Why are you paying to store stuff you don't want?

People love to shop.  The adrenaline rush of purchasing a new item is addictive.  Americans especially buy more stuff than they need, or even truly want.  So after the "high" from a new purchase wears off, they sell it or donate it, right?  Rarely. 

With over 46,000 storage facilities in the United States, and over six billion (yes, with a B) spent each year to store stuff that isn't used, we have proven that the barrier to quickly, effortlessly shed the weight of our excess possessions is just too high.  Garage sales are a hassle and make us look bad.  Donations fall to the bottom of the priority list.  Online sales are scary.  So we take the easiest path - we store.  In our garage, in our basement, in our overflowing closets, in our backyard sheds.  Yes, we even give our money to others to store our things on their land, because we have run out of room.

What if there was a way to get rid of the things you don't want without any effort?  You would be payed cash, no haggling, hassles, or headaches.

Pick up the phone and call me, text me, or email me.  I know you can do it.  You do it every day.

The concept for my business is simple.  I sell other people's things for them.  We split the revenue from the sale.  Since my experience and skillsets are in marketing, sales, talking with people, negotiating, and closing a deal, I don't mind doing what others fear like the plague.  At the end of the day, my customers have more money in their pocket, don't have to look at "that thing" anymore, and feel their lives are a bit freer because the weight of their stuff is lighter.  And I get payed to do what I enjoy doing - talking with people and experiencing new challenges every day.

I need to grow stronger in social media, online marketing, and photography.

My overhead is practically zero until I need to hire business partners.

My customer base is endless, until America isn't affluent anymore.

My market is global.

I'd love your comments, suggestions, and wisdom.
