An eBay Businesswoman Takes Care of Her Son

Latest posts by Joel Welsh (see all)

One of my favorite “start your own business stories” is of Brandi Ramos in southern Illinois. An army veteran, single mom with an autistic son, Brandi was motivated to start an eBay business so that she could earn a living while spending time at home with her son. But what to sell?

She simply started out by putting up garage sale stuff for auction, learned the eBay business model and now sells big and tall clothing to people all over the world from her eBay store Buy BIG from Brandi..

We met her at the eBay Live! conference in San Jose and you can meet her by listening to the radio show we did from the packed house at the conference.

Motivational? Oh yeah.
