Selling Used Books Online – Make $ 750- $ 2000 Extra Per Month Or Go Full Time For $ 5k +

Selling used books online is one of the easiest, most fun, and most profitable part-time businesses out there. There is little guesswork when you use the tools that I'm about to show you, when deciding which books to buy for resale, and they are everywhere! For as little as 10 cents you can purchase a book that will resell for $ 4 – $ 100 or more on Amazon or other online selling sites.

When I first heard about selling used books online, it looked like it would be a big hassle. I figured you would have to list hundreds of books, not knowing what they were worth, and spend hours making an individual eBay-style listing for each one. Then ship dozens of books a day and only make a buck or two each. It did not sound too exciting.

The Locksmith Trade – The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

The Locksmith Trade – The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

Are you thinking about becoming a locksmith? Many people ask me about my profession when I arrive at a job site. The idea of working with the public, working with hand tools, making a quick buck on lock-out calls, and of course the power and ability to unlock doors, cars and safes is quite intoxicating for some people. I don’t place help wanted ads, but nevertheless I average one unsolicited résumé a month via e-mail. Usually it arrives from an eager teenager looking to do an apprenticeship. O.J.T.

That and reading every trade magazine I could get my hands on, endless hours doing research on the web, taking classes, attending trade expos, and talking with any locksmith who would take the time to chat with me (and many would, so long as I wasn’t one of their competitors).
