Hi Gordon,

My feeling is that... if you have knowledge you've gained from ONLINE selling and marketing... you can take that OFFLINE and make a "killing"...

The reason why is... less competition...

Instead of competing against "the world"... you're competing against just those in your local area...

I think I'm going to do more offline too...

Best wishes,


P.S. This recent article in the New York Times tells us that the typical "rich person" is not a dot-com or Web 2.0 or even Web 3.0 zillionaire... It's the owner of a regional (i.e. offline) business...

The Rich Are Not Who We Think They Are. And Happiness Is Not What We Think It Is, Either.

My local BIG flea market, the HARTVILLE FLEA MARKET (one of the best in the world) is back to full swing, I look forward to the Memorial Day weekend, if the weather holds, I'll be down there shopping for bargains.

As we get back into pre covid normalcy, don't forget a flea market, or get back to estate and garage sales, lots of stored value to be found there, and think of it as a buyer's "platform" where you can place those goods on.

A lot of OFF LINE is doing great, as I mentioned in Mail Order/Circular thread, or the Cash Gifting/Crowd funding one.

Hope you all have some OFF LINE side hustles going, not too much time, but a big return on investments.

Have fun at your local flea market and make it a profitable day too.
