A Message From The Author
Most people will do almost anything if the price is right. People will kill one
another, betray one another and steal for money. If a stranger were offered 10
million dollars to kill you, there is a chance they would take it. I am not saying this
to offend you, I am saying it because it is a statistical fact.

1 in 14 people say they would kill a person for 10 million dollars or more. Think of
the life 10 million can buy you. You would be able to afford anything you have
ever wanted and would never have to work again. And besides the person you
would be killing probably deserves it anyway, right?

“Get rich or die trying!”

So why it is that people will do almost anything if the price is right? It is because
even though money can't make you happy, it can definitely help. Think of all of
the problems you are having right now, could money solve these problems?
Could 10 million dollars make your dreams a reality, could that kind of money
give you the life you have always wanted?

For most of us money is the answer to all of our problems. And that is why most
people would do anything if they were offered the chance to become a
millionaire...it's a chance at their dream life.

But in my opinion the scariest thing that people will do for money is waste their
life by putting their lives and dreams on hold for a job. Almost everyone you see
around you when you are in a public place is wasting their own life for a couple of
thousand dollars a month. I can somewhat understand killing someone for 10
million dollars (I™m not saying I think it™s OK, just that I understand the concept),
but wasting your whole life for a couple of thousand dollars a
month seems insane to me.

What does your life mean to you? Is it important? Almost everybody will answer
"YES!" to that question. But I can prove almost everyone wrong. If your life is
important, than why does it take a backseat to money? Why do you ignore your
dreams for a tiny monthly paycheck? Why do you voluntarily agree to become a
slave to your boss? And if your life is so important to you than why do you rent it
out to your employer every single month?

It is quite disturbing to me how little some people's lives are worth to them. I can
probably buy someone's life for as little as $3,000 per month. I can make
someone commit over 12 hours a day to whatever I tell them, I can make them
work on weekends, put their job before their family and I can make them say bad
things about their friends if they are competing for the same job. I can do all of
this by hiring someone.

Besides the ridiculous things people will do for money the things most people are
not willing to do are simply insane! If kill, steal, cheat, lie, betray and waste their
life are some of the thing people will do for money¦then the stuff most people
are not willing to do must be truly horrible!

No, actually the stuff most people aren't willing to do for money is great, the stuff
most people won't do for money is actually what they should be doing in the first

If someone came up to you and said "here is 10 million dollars, this will be yours
if you can earn it" and left. Would you be interested? Would you start to think of
ways to earn that money? Yes, you probably would, but you would stop thinking
after a couple of days and give up.

Because the one thing most people are not willing to do for money is think for
themselves. The only way most people are willing to make money is if someone
tells them what to do and pays them for doing it. The problem with this is, most
people spend their whole life making someone else richer and all they get in
return is a small fraction of that person's money!

If you have a job, it is a sure bet that the person that pays you doesn't have your
best interest in mind. But when you work for someone else you can spend your
whole life looking after that person™s best interests. Doesn't that make you mad?
It makes me very mad because I'm under the impression that slavery was
abolished a long time ago!

What you need to do is what most people won™t, look after your own interests by
thinking for yourself. Stop ignoring your dreams, you and I both know that what
you dream about would cost a lot more than you will ever be able to afford if you
keep going the way you're going right now. If you don't look after your best
interests...no one else will.

What does your dream house look like? It is probably a gigantic castle,
somewhere on the beaches of the Mediterranean and it is probably surrounded
by beautiful palm trees. What is your dream car? I bet it's not a Toyota Camry,
it's probably a Ferrari or Porsche.

What do you want to devote your life to?
Probably something you love doing, it
could be traveling, fixing up old cars,
exploring the ocean or raising animals. But
whatever it is that you want to devote your
life to, I am 100% sure that it is not
some crappy job.

Now ask yourself, can I afford to own and
do everything I dream of if I keep doing
what I am doing?


Exactly. That is why you need to think for
yourself and work towards making your
dreams a reality. And by dreams I mean
your real dreams not those fake "realistic"
dreams you have adapted.

So what does all of this have to do with eBay? It has everything to with eBay,
because eBay is a real chance to turn your dreams into reality! eBay is not a
dream, it is not a lottery ticket or a get rich quick scam and it is not something
that is out of reach. It is a real possibility to make all of your dreams a reality and
finally start living the life you have always wanted.

So read and learn because this book could teach you to do something that can
change your life.

Stuff You Must Know

Tens of thousands of people are making a living selling on eBay. Thousands are
quitting their jobs and realizing they can earn much more money selling on eBay
that they could ever earn working for their boss. Some PowerSellers are selling
part time and making over $10,000 per week...I said PART TIME!! How
many hours per week are you working? How much money are you making? I bet
it's not ten thousand a week! So what do these big money sellers know that you
don't? Keep reading.

While making this book I talked to over 50 PowerSellers and had many fill out my
questionnaires. What are the most important things I learned from my research?
PowerSellers are just like you and me, PowerSellers are not genius and anyone
can become a PowerSeller.

Most PowerSellers I talked to were not able to give me any "secrets" or "magic
formulas". When I asked the question "is it a good or bad idea to have your
products drop-shipped directly from the supplier?" I had a lot of people answer
"huh? What's drop-shipping?"

I was amazed at how unorganized, uneducated and clueless some PowerSellers
are. I was amazed because like many people interested in eBay I believed that
PowerSellers were fine-tuned money making machines. Most PowerSellers are
NOT fine tuned money making machines, they are regular people.

If you apply half of what you learn in this book....you will be a

The big secret about eBay is: there are NO SECRETS!! The truth is that after
reading this book you will know more about running an eBay business than most
PowerSellers. Because most PowerSellers are just ordinary people that buy stuff
and sell it, most of them don't know much about business or the internet.
Success on eBay is a matter of getting things done not "secrets".

You can become a PowerSeller, the sooner you start the sooner you will be.
Selling on eBay is not as hard as many people think, it is extremely easy and
simple...YOU CAN DO IT! The risks are minimal, the opportunities are
unlimited, there is no rent or employees to pay. eBay markets your product for
you....so you don't need to worry about advertising...eBay is a beautiful thing!

To make tons of money you must apply what you learn. This book gives you
more than enough information to become successful selling on eBay. But to
