    Hi everyone,

    I' ve been reading many post on BHW and I see many of you guys being successfull. So, I'm an ebayer and I have sold some items. My problem is, I don't have money to invest, build a stock, and thinks like that... I've been selling some designer goods but is so hard to buy an authentic thing... many sites claim to sell only authentics deals but in fact they are giving you a fake thing! So, if I pay $1,000 for fake (being sold as authentic), I really prefer to buy direct from China and pay $200 for the same bag... but, I know this can get in trouble and I don't want this for me.

    I know that anyone here will not tell me his/her secrets, that is clear but I really need help. I've been thinking in everything that I can sell on ebay, or anything else that I can do online, but no answer to my questions. I like to sell designer goods, because it gives a good profit (look how may sells the powersellers are making!!!), many people pay hundreds and thousands for a designer clothes, jewelry, handbags, etc... but again, when I think be found a good supplier in the US, later, I discover that is fake designer sold for a hundred dollars. Luckly, I do my homework before buying anything!

    So I don't know what to do, I'm struggling to pay my college, and I'm a mom at home with a 9 months baby (this is not a drama, it is my life). I need to be able to afford my expenses!

    I spent hours and hours in my computer trrying to figure out what to do, and I have no conclusion...

    Please can someone give me some ideas? Thanks!

    Look it take time to build a good suppliers and enough cash to to get the really big discounts so just keep at it and slowly build up the money to get there.Easy and shortcuts are only for short term if you want to last build slowly so your mistakes will not break you. Also be careful of China sellers not all are bad but some are not what they seem at all.

    You arrived at the right place with a somewhat correct mindset.

    You´re aware no one is going to spoonfeed you, however, stick to studying this forum.

    You will struggle a bit in the beggining, and it will take time, effort, dedication and all the other qualities mentioned over and over.

    There are so many places to start in here that it can confuse you, but only you can pick what´s right for you and your current skills.

    I would say Craigslist is a good bet for you. But there´s Affiliate marketing, Seo and so many other ramifications you could follow and come out successful from.

    Other than that, welcome to blackhatworld and I wish you the best of luck.

    My very best advice to you is to read, read, read and read some more. Learn everything you can from the threads in this forum. Things will start to fall into place and make sense after you get some knowledge under your belt.

    Everybody has a story. Don't let yours lead you into making stupid decisions, like falling for ridiculous claims of instant riches, etc. If this is the right direction for you, then learning every damn thing you can is the best first step.

    Good luck with it!

    I disagree with some but don't read endlessly just get on with it.You will learn more from your mistakes than not taking action.Ohh one other thing have kids after you know how to make a living.I know that comment comes a little late but now you have a reason to get off your ass and make things happen.So now grow up and get it together a child is depending on you to stop making bad choices.So good luck and pm questions if you need to but i will not by any means spoon feed you.

    With a 9 month old at home, I suggest you go get a job, because your not going to get immediate and steady income as a newb on the internet to support you kid.

    I did think before had a baby, and actually, this is my second degree but I decide stay at home instead of leave my baby with someone else... and I have made some money online, not as consistent basis but I'm doing, so I'm just asking for some advise.

    I was very clear in my post, I don't expect be spoonfed, and my story is not pathetic, maybe your life it is... so...:boring:

    Thanks Dizzspaceteam, yes, I really know it... I've been looking for good suppliers this whole year, believe or not. I know good sellers from China but everything from there is fake and are not 100% perfect, there are some flaws and a treined eye can tell it is a replica, and another thing this can put me in trouble... so, I've looked to authentic suppliers but they seen to sell fake as authentic for 10x more...

    when it comes to vero designer items designer bags for me makes the best profit ever but you must choose your supplier carefully to get AAA quality stuff
