Griff and Lee received a listing dish request from nativeamericanturquoise on the chat board: item number 331584890481. They compromised on a score of 4.4 tureens and asked that the seller contact them again for a re-dish after corrections have been made. Lee asked another 4th of July trivia question.
Lee found 690,000 items listed on eBay as related to the 4th of July. Griff broke his own record for listing items over the weekend and found something encouraging is happening as a result. Diva Dawn is running a summer boot camp this July for organizing your business on eBay: Camp Clutter B Gone (http://www.campclutterbgone).
Griff and Lee reminded us that Coach Jack (Jack Dalton, eBay’s Senior Manager for Pricing Analysis) will be visiting eBay Radio again soon; to submit your store for his analysis of your fees and format mix, meal [email protected] with your eBay ID (not your store name) and any other details you think he should know. Lee asked a 4th of July trivia question, and first-time caller Kate, Webster City IA (serendipity-4-ever), won a $25 Bubblefast Gift Certificate for knowing the answer.
As we prepare to celebrate the 4th of July, take a few minutes to pull your mind away from the groceries you need for the barbecue, or where you’re going to go to view the fireworks, and reflect upon the unique freedoms that we, as Americans, enjoy. Among them is the freedom to be an entrepreneur and run your own business, be it small, medium or large. eBay could only have been born in the USA, where we the people have been granted the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. That includes writing our own definition of success, then going out and making it happen. Hurrah for the red, white and blue!
During this 4th of July holiday, remember the freedoms we enjoy today thanks to our forebears who fought for and won them. In some countries, you couldn’t start a business of your own. We are very fortunate to live in the United States of America, where entrepreneurship is not only welcomed, but rewarded. Enjoy the holiday…and never forget why we celebrate it!
