In the last post I promised you some specifics in the figures we have created so far 9 months into this venture. They may not be sexy yet but they are only growing and that is the point. Compounding takes a little time. In this case, a whole year to 18 months! That’s not 30, 20 or even 10 years, that’s one year and we only expect to really see the magic of compounding accelerate from here on as it has already started.
Very often people give up when millions of dollars aren’t created in the first month. By the way in the next 4 months I would ask you to keep an eye on the specific figures by month 13. We have been working in the background on a project that is sure to blow the doors off what we have created financially so far with book arb and it’s still within book arb. We promise to show you how to do that too. More on that to come.

As I’ve stated before our figures will be at $100,000 in sales in less than 18 months from a start of $1,000 and that’s without the added project we have underway that directly relates to this system. Now that’s a great return on investment by any standard.
And that’s pretty typical within our book arb community. Myself and Tom do not have any special skills that we are applying to this and there are others who have done way better than us and some others who are growing it gradually and consistently. That’s the point. It is possible to start this system where you are and to grow it at your own pace. Who cares if it takes a little longer than 18 months to create $100,000 in sales?
To date we have created $6,544.29 in sales. Now that’s more than every other year altogether in business online over 10 years.
In the month of May alone we invested $805.19, selling 81 books for a total of $2,362.42 and after all fees we got our investment of $805.19 back plus we made an additional $268.03 in clear profit in less than 30 days. Think about that in scalable terms.
Again, I add we have learned so much more even since May, it’s now July as I write this, and the books we are choosing now are even more profitable. We are still growing and becoming prosperous. That is the sweet spot of any business and we love that!
Did I mention that as international sellers we do all this on-line without ever touching a book ? We are a book store who never sees our books. We do of course employ a prep centre to have the books we sell checked and upgraded for quality, ensuring our customers receive great value. The prep fee is also built into our figures and we still make a profit.
We know from our research that before we ever buy a book there is high demand for it. We are consistently honing our skills so that we can sell our books in less than 30, 60, 90 days or more depending on the profit margins we wish to make with each one. It is insanely easy for us to make money using this system.
“To get rich, you have to be making money while you’re asleep.” ~David Bailey ~
Having our money work for us 365 days a year 24/7 means we no longer have to work very much at all. Is there any job we could do where we could work 24/7? Obviously not, which is why it is paramount that we have our money work for us. As I’ve said before the feeling we get waking up every morning with more money acquired whilst we slept is priceless.
This system is not the only way to get rich. That’s a given. But for us it is the most effective way we have seen for anyone to become financially free within a short amount of time that requires no college education, no special skills, no internet marketing expertise or a lot of money to get started.
Another bonus for us is that we didn’t build this system. Jon Shugart & Luke Sample did. We just apply it. Could it be more simple? Probably not.
Next I will share what I wish I had known when I started book arbitrage and the ways you can benefit from knowing that starting out.
