My road to success (Moving Update 2)

Entry posted by uchiha101 · - 7,545 views

This thread will be about my journey to the million dollar comic and the struggles, failures and successes that come with it since many boardies requested it I will not longer post my transactions but try what revat said :). I also have a bunch of inspirational people two of them being Walt Disney and Steve Jobs because I want to be the next rags to riches story not to the degree of Steve Jobs or Walt Disney but I want to make a million dollars buying and selling a comic and making enough money with this venture to never again say I can't afford something :)

 

Thoughts and plans

Sell my comics

Sell IH 180 CGC 5.0

 

Milestones I want to reach

Get my first four figure sale

Yes, I'll probably be using it for another month and see how things go. It's nice to see you again as well.

Gabe - how did your foray into the crypto-currency go?  I really hope you didn't pursue it too hard.

I hope he got into it hard and shorted the eff out of it and made tons of cash.  But if he doesn't understand what the previous sentence means, then I agree with you and hope he didn't pursue it too hard.

Well it's the bear market right now and while it is and crypto's are getting cheaper I'm getting a bit back into comic and video games so that I can buy more

Has your situation changes drastically from what it was on the old boards? Cause my recollection was you couldnt afford much... (I do hope it has changed for the better, but didnt really have any expectations that it was going to change significantly enough to be able to afford to lose money on crypto currency.

Thanks for the kind thoughts. Some of my situations have changed but not all of them.

Employed?

Unemployed?

Living situation? Home with parents, or on your own or with room mates? 

Back to the comic situation, what's the point of GPA for you? Why now?  Do you have the funds to be buying graded books to flip?

Unemployed. My living situation is I'm still with my parents.

The point of GPA now of all times was that I want to buy and sell comics here and there as well as getting consignments. The cryptocurrency market is in a bear market and I want to buy more crypto, the free price guide that I was using became subscription based which I'm not too happy about, I'm adding another stream of side income, and I have a gf I want to see so I need to make a passport and have enough money to fly over  there.

I know you'll ask where I'm getting the money from so I'll answer that now.

Profits from my video games, using my tax refunds, and cryptocurrency.

International GF???????!!!!!  + Unemployed?????!!!!

Pinning your hopes on video games and cryptocurrency?????!!!!

Follow your dreams and love.  But please please please please don't give $$ to your international gf.  I don't know anything about the situation at all, but I don't think I'm the only one who thinks there's a decent chance someone might try to take advantage of you.

PS.  Are you sure the so-called crypto-currency bear market isn't just a death spiral resulting in increased government regulation, law enforcement tracking, and taxation.  Are you reading about all the newest cryptocurrency stuff?

 

PPS.  Also, have you considered just moving to China for a few years and being a 'background white guy' who just hangs out in offices and goes to fancy parties? They get paid ok. You can also teach English on the side.  Google it, its a thing.

Sounds like you're happy Gabe.
Speaking of international GFs, an old friend of mine is returning from the Philippines today after a week long trip to pick out meet his fiancée for the first time. He seemed very happy in his FB pictures.

I thought you owed the government $$$ last time? 

Now that it is a "bear market" for the crypto currency, what is your profit/loss margin on that venture?
