Yesterday, I received this email from eBay:
Congratulations! You’ve been on a super sales streak and since you’ve done so well, it’s time to recognize your efforts. Your PowerSeller level has been upgraded to Silver!
Now, to someone who does not sell on eBay, this is probably not a big deal. But to me, it is! I have been a bronze PowerSeller off and on for awhile now. It wasn’t until recently (since I have gotten into a consistent routine after being laid off, selling our home and moving… all while being a stay at home mom) that I could truly concentrate on eBay.
Not only does this mean selling discounts but it also reassures my customers that I am a trusted and reliable seller.
You can ask my friends and old co-workers, I have always wanted to be a full-time seller but was too afraid to take the plunge. I used to make statements like “I could do this full time and make just as much money as I am now” and people thought I was nuts. I also used to give eBay 101 lessons to my coworkers so they could bring in some extra money. The bottom line is this, you can do ANYTHING you put your mind to! YES, it is a LOT of work but my philosophy is this…you get out of it what you put into it!
The best part of all is that I get to stay home and raise my son! What a blessing! Thank you eBay!
