Is Gazelle the King of Yard Sale Selling? [VIDEO]
At the age of 32, I still find ways of surprising myself.
When it comes to random projects and life skills, I've become a "jack of all trades." Throughout the years, I keep discovering new abilities that I never knew I had.
For example, I've always played piano, but I never knew I had it in me to transfer my knowledge for music to someone else. The little guy I teach piano to, Jack, is now playing classical pieces and even writing his own music.
Just the other day I realized that I had a green thumb for gardening and landscaping that I honestly would never have expected. I've developed a well-rounded understanding of how HVAC works and can detail a car like the pros.
These are just a few examples of what's under the old belt, but what I recently noticed about myself was my ability to sell just about almost anything on Facebook Live.
I've succeeded in the past and decided to dip my toes back into the pool of online sales once again. The show was called "Selling Some Stuff" hosted by yours truly and it went a little something like this:
On Tuesday, I set up my iPhone and sat down on the couch with a mission: to sell everything that was thrown my way, but the catch is, I had zero idea of what I was actually selling. I had a list of prices per item, but didn't look at it until I needed to give the price. Needless to say, it was very entertaining as I was handed a few curveballs such as women's shoes, purses, a fish tank, and even Tupperware.
In the end, I profited just around $400 in which the sales went directly to the supplier of the stuff that I sold. Michael Rock gave me the idea of possibly doing this as a little side job. The idea would be to go to anyone who is looking to sell their junk and I would get a set-base commission off the total profit.
I mean, it's not the craziest idea in the world and of course, it would be done in a safe and socially distanced manner to respect the guidelines of the CDC.
Who knows, perhaps someday I could be paying my bills with my skills. After all, isn't that the name of the game of life, using your assets to acquire a living? If my newfound expertise in the world of online sales piques your interest, then hey, why not give it a shot?
At this point in my life, I have nothing to lose or gain, except of course a fat commission.
