entertainers. Top entertainers have always been paid extremely well, so it seems to me that top sports people should be paid well too, so as to reward them for the pleasure they give us. </li></ul><ul><li>In conclusion, I don’t think that top sports people earn too much money because they deserve it. It is also clear that we couldn’t stop them anyway. </li></ul>
