Inside The Tent

If you are looking for a way to make a lot of cash fast, try running a fireworks tent.

A fireworks tent sale is typically a two week time period and you can literally make thousands of dollars.

Running a Fireworks tent is one of the quickest ways to a large amount of money, fast. It's a challenge though and one that you will need to be prepared for. Get as much information as you can about running your tent successfully before going forward.

Even if you don't have the capital to start a tent, you can work with a local charity, church or other organization to get their backing and financial backing. Or, even team up with a local business who provides the site and the financial back, while you actually run the tent. Many local businesses are always looking for ways to get in on the cash being made in various season throughout the year.

Start by looking for a business that has a large sized lot. Call to find out who the owner of the company is and then see if you can schedule a time to meet with him or her. When you go to the meeting, be prepared. Tell them exactly what you need from them and what you are going to provide. Highlight any management or entrepreneurial experience you have.

Be sure to purchase a copy of this e-book to run a successful fireworks tent. It's available on Kindle at "How I Made Over $40,000 Selling Fireworks."
Once the tent is up, filled with stock and you are ready to sell, you should have read through the above book to get a good understanding of how to run a successful fireworks tent and what you'll need to do it.

Approaching Money!

Make Lots of Money in 16 days or less during the upcoming 4th of July Season.

“As the Fourth of July approaches, I just can’t help thinking back to this time last year. I was broke and it felt like there wasn’t any way to get my bills paid no matter what I did,” says Moni West, Assistant Manager.

“That’s about the time that I started reading a local newspaper,” says Will West, Manager. Let’s just say that in a matter of 16 days the couple was able to pay all of their bills and have some to put in the bank. It wasn’t a magical fix or something that just happened. They partnered with a local fireworks company and spent the days before the Fourth of July managing a fireworks tent. A fireworks tent can make a lot of money, quickly.

The week before the Fourth of July was slow at the tent. Over 3/4 of the business happened on the July 3 and July 4. “We were busy with a line going to the back of the tent for most of the 3rd and 4th of July,” says Ms. West. “People loved our fireworks. People loved the atmosphere that we created and they loved the way that we made each customer feel special coming through the door,” says Mr. West.

Not a lot of information is available on how to run a fireworks tent successfully. Up until now, most people have simply tried to make money at running a fireworks tent. Some did okay and a lot of other people just didn’t make any money. Sadly, some even ended up owing money.

The thing about this kind of gig is that several factors come into play when it comes to making money. After all was said and done, the West family made over $40,000 in 16 days. They got a percentage of what was sold with a base pay.

If you want to run a successful fireworks tent, research as best you can to get a good understand of how to do it. “How I Made Over $40,000 in 16 Days Selling Fireworks” is filled with stories, tips and tricks on how to successfully run a fireworks tent. Get your copy of this book on

You’ll Make A Lot of Cash Running A Fireworks Tent, but you’ll also get a whole lot more out of the experience than just money.

“Making a lot of cash, FAST, is the main reason that we originally did it, and it’s likely the reason that most people will. But to be honest, we walked away from the experience with so much more than cash,” says Moni West, Assistant Manager.

If you need to make a lot of cash, fast, running a fireworks tent, might just be what you need. Managing a Fireworks tent is like no other experience and you just might find that it affects other parts of your life.

As a family, it’ll likely bring you closer. This is a very committed job for about a two week period. During that time, you’ll have to pull together to make it work. However, you do it, is something you’ll likely work out on your own. Whether that means one person stays at the tent and the other runs the household. The children and teenagers in the house will likely be a large part of the job, also.

If you want to lose weight, it’ll help bring you closer to your goal. Running a fireworks tent in the summer months in the South is definitely hot and there’s no air-conditioning. You’ll be sweating a whole lot more than usual, which is great for weight loss. It’s kind of like your own personal DE-tox. You’ll feel the pounds drop off each day just by going about your normal routine. In essence, you’ll be getting paid a lot to lose weight, which is a really good thought.

Sometimes life can be so full of the same thing, day after day. You’re in a rut and don’t quite know how to get out of it, to change things in your life. This is a great way to start. Since habits are made in 21 days and running a fireworks tent is close to that amount of time, it will affect how you do things and help you learn to do things differently.

If you want to run a fireworks tent because you need the cash, realize that it will affect the rest of your life in a good way, too. If you want to get closer to your family, need to lose weight or to break out of a rut, it’s a good idea to do it for these reasons, too.

Start by doing research into how to run a fireworks tent. A good book that is filled with stories, tips and tricks to run your fireworks tent is “How I Made Over $40,000 in 16 Days Running Selling Fireworks.” The book can be found on

      Another fireworks season is coming up. You can still get in on it if you want to.

      We didn't have any out of pocket expense, because we partnered with a company. If you want to partner with a company and aren't quite sure how to do it, the book gives great insight into how to sell fireworks with no out of pocket expenses.

      Voted up and interesting but in New York you'd get arrested for doing this. We aren't allowed to even possess fireworks never mind selling them. Great for you guys in the south!
