PTM 031 – How to Make Money on Craigslist Reselling Washers and Dryers with Mr. Craigslist Hustle

Part Time Money PodcastToday’s podcast features LaJuan Stoxstill-Diggs, aka Mr. Craigslist Hustle. He knows precisely how to make money on Craigslist. LaJuan was laid off a few years ago and instead of sitting around waiting for another job to fall into his lap, he started hustling. Not that kind of hustling. LaJuan figured out how to use Craigslist to find used washers cheap and turn around and sell them for a handsome profit.

In the interview LaJuan is very candid about his techniques and how you can get started. LaJuan and I discuss his story, how to find good washer and dryer sets, how to sell them for profit, and all the little details that go into this side hustle.

LaJuan didn’t stop with his own gigs. He’s shared his knowledge with the world in the form of his popular ebook, The Craigslist Hustle. Find out all about his book and his success with selling that on Amazon.com in the podcast. Or just hit up LaJuan’s site at www.mrcraigslisthustle.com.

  1. Very interesting story and a great example of entrepreneurship. This man has been forced to find a new occupation, has excelled at it and is not selling his success story to others. Brilliant!
