4-31-2005 Goal Uncertainty

My 2-28-2005 goal of making $3,500 was made in order to meet my 4-30-2005 goal of making $11,000. Unless I come up with two grand in the next 6 days, it looks like I won’t meet it.

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: I need more income! I realize I have school which keeps me extremely busy, but I need to form another steady stream of income that is very low maintenance like my current online business. It brings in between $500 and $1,000 per month with less than 20 minutes of maintenance per day.

Resumite.com is my other potential income stream, but takes a large time investment. Even with all the craziness of school I must still dedicate some more time to opening side businesses like in the past to meet my $11,000 goal!

Lots of money yet low maintenance…seems too perfect, but it’s possible. I need to keep thinking!

    Though this won’t help you for your April deadline, I found that by going through dorms at the end of each Spring semester I was able to load up on a lot of great stuff to sell which generated a lot of revenue for me in my college years.

    You’ll be amazed at what students throw away and they usually leave it stacked next to the trash room. The real jackpots are used school textbooks. Take them to the Co-op and sell ‘em!

    Back when I was in school, I used to load up on the mini-fridges and halogen lamps that the seniors would just leave behind. Kept them in my garage which was an hour away from school and resell them for $75 a pop to the incoming freshman/sophomores when school started again. Made about $500 or so doing that my senior year. But I don’t think this will help you much since you’re graduating this year.

    I actually will be around this summer, so I might consider snapping up some items on the cheap (or free!) and reselling.

    Appliances are pretty much standard everywhere here, dorms and apartments, so not sure about that.

    I know nice beds and couches get thrown out all the time, I bet I could somehow resell these!

    I was considering walking around with several hundred dollars in cash, and offering to buy stuff from people moving. People tend to sell very cheap when you stick easy cash right in their face. Thanks for the feedback, I really appreciate it!

    I started a small online business in my last year of high school that continues to make $500 – $1,000 a month with very little effort.

    I am also a business writer for the Daily Texan newspaper, I get paid $15 per article which is NOTHING. I also work at the UT Law School and oversee the computer lab during the night shift. I get paid $7.32 an hour, but since I work nights I have very little to do meaning I can do my homework!
