    HOT TOPIC Reddit r/WSB bankrupts Hedge Fund using Robinhood

    Never in a million years would I meet someone else on this forum to quote such a small phase that happened during Runescape almost 10 years ago.

    EXECUTION 5 Figures & <10 Hours a Month in 6 Months

    2021 Update I'm 5 months deep into carpet cleaning. I definitely entered in the slow part of the carpet cleaning season. Luckily, I'm still selling textbooks so that's covered me on the slow months. Slowly, but surely, everything is falling into place. December's goal was definitely not met...

    EXECUTION 5 Figures & <10 Hours a Month in 6 Months

    Another yearly progress. I've decided that reselling isn't going to be my road to wealth. I'm still going to be sourcing inventory online, but only on my own time. With all these rules Amazon is putting on resellers, I figured it's a matter of time before something happens to my account. I'm...

    GOLD! Making Money For Dummies (And In a Crowded Market)

    You've inspired me to take the leap into carpet cleaning. After being in reselling books for awhile, I've concluded that I need to build something more local. Getting my loan next week and I've been doing a lot of on-off research the past few years, but really put some heavy research the past...

    1 year progress. Haven't given up yet. My life is divulging into two different roads: This resale business and the chance of taking over my uncle's accounting part of a family construction business. I'm currently doing bookkeeping and am learning different aspects of the job. This has much more...

    Mini update: I was able to give the pricing and grading tasks to my roommate and friend, whom I now pay every time I come in with new inventory. My roommate also checks in and packs the inventory without me having to supervise. Wow, just like that, I've made more strides in outsourcing than I...

    A while. This business is a stepping stone from where I want to be (6 figures per year passive income while solving millions of problems). But I know I can catapult myself forward even more this year than previous years.

    EXECUTION 5 Figures & <10 Hours a Month in 6 Months

    Reading my progress is making me proud but also cringe, just because it looks like I took three steps forward and a hundred steps back. Son of a bitch, I didn't succeed in what I wanted to do. No excuses (And I hope I'm not saying that as an excuse). But I'm still going, and I'm still shooting...

    BOOK REVIEW Can't Hurt Me: by David Goggins, Review and Discussion

    My rating :star::star::star::star::xx: Format: Audible My thoughts/review: This book has a lot of ups and downs. While there's a lot of borderline masochistic behavior that I certainly don't agree with, I appreciated the journey altogether. A slew of examples of David overcoming his demons...

    Small update: Two weeks ago I got sick for a week. Since I got sick, I couldn't list or source inventory. I had no motivation or energy to work. Business halted. Luckily the inventory at Amazon's warehouses was still selling, but having a halt on business activities because I was sick wasn't...

    I think it's the idea of giving away that process to somebody else that freaks many entrepreneurs in general. It's like letting your kid go to college: You want to protect them until the end, but you know they have to find their own way. Outsourcing has a similar feel, letting someone else do...

    August 2018 Monthly Update Another month bites the dust. A little bit more progress has been made. Revenue has TRIPLED, and almost QUADRUPLED from last year after getting a July batch of inventory done. Activity 1# Grading and cleaning inventory I continue to improve this activity little by...

    So sales have been rolling in the past month. Just wasn't enough at the time because I've been procrastinating on sourcing. In this business no sourcing = no money, and that one fell on me. Recently however I'm managing to do enough to hire people for the very part-time work (15 hours every two...

    EXECUTION 5 Figures & <10 Hours a Month in 6 Months

    Late AF but I'm back. Not much has happened in terms of meeting these goals. I've been struggling with too many damn excuses. Falling back on work and not gaining enough capital to outsource these activities has set me back a lot. But I'll give a brief update anyways. Staying accountable for my...

    GOLD! Have you had your "FTE"? (Or Was it an FTM?!)

    Thanks MJ. Believe it or not, your encouraging words have made my work a lot easier these past 21 days. I have your reply posted on my desktop background to serve as a reminder to bring me back to those hot days in the sun, and that I'd rather not do that again unless it's for the sake of growth...
