I got that first sale on Ebay

So you cannot imagine my excitement this morning. I woke up this morning and got notification from PayPal that I received payment. From who you ask? Something sold in my Ebay shop. I have been sourcing for the last 2 weeks, taking pictures and listing my life away on eBay. This particular item I sold, I bought it on Kijiji for $5.00 last week and it sold for $25.

Finally the ice has been broken. I was beginning to think nobody could see my shop. I can calm my nerves down knowing that I am doing something right. Each time I list an item, I share it on twitter and pinterest like my life depend on it. Yeah my life actually depends on this. I've got a child to feed and rent to pay. Those are my two major headaches right now. Maintaining a shelter for the baby and feeding her right.
In regards to the shop, I just have to keep going and not give up. Sticking to my own advice. I picked up some unique vintage toy cars yesterday and can't wait to photograph and list.
All I do is list …

       Entrepreneurship is hard, heck life is hard. If you believe in the journey you are on, then stay the cause. Some days you don't want to get out of bed, Some days you feel like …

Selling Online Etsy and Ebay

I cannot believe the year is almost over. About a week to Christmas I am not looking forward to the holiday but I am excited regardless.
Starting in 2019, I want to increase my online activity. Promote my selling on Etsy, Ebay and my own shop on Shopify. The goal is to make money. The bills have to be paid, basics like rent, internet and food must be bought. I had to quit my job at DHL because the hours were not favorable for a mom with a little baby.
For the past three months, I have ignored my online shops because of my full-time job.
Now that I am unemployed, I can focus on creating income online. I know it is possible but nobody said it going to be easy. I called ebay for them to increase my limit but apparently I am owning them $4 which is over due. I have to pay that fees before I can call them back to request a higher selling limit.

I went ahead to list some items on my Ebay and Etsy shop. You just gotta list, say a prayer and have faith that it will sell. I am not really new t…
