Shane from Oregon, USA

Hello Everyone,

I searched for "financial independence on eBay" and this site popped up so here I am. My name is Shane, married, no kids just yet, one dog, renting, taking online classes, working full time for a parking lot maintenance company, making just enough to be broke at the end of each month. For the past three months I have been reselling things on eBay. February 2013 will be my fourth month and I am looking forward to finally having no selling limits. I spent about $900 bucks on different items from suppliers in China. Some of my items sell real fast, some of them sell real slow, others do not sell at all. Anyway, that is enough about that, glad to be here and thank you for letting me be a part of the community.

Don't Get a Job, Start a Business!

Welcome. I just sold my 70th item on eBay yesterday, it's a great service IMO. Everything I sold was something I didn't need/want anymore, so everyone wins...
