It’s always great when you find a way to supplement your regular income with something that barely takes any time at all, but I can’t imagine how excellent it must be to end up making £100,000 a year from something as ridiculous as selling your old socks.
This is exactly the situation that 33 year old property investor Roxy Sykes found herself in when someone randomly complimented her on the beauty of her feet. She decided to set up an Instagram account highlighting this and the rest is history:
After being told by a colleague that I had beautiful feet, I was convinced to set up a social media account to show them off.
But it wasn’t until I started getting thousands of followers and messages about selling used items that I realised I could profit from it.
I didn’t show my face or anything at first, so I knew people were just interested in me for my feet, so it didn’t feel too personal.
But when I started selling I got a real buzz from it and realised just how much I could make from selling shoes and socks from time to time.
I realised how much money I could truly make on my busiest month, where I saw over £8000 come in just for videos, socks and shoes.
Now I can never see myself stopping this – however old I get my feet will always be able to make me money.
Posting photos and videos of my feet was all well and good, but people always wanted more and wanted to physically own something to do with my feet.
I would be in business meetings, taking photos of my feet under the table, and getting an influx of messages by the hour asking if they could buy anything.
So I moved my business onto different websites, as well as just social media, and suddenly started making £2000 a week from just one website alone.
Pairs of shoes that I would wear for two months would sell for £200, and a pair of socks that I wore for a day would sell for £20.
Then a single video of even me just wiggling my toes would make £100, so I was really raking in a lot of money.
I really like what I do, and I think that’s because I really got desensitized from it and saw it as work.
I have never had any trouble getting into relationships because of what I do, and my friends and family are on board with what I do.
It’s great to be able to get home from a normal working day to know I can make a bit of extra money from a photo of my feet.
I know it’s something I will never stop doing – the money is so good and it’s so easy, there’s no reason I would!
I have started to train different models in how to get into the fetish industry and make money like I am.
It’s great to be able to help others and teach people my apparent ‘talent’ so that they can follow what I do.
It’s also amazing to see people’s confidence grow when they make these videos and start to earn money from something like a pair of socks.
Working as a team together also helps to beat the stigma and make the industry less frowned upon.
I mean yeah it sounds completely sick really doesn’t it? To be honest I’m not even sure why she even needs another job if she can make almost £100,000 a year from just making videos of her feet and selling her old shoes and socks? I would just do that for ten minutes a day and live like an absolute king/queen if I was in that situation.
Unfortunately though my feet and scabby and gross so I don’t think there’s ever going to be a time when that will be an option for me. Back to the drawing board.
