Feb 12, 2008
Having a eBay business is an attractive proposition to many, for several reasons but probably the most compelling is that it requires a very small up front investment when compared to a regular off line business.Plus also within a matter of hours you can be building an eBay business from the comfort of your own home.

In addition it may be possible if you have a popular hobby that you can run as an eBay business that gives you the chance to interact with people who enjoy your hobby as much as you do.

eBay is in demand because on the whole we all love buying things sometimes they will be gifts for a loved one but most of use spend money on our own interests, hobbies and passions.The vast majority of us have such busy lives that we don't have time to travel often many miles to found the things we want and can't find available in our local malls. It is this need which many people have that makes running a niche ebay business so lucrative.

Some people love the excitement of running eBay auctions they get a great buzz from watching people excitedly bidding for there most wanted items.I can still remember a few years ago sitting there constantly watching my first eBay listing refreshing the page to check I hadn't missed anyone's bid.

For some the opportunity to work from home is a massive excitement and for others a necessity.Running a home business is ideal if you have to stay at home to look after young children, or are caring for a loved one or family member.My own motivation for starting an eBay business was to stay at home to care for my disabled wife.

Another big bonus is you can wave goodbye to those ever growing gas bills as the cost of travelling to work continues to spiral ever upward. I can still recall looking out of my bedroom window watching my neighbour scraping ice from his car windshield while I looked forward to a day in the warm in front of my PC.

Another big plus to running a business from home is you can claim tax deductions on your tax return form with the IRS (or your own tax authoirty) this may vary be you will be able to claim something for use of your home in your business. Make sure you consult your tax adviser to avoid any problems in the future.

The hours you choose to work when running an eBay business are pretty much down to your own choice. Since eBay is a global market place and auctions can last several days you have the opportunity to work hours to suit. If you are a night time person you can work at night if you are an early riser you can work those hours also. This means you can spend more time with your family and watch your kids growing up while other parents are at work.

In fact you can pretty much work hours to suit your schedule and don't forget every hour you work is for you and your family not some boss who tells you what to do every 5 minutes.

Now your destiny is in your hands, you can decide how fast or slow you develop your business, what to sell and even how much you want to earn to a large extent.

So remember a very wise man once said - "If you are doing something you love you will never work a day in your life". Now all that is left is to just get started.
