    I'll start with my background. I used to sell over 10k a month in cosmetics and skincare. Then, my child's father and I broke up, and I decided to rejoin the workforce.

    So, here I am trying to get back OUT of the workforce.

    I have CRAZY wholesale hookups. You name it, I can get it. I'm talking authentic stuff. Italian handbags, cosmetics, sunglasses, wallets, designer clothing, basically any ebayer's dream.

    My problem is, I don't have the start up capital needed right now, and my credit is shit.

    I'm just going to throw this out there. I'm looking for someone to invest some money into funding me. I need at LEAST $1,000. In return, I'll give you all my points of contact for daily check-ups and my ebay id so you can see how well your money is doing. I will pay out 50% net profit. I prefer to only use Paypal so that both of us are covered.

    Also, once I have enough capital to start out on my own, I will relinquish every single one of my suppliers so that you too, can make crazy amounts of money.

    Here are some examples of products that I can get. (and will heavily persue)

    Rock & Republic Maternity Jeans-New with Tag

    $35 a pair. A pair in this condition recently sold for $165. This is just ONE example, and I literally have 100's of brands at my disposal.

    I just need one person that has faith in a dream and wants to make some quick cash. I can get your money back to you relatively quickly. (1-2 months, tops. Plus 50% of profit after fees and shipping costs.)

    If you are interested, PLEASE contact me! I can't wait to start up another lucrative business.

    I remember you on here saying you sold some make up or skin care products about a year ago. Surely you can scrape together $500 to start?

    Is this genuine stuff? I just wonder how you can get hold of it so cheap?

    money invest JV are treated very carefully nowadays, u have to give ID proof to MODs.

    also your signature link is SUSPENDED! That is huge red flag for me.

    if you was making $10k+ month surely you have a few $k banked to start it rolling again?

    It was Mac cosmetics.....still sell them? Why is the link broke?

    My link is broke because hostgator wants backdated payment. I'm trying to work with them on that. I didn't sell off that site because I used eBay and amazon anyways.

    My prices are cheap because I avoid middle men. I have tons of sources, but I only use suppliers from Italy or USA for what I sell. They all have docs of authenticity. Scrape together $500? I'm not sure where you got $500 from, but that's not enough to go wholesale direct.

    Right now I do have a lot of high end haircare, but I have to wait for it all to sell. I've seen many on here asking for much more money, with much less to offer, so I just thought I'd get in the mix. If you'd like to help, and get more money and a reputible supplier's list out of the deal, great. If not, I wish you well in your future endeavors.

    I also don't have a problem sharing my personal documents with the mods or with whomever invests in me, as I have nothing to hide. I wasn't expecting for lots of people to just jump out at me and offer me money, but I did figure maybe one or two people would be interested. Nothing ventured, nothing gained.

    It's for ANYONE who wants to stick their hand in the pot, so to speak. I don't care who wants to invest, I'll give out any source of security to prove that I won't just fly by night.

    Hell, I was even going to offer to send the title to my car, but I don't want someone just taking off with it. LOL If you need scans of my ID or anything else, let me know.

    I can have your money back in about a month. It will take about a week after I get the money to get the product, and then I need to take pictures and put them on ebay. I prefer to list on Sunday nights. I have never used a dropshipper before, and I don't want to, as that's less profit.

    I will guarantee 50% of all profit made for that first month, or until the DAY that I pay you back.

    So, to break it down in Plain English-

    I need $1000. I will be buying a case pack of Rock & Republic maternity jeans. It includes 24 pairs of jeans at $35 each. The total is $840. There will be shipping costs. I will be losing a little when you transfer the paypal fees.

    I'm not going to be greedy or be too much of a wishful thinker. I'm going to say that I will average $100 gross on each pair of jeans. That leaves us with $87.30 after ebay and paypal take their cut. After taking away the cost of the jeans ($35.00), that leaves $26 dollars profit a piece per pair of jeans.

    Give me $1000, I'll give you $1624 in a month (or less, depending on how long it takes to sell them all). I will also relinquish suppliers and any business knowledge you may need to start up. It's a win-win for both parties. After that, I should have enough money between work and profit to venture out on my own, unless you are interested in a longer-term venture.

    This isn't limited to $1000. If you want to invest more, I will look for more supplies to sell that are lucrative. I like the maternity market, as no one looks at pregnant women. I know from experience it's incredibly hard in some places to find good clothes whilst being knocked up. :)

    Keep the questions coming!

    Oh, duh. Most US suppliers ship internationally. Then I have suppliers in Europe too. Yes, they will work with you.

    I have about 5 people interested in the moment. I haven't had any money given yet. I will be selling on amazon and ebay. I do have a domain assigned for my site, but I haven't had the time or idea as to what I want to do with it yet.

    sounds like a great plan, especially with the holiday season rolling around.

    Thanks, I thought so too.

    With that, I'm going to bed. I'll answer all emails when I wake up. Thanks!

    Thanks for the interest, everyone. I've had one person ask to be invoiced. I will keep you updated.

    I'm still considering taking on another OUTSIDE the US, as to avoid more competition for me and the potential JV. Thanks!

    Thanks to everyone who showed interest. I've already had someone send me the $1,000. I'm sending her a 5 piece Burberry perfume set tomorrow as a thank you for believing in me. I will be posting reviews and updates from time to time. Hopefully she can post her experience as well, as I will be taking her under my wing and turning her into a money making machine. :)

    I may take on another investor next month, we'll see how things go. If anyone would like to start up a site and have items dropshipped or help me start up a site for a percent of sales, please let me know! I already have the domain and a hosting account. Thanks!

    Hiya Marusia,

    You disabled PM. But would you be able to PM me your email address? Instead of dropshipping, I want to work with an ebay powerseller on some of the stuff that i have.

    Would you say you're an amazing salesperson? Or was it just that the items you used to sell (10lk) are just so hot selling item by itself, that you didn't have to work a sweat to sell them?
