I was looking for the right business opportunity after leaving the Army and found the cash for gold business. I gave it a try. There was little information available, though, so the startup was a struggle. However, my business, Metal Man, was soon thriving and well-reputed.

When I left the gold buying business, I wanted to help others who were interested in becoming gold buyers. So I wrote "Secrets of a Successful Gold Buyer" and set up www.beagoldbuyer.com. Now anyone can profit as gold buyers full-time, part-time or even in their spare time.
