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 list list no matter what.
I now follow people on instagram who make a living on eBay and then some . If they can do it, so can I.

I also changed the name of my shop to correspond with my blog and online identify. Branding....... Hello😀

I have been doing entrepreneurship for the past 10 years. I haven't made a substantial amount of money but if anyone would ask me about an advice in business, I would tell them.
*** Donot ever ever give up***
Believe in yourself, Believe in your idea, believe in your product or service because if you do not believe, you will give up very easily.
If you donot believe, you will panic. You will start to think negatively, soon you will find yourself looking for work because you did not have enough faith in yourself or your idea.
       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 …

Some Platforms to Sell Online -

I have been trying to make money online as long as I can remember. Since my time in university from selling my used textbooks to cleaning for students after school. The first time I made money blogging was in 201. Someone ask me to post a flag on my blog, he sent $25 to my Paypal. I was so excited. I couldn't believe I got paid to post a picture of a flag.
I have been on and offline since then, I stopped blogging and focused on my online shop where I sold African clothing and Accessories on etsy.

I now sell my products on a few platforms and I want to share my three (3) favorites with you.

Etsy.I love love etsy so much. I made so much sales with my shop, it was unbelievable. I didn't have to worry about advertising or marketing. Etsy is a platform that has its own buyers. People come there to find cool things to buy. If they like what you have, they will buy for sure. Etsy charges a listing fee of $0.20 to list every item and then when you sell, they charge you a transaction fe…
