Count your blessings, please. It’s been a wonderful 2016 in so many ways. You’ve made some sales; you’ve learned some new tricks; and you’ve probably even bought a few things for yourself on eBay. Forget any distractions to your spirit, and enjoy the holiday season. Seriously.
I’m having to overcome some challenges right now that are first world problems, if you get my drift — too silly to even mention. So I had to take a moment to remember to ignore the small stuff. Save your energy and talents for things that really need your attention. Put your store on vacation for a few days, and have some fun. Even if that means doing crossword puzzles in your jammies.
Happy Holidays to you from our team here at eBay Radio: Griff, Lee, eBetsy, Donna, Frank, John, Melissa, CJ, Burt and the gang over at iHeartMedia (Jorge, John and Matt).
Senior VP of eBay North America Hal Lawton authored an eloquent and gracious post in the eBay for Business blog that should be mandatory reading for anyone who sells on eBay. It’s titled “Happy Holidays and Thank You from eBay”, and it says in part:
“Happy holidays to you and your loved ones, eBay sellers! Whether you’re a hobby seller, an always-on entrepreneur, or a large merchant, you are what makes our marketplace unique.
“You provide the incredible and unique merchandise that our 165 million buyers come to eBay for. You put in the extra effort to make your customers happy and coming back for more. And you – in an unparalleled way — help your peers find their way by sharing your experience, knowledge, and advice in the eBay community.
“That’s why we wanted to take a moment to express our sincere gratitude and stress just how much we appreciate you.
“So, thank you. Thank you for being passionate, relentless, and dedicated. From our eBay family to yours – season’s greetings and a big THANK YOU for helping to make eBay the world’s most exciting, dynamic, and human shopping destination. We couldn’t do it without you.”
