    Sup guys.

    This isn't a A-Z layout for making cash, but instead a quick tip that is real and works. This also isnt for -everyone-, simply because not everyone has a passion or hobby

    It's very simple. Look at your hobbies, figure out what you have a personal passion for, and think of ways to make money doing it.

    You don't need to be a genius webdesigner or have a super rare awesome hookup on products to make money.

    I say this because I've been in the game for years now. I've had my ups and my downs, and put in a TON of hard work figuring out what works and what doesnt.

    but recently I came into enough spare cash to venture into a few new fields without worry if they go belly up. one of which was the erik creed jv, which doesnt seem to be a good thing at all.

    Secondly, i decided to try another thing. this time it was just a random stumble, i happened to be surfing the web looking into my hobby (I'm sort of a collector, i spend countless hours on fan forums, ebay, craigslist, etc etc) and realized I knew the exact value of every item due to my passion. from there, it was just a simple few hours of surfing like i always do with the thought of looking for great deals while doing it. I always see these deals, but never jump on them because i personally just dont have the disposable income to buy such an amount of stuff for myself, and dont have room to store anything.

    But now that I'm looking at it as an investment, as product to sell, its an entire different story. I started with 200 dollars to use. I came out with 400. I've reused that 400 and should be walking out with 1200 by the end of the month. The process just repeats itself.

    I spend alot of time doing this "work", but the thing is, this is my passion and my hobby. I've made what i love doing something to bring in income, so working "overtime" doesnt feel like working at all.

    it's retardedly easy to make money if you simply know the niche your going into. what better way to know your niche than to target your own personal passion.

    be creative. my passion has been with me since i was a young child. not until a month ago did I realize its profit potential. You'd be shocked if you just sit down and think about it for a bit.

    Examples:
    -sports fans: look into sports memorabilia. figure out where you can locate deals on sports merchandise and simply stock up every chance you get on a deal.

    -Sports enthusiast: Hunt down equipment for cheap prices, if you're active in a sport, you probably know how much an item cost. (ie who here can tell me exactly how much a certain brand hockey stick costs? i dont know, but you do. when YOU see one at a good deal, you know its a good deal)

    -like playing with cars? go to auto salvages and haggle that 50 dollar piece down to 10 bucks, then resell it online.

    you consider it more work when thinking about it because you have to actively go out to find these things. but you'll have so much fun doing it if its your hobby, it wont feel like work at all. I'm pulling 18 hour shifts technically, and I couldnt be having more fun, all the while at least doubling every penny I put in (atm im at about 4x)

    dont be narrow minded. if you have a hobby that has EVER required you spend money, then there's money to be made. just think about what is wanted and find it at a deal!

    gogogo!
