Retail arbitrage as a foot in the door.


Ken is a normal guy just like many of the TAS listeners.

Those steps enabled him to get some cash coming in to begin looking toward his own private label products. What happened for Ken can happen for anyone who is willing to do the work to make it happen. It’s a great example of hard work and action taking, so be sure you listen to Ken’s exciting story.


He found an amazing opportunity on Craigslist.


Ken was scrolling through the online classified site Craigslist one day and found a lot of discontinued or closeout stickers that he thought sounded interesting. He took a chance and bought all 1000 sticker packets for $65. It was that $65 investment that he was able to sell on Amazon for a profit of $1,100. It’s an example of how there are opportunities everywhere, you just have to know how to look for them and take advantage of them. It happens by taking action.
