    Hey everyone,

    I Already have started working on this project since 05/09/19 and I'm already seeing results but wanted to make this thread to make myself accountable and maybe inspire others.

    I discovered that money could be made online very young in life, and to be honest, for me is the most exciting thing in the world. Sadly, real life doesn't work like a fairytale and after finishing school I went to college to study a career I really wasn't interested in learning and soon after started working in the family business. Every day feels like I'm wasting my time and others and I have very low involvement in my day job. I procrastinate the daily stuff and I really would be happy to be self-employed, working in a peaceful home office. I started a youtube channel a few months ago and discovered that I have talent for it and started to receive lots of subscribers but sadly with my full-time Job and a family is impossible to maintain the channel.

    I figured that if I want to be happy and fulfill my real aspirations I can't work doing something I don't like, so I decided to put real effort in this project and hustle my way to replace my day job income with my online venture.

    Right Now I'm short of cash and I cover most of the expenses at home so investing money into an online business is not a possibility for me. I decided to focus in no investment business models to start making money ASAP.

    For the moment my monthly income target is USD $2,000 ( I earn $1,670 at my day job) and I plan to do Weekly updates and a monthly report to let you know how well I'm doing.


    I'm currently working doing POD with Printful + Etsy, Printful + Amazon and also using KDP to sell low content books.

    I started working on 05/09/19 and so far these are my results:

    Etsy: Revenue $0 Profit $ 0
    Amazon: Revenue $39.19 Profit $ 8.49
    KDP: Profit $ 7.10

    Profit for the week: $15.59

    Good luck to your journey! Any particular reason you decided in favor of POD out of all other methods?

    No need to advertise, Etsy and Amazon have plenty of traffic on their own.

    But still you would need to draw some of that traffic into your storefront man. I strongly suggest you dive into social media. It´s free and it can be very powerfull if done correctly.

    I have some questions about Printful + Amazon, hope you will respond positively.
    1. Do you design products & upload those products on Amazon Seller Center & when you get sells on Amazon, You order at Printful to Fulfill the Order, Right.?
    # If (1) is True, Do you need any specific Requirements/Approval needed for Amazon?

    Thanks

    Yes, you need a seller account to sell at amazon and when you link your amazon seller account with printful you need to fill a form to be able to list products without UPC for your brand. In my experience, it was very easy. Also, orders get fulfilled on autopilot, you only have to make sure there's money on your card to cover the expenses.

    there's always an opportunity, the question is how much do you want to succeed. I tell this myself every day to motivate me.
