Ryan Grant, 29, of Minneapolis, quit his accounting job in September of 2013 to start a full-time business buying cheap items from Walmart and selling them on Amazon and now he makes millions. Seriously. And he’s been making serious money doing this since he was in college.

While at Winona State University, twice a year Grant would set up textbook buyback events then list the books on Amazon and make a tidy profit of up to $10,000 a year.

Read that again… bro made up to $10,000 a year while he was still in college. Drinks on him… every day.

After college, while working at his accounting job, Grant decided to expand to flipping items other than textbooks as a nice little side hustle.

CNBC spoke to Grant about how his side hustle turned into a multi-million business

“I was putting in about 10 hours per week and I was making in the ballpark of $1,000 per month,” he recalls. Once he was able to make the same kind of money reselling on Amazon as he had made at his accounting job, in September 2013, he quit.

“I was confident that if I had full-time hours to dedicate to selling online that I would be able to more or less scale that up,” Grant says. Just three months later, in December, he notched $9,000 in profit on over $25,000 in total sales.

“Making that amount of money in one month was a big boost in my confidence to be able to scale up further from there,” he says.
