    You might consider real estate as an investment. With your earnings, it wouldn’t take very long before you could retire, if you wanted to. For instance, shy of $200,000 purchased a 4 plex that generates $2500 in rent every month. Do that a few times and you’re golden ;)

    I have enjoyed many of your threads, thank you for posting.

    Congrats, Sherbs. You are where 90% of this forum can only dream to be.


    I've spent years working it out with Amazon niche sites. Even now, I only see trickles. Can you point to any solid guide here on how to start with AliExpress? Is there any difference in setting up Amazon and Aliexpress niche sites?

    Good luck in your journey and goals. I am just wondering why you've 7 Amazon/Adsense niche sites if they are not making a single dime. Why don't you sell these websites to get some income and invest in rest of the projects?

    This is cool sherbs. All pretty well laid out, like the way you are including every possible rev stream no matter how big or small - you’re right, every little does help.

    It’s a good mentality to spread on bhw about well - nobody should be ashamed of something that generates a small amount of income because get a few of those things going together and they soon add up.

    I would suggest to open a clinic not to employ your wife but other people and with the help of you wife make work . So at the end you do IM for you Clinic bussinesss and if in any case your wife wanna quit from her job you both would always have a place were to continue.

    Insurance, health ... and i dont remenber which other niches are very profitable at the same time you can help people...

    Just an idea, i will wish you best of luck but as many people says, luck= effort so hope you get time for all ;)

    I shall, thank you!

    These sites will likely be six AdSense and one Amazon. The Amazon one is in the high-end jewelry niche, and the others are definitely not targeted enough to do well with AliExpress. Plus the thought of selling to Russians gives me the heebie jeebies. It's definitely an interesting idea though. I assume you are referring to general dropshipping?

    I try to do the same, and then by mid February I'm so far behind on tracking everything that I just scrap it. Not this time.

    I talked to the wife about doing this. We mutually agreed to wait until the big money was flowing. I couldn't imagine the stress of dealing with the property purchasing process again, as well as the added stress of maintaining a fourplex, finding renters, etc. Even if through a management company.

    Although the rental prices in my area are very advantageous to homeowners. I'm seeing quarter-million dollar homes in my neighborhood that would have probably $1,500 a month tied into mortgage/property taxes/HOI renting out for $2,500 a month all day everyday.

    We have a dream of having the following under ownership:
    • A home close to the beach in Florida (done)
    • A condo in downtown Seattle or house on Queen Anne Hill
    • A house somewhere near San Francisco but across the bay, like Sausalito
    • A cabin in Vermont or Maine
    • A house in Akureyri, Iceland
    We would love to rent them out as vacation homes when we aren't using them, and then just block out weeks that we or the family plan to stay.

    I'll be honest, I'm scoping that. I'm not sure if I'd be able to get back what I put into them, but of the seven, five of them could definitely be liquidated for probably a couple hundred a piece.

    Thanks @davids355! You are absolutely correct, nothing should be left by the wayside.

    We have mulled around this idea. She mentioned that she would rather make $500,000 a year as a trauma surgeon at a hospital and be able to leave at the end of a shift and forget about it until the next one, compared to making a little more doing something private practice and having the stress of running a business over our heads constantly. I completely agree with her.

    Thanks for replying. :) I am referring to the affiliate program of aliexpress. Personally I do not like the idea of dropshipping. Too much work and hassle. Aliexpress has an affiliate program that is quite lax with rules. You can even do cookie stuffing with it though it is illegal.
