Six Questions for you!



Six Questions

I’m probably the newest member of our Online Business Success Yahoo group and aside from Katarina who was the one who brought me into the group, and Beth, I don’t know too much about the other members. So, I thought this might be a good way of letting all of us know a little bit about each other by answering the following questions. Please take a moment and answer the questions below and let the rest of us know a bit about you! I'll go first...

1. What’s your ebay shop or online web site name?
Art-by-msr

2. How long have you been selling online?
I started on ebay on 4-2008 because I think my husband was getting tired of seeing all these paintings strewn about our house LOL! I'd been reading a bunch of books on painting and took some classes at our local college, and trying to learn all I could on painting. My family kept telling me that I could probably sell them online, sooooo….here I am!

3. What do you sell mostly?
Affordable and original works of art that I’ve painted.











4. What is your favorite item right now that you’re selling (on ebay or anywhere else)?
Yellow Zinnea Original Oil Painting

5. What do you want to learn from reading this blog?
There is so much I need to learn about selling online. I know most of the members just have a bunch of information that I'm totally unaware of, so maybe tips on selling online?

6. Have you quit your day job to sell online?
No. We have a family construction business that I’ve worked at for the last 17 years and our business is suffering from the “state of the economy” so consequently I have more time to paint (every cloud has a silver lining-lol). But I couldn’t possibly live off my paintings-not for the next couple of years, anyway!

Now, it's your turn!
