Hi! Doug Linn of Quiet Speculation here, bringing you interviews with the top minds in Magic finance. Each week, I’ll be bringing you an hour-long interview with people tapped into the MTG Finance community on every level. Whether you’re a Friday Night Magic hero with a binder full of staples or you want to make this hobby pay for itself, there’s plenty to learn in each show.
This week, my guest is Kyle Lopez of Aether Games. Kyle and his business partner Josh have built up a huge store from nothing in less than a year. If you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to transact tens of thousands of dollars of cards in a weekend, this is the show for you. If you dream of opening a store, Kyle lays out what you need to do to truly succeed.
This week, we hit on:
-Whether you can run a store as a weekend gig
-If stores are right to cancel orders when a card spikes
-What card Kyle regretted selling
and plenty more!
