My daughter is Depop famous.
Don’t know what that means? It means that I am a fortunate mother whose three teenage daughters find most of their clothing from thrifting apps, primarily one called Depop. Our mailbox is busy with a flow of clothing, shoes, and accessories going in and out on the daily. The best part? I don’t need to budget for their clothes. As a single mom, I am grateful that my girls are enterprising, know the value of a dollar, and always manage to look fabulous while being self-sustaining. I’m a lucky mom, right?
As a divorced parent, I am always on the lookout for ways to earn extra money so that I can share my methods with other women looking to earn a significant income. I find a lot of my inspiration from Millennials: I like to take things that Millennials love to do, and translate that knowledge into utility for Gen X and Baby Boomer women.
So, I wanted to explore how my daughters’ techniques in fashion flipping could be applied to women around my age (47) who need to earn a livable income while maintaining a flexible schedule.
And here, at the corner of flexibility and a healthy income, we enter the world of Flea Market Flipper’s most adorable real-life young couple, Rob and Melissa. I met Rob and Melissa in an online group from an e-course that we took together (Making Sense of Affiliate Marketing), and I immediately knew that I wanted to learn more about what they do.
Rob agreed to a phone interview with me, and I think it will intrigue and inspire you to take the next step, actually get your own side hustle off the ground, and start earning a living. Rob and Melissa — who turned buying and selling items into an income of $42,000 in 2015, at just 5 to 15 hours per week — have their own online course that you can join from their website, or start by reading their e-book. Listen in to my conversation with Rob:
