Open a BL Store for a living?!
i´m an AFOL for almost 6 Years now, during that time-span i´ve bought and sold a lot of Lego-Stuff for fun and to support the Hobby a bit. I´ve parted out sets and sold single Bricks, and i´ve sold some Sealed EOL´ed sets so i´m not a complete Noob ;)
I´ve been eyeing with the Idea of a Full-Time BL Store for quite some time but never had the guts to do so!
So my question to the (succesful) BL-Store Owner out there, is it even possible to run a Full-Time BL Store and make a living out of it? Is it possible to do so without any employees? I really don´t want to ask for any "secret ingredients" of a succesful BL-Store, i would just like to know if it´s woth the hassle in the end!
Currently i make a living as a DJ, so i mainly work on Weekends, means i do have a lot of "free-time" during the week, so time wouldn´t be a problem.
It´s just that i would have to invest heavy in the beginning to build up stock and i have no idea how many orders (with Pieces) you need in a week to live from it?
Any help is very much appreciated! I´m from Germany, so i guess most sellers who are active here wouldn´t be affected if i open a Full-Time Store ;)
