Okay, I am the curious one out of the bunch. I am curious to know who are you and what do you do? It can be something you do for a living (website and all) or for fun.

I'll start. I am Felicia, I live in PA and I own a soy candle business online, of course. I have 2 young children, happily married and I love my family.

Now it's your turn!

Hi everyone. My name is Lisa & I have been transplanted to Arizona from Philadelphia. I am a manufacturer's rep for a line of caulking products & my area is the entire state of Texas. I also have a part time business selling on eBay. Basically it's a hobby but it gives me a little extra spending money.

I have 4 kids & 2 granddaughters & a terrific husband! Yes I am a die hard Philly fan!

Eh... I'm Douglas. I live in TX. I have no kids, and no job (I was laid-off) :(. My house is about to be foreclosed, and I have to move again. I'm looking into building an online business (mostly with dropshipping as I have no space or money) due to the fact that I currently have alot of free time (is it really free?). How far I get with this plus my current circumstance? We shall see.

Otherwise I'm doing pretty well :).

Hi everybody! I'm Gener, I'm from San Diego. I migrated here from the Philippines 10 years ago. I'm 26 and I am a full time eBay seller. I hate working for someone else. I want to be my own boss and eBay gave me that opportunity. I'm proud to say that my eBay business went from a hobby to a real business. I will be investing in real estate and my goal for the next 3 years is to make my mom and dad retire from their jobs. I love my family and that is why I go out of my comfort zone to give my family a better life style (Remember, successful people are the ones who took the risk). I will still continue to sell on eBay though because I just love making that extra bucks =)

Hi, I'm Art, i'm weird.. I have no children, no family, no friends, i know everything about wholesale and eBay and yet I am a complete failure. I like to do drawrings, I play the drums, I love music, I went to NYU film school, I have not had a girlfriend for 8 years, I am very lonely, I love animals, but I dont have pets now bc my cats died. I was an auditor for several years, but i have been unemployed now for over a year and no one will hire me. I love comedy. I love food. I have severe depression and OCD, and I am highly dysfunctional and suffer from analysis parallysis, but i refuse government income bc I strongly believe in individual responsibility. and I am straight edge, I refuse medicine or alcohol or drugs. I am a big nutrition and excercise person, although i am having trouble motivating myself. I am so lacking motivation, I cant even get me to kill myself for the past 6 months. the only thing that gets me up in the afternoon these days is the hope that one day i might meet a nice girl.

I hope this wasn't too revealing.

ok i'll be serious & honest then, im jake, i live near sacramento ca. i am on temp. disability, after 10 years of being treated for bi-polar and deppression, they found out that my thyroid has been in really bad shape for all these years and the cause of most of my problems, i am taking the thyroid meds and feel 100x better. hoping to go back to work soon. hoping this online thing will work out so i won't have to work for long, getting frustrated cause everytime i find something that will sell on ebay, its cause no one can supply it. im a huge raider fan and am going through football withdrawals. cant wait til september.

I'm Jasmine, I live in Australia and have an online store for boys aged 0 to 5. I have an 18 month old son and was sick of not being able to find clothes for him so I imported my own and it took off from there. I also have an ebay interest but it is a true niche and while I can always sell my stock finding it in the first place is tricky so this is not a huge part of my business.

Names Eric (age 39). I live in Texas. I'm a heavy equipment operator currently but did spend four years as an entertainer doing bar gigs. It was cool for awhile. I then purchased a bunch of recording equipment to make my personal demos on and ended up creating demos for aspiring songwriters across the globe....did alot for german songwriters....they love country music over there. Go figure. I had an independent song make the top 250 most requested in independent radio in Europe...came in at 223 on the country charts.lol

Anyway, I love music and still have my equipment but am currently looking for ways to make some extra cash, hence...'I'm here!'. I am married with children....another reason I never have enough money.

Hi I am a mother of 4 and 2 grandchildren.Been married to the same guy for 29 years.I live in a small country town in Cullman Alabama. I work from 5 in the morning until 6 at night from my home with daycare and it does not make enough money for those kind of hours. I have tried a little of everything on the net to make some money and found most of it is all scams.So I thought I would try ebay. I have bought a lot of things from ebay but have never sold anything. I guess not knowing about how to adjust the prices on what you sell so you don't wind up owing ebay a bunch of money for listing fees has kept me from getting started. And not knowing what to sell. I am glad I found Salehoo. there is a lot of friendly people here.
