    MARKETPLACE Mosquito Netting Ecommerce Store for Sale - $29k profit/year (2.3x valuation including inventory)

    No. I had zero DIY knowledge when I started the business and the base day-to-day work requires zero DIY work. It does require order fulfillment work (cutting the netting to order) but this work could be done by someone with zero prior experience. The ability/capability to sew would be a bonus...

    MARKETPLACE Mosquito Netting Ecommerce Store for Sale - $29k profit/year (2.3x valuation including inventory)

    It would be really hard to mess up. The only way you could mess up is either deleting the site on accident or not ordering inventory. Not responding to emails or phone calls at all would probably knock out 25% of sales. I actually already have inventory ready to send into Amazon and listings...

    MARKETPLACE Mosquito Netting Ecommerce Store for Sale - $29k profit/year (2.3x valuation including inventory)

    I got another PM of general questions, so I will go ahead and answer them here: 1. Does the purchase price include inventory? Yes, the purchase price includes enough inventory to last through summer or about 8 months from January 1. Of the 5 primary-selling products, 4 are well-stocked. One...

    MARKETPLACE Mosquito Netting Ecommerce Store for Sale - $29k profit/year (2.3x valuation including inventory)

    Thanks for the questions, AgainstAllOdds. "What growth opportunities do you see for a potential buyer?" FBA Amazon is the biggest available growth opportunity. Obviously, Amazon is not necessary for the success and stability of the business, but if you really wanted to grow it by 2x or more...

    MARKETPLACE Mosquito Netting Ecommerce Store for Sale - $29k profit/year (2.3x valuation including inventory)

    Thanks, MJ, I appreciate it. If not for your book and this forum, I would have never had the inspiration to start this business in the first place. You have probably helped indirectly create more businesses than most university MBA programs (including this one) and I look forward to again...

    MARKETPLACE Forum Self-Promotion Opp: Offers, Links, Your Biz, More (December 2019)

    Patio mosquito netting, primarily. However, customers use it for all sorts of purposes from laundromat filtering to pool covers to butterfly and bat enclosures

    MARKETPLACE Mosquito Netting Ecommerce Store for Sale - $29k profit/year (2.3x valuation including inventory)

    I am selling my ecommerce Shopify business for $77,950. This is a 2.3x valuation ($66,900) of the company plus ~$19000 of inventory valued at a discounted amount of $11,050. I am going to be very transparent about this business, so ask any questions you want. If it doesn't sell by January...

    EXECUTION Built 100k business in 5 months. Now stuck.

    That sounds really wonderful. Do you plan to stay in AZ/CO and just move between states with the weather for a while or are you thinking about going to other states? Today, I told my boss that I like being in a long-term relationship with my girlfriend (4 years), but sometimes I wish I could...

    EXECUTION Built 100k business in 5 months. Now stuck.

    Really interesting thread. I'm actually considering doing some stints cross-country in a van with my own dog next year for 3-6 months, so I am definitely interested to learn more about the ups and downs of life on the road. Were you able to resolve the (possible) issue with your VA yesterday?

    Flipping art.

    I had a "business" like this. It was called DecouvArt (from the French word, decouvert, which means discovered). I bought paintings, watercolors, and drawings at auctions and thrift stores, listed them on Facebook, and sold them through Facebook and Craigslist. My goal from the beginning was...

    eCommerce Store Hacked???

    I will research how to set up the VPN and get that done this week. Thanks for the info. I will add the base package of Sucuri just for added security. I have never had any security issues in six years of running the site, but now that I’m actually trying to scale the store, I need to take...

    eCommerce Store Hacked???

    Thanks, @theag for the insight based on your experience. $305 +rep for your help. I will get in touch with Sucuri today and get this issue resolved. Were you able to determine how the malware got on your site? I currently log in to the site using only three devices: my home computer, my...

    eCommerce Store Hacked???

    UPDATE I just created a customer account on the store to see what automated email I would get and the email I received is the correct email as designed by me and there is no spam link in the email. So someone is creating customer accounts on the front page of my store (nothing indicates to me...

    eCommerce Store Hacked???

    EDIT: Apologies for alarmist thread title; initially thought that my site was hacked but it does not actually appear to be compromised. TL;DR Problem: Someone has created 1300 customer accounts on my store using Russian email addresses and the automated customer registration thank you emails...

    Uni student looking for side gigs

    Are you in a position that tutoring other students on campus could be an option? If you’re already a junior, I imagine there are some lower-level classes related to mechanical engineering, math, or fundamental sciences in which you could tutor lower-year students? I wrote and proofread other...

    Fastlane Methods to get Money Now?

    My first business “failed” after six months. It was an ecommerce business selling stuff for raves (light gloves, clothes, micro lights, etc). I realized I was selling products no one actually needed to a market that couldn’t really afford them (15-25 year old ravers). I sold the business for a...

    Desperate Tech Entrepreneur Needs Advice

    While being wary of the sunk cost fallacy, it doesn’t seem to me that you are so powerless. However, based on the past actions of the university regarding the SUP, I’m not sure if they would be trustworthy if you approached them. It’s a judgment call you’d have to make based on their current...
