So I’m wanting to build a smaller shop close to my lake house, and stop the 100 mile each way weekly commute. But to do so I have to sell most of my 31 cars, four containers of parts and an attic full of household item I’ve horded over the years. I was selling a lot of it on eBay, but all of a sudden they now want me to charge and file sales tax in the buyer’s home. That’s not practical.
So I created my own version of Craig’s list that I’ll be listing my stuff on. I’ve already sold a bunch on it in just the week its been up.
For Search Engine Optimization to work its best – more is better. The more ads that get listed, the more buyers are brought to the site. As such, it is in my best interest to allow others to post their free of charge.
So from cars to walking dogs, from land to landscaping, from RVs to baby sitting — what ever is legal and ethical can be listed. It operates like Craig’s list — only easier to use and better organized. So clean out your attic, shed, garage. Advertise the products or services your business offers. It’s all free and my only ulterior motive is to bring more buyers to the site so I sell my stuff faster.
Don’t expect to be able to live comfortably on the money the government takes from you for your retirement. I planned at a very young age (early 20s) to bust my ass to be able to retire at an early age, with the money for my wife and I to live comfortably for the rest of our lives. I retired ant 44, although I’m just as busy now as I was then.
It took a plan, long hours executing the plan, and the willingness to gamble with innovation, instead of playing it safe. The time is now for young people to get their shit together and build for the future. Don’t depend on the government as they screw up everything they touch.
