Description

I’m so happy to have you here today! Thanks for taking the time to join me. I am fired up and so excited for today’s interview. It’s a special one. I’m interviewing a husband and wife team that has been in business together for years, and they are crushing it right now!  I really love interviewing people whose main goal is their family and wanting to find ways to make money that allow them the flexibility to put their family first. I really open this interview will open your eyes to see what is possible. There are a million different ways that you can make money while making sure that you keep your priorities straight. That is why I love these interviews so much. They are meant to inspire and lift you up in the process.  This couple has been flipping products, and it has become their full-time job. What this means is that they are taking products that they find and reselling them for a profit. Even if this isn’t something you’re interested in doing, you’re still going to learn a lot from their story, so don’t go away!  When you listen to someone else’s story, it always helps to open your eyes and shows you what’s really possible if you work hard and take action. So what are we waiting for? Let’s get right to it!  Where It All Started  When I was a kid, my parents didn’t have a lot of money. So they would always go to yard sales to save money. While they were there, they would buy things and resell them in the classifieds section to make extra money. So you could say that this type of business was distilled in me at a young age.  When Melissa and I got married over fourteen years ago, we started to buy used things and sell them as a side hustle. We both worked, but it was a great way to bring in some extra cash. About five years ago, we were able to start doing this full time and have never looked back.  Before we started flipping full time, I was working as a house inspector, and Melissa was a personal trainer, so this was just a side hustle that we worked on after hours. It was a great way for us to make some extra money. However, once we were pregnant with our third child, Melissa decided it was time to quit her job, and recently after that, my job stopped offering health insurance. So, we decided to start flipping full-time. It really was the best decision that we ever made and has provided us with so much more flexibility than we ever thought possible.  Our Decision To Flip Full Time   At the time, we were both a little scared and unsure of what to expect. Melissa was pregnant, and we didn’t know how things were going to turn out at the time. We were losing health insurance and had to replace both our incomes, so it was very scary. However, because we had done the side hustle for so long, we know that we could make it into a full-time business and knew that it was possible. If we hadn’t been doing that beforehand, it would have been a much harder decision to make sure.  When we started working on our business full time we started doing to focus on freight flipping. This means that we specialize in flipping large items and offering free shipping. This allows us to charge a premium for our products. We’re known best for selling really large products, throwing them on a palette, and shipping them anywhere. We really will ship almost anything.
