How Much Money Does It Take to Start Your Own Import/Export Business?
Last month, I flew to Alabama for my sister’s wedding. It was the first time I’d flown since the new baby, and it felt good to be up in the sky again.
The man next to me struck up a conversation about work and how he was ready to retire soon, but worried about completely letting go of his income. I suggested starting an import/export business on the side.
He wasn’t sure he liked the idea. “I’m ready to retire NOW,” he said.
“I don’t want to create another business. I already put my time into building businesses… 35 years. And I don’t have another 35 years to build something new. I need much faster results.”
You may feel the same as my seat mate as you’re reading about the import/export idea this week.
But like I told him, you should know this is something you can make as little or as big as you want.
You can start a business. Name it. Buy and sell large quantities. And make lots and lots of money, like Gauri Nanda and the Hickeys who you heard about earlier this week.
Or you can just do it when the urge strikes. Start with as little as $50 and advertise your products on sites like eBay and Amazon.com where you only pay for advertising if your product sells.
Success is fast, too. You can place an order today. And have your product in-hand by next week. Your advertising up in as little as an hour.
And there’s nothing that says you can’t use the manufacturers you find to order goods for yourself either.
In fact, I’ve already made several purchases through the Importing Fortunes program portal and my shipments have all arrived in record time.
You don’t even have to order large quantities. I’ve ordered mp3 players, a tablet, and wedding favors. And now that I know how great wholesale prices can be, I’ll never pay full price again.
If you’ve ever bought anything online – a book, a birthday present, flowers, dishes, an airline ticket, you name it – you have what it takes to do this!! I promise it really is that simple.
