This week, Scanner Monkey member, Pam D, amazed us all when she shared that she had totaled her car and had gone sourcing on her BIKE!

She then amazed us all by posting a picture of her sourcing trip. After expressing our happiness that she was safe and sound and our condolences about her car we were amazed by her incredible commitment and dedication to her business and improving her life.

She simply replied,

I asked Pam a few questions about her background and business situation.

She has been selling on Amazon for 2 years after selling on eBay. She sources mostly via retail arbitrage with some online arbitrage as well. She sells “very part time” as she is “lucky enough to have a full time job that I love, designing lights for concerts, dance, theater, and corporate events”. She sells about $3K – $5k per month. She does it for the “fun and the thrills” and she loves the “side benefits” such as no longer having any debt. She has also saved for retirement, and she is buying a new (used) car to replace her totaled one, which she is able to pay cash for. She plans to do some remodeling on her house in the next year which she also will pay cash for. Her side hustle is both joyful and profitable. 

She loves being a part of the Scanner Monkey tribe! “I love the camaraderie within the tribe! It seems like there’s less negativity within the group, and more people willing to help if someone needs some answers.

She also hangs out with her poodles, Bocelli and Willoughby and loves to camp and fish. Her favorite food is frozen blueberries with milk and coconut syrup.

We are so proud to have her as one of our Scanner Monkeys! Thanks Pam!
