Is Your Business Continuing to Grow?
Is Your Business Continuing to Grow?
Spring is one of my favorite times of year. Now is the time where flowers are in bloom and time to plant your seeds. Just like spring gardens, businesses need to continue to be seeded with new ideas in order to continuing to grow or your profits will not show.  

I am an Education Specialist trained by eBay to teach the eBay classes. The highest level of training is the Certified Business Consultant program through EBay's Power University. I have recently completed the required studies, and scored 100% on the test and am now a Certified Business Consultant. I saw an opportunity to advance my skills and can help you develop your education.

One of the things I have noticed is a very common statement made my students after each class is that "they want to learn more". A very successful business man once said when asked “What one thing made him so successful? It wasn’t the one thing that made him so successful. It was DOING MANY things that made him such a SUCCESS."
There are a lot of business people with good ideas out there. But very few who take immediate action. They wait to gather all the details, such as having financing and waiting for the perfect timing. Don’t get hung up in the details, just move forward with your idea.  Just by getting into action you’ll be ahead of 95% of the people around you.” The purpose of the Super Sellers Club is to help you continue your education and plant those seeds. Every month you will be presented with information in the form of a monthly call, with an authority in a different field, an action worksheet and two short reports sent to your email.

Clear out the weeds and clutter in your business. Sometimes our lists simply have too many items on them and they need to be simplified. I sat down to evaluate where I was and what I wanted to achieve in my businesses. I realized I was trying to do too many things and needed to focus more on a few goals. So I removed several items from my list…for now anyway.

Ask Gail

Ken asked this question "Is it true it will be FREE for me to sell my items on eBay?"
Gail replies "
You may have heard that starting May 1, 2013 you can get from 50 to 2,500 FREE listings per month. Final value fees will be simplified to 5 competitive category-based rates as low as the 4%. You will have more flexibility with standard fees (no Stores subscription): Starting April 16, your 50 free listings per month can be listed Auction-style or fixed price. Pay just one flat 10% final value fee—only when your item sells. The stepped final value fee system has been discontinued in favor of a fixed selling fee, based on the category you are in.  Computers will decrease as those FV fees drop to 4%. In Consumer Electronics, Cameras & Photos Categories the new final value fee will be 6%. Musical Instruments & Gear Coins & Paper Money FV fees will be 7% and 8% on motor parts and accessories. However the final value fee for antiques, collectibles, home garden, beauty and almost everything else will be 9% which is a huge increase for all sellers. So even though the initial auction maybe free to list your auction once it sells it is not free and we will have to wait for a few months to see if you will have a decrease or increase in the end the total costs."

Should I Buy This To Resell?

Ask Gail-Selling New or Used Items

Gail says "I sold an antique two tier fruit bin to a buyer in Las Vegas. Her husband Roger picked  up the piece of furniture and strapped it on the back of the family vehicle for the trip back. He was very creative in strapping the fruit bin to his vehicle!"

Roger says "Beautiful piece, wonderful people to work with, thank you!"
