your side hustle

Rum, beer, women, movies, nice websites, gaming, etc., without interrupting the flow of martial threads.

Are you stocking and shipping on your own? I actually don't really mind this, but I don't know that I'd do it to any large extent.

I am transitioning to that model, from having gotten a start selling one-offs. The trouble with drop shippers is that their reputation is not riding on the sale--mine is--so any delays or screwups on their end impact me.
I define internal martial art as unusual muscle recruitment and leave it at that. If my definition is incomplete, at least it is correct so far as it goes.

Yeah I think you're right. I'm definitely going to dabble a little here and see how it goes. I don't know why I find it to be fun, but I do.

A point I find useful: Your products should be things you like and have a thorough understanding of, things you would buy yourself, for then you understand your customer's interests and concerns.

I think you're right. This way it's also my fun hobby and less of the "grind"/hustle. My soccer team bought a bunch of replica shirts from China, super cheap. Takes about a month to get them, and you never know how high quality they'll be. These were pretty good, so I could probably sell the extras for about 3x what we paid. I have no idea if that would scale, or if I could tolerate the pains of it, but I'll get around to trying it.
