There are plenty of folks achieving great results by selling on Amazon. Maybe that is the way to fund your first real estate deal.

Welcome to todays show folks. I want to try and address a question that I get all the time from all kinds of buyers. Where can I get the money to get started in real estate? One solution is the “Side Hustle”. This is something you do in addition to your regular job that is designed to make you extra money. This can help buyers get that down payment or investors get enough capital to make that first investment. I was chatting with a listener who brought up the idea of selling on Amazon to build up enough money to get a real estate investing strategy going. It sounded like an interest option, so I took a look. After a whole lot of youtube watching, I think I can say that there is enough free information out there to make a good effort at making this work for you. Some of the options actually involve little money to get going.  In todays show, I will give a run down of what I have learned so far and offer suggestions on what kind of folks to avoid. Find below some links to amazing content/channels on YouTube that can easily get you started:

  • Jungle Scout – Tool and awesome channel for amazing info.
  • AMXScout – Tool and channel with some good info of its own.
  • Hands down the BEST video I have seen so far on selling via Private Label:
  • Viral Launch – Pretty comprehensive tool and also a great source of info.
  • Flipping Profits – YouTube channel with lots of hands on info for folks who want to do Retail Arbitrage.
  • FBA Couple – They have trainings to sell, but you will still get great nuggets from their videos for free.
  • Bill Stenzel – High school teacher with an FBA attitude and … well… hair. He does have a training to sell but lets loose with plenty of useful and actionable info in just about every video. He actually teaches these things to high school students who then end up making decent side hustle cash on Amazon!

Do you have a side hustle that is working for you? Tell me about it!
