If you’re a football fan, you might be familiar with the term “free agent.” A free agent is any player who isn’t contracted to a team and is free to play with anyone.
But you can also think of someone who has zero commitments to an employer as a free agent. You can live wherever you like, take charge of how each day is spent, and enjoy a low-stress, boss-free income.
Some free agents just pick up odd jobs here and there to supplement their Social Security or make enough to get by. But with the right idea, you can use your time as a free agent to start and grow a business with big income potential—enough to replace a five- or six-figure salary.
One of the best ways to do the latter is importing goods online. I love the import business because it’s easy to understand. Buy something direct from a manufacturer. Raise the price. Resell it. Make a profit. It’s that easy.

All you need is a laptop to get started. A lot has changed in the world of import/export over the years. You no longer need to store inventory, manage customers, build your own website, manage employees. Entrepreneurs around the world have built simple solutions for all these things. For a small investment of just $50 to $500 you can have an online import/export business up and running in less than a few weeks.
Bob Maydonik’s stores are earning him on average $10,000 a month. Bob’s story began when he became frustrated at how small the typical yoga mat was. Once he figured out how to source larger sized mats, he decided to test the waters selling them. As it turns out, demand for bigger yoga mats is high.
Jeff Carley’s stores make him between $8,000 and $12,000 a month. Jeff tells me he could earn more, but he’s happy to work part time, so he can hit the golf course and enjoy a stress-free life the rest of the time.
In her second year of import/export, Caroline Lau made more than $100,000. Caroline started from home and turned her love of scrap-booking into a profitable business, selling high-quality, scrap-booking supplies at a good price.
And they’re not funneling these goods into their homes, or worrying about overstocking their inventory. It’s all handled online and shipped through third-parties. If that’s not a touchdown, I don’t know what is.
