    Before I start, I would like to say that this is not done with any illegal/black hat method, it is totally legal and white hat, but envolves working outside the computer.

    I basically in May 2013 when I've went to a "country" where smart phones were expensive and someone I've met in the hotel i stayed in told me about buying smart phones and selling them in that "country", i really didn't bother to that idea, but then i've got to go there again in December so i've thought of buying only less amount of smart phones and it was only 10 of each of Samsung Note 2 , galaxy s4 and iPhone 5, and i've went in there and sold them to "small" phone shops. the profit was no more than $700 in total excluding the effort and time wasted for it.

    So i've thought of starting a little shop there in that "country" where the cost is so cheap, i found one in market for only $12000/mo, i've searched for two workers and the were locals and friends of "that friend from the hotel", i was only paying them each $2000/mo and the little shop did cost roughly $1300 to make with everything about it so it was cheap and small :) so after me making a shop ready with workers for only $15300, i've brought from my country cheap phones to sell and that time i've brought too many and it was many kinds, i've brought tablets, phones, chargers, covers.. and headsets. i thought i would make a lot of profit, but sadly i've got too less visitors and i thought of even closing after 2 weeks, fortunately everything changed when i lowered the prices a bit and i've reached aprox. $800/day so i make aprox 11k in that month, it was a loss i know , but i never gave up, i kept paying my workers and brought more products and i didnt believe when i heard after 3 days of the next month we have got $3500+ and till today we are making aprox of $2000/day profit and we are now searching for 2 more places to rent a small shops like this in the same city but different places.

    So, You should never give up, nothing will be easy at the start, and you should think of the long term not just about now.
    I know many people are saying this kind of business requires us moving, which most of you (teenagers - freshmen) can't and want to just work on your spare time, then you should find what is easy for you to make and hard for others, and market it :)

    Thank you for taking the time to read

    Ok, I've just kept it 'country' and wanted to say that at end but forgot, it is located in Turkey, and you woudn't believe that mobile phones in Turkey are actually 10-20% more expensive than many countries!

    I was quite sure about the answer, an old friend of mine banked big some time ago with what you're doing right now. Anyway, nice read and good luck with reaching your goals! :)

    $2000/day is not stable, some days we reach $3000 and some we go under $1500 depends on weekdays and events that make people reach this place.. etc
    Yeh the rent is still the same, i know huge profit :)

    By the way OP, are you also getting your phones for cheap as well? Or are you getting them at regular prices?

    The truth is, that successful people don't need self recognition.

    Replying to the question about getting phones cheap, I get them from a site similar to "amazon" but i can give the name sorry.

    About the 2 posts above me, that shows how ignorance you are, I've said "I'm from outside of turkey and i buy from my place and sell them in Turkey" and i told you I met a guy in a "hotel in turkey" so you must rethink before posting, also i was looking for that job opportunity because the OP seems to be a rich person and he might have good jobs which I can work for him while my business is being maintained by my 2 workers..

    Paper-Boy, yes, It is a website that sells electronics wholesale for cheap prices aprox 5-10% cheaper, and I sell them in Turkey where phones are 10-20% expensive so it rounds up me having profit of it
