Matt & Amanda’s Amazing “Rags to Riches” eBay Story

Hi There,

It’s Matt and Amanda here and we began selling on eBay back in 2006. We wanted to take a quick moment to talk with you about the exciting future that awaits anyone who has a dream of earning a great income online by selling on eBay. Yes, even in this current uncertain economic climate. As you’ll see in this package, and as our story shows, eBay really is the online cash and time rich business model the dreamers said it would be.

We’re living proof that creating a lifestyle, “cash rich” business using eBay is not only possible but easily within reach of virtually anyone with a desire for success who is prepared to follow a proven system.

Although eBay has been around for years there are still hundreds of easy and profitable ways to make great profits – if you know how!

You see, one of the things people sometimes say is, “Yeah, easy for you… but I’m different and things are different now”.

Well, yes and no.

Yes, the world is different to when we started back in 2006… but no, we’re not anything special and don’t possess some magical powers other people don’t.

The world IS a continually changing place. Back in 2006, it was easy to make money on eBay. And right now, it is still easy to make money on eBay! Although of course things have changed… we’re making tens of thousands of dollars every month and hundreds of the people we teach are too!

The thing is, anyone can do it… so why not you? If you are determined to succeed you’re welcome to follow our system and create whatever level of success you desire.

The thing is, anyone can do it… so why not you? If you are determined to succeed you’re welcome to follow our system and create whatever level of success you desire.

We are ordinary, everyday people and the ordinariness of our story sometimes shocks others because they expect some “super human” type story.

Here’s a quick rundown so you know what we mean…

 

From Humble Beginnings Big Things Can Grow…

Amanda… I was born in Tasmania and come from a big, loving family of five kids and my mum and dad. We were the typical everyday working class Australian family.

At the age of 20, my whole family moved to Queensland where we all live now very close to each other. We have a happy, loving family.

I left school when I was 16 after having failed every subject except Religion and Art.

I was told I would never amount to anything and drifted along from job to job… I had 33 different jobs!

My 20s were a time of searching for something exciting that really interested me but deep down I had a desire to inspire and help people, I just didn’t know what it would be.

Finding a new job wasn’t the answer so I decided to go into business. I had 10 different businesses ranging from video stores to make up supplies to a pie van. I was called the Pie Princess!

I thought this would be really easy and simple but it turned out far from the dream… I was slogging my guts out for 70 hours a week and it turned out to be really hard and stressful. The only good thing really to come of it was meeting my husband, Matthew, who was a carpenter… who for some reason
became a really good repeat customer!

The last business I owned, which was really successful, was in personal training. I loved this because of my dream to inspire people and see results… but I couldn’t leverage my time and grow my income because you can only train a certain number of people every day.

Matt… My background is different in many ways to what a lot of people might have gone through. Initially, we came from a very poor financial background and didn’t have a lot of money.

My father was in the Air Force and we travelled around a lot from military base to base. In fact I was born on a base in Malaysia! So I have been very fortunate in that I have always had good discipline which has helped me accomplish things.

Did I want to be a carpenter forever? Is there more out there in the world for me? These were questions I started to ask myself. Maybe you’ve felt the same way?

The thing is, moving around a lot with dad’s work I would see the way people lived and see people in luxurious homes or nice places, and from that it really gave me the inner drive to go, “You know what? Maybe this is something that I can do, too. And why can’t I live an amazing lifestyle like I’ve seen other people achieve?” So that was really a main driver for me.

I left school when I was 15 and worked as a qualified carpenter for the next 15 years.

Now, one of the things that started to happen to me, as I progressed through my career, I started to work on very luxurious housing estates and really got to see a whole different side of the world and I started to question what I was doing. I really started to think back to my travelling Air Force days and the thoughts I had about success back then.

Did I want to be a carpenter forever? Is there more out there in the world for me? These were questions I started to ask myself.

Maybe you’ve felt the same way?

Anyway, one day I just decided it was time to change things. Fortunately Amanda was very supportive and when I started searching and set sail on a new path things started happening.

A Desire to NOT Trade Time for Dollars…

If you’re anything like us we were trying to find a better way to create an income from home, not having to go and work for other people or not having to trade time for dollars.

We’d tried a number of different things, from working 7 days a week doing property renovations to shares. We spent a fair bit of time and some money having a go (maybe you can relate to this?) but none of these seemed to work for us.

We then looked at trying to find a way to make money on the Internet.

We went to seminars. We even flew to Nashville, Tennessee, in the US, because there weren’t any top notch seminars in Australia at the time. And we started to look for the process of how we could educate ourselves on this brand new industry, and how we could really turn it into something that would work for us.

You name it, we tried it… affiliate marketing, selling eBooks, making websites, and really just fumbling around trying to find something that would suit us.

We tried all the latest gurus and their newest techniques… but we were no closer to our goal (sound familiar?).

If you’re anything like us we were trying to find a better way to create an income from home, not having to go and work for other people or not having to trade time for dollars.

After about 12 months of trying to figure out how it could work for us, I (Matt) received an email about this eBay thing.

Now because it was a “shopping thing” I wasn’t really interested initially so I asked Amanda to check it out.

Once she had a good look at it she started to realise that there was more to it than just another of the “latest fads” doing the rounds.

We soon realised it was actually more than just a place for people to sell their junk. There was actually a way we could start to create a business that we thought would work for us.

eBay Global Fast Facts

  • Founded in 1995, eBay Inc. has a global presence in 39 markets!
  • Marketplaces has approximately 95.9 million active users worldwide.
  • Yearly sales topped $62.5 billion.
  • eBay.com users trade $1,864 worth of goods on the site every second.
  • The most expensive item sold on eBay to date is a private business jet for $4.9 million.
What other business lets you work from home, on your own schedule, with zero to minimum up-front costs and 95.9 million customers waiting to potentially buy from you?

Within our first six months we were turning over a minimum of $50,000 a month! … to this day we still have an eBay business that turns out thousands (and thousands) of dollars of profit every month.

It really was… an amazing opportunity we never knew existed

What appealed was:

  • The size of the market… 300 million people registered on eBay
  • Most of these were shoppers looking to spend money
  • We didn’t need an expensive and confusing website
  • We didn’t have to worry about SEO or our business being destroyed by the next guru’s latest plug-in or Google changing the rules
  • We didn’t have to drive traffic and learn all that “techie” stuff
  • We could see that 95% of sellers on eBay really didn’t know what they were doing which meant a massive opportunity existed (and still does!)
  • We realised if we went about this the right way we could position ourselves in the top 5% of sellers and make a lot of money and really leverage our time

So what we did was plunge headlong into eBay and invested over $30,000 of our own money into our eBay education finding out from the world’s top sellers how to make it work.

Without trying to sound big-headed, we wanted to become the best in the world because we knew that led to profits and success.

From here we quickly started selling everyday household items on eBay.

Within our first six months we were turning over a minimum of $50,000 a month!

This became our norm and we continued to do this for many years and to this day we still have an eBay business that turns out thousands (and thousands) of dollars of profit every month.

The best part is, most of our money comes in while we sleep because our business is now 90% automated, which gives us a lifestyle most only dream of and freedom to do the things we love.

One question we get asked from time to time is…

If You Really are Doing So Well, Why Bother Teaching
Others Your Secrets and Risk Losing Money?

The thing is… and we would never have believed it ourselves when we were stuck on the swapping time for money treadmill… because we got our eBay business to the point it was predominantly automated, we found we had a lot of spare time.

Don’t get us wrong, we still love owning our time and would never go back to the “old days”… but working for a couple of hours a day and then doing nothing is actually quite boring.

It wasn’t at first. But there is only so much shopping, coffee, surfing, running you can do before your mind starts thinking “What’s next?”

We simply found it wasn’t stimulating enough being stuck at home all day with not a lot to do.

I suggested to Amanda that maybe she might be interested in teaching people what we do with regards to our successful eBay system and strategy.

Initially she had reservations, even commenting, ‘Geez, who would really want to know how to do this?’

So from the beginning of 2007, we have really kicked off this journey of delivering eBay education courses and have now been doing this all over the world, even in front of audiences as large as 4000 people in the United Kingdom.

We thought it might just be small workshops on a Saturday afternoon or something like that.

We decided to do some test advertising in the newspapers and were surprised by the amazing response.

It seemed natural then just to take things further and this is where our story gets interesting for you, and has certainly been interesting for our many successful students.

What we then decided to do was to create our Magic Of Making Money on eBay Program, and from there we created a number of different eBay courses, home study courses, three-day workshops, and live one-on-one mentoring.

The live mentoring is actually delivered by our eBay education specialists, who work full time from our office on the Gold Coast.

This has been how Amanda has been able to live her dream of helping and inspiring others to live theirs and yep, Matt thinks it’s pretty cool too!

So from the beginning of 2007, we have really kicked off this journey of delivering eBay education courses and have now been doing this all over the world, even in front of audiences as large as 4000 people in the United Kingdom.

The really inspiring thing for us is that we now teach people from many cultures and all walks of life (people from Hong Kong, Sweden, Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia, the US, New Zealand and Argentina) how to create their dream lifestyle business though eBay.
