flipping furniture to financial freedom

Furniture Flipping doesn’t have to be a hobby.

Last August I began flipping furniture as a way to earn some extra money. At the time, I just wanted some extra cash to put towards home renovations. But, a few months later I made a huge decision that would have a significant impact on our finances.

Hey, I’m Jess.

I’m currently a mechanical engineer by day, and furniture flipper by night. I started flipping furniture in August of 2021 to earn extra money for house renovations. However, by October I came to the tough decision that engineering wasn’t for me, and I needed to make a change.

To grad school.

After some research, I decided to apply to a local college for a graduate program in architecture- something I’ve been interested in pursuing for a few years now. Well, in February I was accepted into grad school. Knowing I’d likely need to quit my job to go back to school full time, I began working harder than ever to make money with furniture flipping.

A crazy goal.

The first semester of grad school will cost roughly $10,000, so that’s my first goal. So far, I’ve only made $550 towards my $10k goal. I’m a long way off with just a few months left, but I know flipping furniture is a realistic way to earn that extra money.

Sharing the journey.

Whether you’re contemplating going back to school, making a career change, or have a huge financial goal- furniture flipping can get you there. And anyone can do it. Check out my blog posts and resources for getting started with furniture flipping. If you have any questions, let me know!
