This week we’re recording from the beautiful Pacific Beach in San Diego. This ocean adventure is a reward to ourselves for working a long week at a job we did in LA. Even though we sell on eBay full-time, we still take these jobs from time to time. It’s good money but comes with a lot of stress. Reminds us why we chose to sell on eBay full-time. In this podcast, you’ll hear us debate the pros and cons of working for someone else.
Links we talked about this week:
–This is the famous photo of Mikey and Wendy wirelessly printing eBay labels and shipping while camping.
–A great article titled: “Shopping for antiques to find my mother“. These are the people who buy our stuff on eBay.
–Alibaba is being sued by some major brands (Gucci, Polo) for allowing the sale counterfeit products. We all knew this was coming. Shows why it’s tough to sell these brands on eBay because there are so many fakes out there.
