I'm now falling into a regular schedule in my new role at work. It's my second week in my new role, with my new hours and I've mainly got two days in the week off, starting this week. I've divided this up to one day earning money and the other for setting up the business.
This will start this weekend or next week with finishing off the garage conversion into my home office. It's probably the best first place to start movng towards having the business up and running. When it's decorated, made to look like an office and weather proof, I'll have a space to be able to sit away from the hustle and bustle of family life for periods of time to concentrate on getting stuff done. Plus insure I'll find more things in the garage to sell on eBay, to bring in a little more money.
Yesterday was a money-making day with mystery shopping at the following-
A specialist retailer
A toy retailer
An entertainment provider
In all, the fees earnt were more than I would have earnt in a similar day at work, and it took me less time, got me some products and was more interesting.
Today has been a day for getting things done around the house. I've cleaned windows, painted a ceiling, touched up other paint, changed a photo frame and sorted out the porch. I want the house robe fully up to scratch with all maintenance issues before I start the business, as I won't have spare time to devote to this then.
I've also listed several items for sale in eBay and Amazon today - unused video games and books I've already read.
Time to look in the mystery shop websites to see if there are any available ships for my days off next week!
