If you hang around any internet marketing or “make money online” circles for any length of time, you are sure to hear all about the importance of taking action.
And rightfully so, because taking action truly is what separates those who succeed from those who don’t.
This past Saturday I had an experience that reminded me just how important taking action is and how it can be profitable.
Friday night, I was searching Facebook marketplace for potential items to resell on eBay. I found this one listing for a Hard Drive and saw that the same seller was also selling several other items. She also had posted about a rummage sale on Saturday.
I decided I would go to the rummage sale and if I had any money to spare, I planned to offer her $100 for the Hard Drive (listed at $60) and a Receipt Scanner (listed at $50).
To my surprise, I found her at the rummage sale selling a bunch of stuff including those items. Except now the receipt scanner was $30!
I found several other items that I could potentially resell and made an offer for all the items for $90, and she took the offer!
This is where the “Taking Action” comes into play…
You see, a lot of times, I have made the mistake of purchasing items, bringing them home and then they just sit in storage for a long while before I actually get around to listing them.
Instead of doing that, this time I listed them for sale on eBay as soon as I got home.
Within 30 minutes of listing (for $77.77) the receipt scanner (no joke) I had received an offer for $60.00 + shipping, I countered the offer for $67.77 which they accepted immediately!
By the end of the hour I had packaged and shipped the item and had $30 profit!
All because I made a choice to Take Action!
I realize this post is a bit long but thanks if you have taken the time to read it.
I just hope that my experience can encourage someone else out there that taking action is important!
Whether it is taking action on your goals or vision or in some area of your financial life, remember, taking action is an important step on the pathway to success!
What is something you are willing to commit to taking action on?
