When all else fails, when you’ve lost your job, wife just gave birth and you’re essentially living in a new city with very limited support, what do you do? Tristan O’Brien, of Westfield, Indiana, took his HUGE bowl of lemons and made a big glass of lemonade, eBay style of course!
If you take a moment and look around your home you will notice the many items you have are out of true desire not need. Tristan did just that. Along with his wife, he found numerous items, including an enormous big screen TV that wasn’t necessary in their home. They took these items and listed them at auction on eBay. They needed the money in their wallets more than hanging in their family room!
Before they knew it the items began to sell and sell – the lemonade was made! They were able to survive through this challenging time, much in part to their unified effort of becoming sellers on eBay.
Watch his story. It will inspire you. You too can make eBay Lemonade!
This is the 1st video of the eBay’s Money Maker series which will spotlight a family’s story on how selling on eBay impacted their life. I hope you are as excited as me to learn how eBay could help us all make some lemonade! You can also follow the series on Twitter, with #ebaymoney!
So, here’s the challenge…what “luxury” item would you be willing to sell to earn the family some extra money? Maybe it would be money for your next vacation or the special summer camp your daughter wants to go to? Look around your house and I guarantee you can find a number of items!
