    eBay works for me. It is fun, easy, and profitable. You can work flexible hours, as your schedule allows.

    I am an eBay Silver Level Powerseller. My monthly profit averages $3500. I work about 6 hours a day. The more you work, the more you make.

    This is an excellent learning resource if you are new to eBay selling


    Feel free to contact me directly - I am glad to help.


    Best of luck to you!

    What you have to consider here is whether you would prefer to offer a product or a service. Money is time, so if you are offering a service, you are limited by your time. You can only do so much for people in one day, so if you have more customers than you can handle, you are giving away business.

    With a product, it is unlimited. You just have to take and fill as many orders as possible, giving you no limit on your time.

    I have found that the most lucrative route is marketing a product that I can use the internet, the telephone (leads) and person to person to share with people.

    Let me know if this is of interest to you.

    My supervisor is looking for new people for our agent team. If he selects you, he will provide full training for free. All of us work as independent business owners. The company does a lot of the work that would normally bog down a small business owner. We do a specific job and get paid very well for doing it. Work schedules are flexible but the mote time that you can work, the more you will earn. Some of the work is on-line. I love the International communication part of the work. I meet people all around the world.

    If you want, I can ask my supervisor to call you. Tell me the best day and time for him to call you. Bruce

    before you do read any of the "rich dad poor dad" series by Robert kiyosaki. He really points out many things noone going into their own business ever knows. heck read all of his books. you can get them on amozon. i am using a lot of the principles he describes to finally get a business giong after 2 others failed. i know it is a long road, but now there are so many principles about business management and being an employer not an employee to your business.
