SUMOskinny magazine is the ultimate guide to college life. Part local, part national, and all college.
In order to make the millions you have to be a professional athlete, famous musician, lawyer, surgeon or an entrepreneur, right? Wrong.
Turns out all you have to have a few garage sales... I'm sure many of you have had garage or yard sales just to make some spare change. Aaron LaPedis threw his first garage sale at age seven and has been buying and selling items ever since.
LePedis made his first million by simply selling old crap. LePedis is now writes a monthly column for The Denver Post and hosts a PBS TV show on collectibles. He also has a book called "The Garage Sale Millionaire: Make Money With Hidden Finds From Garage Sales To Storage Unit Options and Everything In Between"? - that's a very long name just for a book that probably sounds like 100% lies.
But maybe it's not all lies. Just like any other business man you know, LaPedis had a few brilliant tactics that now have him carrying millions.
According to the U.S. news and world report, LaPedis said "I believe getting the other person talking starts to bring down the barriers. So anything under $15, I don't believe in pricing it. If there's no price, they're going to ask, "How much is this item?" and your follow-up would be, "What are you willing to pay for it?" They will come back to you with an amount of money and that's where you can start negotiating".
Got to give a lot of credit to such a brilliant idea, looks like I won't need that 9 to 5 any more...
