I'm humbled by your kind words, and glad I could help. You may also have saved a bit of money by designing your own book cover. And I'm going to give you access to the tools I use. For image editing from social posts to presentations, info-graphics and even book covers. You may want to check out Canva (just search your browser for the keyword) which I have been using for a few years. But you may also want some royalty free, high definition images. Which you can access unlimited free...

Awww thank you. I just Graduated from ohio media school on 12/17/18. The day before I started my own Online Beauty Supply Business. A fellow student of mines told me about Canva to make my own flyers. This is so exciting and so blessed. God is directing my steps. Leading me to good people to help steer me in the right direction. You had to be a part of his plan for me. I cannot thank you enough! On Mon, Jan 14, 2019, 11:06 AM The Penny Hoarder Community < [email protected] wrote:

@Deon Christie this is wonderful information, as I too, would like to begin working on my content for my first book. It is so hard to get started and I’m nervous that my material will be lacking and/or fluid enough to attract and keep an audience, but after all of that stated, it is my dream. Your added resources will help in moving the train along. I wish I could afford a ghost writer, lol. Thank you for your valued info.

for a new comer like me...how should i approach the shipping aspect of e-bay...more specifically, do you own a scale to determine postage? trying to map my mind around the whole process. thanks everyone!

Re: How I Paid Off My Student Loans By Selling on eBay

Moore Income ·
@Carlos Ortega I personally do a lot more estimating. I do however have a scale which I use sometimes. I generally charge FREE shipping so I just try to estimate a number into the price. One thing you can also do is if you are selling a similar item that other people have listed, if you go to their item and click on the "sell one like this" link, it will copy the weight and dimensions that person has set. This is not always accurate but you can get a ballpark number. For the most accuracy I...

Only a pleasure @Tam . The important part is to get started and you may want to replace the "ghost writer" with research. The more you research the bigger your knowledge vault will get, and in time you will surprise yourself with your own writing. Creating and owning your own writing work will put you on a whole new level of professional recognition. Wishing you all of success and prosperity.

I’ve done several side hustles. I’ve babysat, mystery shopped, product testing, focus groups, medical studies, let a beauty company test hair products out on me (this was my favorite because I got a free blowout and $40), Amazon delivery, and delivering organic fruit and veggie boxes for a local company (I got to take my daughter plus pay and all our fruits and veggies were free). Currently I’m trying out buying liquidations and reselling on Poshmark and eBay. We’re currently saving money to...

My "side gigs" started when I was in sixth grade (age 12) and I haven't stopped even in my retirement. I was working five or six side hustles through my junior high and high school years... yup, back in the 1970s! You've surely heard of teen millionaires, right? Well, I was NOT one of them. I was, however, able to support private art lessons and supplies in the following ways: Selling unimprinted calendars in the Fall / Winter with overstock from neighbors who ran a printing press in their...

I started a side gig back in the day when it was referred to as "moonlighting" in 1981 and grew it into a profitable full-time business that I continue to operate. I clean up litter outside commercial properties on foot using simple hand tools. It's almost as easy to do as going for a daily walk! My latest side hustle is my book, Cleanlots, that shares my experience with others wanting to do the same.

@Briana so far I like it. I find it easy to use. Out of my personal stuff, I'm selling maternity clothes and baby clothes. I also bought a box of Amazon returns from liquidation.com. After shipping it came to almost $300. The description said it's retail valued at $3300, I'm finding it's actually more. I'm working on looking up the actual retail value of things and posting them for 50% off. There were over a 100 items in the box. There are a few items I'll probably take to goodwill. If all...

@Crystal WHAT! That sounds like an incredible plan. You'll definitely have to keep me updated on how it goes. Do you see yourself consistently buying from liquidation.com and then selling?

@Briana- that's my plan. I'm a SAHM with a 3 month old and 2 1/2 year old. I'm working on trying to get everything posted on Poshmark when my kids are napping or after they go to bed. My goal is to post at least 5-10 items a day.

@crystal How much roughly do you pay for shipping on Poshmark? Also, how are the fees on Poshmark?
Reply

Re: Side Hustles

Crystal ·
@Candice - Poshmark takes 20% when you sell an item. The buyer pays a set shipping fee. When an item sells, they send you the shipping label. I bought a 100 poly mailers on Amazon for $12 to ship my items.

I love doing VIPKID the most because I'm a very social person and I get to interact with kids who are excited to learn. The pay is also substantial so that makes the top of my list. I also love the ease of user testing because it takes 10-20 minutes and is decent pay for that little time!

You don’t have to have a teaching degree but you do need a bachelors degree. I have a degree in biology and worked in healthcare for 3 years before I had my daughter. It has been a perfect job for a “stay at home mom” such as myself!

I try different side hustles at all times I keep 3 or 4 going to allow me more money to pay down my credit card balances. They have gotten out of control and some of them even got closed on me.

Side Hustles

Kirsten Cherry ·
I was first introduced to the concept of a “side hustle” when I saw a YouTube video by The Penny Hoarder talking about them. I was beyond intrigued. I followed a link to one of their articles about different side hustles you can do to make extra cash. I swear there were over 100 options and as soon as I started reading it, I began signing up for nearly all of them. It took hours and has been so worth it. That article has changed my outlook on money and how to spend and save properly. I...

You can use Ebays discounted shipping by printing right from the item. Using USPS preset priced and sized boxes, especially if the item is heavy. Buy a scale when you are starting out. I was stung a few times by heavy items that wouldn't fit in preset boxes and had to travel cross country.
