This article is so inspiring that get me put up here for everyone to read just in case you haven’t came across The Star today. It is about a success of this netpreneur should I say, using eBay as a platform to generate profits. What was the best part was in fact he abandoned his daily office life to get involved working from home fulltime. Read on, and get inspired!

KUALA LUMPUR: Chris Chan is a 30-year-old graduate who, like many in her generation, says no to a 9-to-5 office regime and refuses to be a slave to money.

Instead, she is trying to combine work with a balanced life. She has found a suitable income-generating way by selling through eBay.

“I earn about US$1,000 (about RM3,300) a month selling collectibles on eBay. I own my time and I can combine my love for travel with work, since I do need to go overseas to source for supplies,” she said.

Chan: ‘One will need to invest time, money and energy if one wants to make it big in business.’

“Selling through eBay is something a person can do to earn an income. Just like any other business, one will need to invest time, money and energy if one wants to make it big,” said Chan, an architecture graduate from Australia.

Chan started selling on eBay during her student days in Australia to earn pocket money. She first started by putting her used handbags and other things on sale online.

“My first sale was exhilarating. It was a pleasant surprise that others actually wanted to buy things I had used. From then, I was interested in eBay business and went through their online course to be a certified power seller,” said Chan.

The certification also allows her to train others on the art of selling professionally and ethically on eBay.

Chan will be sharing her experience at a talk How to Earn Extra Income via eBay and Google at the MCA 9-point party exhibition to be held at Putra World Trade Centre from Jan 18 to Jan 20. Her talk is on Jan 19.

Chan commended MCA for organising the exhibition and for recognising eBay as an income-generating source and taking advantage of the Internet boom.

Another speaker on Jan 19 is Sean Lee, CEO and director of Oscar Wealth Advisory Sdn Bhd, who will talk on “Money Works @ Wealth Management”. The talk that will be in English is scheduled to begin at 11am.

Among the topics he will cover are “Do you have a chance to be a millionaire?”, “How money works instead of just chasing it”, “Total wealth management” and “How to optimise your investment”.

The talk will include steps on how to plan your wealth, and the do’s and don’ts in financial planning.

Lee is a licensed financial planner with 15 years of experience under his belt. More information can be found at http://www.oscarwealth.com.
