Selling Percentage Fail

March 15, 2012

Yesterday, I was checking my e-mail using my denton internet service connection, and I opened an e-mail from eBay. It said, “congrats, awesome seller!”. It followed with, “you have sold seventy-one percent of everything that you have listed since you started selling in 2008.” I have to admit that I was a little disappointed with only seventy-one percent. If I was running eBay as a primary income, I definitely wouldn’t be making enough money. I think that the e-mail did what it intended to do. I got fired up and have decided that I am really going to start selling and bring my percentage of sold goods up.

If we were getting grades in class, I would have a C-, nearly failing, and certainly not high enough to count towards you major graduation requirements. So, I am going to get started.

Boom, it’s on!

I have already started circling all of the yard sales and estate sales that are this weekend. Hopefully I will be able to find quite a few good things that I can list and make a profit on! When I sell stuff on Ebay, I really get a rush!


I also blog at A Five Star Life. I write about anything that comes to mind but try to focus on finding the good in daily life.
