Necessity is always the mother of inventions and in every adversity, there is an opportunity. This is the story of a British DJ who took advantage of the Coronavirus pandemic to make money.
The World Health Organization has advised us to be on guard and practice proper personal hygiene by washing our hands regularly and using tissue papers in place of handkerchiefs.
This directive has indeed gone in the favor of DJ Lee Marshall.
Lee Marshall decided to buy these papers in bulk and sell it to people who desperately needed it and was able to make £3,000 (GHS19,772) in just two hours.
He shared how he did it below:
“A supplier messaged us and said they’ve got loads of toilet roll and can’t sell them because hotels aren’t buying at the moment. They’re just sitting in a warehouse,” he said in an interview with Metro UK.
“I looked in the supermarket and they were roughly the same price as an Andrex toilet paper anyway – so we’ve sort of made £3-per-pack on them.
“We kept some back for delivering at night – as we’ve had a lot of people messaging that they can’t reach us. My mate Brett was out until 11.30 pm the day before.
“The last drop-off I did last night, the old lady was scared and left her money by the door. We’ve done so many home deliveries and haven’t charged extra for them.”
