Second Hand Money

I've been galavanting through Tim Ferriss' new book "Tools of Titans" which weighs a ton....it's almost a motivational lifehacking coffee table encyclopedia.

Two things I've noticed....first that there ain't enough female mentors in the world,....and Two....that
two gals that Tim Ferriss writes about in his book "Tools of Titans" are both involved in selling
second hand goods. Who? Sophia Amoruso who sells both new and vintage stuff....and
Tracy DiNunzio who founded Tradesy sells all things second hand.

Why is this a big deal? Because it wasn't soooo long ago, that "second hand goods" made folks turn their noses up in disdain. Somehow over the past 20 years.....second hand "anythings" have been transformed into a legit cash cow via sites like Ebay and Craigslist and Kijiji. There are now so many thousands of companies whose SOLE revenue comes from selling second hand goods exclusively.

Second Hand Money can turn into BIG MONEY. Don't make the mistake to snub it anymore.
The Thrift store up the street may not be the hangout of the of the rich and famous, but it just might be one of the reasons why some folks, get rich....by counting on second hand money.

  1. Have you ever upcycled something you found for free or really cheap at thrift store? Some folks are great at reupholstering beautiful old french provincial style furniture... The older more antique wooden furniture were not crafted from particle board or laminates....nooo way....sold woods crafted with care and ornate swirling designs. Now I understand why it makes sense to invest in antiques....the older they get....the more money they are worth!
