The Challenge August 3, 2006

Posted by eburgess in The Challenge.

Two of my friends (Pat and Vance) cornered me a couple of weeks ago to tell me about this contest they were starting and wanted to know if I wanted in. Of course I said yes! Then, I asked what the contest was.

It’s actually pretty simple:

  1. Start with $50 worth of stuff around the house.
  2. Sell it.
  3. Use the $50 to make more money using any legal/moral/ethical way possible.
  4. Continue by using the proceeds towards making more money.
  5. The first one to $100,000 wins.

Like I said, pretty simple.

About a week later, after finally deciding on some of the basic ground rules, we officially started to contest.

The next day, a Saturday, I spent some time looking around the house for something to sell, that I thought would sell quickly. I decided to sell a remote control for my Sony Vaio computer that I was no longer using. Here’s a nice picture:

I threw it up on ebay and it actually sold in a couple of days! Suh-weet! I was $10 richer, and on my way.
