Lesson 2 – Part-Time Flipping: Dip Your Wallet Into An Extra Income Stream

Turn minutes into money and give yourself more choices about how you spend it. Learn how to maximize your time to make the most cash.

  • Get in the game – learn how to break into flipping even with limited free time.
  • Learn how to monetize your time
  • Make the most money with the least amount of work.
  • Turn your time-wasters into profit centers – think about the money you could be making every time you’re doing nothing.
  • Give yourself options – extra money = more security, the choice to quit or scale back your full time work, potential to replace your job with this full-time.
  • Use the time before and after work. Start by organizing your weekends for flipping.
    1. Take advantage of weekend garage and estate sales. Check out Craigslist’s section on Garage Sales, under the For Sale section. Yard Sale Treasure Map app. 
    2. Get to sales before the start time and negotiate on the good stuff first.
    3. Do the rounds at the end when sellers are desperate to clear their inventory – look for single or bulk deals.

  1. Friday night/Saturday morning: comfy chair, a beverage, laptop in front of me and smartphone welded to my side, trolling sales listing.
  2. From that I develop an itinerary for the sales. Don’t spend too long (may need to at first) inside doing this – get out and make deals. Maximize your time: Example: roommate working 55 hours to make $500 – could do it in 90 minutes by flipping.

From A Weekend Away To Furnishing A Home – Flip For It!

  2. Use my Item Profit & Loss Tracker spreadsheet tool. Take the fuss out of calculating what your buys, expenses, profits, losses, etc., translate into real cash.
  3. Note ALL of your outgoings and incomings – even if you only have totals for each at the start. However, since this is a real business, you will need to break down these figures into more detail.
  4. Track your time. This is the best way to get the most money out of your efforts, particularly at the start. Even include traveling and cleaning time to get the clearest picture of how to maximize those minutes.
  5. Inventory: not everything will sell immediately, so you need to know what you have at any given moment. From this information, you may even decide to re-post items as packages or bundles when you acquire something later you can combine with it.
  6. Research: Don’t repeat yourself by accidentally revisiting the same sites or listings. Organize these into pages by storing them to read later or in your Favorites’ sub-folders. The types of info I handle like this: market research, trends, mortgage rates.

What You Will Learn

  • Introduction to the tracking guide that will keep you clear as you buy and sell.
  • Learn invaluable tips for all items that challenge you.
ONLY FOR LOGGED-IN USERS

Lesson 1 – Speed Succeeds and Goals Get Things Done

Learn how to benchmark your activity, monitor your costs, keep an eye on inventory and your progress every week.

What You Will Learn  

  • Wam, bam, make the deal. Speed is everything.
  • Learn how to communicate, respond, and do the small things that go above and beyond to close deals.
  1. Speed, Speed, Speed – arguably the most important thing in flipping is speed
  2. Learn pro tips to move on items quickly, and sell items quickly
  3. Learn to set financial goals
  4. Learn to push yourself to make larger profits
  5. The pace that you set dictates the money that you’ll get. Speed counts:
    • If you can jump on deals as soon as you see them, you’re that much closer to maximizing profits.
    • Post items as soon as possible after buying them – don’t become an accidental hoarder.
    • Respond quickly to sellers and potential buyers when they contact you. This shows respect and professionalism, but don’t shorthand your communications – be courteous and friendly in order to create the best impression.
  6. Use goals, quotas and targets to give yourself something to aim for and hit.
    1. Financial goals are the easiest to define: you may need $2,000 for your credit cards, $5,000 for a car for your kid or $10,000 to make a down payment on a house. Whatever it is, it gives you a definite number to hit.
      1. Break it down into deals – how many do you need to make?
      2. Consider your profit margins – how many $20 profits will it take? Maybe you can increase your profit margins and still make the sale? Experiment until you find what works.

  7. Larger profits usually require larger items and here’s where having a van or truck on hand comes in useful. A second-hand vehicle will pay for itself after you start dealing in furniture or appliances. (It also makes the sale more likely if you can offer free delivery – build the cost into the price.)

Lesson 2 – Fund Larger or One-Off Projects With Creative Flipping – Your Own Private ATM

The adrenaline of the deal: your success accelerates as you do. Set targets to meet with your increasing speed and watch profits rise.

What You Will Learn

  • Think of a goal that requires money. You can get there now.
  • Your business, house, vacation, car, is weeks if not days away from you.
  • You can flip for profits to finance anything from a brief shortfall of cash to a charity fundraiser.
  • What is your dream? You can use flipping as a catalyst to your dream life
  • Learn how to use flipping to fund your business or goal
  • Real Life Example: upgrading a house for ‘free.’
  • Subsidizing other businesses: Intelligent Muscle, a cataclysm for physical and inner growth, and BLAST 5 Training, Build muscle that matters - Why be the size of a fridge when you can’t tie your own shoes?

Lesson 3 – The Money Magnet – You Create The Energy and Leverage That Takes You To The Next Level

Experience, skill development, and speed accumulates like energy. This is how you can leverage this for the next level of performance – draw business to you with less effort.

  • Become someone who attracts money
  • Learn to refine your flipping skills: 
    • Spotting deals
    • Negotiating 
    • Expanding your “picking” sites
  • As you gain experience and speed at jumping on the small deals, you stockpile energy and leverage that can grow your business.
  • You’re also developing and refining your business systems and routines to prepare you for making more money.
  • Once you’re in the groove, you activate the Money Magnet – profits are attracted to you – and the next level opens. 
  • The stockpile of skills, knowledge, techniques, leverage, and energy you’ve built gives you something to stand on so you can reach premium profits. 
  • You’re ready to hit the larger deals and bigger flips – boosting your profit margins.

  • Move from Craigslist general goods to eBay Collectibles. If your passion lies in vintage items – from toys, to clothes to antiques – or even rare sports’ cards, you’ve developed your knowledge and can now take on the real deals.
  • As your Money Magnet draws more money to you, it will also bring even more experience. Another building block to turn your hobby into independence, if you want it.

What You Will Learn

  • Learn how to create energy that literally attracts the things you want.
  • Determine if you are ready to move onto the larger items. Think growth!

Lesson 1 – More Fun Than Mud-Wrestling Kittens In A Bouncy Castle

No two days are the same and, in each one, you’ll learn something new, make new friends and solve people’s problems. Never worry about being bored in this business.

  1. Are you being paid to have fun right now? Do you wake up, happy and excited to go to work? Or are you trying to make a living while knee deep in kids and chores? What about you with the student loans and a part-time, plonker job? I doubt any of you are loving that life and making the money you want. This business can turn that all around. You have:
  2. Total Variety: No day is identical – who knows what you’ll find. Explore different niches, meet new people, etc. Can’t get bored.
  3. No Borders: Can do from anywhere – smartphone – I’m always doing deals. On trips, learn about new markets: Thrift Stores and Craigslist, L.A., watches.
  4. Problem-Solver: I’m not a cog in someone else’s machine, I have the freedom to solve people’s problems directly. I put together one person’s Have with another’s Need, but I make it better by cleaning it up, fixing it or packaging it to make a super bundled deal.
  5. Passion for Learning: If it makes you money, it’s not learning, it’s fun. Fact in this business: Knowledge = Cash. Forget the farty classrooms or dull online courses, this is real learning that puts dollars in your pocket. And here’s a secret, when you’re passionate about something – whether you get into furniture or guitars – you enjoy becoming an expert.
  6. Learn that flipping is not “work” – it is fun
  7. Create your own version of flipping
  8. Meeting People: Even introverts, who never liked meeting people, get a buzz out of this business. Your focus is different – you’re zeroed in on the Big Picture of profit and the next deal. And that’s the difference, this is a deal, not a date. You don’t have to even like the people, but it helps if you try. You never know who will become a regular buyer or seller.
    1. Your networking potential is limitless: I’ve met sellers who’ve become regular buyers, people who alert me to deals and made a ton of friends along the way: Examples: free golf lessons; buyer of BLAST5 Training. Can meet experts who can help you assess value, too.
  9. Group Fun: You don’t have to be alone. Once friends and family see how much fun you’re having and money you’re making, it’s easy to get them involved, even if it’s just helping you move items to begin with. It’s also a buzz to see the respect they’ll develop for your new business skills.
  10. Job Creation: yes, you can be a real boss with employees. It makes me feel good when I can create a job for someone else. I’ve hired people many times.
  11. Giving It Back: Since you can make money from nothing in this business, you could simply donate it to charity. A bigger idea is using flipping to create a Charity Event. Have people bring in a treasure from home and help them flip it for the group or cause.

Money: If you can’t have fun with money, you’re in the wrong business.

What You Will Learn

  • Do you hate work? It should not be like that. Reclaim your fun.
  • Flipping is amazing! Learn how satisfying how it is when you get cash for a deal.
  • Your potential is limitless. Go in-depth on how to create your dream life.

What You Will Learn

  • Tap into your long lost creativity.
  • Listen to those crazy ideas and learn to act on them.
  • You. Are. Creative. You may not know it yet, but you are. And there’s nothing like flipping for waking and ramping up that part of you. You are creative. You’re an explorer and experimenter now.
  • Every day is new territory, your brain neurons are going to be firing along virgin ground as well. You will feel this energy.
  • New possibilities will occur to you - Eye for the Deal©.
  • Learn the basics of investing in yourself & master The Eye for the Deal
  • You can work on your creativity: read new things, learn a new language/instrument, try stand-up comedy…knock something off your Bucket List.
  • Tell those voices in your head to “WTF Off”! If someone you loved or respected ever told you, you weren’t creative, silence them with action. Crank up your favorite tune and dance it off, break a plate or kick a ball. It’s time to reclaim your creativity and make money with it. (If you’re still unsure, re-watch this vid until it takes.)
  • Creativity Feeds Creativity: The more creative you are, the more creative you become. Give yourself permission to try and let me show you how: GUARANTEE to make YOU money from anywhere in the world, using nothing but CREATIVITY and ENERGY.
  • YOU Can Learn To Be Creative: Here’s how I’d help: parachute into your neighborhood, scope it out, etc. GUARAN – Freakin’ – TEED. Arrogant? No. Confidence. Yes.
  • Challenge yourself to be creative, to improve yourself every day (Examples of bodybuilding? Hold up B4 and After pics? Great visual aid).
  • You can become a Flipping Ninja or Samurai, if you’re passionate enough.
  • Learn from others. Gather ideas from people you meet, ads you see, any sources that spark your creativity – (Send creativity tips in Tweets? Email?)

    1. Stick to your limit and be selective about what you buy – go for quality and durability. Don’t wallow in $5 profits, you’ll be spending all of your time NOT making money. Ask yourself:
      1. Is it worth my time? Think about driving time (gas prices).
      2. It can take you the exact same time fixing up and selling a cheap item as an expensive one. Which one will earn you more money?
      3. Am I patient enough for my learning curves as I’ll take more time to turn around an item at the beginning? It will take you longer at first, but if you’re motivated, it won’t be long before you have a streamlined system of buying, posting and selling.

What You Will Learn

  • Step back and think like a buyer to sell more
  • Learn what buyer are looking for and thinking about to market your products straight to the buyer - where they cannot say no to your deal.
  1. Sell Things As A Package – Ask “What If…?” – Think like a buyer:
  2. Be practical: What would you need to make this complete? Batteries? A power cord? A memory card? For each element (bought cheaply) you add, you increase your profit margin, because the perception of buying something complete has more value than the sum of its constituent parts.
  3. Be holistic: Envision what goes with what to make a whole package – visit Amazon and search for your item, now scroll down and see what’s listed under: Frequently Bought Together. For example: Guitar, amp and bag.
  4. Be creative: A package is always more attractive than single items – remember you’re satisfying a need and if buyers can do that with one-stop-shopping, you’ll make more money, more often. For example, you could put together a set of free weights, a juicer and a recipe book! Play What If…?
  5. Be efficient: I experimented with the idea of compiling a package that would outfit a whole, small apartment. Staged the whole living room. Example: apartment setup.

Lesson 1 - Power Negotiating Tips (Pt. 1)

What You Will Learn

  1. CL – everything is negotiable: offer low and then counter-offer. Minimize rejection when selling:
    1. Firm Price
    2. Build leeway into price
    3. Trust your gut
    4. Bring cash
    5. Be professional in everything: email, texts, convos. Friendly courtesy is your guideline. Say please and thank you. Example, charming female keyboard customer, pages 260-262
    6. Handling lowballers in email: verbiage: page 266
    7. Be self-aware.
    8. Listen.
    9. Don’t lose buyers
    10. Stick to your price
    11. Bring a buddy
    12. Build on the trust and respect.
    13. Treat everyone like a human being.
    14. WIIFM? Think like a buyer.
    15. Be prepared for questions and objections, example: weighted keys on keyboard
    16. Educate and provide value.
    17. Never argue about value.
  2. Tips for Buying:
    1. Is there anything I’ll need to do to the X?
    2. Be a peacemaker – don’t get into political, religious, inflammatory discussions.
      1. The 2nd tip for buying is – similarly to what we mentioned before about simply being professional – try and BE A PEACEMAKER, what I mean by this is don’t get into political, religious, or inflammatory discussions. There’s no need, and it’s a waste of energy and time you could be using to make deals, make money, and gain experience. 
    3. Know your stuff.
      1. The 3rd key buying tip is – know your stuff. The more you know, the more you grow. The more you learn, the more you earn. By learning as much as possible about the item you’re about to buy in order to flip for a profit, it only gives you an upper hand as far as negotiation goes. You can use what you know to persuade the seller on why he should lower the price. 
        1. There was a Yamaha keyboard I drove 30 minutes to buy one time. Once I got there, I realized that something seemed off with the sound. It was definitely a defect because I’ve owned dozens of these models and this had an actual buzzing sound that came through the speaker. I brought this to the attention of the buyer, and he ended up feeling bad about it (especially since I drove 30 minutes) and sold it to me for $100 instead of what he posted it for which was $200. 
        2. Know your stuff. Do your research beforehand, use my 4 weapons of determining value to help you here.
  3. Poker face
    1. If you see the deal of a lifetime… a Harley Davidson Motorcycle with Wings on it… made of gold… don’t break out the tickertape and pompoms. Pretend this is Happy Poker. You’re all smiling and friendly on the outside, but inside you’re DESPERATE to score the item – keep it a secret. Don’t let your desire for it show whatsoever. 
    2. In negotiations, the one who wants the deal the most is weakest. Play stronger. They may take the deal, they may not. You. Just. Don’t. Care. If you end up convincing yourself, more the better, there is an abundance of deals out there. Plus, you’ve got a full pipeline anyways, don’t you?
  4. Justify your case
    1. Really put yourself into the sellers shoes now. Why would they want to lower their asking price? What’s their situation? Are they moving and need it gone? Are they content with keeping the item and aren’t rushed to sell? Really figure out the answers to these questions then follow them up with ones like “How quickly can I pick it up?” In this example, they’re motivated to sell quickly and you’re offering to buy it now. You’re a serious customer, not a time waster or tire kicker. At this point you need to close quickly. Be nice, offer to work around their schedule, and if it’s a larger item, you’ll take the edge if you can offer to drive it away without them delivering it for example (IF that was something they offered). Basically – you want to make it as EASY as possible and smooth. Don’t complicate things. Make sure they know you have cash on you and you’re ready to go. Sell yourself as a person then show them you mean business.
  5. Walk away and get the deal, example Yamaha keyboard with buzzy speakers
    1. Earlier example of the $200 keyboard with the buzzy speakers, I basically told him look, the speakers have this buzz sound, I’m gonna have to pass. At that point he realized and saw that they DID have a buzzy sound, and offered to sell it for $100 bucks. So don’t be afraid to walk away. Often times buyers will stop you and accept your offer just because they want it gone. You’ve just won and sold them on your offer.
  6. Wait it out.
    1. Speed is critical in getting to the deal, but sometimes once you’re there, patience is going to win it for you. One time I was selling a Swarovski crystal ring and bracelet set. This guy came to see it and actually decided to pass – but he did mention that he’s looking to sell HIS car. He had a 2002 Dodge Durango. Being the Flipping Ninja that I am, I inquired about it to see if it might’ve been a good investment for me. The guy said he was selling it for $2,000 the day before, but $1,500 today if I bought it. I waited 3 days. He called me and said $1,000 cash today. If I went forward with it, I was in a position of power in this negotiation and might have even been able to close the deal for $850, then flip the car for an even bigger profit.
  7. Get Creative – Barter Beyond Negotiation
    1. Now when it comes to negotiation – you can REALLY get creative and even barter. Go to page 259 in the blueprint and I’ll give you some crazy, awesome examples of creative negotiations at play. Use them to your advantage. 
    2. Watch what happens when by buyer shows me something
  8. Ignore the crazies who push your buttons, Example, fridge, page 263
  9. Ultimately – remember that negotiation skills are all learnable. Top negotiators are not hard bargainers and tough-minded personalities… they’re actually the opposite. They’re not aggressive and pushy and demanding… Nor do they push people to agreements where both parties aren’t happy. The best negotiators are actually the opposite… Meaning they’re pleasant, warm, kind, friendly, and pretty low-key. When you’re dealing with the true professional negotiator, you don’t even realize there’s a negotiation going on. They’re likable, agreeable, and you just feel comfortable around them. The masters of negotiation are able to immediately… almost build like a certain type of trust where you almost automatically trust them and feel that what they’re asking for is in the best interest of both parties. Try and be that way. Dive into the blueprint for a more detailed overview of this.
