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 to this so I am not worried at all. The items will sell when they will. I  just need to make money online regardless.

Nobody should come and tell me it is not possible. Anything is possible

I listed some African fabrics in my etsy shop

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…
