Probably the biggest take I have from the book - Is that you can not do it all alone. At some point employees are a must, and so are automation solutions, or listing solutions.

Various business models are examined, such as hobbyist-turned- entrepreneur and brick-and-mortar businesses brought online. Lists with This Book. This book is not yet featured on Listopia.

This was not a big help as this is more for the big money makers of Ebay, but it doesn't help the little guys out like myself trying to make it big. They need to down scale it - come down to earth with it. Maybe more people will be drawn to it and will buy it.

Very good book.

This book is really a series of success stories as told by members of the Professional eBay Sellers Alliance who are the big sellers on eBay. Each of these sellers started rather small, and has grown their business to rather large size.

Most of these sellers have eBay stores. They use the auctions, of course, but they seem to concentrate on their stores where they can sell many of the same items. For instance if you had one widget to sell, you're use the auction. But if you had been lucky enough to buy a couple of hundred of them at a really great price you wouldn't want to sell them one auction per week.

After saying that, much of the book then talks about the mechanics of running a businees. After all, this is a business you're in. It's a mail order business, and this means a few unique differences from a store front. For instance, you'll pay a lot of attention to shipping and receiving goods. Make friends with the shipping people, they can help you. For instance, shipping companies have rules about how fast a package must be delivered or they get returned. I was on vacation for a month. My delivery guy signed for packages I got and kept them in his truck until I returned rather than have them sent back.

Quick summary, this is what the big guys are doing. You can learn things from them, but above all else, get started.

I've got to quit writing now, Lisa, my UPS delivery person just drove up.

Too dated to be helpful with the continuing evolution of Ebay.
