When was the last time you heard the excuse “I don’t have the money”?
It’s such an easy phrase to throw out. On a surface level, it may work temporarily to relieve the pressure of making a big life decision at the moment. But what if you dug a bit deeper into the conversation and helped someone you know see if there was a way to find the money?
You might find that this is an opportunity to help change the direction of their lives dramatically. This resource I am going to share with you below is just another option you can bring up if borrowing the money or taking a loan just is not a solution.
The other option is to sell their stuff!
Stuff has many different meanings but, in this case, I am referring to any type of luxury goods. That means clothes, shoes, handbags, watches, and jewelry, and home items. Yes, many of these things we live our lives in carrying some value, and a company called The RealReal is making it their business since 2011 by helping people consign items to their database of 20 million shoppers all over the world!
Anyone can get in touch with their local Luxury Managers and start the process for free. The Luxury Managers will collect the items, pay for shipping, and do all of the authentication, photography, and copywriting so you can sit back and watch your merchandise from the ‘My Sales’ webpage they set up for you! The company went public in 2019 by taking the classic consignment shop business model and turning it into an online marketplace for designer goods.
The items have to be in good or excellent condition. The RealReal does take vintage pieces so the range is wide as to what can be sold. Another bonus is they do all the work for you and pay with a direct deposit once the items sell.
The RealReal is the number one online platform selling authentic luxury goods and their buyers trust their strict authentication process which consists of a team of over 200 luxury experts, gemologists, and horologists inspecting every item that is sent in.
One of their core values is also helping the fashion industry become more sustainable. This large-scale effort to recirculate luxury goods that were meant to live a second life continues to grow year over year.
Who knows, it could be just the right way for you or someone you know to find the money and move on with their lives legally and personally.
