If I didn’t have three children to care for and a husband out of town for anesthesia clinicals 4 days per week…
I think could make some serious BANK selling full time on eBay.
I’m tellin’ ya!
I have tubs and tubs and tubs of items to sell in my garage, and because I do research before I purchase 95% of what I sell on eBay, almost all of my inventory is probably a sure sale. It’s just a matter of taking the time to photograph and create listings and doing the WORK to get the items sold.
I guess I feel kind of passionate about this maybe because in today’s economic climate we always hear about how people are out of work and drawing unemployment (not saying that is wrong btw) etc. But there are so many ways (perhaps unconventional) to make money… Amazon, Etsy, eBay, Consignment Sales (not just as a seller, heck start your own sale… it’s the most genius business model on the planet), blogging (no money in that for me ha ha), etc.
I’m convinced! The American dream is still there for the taking. But we have to WORK and we have to teach our children to work, so that we aren’t raising an upcoming generation of losers who just want the world handed to them, and who aren’t raised with the word ENTITLED tattooed on their forehead.
Whew. I feel better! LOL
So here are some of my favorite sales from the past few weeks. Pretty much as fast as I can list this stuff… it sells!
