Financial Breakthroughs – Day 1

by | Apr 11, 2024 | Personal Development

I am currently documenting the journey of how I got back on my feet financially.

With that, here’s my update for April 11, 2024.

I Sold My Nintendo 3DS & Game Collection

This was not a hard sale, especially at the price I was selling it at. This earned me a few hundred dollars.

I probably could have sold it for more piecemeal, but then there’s no telling how long it may have taken to get what each game was worth. Still, I learned something from that.

Either way, I was surprised to find how popular handheld consoles are right now. And people still pay a premium for the games.

Nintendo botched the eShop and basically admitted it by shutting it down, so it’s amazing to see that there are still so many loyalists.

But if there’s one thing they did right with their marketing, it’s scarcity. There is a secondary market for the games, but if you want to buy games brand new, you’re still talking about $40 a pop. DS games can go for a lot more, especially rare ones!

I Listed 10 Xbox 360 Games for Sale

None have sold yet, but they have generated a bit of interest already.

Compared to DS or 3DS, you can’t expect to charge much for Xbox 360 games, but I did find that some were worth more than others.

If, for whatever reason, you’d like to explore everything I’m selling, you can check out my Facebook Marketplace profile.

I Asked Someone Whether They Wanted Me to Ghostwrite Their Book

Of course, it may turn into a ghostwriting contract, so I can’t tell you who it is.

But one thing I know for sure is that I only need a few of these contracts per year to keep me warm at night (though no doubt they are a lot of work).
