Default Allow me to introduce myself

I signed up here back in 2007 and for about the next 5 years I did alright for myself. After receiving a ban I used various accounts among friends, family, and people hard up for cash. Sometimes the flat-rate worked out better then giving them a cut on each sale.

When I was first started out, naturally I started small, I remember people doubting me saying I'd get ripped off sending money to china even my own father. Luckily I was either in the right place at the right time or given I talked to various people up and down the east coast as well as talking to some people around the globe gave me a better perspective. Having been in college at the time (taking the scenic route) 3 schools 6 years 2 degrees. I put a lot of time and energy into my business I wanted it to be 100% on the level one day if you get my drift. To be concise, I was just about around that corner back in 2011 the money was flowing in; I got cocky, I argued with ebay, I DID NOT WEIGH RISK N REWARD.

Now that I'm older, a lot more patient, and willing to listen.I said in an earlier post that, I was (i guess reinstated) I opened a legit account, within the few months and try'd going all out for the holidays and realized how OUT OF TOUCH I was with eBay's new standards, policies and operations. Greed got the best of me, but still I had some people down south on the wholesale tip, so I was alright. But now a lot of my connections were bought by bigger companies (withing the past few years). Simple quick flips from easily accessible outlets the distribution chain had changed. Heavy Money was offered to me at one point, to back me but declined given the circumstances.

Basically to sum things up given I have ADHD a blessing and a curse, I quit my job wanted to focus on eBay full-time.. possibly get something going on ETSY given the right partner and strategy. I still feel I can bring a lot to the table with E-Commerce but then again I could use a mentor, consultant, or some positive people to swap ideas with or bounce ideas off one another.
If your one of those people feel free to PM me. Also not to sound like I'm sucking up to the mods, but they do a good job on here, and have always been polite, respectful, and helpful. Years ago I think I'd sign back in just to thanks Aspkin because what little tidbits he'd explain after buying the e-book or it could of been before that I gained a lot of insight. I like this forum and need to familiarize myself with it again, given I have a good amount of time on my hands. I know I'm rambling so I'll stop. I wish everyone a prosperous new year in selling, maintaining and growing wealth.

PS: Is there anyway I could change my handle? To be "PC" it just sounds too dumb now, but maybe I need that as a reminder to know where I once was and where I am now. Thank You - JB
