Continued from my previous submission:
What I really wanted to tell you is how your chapter called Make More on Ebay has assisted me in advancing my corporate career. Currently, I work for a major insurance firm and almost everyone must start at an entry level position my education is in marketing and I really want a marketing position at the company. (I am doing this career until I start my own investment firm and become a financial advisor since you have inspired me to change gears!) Well my company is huge and it is hard to get positions and meet important people. As I was reading your chapter about ebay I was thinking I have always wanted to sell stuff on ebay but what? Well, I have a collection of baseball cards–at first I thought that would be perfect, but then I changed my mind because of time constraints and little knowledge or interest in baseball. Well I decided to sell the collection on our corporate classifieds website. Although it took a few weeks to sell the collection the experience has been priceless. I have met so many important people over these cards. As I was responding to inquirers about the cards I began learning about the company new projects and key players. I even had a director offer to spend some time with me going over a possible position in his department. I can not even begin to thank you enough for sharing your inspiration and knowledge, again I must say you are so AWESOME!
Thanks a million Mr. Bach! You’re the greatest!
