I think I am about six weeks away from launching my drop ship side hustle so I thought it was time for another update. I saw in my first blog about this venture (above) that I had hoped to be up in running by the end of August. It’s now late September and I’m shooting for an early November launch. I am trying not to be discouraged by the delay but just accept it that it takes longer to do things sometimes than you think it will and I want to do it right. Oh, also, it’s 2020 so we should all give each other a break as sometimes just getting out of bed in the morning this year is an accomplishment.

The one thing I have been thinking about as a potential money maker from my original list is drop shipping. In a nutshell, drop shipping is where you sell someone else’s product on your website, when you get the money from the customer, you order it from your supplier at a discounted rate and then supplier ships the product directly to the customer. The beauty of this method of selling is that you don’t create or build the products and you never have to carry any inventory.
