There was a time, not too many years ago, that having your name on a college diploma was a really big deal. In today's world, however, a college diploma is the new high school diploma. College degrees do not carry anywhere near the weight they once did. Due to the ease of obtaining student loans, a college degree may communicate nothing more than that you are up to your eyeballs in debt. As a result, the landscape of hiring has dramatically changed, Human resources departments can no longer simply skim through a stack of resumes and separate those with degrees... Read more →


Staff Writers Of ChristianMoney.com The Internet has long been the new way to communicate, to include advertise, do business, and engage in a variety of other commerce-related interactions. I mean, do you even receive a traditional Yellow Pages book at your house anymore, and, if you do, do you keep it? If you keep it, do you actually use it? The bottom line is that if the Yellow Pages is your “go-to” resource for finding merchants and service-providers in the established Internet Age, you’re definitely behind the curve. What’s more, if you’re not using “old school” resources like the Internet... Read more →


One of the great things about Amazon is that it has EVERYTHING. This is also Amazon's biggest weakness as well. Many times people will find a site like Amazon more than a little overwhelming. If you are looking for a specific item, the large number of choices can make the process very confusing and time consuming. An additional problem for Amazon is that a niche site can easily rank higher in a given category in a search. For example, while Amazon does sell hammers, it would be much easier for a website that exclusively sold hammers to achieve a higher... Read more →


I am always on the lookout for unique opportunities, especially those that can represent a great part time income. There is a lady in my small town that does very well managing social media for a number of the local businesses. I have been looking around trying to find a good course on this topic that I can recommend. PaidSocialMediaJobs is a very interesting program. They even have a news segment from a local TV channel discussing the opportunity. Businesses owners understand that getting new customers today is no longer about buying an ad in the Yellow Pages, but having... Read more →

I have been buying offline and reselling on Amazon for several months now. I have made so many mistakes, but seem to have mastered this whole platform now. I want to share with you some of the real game-changers for me, and also some recent examples of actual items I have bought and resold. Amazon Discount Shipping In the very beginning I did not use the Amazon discount shipping option available to Amazon FBA resellers. It was right there in my dashboard, but when they said 'discounted shipping' I thought it was something minor (like 5 or 10 percent off).... Read more →

The Internet is a lot more than sending emails, watching cute cat videos on YouTube, and reconnecting with old friends on Facebook. The Internet is largely how business gets done nowadays, and whether you are a work-from-home entrepreneur or an employee at a company constantly in search of ways to gain an edge over the competition, the business orientation of the Internet is something to which you should be paying particular attention. Why Website Building Skills Will Continue To Be In High Demand This article is not, however, simply a recitation on how important the Internet is to business; it... Read more →

In the case of retail arbitrage, the asset is a consumer good, and the idea is... Read more →

If you are a regular reader, you are well aware of my latest financial adventure - retail arbitrage. I shared in a recent article how I had bought a remote control toy car at CVS and flipped it on Amazon for a nice profit. I was only able to buy a total of three of these cars before the shelves were empty. I still find it fascinating that products can be bought right off the shelves of major retailers and sold online for a profit. I think I am starting to understand why this works so well. Plugging Into Amazon's... Read more →

Well, I have to tell you that this whole situation has taken on a life of its own. I started all of this as research for an article. Next, that turned into a four hour course, and now I am finding stuff to sell almost everywhere I go. To be honest with you, it has really become very fun. Maybe I will get tired of the scavenger hunt at some point, but for now it is like a never ending adventure. The amazing thing is that the more I go out looking for things to sell, the easier it gets.... Read more →
