$500 weekend. my strategy.

After a busy three day weekend, I managed to make $500 for the first time ever! No magic spells or secret sauce.

This was my Poshmark strategy:

β€’ focus on an item you enjoy reselling

β€’ check out the market and do your research. Check out blogs, or any trending sites and see what’s hot in style and what is selling well. πŸ”₯

β€’ get out there in the wild and find that item or something similar, but still on trend and selling well. Make sure you want to make 3-4x for the item you are purchasing to resell.

β€’ check comps! check comps! check comps! πŸ’° check out items that sold and also click on ‘just in’ so you know when it was sold last and/or how fast your hot cakes are selling for.

β€’ take great photographs

β€’ give the item a proper title for top rank visibility! πŸ‘€ πŸ‘€

β€’ Brand/Color/Item/Size

β€’ give detail descriptions

β€’ have a competitive reselling price- make sure you have room to negotiate and still come out in the positive.

β€’ offer 10% off and discounted shipping to buyers that like your item.

β€’ make the sale! Pack em and ship em!

Hope you find some value in this blog. These are just SOME of many strategies out there, but discretion: this is what has worked for me over the past month since I changed my strategy.

Let me know if you have any awesome strategies you would like to share. Feel free to DM me on Instagram.

muster up the courage!

Today was a big day for me!

After months of contemplating with myself, I finally mustered up the courage to finally talk to my best friend about reselling full time. My best friend is my husband. As pragmatic as he is, he completely understood where I was coming from and heard me out completely and fully without feeling any type of discouragement.

Reselling can be scary, it’s true. The unknown is inevitable vs. a steady, streaming paycheck when working for corporate America. Taking this leap has made me feel like the opportunities are endless. It is a risk that I am willing to take and I am no longer fearful. What will be in store for me next? We shall see.

If your ducks are all lined up or even if they are not but you know with hard work and tenacity, you will get there, then why not? Why not do something you love full force with blood, sweat and tears. Blood, sweat and tears that you are willing to take on for yourself and not for someone else.

I am scared, I am excited and I have a long way to go with proving myself. My husband is giving me a trial run. He knows the numbers are there, but can I make it consistent? Again, we shall see.

Stay tune. So much has yet to unravel and I am coming in strong and swinging hard!

Batter up!

Do not give up!

Reselling will ALWAYS have its ups and downs no matter what. The key to overcome this is to continue to be consistent. Consistently list, consistently share, consistently be active. Work hard, play hard, get rewarded is the name of the game. Focus on the end goal and it will pay off.

May madness!

Good morning! Happy Friday and happy 1st of May! What a roller coaster it has been over the past month! I feel like we entered an alternative universe and the old norm no longer exist! What is the deal, Lucille? 🧐

New month means new goals. April was good to me towards the end when I decided to get my act straight with reselling and put my couch potato skills to good use. Amid this pandemic the world is facing, I decided to quit listening to the news for many reasons including the sake of my health. Panic attacks are no longer part of my daily routine where my husband constantly has to calm me down. Positive energy is the best vitamin for me.

I get my daily dose of my awesome group of reseller friends. Homeschooling with my son has been so fun. Even I am learning something new!

Life in the quarantine world is good. This home body gal is going to make things happen!

Because going out thrifting is not available. I went online shopping and invested some of my money into some good quality inventory to curate my poshmark closet, which is what I’ve been focusing on since the beginning of the year. By invested, I mean I paid up. And by paid up, I mean I spent some serious buku. None of which came from my stimulus check, of course! 😏🀨

I created yet another set of goals for May, one which I am proud to achieve because I discovered the power of waking up early and accomplishing It all before 9:00 am. Ok, so it’s no discovery. Not a morning person? No need to be. If 5:00 am is too early, try 6, 7 or 8 am. Whatever time you can get in to be alone at peace where you can focus on your tasks.

I have a wild four year old child and knowing him, his wake up time is around 8:30 am. Which means, I need to get up between 5:00-5:30 to get my day started which includes a nice warm cup of lemon water, some poshing, relisting, working out, shipping out packages, some good reading, and a delicious cup of joe.

Whatever you can do to get your day done to feel one ounce of accomplishment is all it takes. Give it a try and you will feel great before the day even gets started. A food for thought because I appreciate you. I appreciate you reading this and wish nothing but the best for each and every one of you.

You’ve got this! πŸ’ͺ🏼
