1- I was fired from my job, a job that I had worked for 5 years
2- My car broke down, the starter burn and I can see smoke came from under the engine
Cost to fix car: $500
So, I was not really lucky, right?
But no, continue to read.
For a few months lately, beside affiliate marketing, I have been selling online on Amazon and eBay but I didn't get much from them. The sales was ok, I make the same as my salary from my job. I planned to quit my job next year so I want to allow some times to increase more sale and profit.
Suddenly, one day, I was fired, without prior notice. It was bad, but I was like "meh, I wanted to quit anyway". In fact, I was a little worried that if the sales on Amazon and eBay are not high enough, I won't have money to pay my bills.
So, since I'm free now, I focus 100% on my business, hoping that I could make a difference.
Let me tell you this: I Did make a difference.
For the past 10 days, approximately 2 weeks after I was fired, my daily sales skyrocket to over $1000, some days more than $2000. Usually for each $1 I spent, I made $2 back so you do the math. Everyday I make roughly $300 to $500. I'm not sure about you, but for a single guy with no girlfriend, no car payment, no home payment, no pet, no.....nothing like me, it is more than enough to live. I don't know if this increase in sales is temporary or not since it is holiday season but I'm trying to make as much as possible. Right now I'm expanding my business everyday. I find new products to sell and do more research about potential market.
So, I made it. I managed to turn the table in just 2 weeks. Losing a job is supposed to be devastating to someone but not to me. I don't encourage anyone to quit the current job because everyone is different. I just want to share a little story and I hope that one day, YOU can make a difference to your own life too.
