Have you ever wanted to make money online, but weren’t sure how to get started? Hey, everybody, Kate Warne here. I’ve made my living online for 14 years now, and I can tell you this, it’s a great feeling being able to sit back and watch that cash roll in. But it wasn’t always that way. When I first got started selling on eBay all of those years ago, every day was a challenge. I was never sure where my next buck was coming from, or if I’d have enough to make the next rent check. Is any of this starting to sound familiar? Selling online is a bit like taking a giant roller-coaster ride, especially in the beginning. Money comes in, sometimes in trickles, and sometimes in surges. Your goal is to get to that point where you can keep bringing in a steady cash flow. I knew I was there when my PayPal account racked up a steady $3,500 to $4,000 every week. Getting there took me three years, and a lot of changing things around, and switching up my inventory, but I made it work. My goal with this book is to help you get started, choose those first items to sell, and help you over some of the rough spots. Here are a few of the areas you will learn about: Selling products on eBay. Selling services on Fiverr Selling crafts on Etsy Running your own local employment website Selling your online training and consulting program This opportunity is not going to make you a million dollars. It’s not going let you quit your day job, not right away anyhow. But it will probably help you make the payment on a new house, or that new Beamer you’ve been eyeing for the last several years. What are you waiting for? Scroll on up, and hit the buy-now button. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Lisa Valdini. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/018809/bk_acx0_018809_sample.mp3.

Soon to be an HBO Documentary Series Introduction by Gillian Flynn Afterword by Patton Oswalt A masterful true crime account of the Golden State Killer - the elusive serial rapist turned murderer who terrorized California for over a decade - from Michelle McNamara, the gifted journalist who died tragically while investigating the case. ´´You´ll be silent forever, and I´ll be gone in the dark.´´ For more than 10 years, a mysterious and violent predator committed 50 sexual assaults in Northern California before moving south, where he perpetrated 10 sadistic murders. Then he disappeared, eluding capture by multiple police forces and some of the best detectives in the area. Three decades later Michelle McNamara, a true-crime journalist who created the popular website TrueCrimeDiary.com, was determined to find the violent psychopath she called ´´the Golden State Killer´´. Michelle pored over police reports, interviewed victims, and embedded herself in the Online communities that were as obsessed with the case as she was. At the time of the crimes, the Golden State Killer was between the ages of 18 and 30, Caucasian, and athletic - capable of vaulting tall fences. He always wore a mask. After choosing a victim - he favored suburban couples - he often entered their home when no one was there, studying family pictures, mastering the layout. He attacked while they slept, using a flashlight to awaken and blind them. Though they could not recognize him, his victims recalled his voice: a guttural whisper through clenched teeth, abrupt and threatening. I´ll Be Gone in the Dark - the masterpiece McNamara was writing at the time of her sudden death - offers an atmospheric snapshot of a moment in American history and a chilling account of a criminal mastermind and the wreckage he left behind. It is also a portrait of a woman´s obsession and her unflagging pursuit of the truth. Framed 1. Language: English. Narrator: Gabra Zackman, Gillian Flynn - introduction, Patton Oswalt - afterword.
