What's it all about?

Do you know anyone who does not own a mobile phone? Just about everyone owns a mobile phone these days.  

How many people do you know who have cracked their phone screen at some point? Already, you can see the potential here.

Mobile phone repair shops are located in just about every town, big or small across the world. And here is a little secret: It really isn't that difficult to replace an Iphone screen or battery. Once you learn how to do it, its easy peasy. You can charge around £45 for replacing a broken screen on an iPhone with the screen itself costing between £15 and £25, bagging you up to £30 profit. For a new battery, you can charge the same with a lower cost of between £10 and £20 to buy the battery, bagging you up to £35 profit for around 10 minutes work. Not a bad profit margin at all. 

With Amazon stocking all of the materials you need, you won't even need to stock anything. Just buy the new screen or battery when you get a customer.

For example, if you were to just fit 10 new batteries per month, this would bring in £350 per month. Throw in 10 new screens then this is an additional £300 per month, meaning a cool £600 per month for about 200 minutes of labour!
