I am in the gemstone mining business. I am major shareholder of a mine in south east asia. We sell facetted rubies and sapphires.
In my line some of the people are home business owners and they work as gemstone brokers for me, 1-2k is easily reachable for them, some of them make this in a week. They have clients and get the orders and i pay them commissions. Some as you say work online, some take orders at shows or get order via different ways. I don`t question their ways and i send the orders to their clients.
There is one guy that buys sapphires and rubies from me every month, he started out with a cart and ended up with his own store, it took him 5 years but he is doing well. What he does is buy gemstones from me usually minimum required and sold them on the cart cheaper than anyone in the mall, because he bought from the miners(us).
He made money by selling dirctly to the consumer, he started by selling beryllium gems cheaply by the carat which was around US $18 per carat but he buys from me at US $6.50
He make 300% profit every shipment.
If want to franchise off me, i can allow you to do so where you use my company`s name,
see the below thread for details
I will provide your entire first inventory for free, around 400 carats of gems
If want easy money, there is none, but if are willing to work hard, this business may pay off like a jackpot for you as it has for others.
By the way what is your main language?
Let me know
