Hi folks

Not been around for a while as been focussing on building my business up! But thought I'd share a little of what's possible thanks to TMS. I joined here a little over 3 years ago having over £50,000 in gambling debt and no clue how I could pay any of it off. After following some of the tips and advice in here I started chipping away at it through various different means but intially focussing heavily on task based apps (like BeMyEye and the old task 360) before I hit upon the concept of reselling. The last two years I've been heavily into reselling and building up a reselling business from a £250 investment. Now three years later I've got my own office that I will be running my reselling business from part time and I've paid off about £30,000 of that gambling debt! I'm hoping in 2 or 3 years I'll be able to report back that I'm finally debt free! For those who are interested in what I'm up to I've made a YouTube playlist showing my progress on converting my office into my business HQ. Link below!


Thanks all

Andrew

Crikey that's quite a story!! Amazing that you've built all that up from a start of just £250

You should look at pitching the story to the press (with a fee attached) - They love stories like this at the moment!

Or write down your success story and sell it as an ebook. People love success stories, how to pay off debt stories and how to make money ideas.

If you need help to write it you can find ghostwriters on Upwork or Fiverr.

That's some great inspiration @Andrew! I started reselling at the end of August. Doing well so far, hoping to scale it to a full-time thing eventually.

That's excellent! I love reselling although it's a lot of hard work! Well worth it though :)

Have to ask @Andrew were you worries / apprehensive about paying out for an office in the current climate?

Can't answer for Andrew but online sales have done very well during lockdowns because there are less options available to people. It's also coming up on Christmas which is the most profitable time of year anyway. I think it would be a risk if you were in an industry that gets closed during a lockdown but anyone who runs an online business is in a very fortunate position right now.

Slightly but it was too good a deal to miss! And sales are on the up with shops being shut so hopefully it will pay off :)
