The Woman Behind the Blog
Hey there! My name is Denise Oliveri and I am a 40-something year-old woman from Virginia. I am the mother of 3 grown young men and have been married to my best friend for 23 years. My husband and I homeschooled our boys all of their school years and that season of my life is over.
I have always wanted to be an entrepreneur since I can remember. Back in 2004 I built a fairly large and very successful preschool Sunday School website, which I wound up selling to a well-known children’s crafts website. I felt lost without my “baby” in my possession anymore, so I started writing articles for an online magazine for a few years. This too was lucrative until the company sold out and I had nothing to do. What was next?
I had a pretty successful eBay business for a few years with a niche in Christian items. I then got seriously into attending estate sales and fell in love with buying vintage items, which evolved into changing directions with my eBay store. Now I am happily able to buy new and gently used items from anywhere I can find good sales and through estate sales. So, I wanted to start this blog in order to help new sellers on eBay see that they can start a thriving and profitable business on eBay. eBay can be a scary place with all of their policies, choices, and designs. I am trying to break it all down to make eBay seller-friendly.
I would LOVE to have input from other veteran eBayers because knowledge is power! What works for one seller may be the trick for a new seller and a community of help is great. There is enough eBay to go around for everyone, so get out there and sell!
