Joy sells online on eBay and Amazon. She has been at it part time for 5 years and went full time in 2016. She does a bit of consulting but mostly earns her living from her online sales business.

Goals?

“For the last 6 years I was responsible for running someone else’s company. While it was a job I loved, I realized all that energy could be spent growing my own business and affording me more freedom over my life and my schedule. If I am going to be married to my work I want it to be my own business not someone else’s.

I started out selling primarily Health and Beauty items, mostly limited edition and discontinued makeup. My eBay business originally was comprised entirely of Retail Arbitrage. Now I also do vintage and thrifted items on eBay in addition to RA. I sell in a variety of categories on Amazon…toys, clothes, grocery, health and beauty, video games and more! I am 99% RA, 1% OA and am in the very early stages of finding a manufacturer for my first PL product.”

Moo-Lah

“Since I went full time growth has been amazing, and revenue for the year between Amazon and eBay will be in the 6 figures.”

Life Details

“I have a daughter who is 23 and in college studying business management, and a son who is 22 and works full time as a material handler. I am a coffee junkie and am an admin in the Facebook group, The Thrifting Board, which focuses on helping sellers who sell vintage and thrifted goods on eBay with a little Amazon mixed in. I’ve been blessed by a lot of sellers who’ve helped me along the way so I love to pay it forward helping in that group. Vintage Levi’s are kind of my area of expertise.”

What Does She Love About Scanner Monkey?

I adore how welcoming and friendly the group is. And so knowledgeable! I love how active and positive Jay and Cordelia are in the group.”
