One of the greatest pleasuresÂ I get out of teaching others about online auctions (eBay) and Internet income strategies is to hear success stories.
I think all entrepreneurs are motivated and inspired by the success of others, but it is especially rewarding when the person succeeding gives you full or partial credit for their success. That’s why I always encourage everyone that succeeds online to consider teaching others to do it too! Not only is it profitable to do so, but it is VERY rewarding.
For exampleÂ last week I had a great conversation with a great guy named Rob. Rob is one of the MOST successful eBay sellers in the game right now. He’s handling more transactions per week than any other eBay seller (think tens of thousands) and he credits my ideas for helping him get there.Â He runsÂ a small business (it’s truly not a huge operation -it’s just his wife and a couple of friends running the whole show!) andÂ he’s doing VERY well!
He’s starting to implementÂ many of the “multiple streams” concepts to protect his future online income. Smart move.Â
His success story reminds me of the story behind the 4 minute mile run. For years it was assumed incorrectly that a 4 minute mile run was IMPOSSIBLE.Â Then onÂ May 6th, 1954Â Roger BanisterÂ ran the first everÂ sub-four-minute mile in recorded history. HeÂ cut it REAL close coming inÂ at 3 minutes 59.4 seconds. After years of everyone assuming it couldn’t be done it happened…and then guess what happened about six weeks later? A different guy did the same thing setting a newÂ sub-four minute record.
What does this have to do with eBay?
I think most people assume that in order to have a massively successful eBay business you have to have a huge operation with a bunch of employees and hassles. This isn’t true and as you meet great guys like Rob you’ll see that it really can be done…and this will inspire many to follow in the same path.
YouÂ can do this – eBay truly is the greatest opportunity of our lifetimes. I believe that 100%.
Don’t think that you have to have a full-time operation to pull this off though. Many VERY successful Internet/eBay entrepreneurs are putting in just a few hours per week and making a killing. IÂ teach both full-time and part-time strategiesÂ (i.e. check out PartTimePlan.com).
The only missing ingredient is taking action – what have you done to move your business forward lately?
(P.S. I’ll be telling you more about the “top eBay seller” that I’ve been talking to…he’s got some great ideas that he’s agreeing to share with us!)
