These critical money-making principles were rigorously tested over a 12 month period, and no expense was spared in bringing you an easy to follow, step-by-step system.
My goal with this book was simple: take the functional, profit-generating system in my head and put it on paper so anyone could understand it. I wanted to help others reach the same success I did, but without having to go through all the same trial, error, and extended testing. Even if this is just a simple method for making a few bucks on the side, it’s effective, fun, and attainable for regular folks like you and me. It helped me monetize an otherwise costly hobby, and it can help you too.
In the book, we go beyond the superficial and crunch numbers, analyze graphs, review my personal transactions, and address common mental and emotional challenges. This extra detail and explanation is there to ensure no stone is left unturned. This book was never designed to be one of those eleven-page “ebooks” that are nothing more than lengthy blog posts with price tags. It was important to deliver quality content based on a tested and reliable system.
By the time I’d completed the final draft of this book, it was twelve months and fifty-nine completed deals later, with a grand total of $20,000.00 in gross sales and over $6,000.00 in net profit. With a close colleague of mine achieving similar results, and several acquaintances also having success, there were no doubts about the system’s efficacy or consistency. Funnily enough, there’s nothing really amazing about it either – it’s just a collection of sound business principles that have been around for hundreds of years.
What, then, separates the folks who are successful from those who are not? The successful ones take the time to learn and apply the principles; they take action and execute. Those who are not will read a book, mull it over, set it down, and then not take any steps to implement what they learned.
All of us have been guilty of this at times. How many helpful books and articles have you read that ultimately faded into the background because you never got around to utilizing the information? Whether you were resistant to change, afraid to fail, or hid behind the convenient excuse of being “too busy,” ask yourself: is this where you wish to remain forever – always “learning,” but never truly growing due to a failure to execute?
The truth is that it’s much better to take action, fail, and learn from the process so that we can eventually improve ourselves and succeed. Highly successful businessmen and authors like Eric Ries (The Lean Startup), Mark Divine (The Way of the Seal), and Josh Waitzkin (The Art of Learning) communicate the importance of this in their books, and the term “fail forward fast” has been coined to describe this cycle of action, growth, and learning in many personal development and business circles.
In The Key to Making Money on Craigslist, the irrelevant has already been weeded out for you, maximizing delivery of useable information and minimizing the need to fail forward. You may still run into a few unsuccessful transactions, but when you do, it will simply mean you are executing the system correctly by embracing calculated risks. Better to have a few break-even/loss transactions on the way to success (I had several) than to never get there at all.
If you’ve already read The Key to Making Money on Craigslist, then you probably understand exactly what I am referring to, and by the way thank you for reading my book. If you have not read the book yet, you can start with the free chapter or jump right in if you are ready to start learning. In either case, you are welcome to contact me with questions or for additional help using the contact form on this page. Like I said earlier, even though this is just a simple system for generating extra cash on the side, it is my sincerest hope that it will bring you value in the form of insight, motivation, and success.
