I just broke my record. 550$ in one day. Actually in one hour.

I'm very happy about that, but its not very steady yet. In fact its so unsteady that I still classify as poor. Self employment is the way to go though I think. Even if I can't afford proper marketing yet.

Oh yea, definitely. I think I'm going for the 1000-1200$ range, custom built.

Now I just have to manage to save most of the money I make so I'll have enough when the time comes.

I guess it could have been a car that I bought from a guy for a grand and turned around and sold it same day to someone else for $3500 after replacing a $.01 cotter pin on the wastegate.

Most I have made in a month was about $6500 after taxes, the norm was $4000 after taxes.

I don't recall precisely. Way back, when I was in sales I got the odd decent commission cheque. Two hour pitch for a timeshare sale would get me a commission cheque of about £200 -£500 depending on size of the sale. Didn't like the job though. Most of the people I persuaded to go for it would have been much better just getting themselves ad hoc holidays like everyone else, and usually couldn't really afford what they wanted to buy.

Persuading people to buy things they don't need and can't afford is a shitty way to put bread on yor table :P


More recently I got a cheque from my university *smiles* I won a prize of £100. Meant more to me than any £500 commission cheque :)

I do landscape jobs that exceed $2000. Some times I get them done in a day. I uslay do the estimate weeks prior though. But all said after mats I uslay net arounf half the total estimate. Most recently I mad a large raised bed edged with spanish jumbo cobblestones some nice hostas and filled it in with pachysandra. Came out beautiful! I charged $1600 and took home about $750. The job took 8 hours to complete but with all the talking about this and that I had to do with the costomer it took a week! hours worth of work call talk rince repeat! I would done it in a day but she was a pain in the kester!

Grass planting almost always get done in a day and depending on size pays around 1k per job(net $650). While i dont do that every day( i do got the reg maintanance lawncuts+) I do get a few done a month during the season!

Depends, we talking legit or under table.

Legit 23,700$, commission from a vlcc sale my firm did, and thats just 0.5% (firm gets 2%) which is mine because me > them at contract law.

Its good to be a broker when goods in question are worth up to a billion $.


Good sales like that dont come along often tho, if only.

Arguably best jobs atm are on offshore installations.

Even a toolpusher (lowest rank requires no education) makes bout 700$ a week in the north sea. Better yet, even that rank gets 1 month on 1 off (paid) rotation, so life is good.

Only catch is, well its the north sea, you will likely die when that 8m wave crashes into your rig if maintenance is not tip top.

Superintendants can make upwards 10grand a week, net, 2 weeks on 2 weeks off.
