    I left my part-time work today because my boss is unethical and truly doesn’t care about the vulnerable. My job was selling Assistive Technology Devices to elderly people. Listen, I’m NOT going to choose money over what I think is moral. Not even for millions!

    However, I need to stay proactive and find a job while am studying part-time.

    I don’t know if I should start writing up another CV’s or just start amazon business online. I know a friend of mine friend who is doing pretty well on amazon and is making about 6 figures.
    This is interesting but i still wonder if this is possible?? and if so what product would be good to sell on Amazon?
    What do you think will sell well on Amazon here in our country in the UK??

    Any advice or support would be appreciated my wonderful friends.

    Sell what your friend is, if they are making a six figure salary (really?) then they can afford to share the customer base and still get by on a five figure income.

    Personally, I think it sounds like BS and if you are studying part time I would just get another PT job with a better employer.

    Lol if anyone knew how they would just do it, not advise others on how to do it.

    Finding something that will sell well isn't the problem. Bring able to source the product at a cheap enough price to undercut or match larger existing sellers with more experience of their market is.

    well my style of business is jewellery andsome of the item i am looking at a range from £150 cost and £840 value but i can sell it for £500 happily
    but the big one right now is a sapphire ring but it's made by tiffany and is a very large stone(14ct) and will cost me £175,000 but is worth £310,000 and i'd sell it for £250,000

    Jewellery is wonderful but I think It’s in extremely competitivemarket. Too many people do this. It’s amazing your able to compete and stillmake income on this tho. Shows your very hard worker!!!

    it's not that competitive at the high end where i am costume and silver yes
    another idea would be designerware so luxury handbags are a good one i have sold 3 or 4
    a hermes birkin commissioned the seller got it for £4,000 at auction and i pocketed a 10% commission on it after getting them 15k (£100 in transport to the london store)
    a chanel which i bought with my profit from the above and made £700 over cost
    a stella mccartney i sold for £250 at a cost of £40
    a gucci which cost me £50 and i got £800 for it
    so i spent £1,690 and made £3,250 or a profit of £1,560

    Principles can be very expensive.

    The general rule is don't give up a job till you have got another one.

    There is no magic pill for selling on the Internet. Millions of people are thinking / dreaming the same thing. The only way to compete with millions of people is to have a competitive advantage. No one can just convey to you a competitive advantage on an Internet forum.
