May 2015 Profits – Almost There!

Dollar Flipper Profits

 Well, it’s the first post of the month. That means a sales update! To recap, I set a goal at the beginning of the year to hit 10K in profit in 2015. Last year, I made just shy of $5,000 in profit. I then pulled a number right out of my butt hat and said “I bet I could double …

Dollar Flipper eBay Tips, Profits

Another month in the books! Spring has been a little weird around here in Maryland. It’s gone from winter, to spring for 2 days, then right to summer. Then back to winter (it actually snowed on Saturday last weekend), a week of spring, and now we’re going to have a high of 86 today. Basically, I’ve gone from wearing my …

Dollar Flipper Profits

Well, we’ve finished out the 1st quarter. Let’s just say that the shareholders aren’t too happy. Last month’s profits weren’t stellar, and those shareholders don’t want to just see profits. They need growth! At this rate, I might even get fired! March Profits by the Numbers Feb-15  Mar-15 Total Income Blog Referral 0.00  27.71 27.71 Sales 928.27  836.42 2,740.30 Shipping …

Happy Groundhog Day! In line with David Seah’s Groundhog Day review, I’m going to look at how I’m doing and where I need to go if I want to hit my 10k in profits for 2015. I’ll break away from his methods and report profits the first of every month, but I figure it’s as good a day to start …

Work From Home? Part-time eBay Profits

Dollar Flipper Blog Update, Profits

I have a lofty, forward-looking goal – work from home by re-selling on eBay (and a little on Amazon). I would go to thrift stores, garage sales, be the cool kid at the auction, and party it up with people at flea markets (just kidding, they’re a different bunch). So the big question is: Can I work from home by just …

At some point, if I continue with the blog, I’ll probably update to a pay-for theme. Right now, I can’t justify it though! October Profits and Goal …
