eBayers are a colorful bunch

It is incredibly gratifying to hear members of our community tell us their stories. For many sellers, trading on eBay is the most empowering thing they’ve ever done in their life.

There are kids who gross a million dollars at 23 because they have found their niche in the eBay marketplace, and now teach others how to find their own. There are single moms who make a living by running their eBay business from home. Yesterday, I heard a disabled gentleman in a wheelchair say “eBay was a life-changing event for me”.

I guess Google employees have other perks, but they don’t often get to hear this kind of stuff.
