It’s time to increase your product sourcing knowledge! My name is Rob Cyr, and I've been buying and reselling secondary markets goods for a long time. Within the wholesale industry I'm considered an expert when it comes to below wholesale closeouts, customer returns, and excess consumer goods.
Do you have a bricks and mortar or online business? New Venture Media provides one-on-one consultation, in depth written training materials, and several network websites that explain how to purchase retail inventory below traditional wholesale pricing.
So, a little more information about my experience and how I got started:
Travel back in time with me- set the dial to 2002 and hold on tight because at that time I was working as a mid-level manager for a mid-size corporation and it was about to get bumpy! I had a company vehicle, expense account, and an attractive office. Everything was going fine until that fateful day when I learned top brass sold the company to an even larger corporation. Not one of the branch managers were privy to this, so it was a bit of a shock to say the least. I hung in there for about two weeks, but new ownership was not offering much in the way of a restructuring plan. My employees kept jumping ship and soon after, I quit and walked home leaving my company vehicle, status, and income behind.
When I got home I called my wife and told her what happened. With her full support, I carved out a business buying and reselling wholesale merchandise from home...the rest they say is history. Today, I spend time helping on and off-line resellers navigate the treacherous waters of wholesale liquidation merchandise.
As founder of New Venture Media, I'm eager to help answer your questions about product sourcing, specifically within the secondary market. Over the years I have assisted thousands of people with the dream of owning their own profitable retail business- on and off-line. Now it's your turn!
