I'm all for small businesses.  I've been gifted with the entrepreneurial spirit.  Not the talent, mind you...but I've got TONS of spirit. My grandparents on my mom's side both owned their own businesses.  Grandpa ran a multi-level marketing company called Shaklee.  Grandma owned a restaurant/gas station.  Mom & Dad started a t-shirt business which Mom still runs to this day. When I was younger I would set up lemonade stands and do "toys only" rummage sales.  I'd sell bootlegged Simpsons shirts in middle school. When I was bit older I would sell X-Rated movies from the trunk of my car after a remote at Lumpy's.

It's called knowing your audience.

So I'm always on the lookout for the next business opportunity.  While I don't believe this one is for me...it COULD be for you young startups looking to flip product online.

I found this on Craigslist:

1,000 Belts ($10,000 Retail Value) ALL OFFERS Welcome

You could buy 1,000 belts for $3,200 ($3.20 each) then flip them on FB marketplace or set up a Shopify store and sell them for $10 each in order to make $6,800.
Or you could listen for a code word and get a shot at $10,000 without having a room full of 1,000 belts that you have to explain to your family.
