eBay Business Tips – eBay As a Way of Life!

This eBay-Business-Tips article is about living as a successful eBay seller. You are now entering a different world than the average Joe (or Jane). Or as we would have said when I was a Kid, “Your are now entering the Twilight Zone.” Working with eBay is a whole different world. Being a successful eBay seller has some real challenges, but it also has some real rewards.As an eBay seller you will put in some very long hours. Hopefully that doesn’t scare you away, because those can be fun and rewarding hours. And, yes, the hours are long, but then again, you get to pick them.You have to immerse yourself into what you sell, but the good thing is that you will be immersing yourself into something you have a passion about. Don’t forget, we are talking about a successful eBay business, not a hobby.Some people like to tinker with eBay and sell a few things now and then. And these people do make a little money while having fun. But this will be your business…a business you can enjoy, but still a business that you must immerse yourself in every day.If you want to escape working for someone else in some mundane job and make eBay your business, then there is no way to do this half-heartedly. You will be diving in and swimming the eBay life.Most successful eBay sellers don’t take a lot of vacations. It’s not that they can’t if they wanted to, but they get a system going and as they see the money coming in, they don’t want to break the flow of their business. After all, there is a lot to do.You will have to answer your emails, seek out new products to sell, post your listings, package your products and mail those babies. Yes, there is a lot to do, but it sure beats commuting for an hour to a job you aren’t invested in or using a jackhammer in the hot sun.Sure you work long hours, but I know people who commute 1-2 hours each way every day and don’t get paid for that time. The gas costs them a fortune and they leave before dark and get home after dark. I’d much rather be sitting at home in my pajamas (if I want) working at my computer and getting paid for it, than driving that commute each day. Not to mention the gas money and wear and tear on your car you save.These eBay business tips are just to ensure that you know the pros and cons of being your own boss with eBay. The responsibility is real, but, hey, so is the freedom you have to work the hours you want…and so is the reward of having your own business and creating your own good income with eBay!
