Facebook, eBay, Marketplace, Mercari, Craigslist—there’s no shortage of apps to buy and sell random stuff.

But if you live and breathe these marketplaces, you can identify opportunities to buy low and sell high. What starts as an exhilarating hobby can turn into a full-time job if you know what you’re doing.

That’s how Rob and Melissa Stephenson make their living. By leveraging their knowledge of certain product categories (home exercise equipment, heavy machinery) and tapping into the internet’s 24/7 global marketplace, they’ve been able to “flip” a wide variety of items, often for 10 to 20 times the profit.

This week on 2 GIRLS 1 PODCAST, Rob and Melissa join Alli and Jen to discuss their journey from a work-a-day family to full-time flippers, making six figures from the comfort of their smartphones.

They share practical advice on how to get started, the rise of the flipping community, and the explosive market demand while everyone’s stuck at home during a pandemic.
