Now that 2017 is behind us it’s time for a recap! I have to admit that the year didn’t go as I planned. I had all these grand plans, but by the time summer hit I had things pop up (gallstones and pregnancy) that pretty much stopped me in my tracks for a good three months. I’m still recovering and trying to build my eBay sales back up to where they were before that happened, but considering everything that happened I’m still pretty happy with the year.
It was my first full year selling on eBay! I’ve learned that I really do enjoy it, despite the fact that it means I constantly have stuff in my house. For a wannabe minimalist that was hard for me to accept at first. It’s really a great way for me to not only bring in an income while home with my son, but also do something that I feel is helping, instead of hurting, the environment. That was something I really struggled with in past businesses like my online boutique that I ran years ago.
Despite the fact that the last half of the year was a struggle (including three months almost completely off) I still did over $15,000 in sales on eBay alone.
