I quit a 12 hour a day sales job because my quality of life was suffering too much from the stress! I started selling personal items on eBay because I figured that once I got another job, I might not have time. I planned to go look for a job once I had sold any of our own items that we weren’t using. (We have a no clutter policy.) Friends and family started asking me to sell for them when they heard what I was doing, and it occurred to me that I might not have to get another job if I could make enough to make the house payment selling on eBay. That was six years ago, and I never did have to get another job. I love it, and from the beginning, it seemed to take on a life of its own. As I started getting busier, my husband took over the packing and shipping (which is great because he’s the perfectionist). Three years ago my husband told me I should get certified and teach others how to sell on eBay through eBay’s Education Specialist program and I’m so glad I took his advice! I teach them everything I’ve learned through the years and thoroughly enjoy watching them grow their own successful eBay business.
I am a Certified Education Specialist Trained by eBay in The Basics of Selling on eBay, Beyond the Basics and eBay Stores.

Start your own eBay business.
7 years ago I quit my 11 hour a day job (despite the money which was great) because the stress was unbearable. My husband and I decided that our quality of life was more important than the money so I quit that job without having another job lined up.
While contemplating what I wanted to do for a living (so we could keep our Bay Area house we bought when we got married 2.5 years earlier), I started selling on eBay to clean out our house and get rid of things we were not using. When our friends and family found out I was selling on eBay, they started asking me to sell things for them. At that point I thought, ‘Maybe I can make this a business’.
I started selling for friends and family. Now I sell on consignment, and I do Drop Shipping which is selling for companies and once the item sells, they ship the item. I do not have to pay for the merchandise until after I have collected payment from the buyer.
4 years ago I learned that eBay has a training program through which I could be certified to teach others to sell on eBay, using eBay’s training program.
