By James BrownsteinBeverly Hills, California—A few weeks ago, James Brownstopped in for a visit with his friend’s family.
They were having dinner in his hotel room when a man approached and introduced himself as “Mark.”
The conversation was about hookah and the way he liked to make it, but it was all about the money.
“You guys have to start making money off your hookahs,” the man told Brownstein.
He explained that, with the help of an old friend, he had purchased two sets of pipes and began selling them at the mall.
He was willing to buy them for around $3,000 each.
Brownstein was stunned.
What the hell is going on?
“It was just so crazy, but that was the deal,” Brownstein said.
“I’ve always been like this guy, I like to make money off my hookahs.
I like making money.
And that was like the last thing I needed to hear.”
It was then that Brownstein decided to get his hookah experience, and he was hooked.
He bought two sets in September and sold them for a total of $15,000 in December.
Now, Brownstein makes more than $30,000 a year selling hookahs at stores such as Walmart, Target, and Home Depot, and even sells them to tourists and members of the media at his hotel.
It’s a lucrative business.
And Brownstein, who is currently pursuing his bachelor’s degree in journalism, said he has never had to sell hookahs before.
“People ask me what it’s like to sell something for a million dollars,” he said.
He added that he has always made the best-selling hookahs, but he had never thought about it that way.
“If I could sell a hundred hookahs and make $20,000, that’s a pretty good living,” he told Quartz.
Brownsteins hookah business is now so lucrative that he recently started selling them on the Internet.
His first sales were on Craigslist, where he says he sold about 10,000 hookahs in the first week.
In the last month alone, he sold more than 10,600.
Brownstops business model is simple.
He sells his hookahs on eBay and through a number of other online outlets, such as VapeWild and Amazon.
He’s even opened a business in Hong Kong that he plans to open in the coming months.
“It’s an online store,” Brownstout said.
But it’s not the only way to make a living selling hookah.
Other people who want to get into the business also sell them online.
The same goes for people who have no business making money, and the internet is also a good place to make cash.
The biggest advantage to hookah sales is that they’re a quick and easy way to build a following.
The more you can get people hooked, the more people you can have online, Brownstoes business manager says.
“And you’re going to get the best bang for your buck,” Brownston said.
As for the potential profits that come with his business model, Brownstein says he is not interested in making money from his sales.
He says he just wants to make the best hookahs he can, and for people to see him as a person who can make money from them.
“The only reason I’m making money is because I’m a cool dude and I’m selling my hookah, and it’s cool that people are attracted to that,” Brownsteis business manager said.
