Well here we are. The beginning of a new website — or more specifically a blog. This part is always a little awkward, isn’t it? Well hopefully we can get past that quickly and I think I have an idea on how to do that. Let’s just dive right on into what we’re all about here.
I decided to start this blog to try and get some structure in my life. Get myself on a schedule and stick to it no matter what. I wanted something I could focus on that would be a net positive for me. I wanted to be disciplined and, to be honest, we could all use a little more discipline in our lives, couldn’t we? We could all do that little bit extra that could turn our day from good to great. Along with this blog, this is also why I recently started flipping again.
For those who may not be familiar with the term flipping (or flip), it’s a pretty basic concept; find/buy something and then sell it for more then you paid for it. This could be anything that you could imagine; video games, clothing, toys, glassware, antiques, electronics, purses, the list goes on. Everything has a price tag. The goal is to get anything below that tag and sell it for more. Over and over and over again. Flipping is something that anyone can do on the side to generate some side income. A side hustle so to speak. Whatever you want to call it at the end of the day you have extra money in your pocket.
What I think is so great about flipping is that it isn’t like other side hustles/money making opportunities. It doesn’t make you take calls or video classes. It doesn’t force you to make a large down payment to acquire product to sell. It also doesn’t make you alienate all of your friends as you try to sell them Himalayan health beads or whatever the new recent trend it. It’s something different. To me it’s like a treasure hunt. You go out there looking for hidden gems that you KNOW you can make money on. That feeling you get when you score something you know you can make hundreds of dollars off of is indescribable.
There are a lot of things that go into flipping. How do you find things to sell? How do you know what to look for? Okay I found something to sell, now what? Where do I sell it? How can I make sure I get the most money for what I bought? I will be going over all of this. Where to go. What to buy. How to sell things. I’ll be covering it all.
In this blog I am going to be sharing my thoughts, ideas, tricks, tips and trends in flipping. I’ll be sharing my experiences with all of you in the hope of inspiring some people to learn how to do this themselves. I hope to post several times a week detailing my progress and learning experiences throughout my flipping “career”. Remember, this is all about discipline. Staying on a schedule. Sticking to what I started.
And making lots of money along the way. Stay tuned.
