But for real? Online sales consultant.

Of course, been doing this for 20+ years (running my own business of buying and selling), and my father still tells me I've never had a "real job"...
Lol sounds like my dad

If your family or friends do not know what you do they are not much of a family or friend.

In fact I always help many family members, young ones like nieces and nephews with finding things to sell on ebay when they need money etc.

They all know I am the ebay queen.

Well im not trying to hide anything and when they ask I tell them becuz I can sell them stuff at 30% off retail or even more. I sell a lot of stuff that way to their kids they pay cash which is even better.

Even workers at the bank ask me and have bought things from me

I got bored of telling people what I do. Now I just make up random professions to spice things up. Sometimes I'm a stunt man, sometimes I'm a volunteer at the local dogs home, sometimes I'm a religious leader and sometimes I say "I work for the government. I'm not allowed to say what I do,"....that's always a good one ;-)

But all my friend and everyone here knows I'm just a student and an eBay seller :-)
