I used to think, to put out content, you had to be an expert. You had to be the best in your field. The best musician, the best audio engineer, the best designer, the best football player. However, since this time, I changed my mind.
You may or may not know that I challenged myself to make $20,170 dollars along with a few fine folks in Gary Vaynerchuk's community from flipping old things found in my own possession or really anywhere I can find them (Ebay, Thrift stores, yard sales, flea markets, Craigslist, Let Go, Varagesale, Offerup, the list goes on..) - The whole idea is that in the time I would usually be watching Netflix, I'm putting stuff on eBay, hitting up yard-sales, then in turn using that money to save for things I care about. All the while I would have just been on my duff.
I wanted to do a quick profit/flip recap for you all (and my self). Here's the breakdown:
Apple Watch: paid $50 upfront, sold watch for $140, 1 band for $10 and whole bunch more bands for $30. Local sale.
Cookie Monster TMX: paid $1.99, sold for $12.99 on eBay
Nerf Gun with Clip: paid $1.99, sold for $17.99 on eBay
Sharper Image Dart gun: Found for free - had a gift reciept on box, recieved a $21.50 Walgreens giftcard - booyah!
Apple Macbook Pro: Paid $190, sold for $360. Local sale.
I have about 15 items up for sale right now including a few big ticket items (like my 1986 Toyota Tercel) that will hopefully give me a boost to my $20,170 goal.
Lesson of the day: Make all your money upfront folks.
Dents baby, DENTS.
