    Hello everyone,

    I've been making money (nothing major) online since I was 13. Haven't been on this forum in a long time and have never posted much so decided to make my own journey. The reason for this is because I am so busy (last year of A levels and taking SATs to go to the States) that I never stick to doing one thing. I often lay the foundations down for a large IM project and brainstorm ideas but then don't find the time to execute them.

    I've got experience in CPA (is this still profitable?) but have decided to keep things easy at first and stick to what I'm good at: buying and selling. I also sell unwanted items from friends/ family which will be counted towards this target. I'm looking to get into dropshipping but finding it hard to find a product and supplier.

    I'm hoping to use this to motivate me and hopefully others. The money is going towards my gap year!

    ANYWAY, what I have done so far this January:

    1) Bought two items for £15
    2) Sold one of them for £26
    3) Sold an unwanted christmas present £24

    COSTS: £15
    REVENUE: £50
    PROFIT: £35

    Any advice or comments about anything will be helpful I'm sure!

    Good luck, you can start off by selling old unwanted stuff around your house, it really adds up.
    Sold about $2000+ easily when i started, just by selling some old workout equipment, gaming systems, old computers, etc.

    Thank you! This is how I got used to eBay I've sold most my old unwanted stuff but there is always more stuff you can find to sell- nearly everything sells on eBay.


    UPDATE:

    Today I signed onto an old CPA account I haven't used since 2012 (CPAlead) to find out that they have lowered the payment threshold on paypal so I should be getting an extra £15 from that soon! I might attempt CPA again but not sure where to start so I'm going to stick to eBay only until I have a solid plan. Is CPAlead still a good network to use?

    I have found some more products under market value and have haggled the price lower still so should be picking some up to sell later today. Going to search the house again for unwanted items.
