    Yea I'm 17 and started selling appliances in my

    garage since I was 16. I make about 1000 a week and work for about 5 hours. It's so weird how I make so much but I buy them for 50 bucks a washer and dryer and flip them for 160 plus $20 delivery. Takes literally no effort. Thumbs up for miracles
