Micro Fix and Flip?
OPTION # 1
That’s right! How about the XBox 360 for example? You can buy a “course” online for under $100 which will teach you how to repair the popular game box. You can buy them “Dead” for peanuts – just run ads that say you have cash and you’ll come get it! You determine what a good one is worth by checking out “Completed Items” on eBay – flip it, and get the flipping habit. It beats working for someone, every time! What’s the future? You can easily make game box flipping and repair your career! Look at all the different game boxes on the market – is gaming going away? “Probably not”, ya think? THIS is a great business idea! It’s a fantastic job, where you are the boss.

What would you give for a late model piece of expensive home exercise equipment? Would you pay $600 for a $5,000 exer-cycle or treadmill? If it has a minor problem, you might pay less. In good shape on eBay it may bring $1400 to $1600. How’s that for a flip? You can also become an expert at repairing home exercise equipment – the demand is real, and huge. This business idea can make a solid career for the next 20 years if you want it!
Let’s go back to electronics – tiny electronics.
OPTION # 3
You can buy broken iPhones, iPods, and iPads all day long because they break! Unlike a “lemon car” that breaks all the time, people still LOVE their Apple devices – and that’s why there is a flip market with these. Broken, a 3G might be worth $60. Fixed? $200. What does it cost to fix it? Well, there’s about 7 things that go wrong, but most of the time it’s broken glass. Your cost for the digitizer, glass and the gasket is under $15. If you belong to a “parts buyer’s club” your cost is about $6. Just learn the repair, and start buying broken Apple devices, repair them and flip them! Now, please realize, learning to repair these does not involve learning about electronics – no meters are involved, really! In fact, you can learn all the iPhone and iPod repair secrets you’ll need for under $100. The future expansion of this business idea is stunning! Make your job today.
OPTION # 4
Going back to “Big” we have spas. You know, bubbling hot water and thrusting jets set in a fiberglass tub? New, they are easily $3,000 to $7,000. Five to seven years later, in the backyard of a home in foreclosure? Try $0 to $400! What are they worth on eBay? Check it out, but cleaned up, and flipped? They can typically bring $1,500 and more. This is a great, simple, and very profitable business idea. What could be a better job than this?
Are we flipping crazy? Maybe we all should be…
Think about it: Most every business from tiny to totalitarian makes money by doing some version of the “flip.” If a business imports baby bottles from Bang Kok, or bicycle locks from China, the company profit is made in a flip, right? So why are we all fixated on finding financial fulfillment from flipping frankfurters? FLIP something with a profit in it, and just keep flipping! Stick with one thing and become a total flipping expert at that, or move on and flip ever bigger things. After all, that’s all Donald Trump does – he’s just another flipper, isn’t he? The KEY is to not be an ignorant flipper. If you know the secrets to what you’re flipping, you control the game, your life, and your job.
