Has anyone here started their own business?

My work at home job currently is Ebay, and I do make a lot of money doing this. I'm thinking of starting my own business, and would love to talk to someone that has.

I used to do ebay, but then I got banned. My own fault but wish I could do it again.

I started breeding parrots as a hobby a few years ago. I don't make any money off of it at all and I don't raise many babies anymore, but I still have that business license and still get to write off a lot of stuff on my taxes.

Hi Ashleigh!

I started my own business and actually started out on ebay like you are. After a year or two of paying the RIDICULOUS ebay fees I decided a website was definately the way to go, for me it was a good decision.

If a website of your own is the direction you are considering going into then I would suggest doing a lot of research/reading before creating your site. SEO is key to having a successful site. I dind't even know what SEO was until a year into my site so I had to go backwards and try to fix everything. I also knew nothing about web design or maintaining a website but through trial and error learned along the way.

Yep, I started my own business and been working it now for about 3 years. I'm the owner and sole employee. Never done e-bay though. Anyway, feel free to PM me if you have specific questions.
