Troy joins us again to talk numbers for your eBay business. Thanks Troy!
We last interviewed Mark Tew in 2016. Since we last spoke, Mark quit his job as a CPA, opened his own tax accounting business, sold his house, and moved his family to Nicaragua. He’s also had learned a lot more about doing taxes for eBay and Amazon sellers since they are his main client base. We dig deeper into doing taxes as resellers and best practices to make tax season much easier.
Every so often, we record conversations with other sellers. You can find them all here. How do we pick who we speak with? It’s always sellers who are scavenging and selling a little differently than we are or living a different lifestyle. It’s fun for us to learn new things or just help celebrate how scavenging can take different forms. We also look for people who know what they’re doing is unique and are proud of their accomplishments.
This recording is with Flavio, who is an active member of the US military. On top of his daily duties of safeguarding our country, he also scavenges and sells on eBay. Since he lives on base, he has to really manage his inventory in order to pass inspections. He’s frugal and has a strong vision for how he wants to spend his money to build his future. What’s most interesting is hearing how he tries to share this perspective with the men under his leadership, usually young recruits who blow all their cash on short-lived luxuries.
Flavio was fun to speak with and I wish I was as together as he was at his age. He’ll be here in the comments if you have any questions. Are any of you active military? Could you have imagined selling on eBay while serving?
Hope you had a good week.
