In virtually any business on the planet, to stay ahead of the curve you constantly have to reinvent yourself and your business, and an eBay business is no exception.
In fact, the eBay environment often times changes faster than most industries and traditional retail (except for technology of course, which seems to change every five minutes).
For any business, the ultimate goal is to be able to step away from it all and still earn income while you pursue other ventures or maybe sit around somewhere on a beach…
But the problem is that it seems very difficult to be able to get your eBay business on auto-pilot. The longer you attempt to keep the same old products up at the same old prices, the more money you will likely lose from listings that aren’t converting quickly enough.
If you want to step away from your eBay business, the best thing you can do is train someone beneath you to replace the work you used to do. Arm them with every last bit of knowledge you have so they can adequately fill your shoes.
I know sometimes it seems impossible, but it can be done… Keep at it!!!
