BOSS RESELLER REMIX
If it's red, she'll buy it. If it isn't nailed down, she'll sell it. If it has numbers, she'll spreadsheet it. If it's chocolate, she'll eat it. If she tells you to "shut up and list", she's saying she wants you succeed. And if she wants you to succeed, she'll be your biggest cheerleader. She's Theresa Cox.
Starting as a seller on eBay, Theresa has since expanded to several platforms, emerging as an innovator in the selling community.

SUPER SALE TRISH
Trish's journey to eBay was an unusual one. When working in construction for 15 years, selling fashion online was not even a thought, but then an opportunity arose to buy an established women’s consignment shop. That turned out to be an unmitigated disaster. For four years she tried desperately to make it work and when it didn’t, Trish turned to eBay in a last ditch effort to bring in money to pay the rent. This one decision turned into a viable business that she didn’t even know was available to her. eBay gave Trish the ability to take a failing business and turn it into a six-figure viable, profitable and workable business. Trish is an expert in speaking the local Boston language which makes her invaluable as co-lead of the Wicked Smart eBay New England Sellers Group.

The simple task of changing your mind or an idea after many years of one repetitive process should be considered a human super power. After working corporate for 11+ years with the mindset of retiring happily, Wade's mind changed with one random thought of entrepreneurship and with that, a new hero was born, Wades Ventures, an online business that allowed more time to enjoy life with what counts most family, friends, and more importantly, like-minded business owners.
Now Wade has a purpose, a goal, and a vision. It’s time to build his dream. Along with branding himself on social media, Wade learned the craft of marketing, inspiring, and influencing. Making connections to help other business owners and himself through this journey is what Wade loves about having his own online business. Living life on his terms.

LAURIE ANN WONG
REFLECTIONS OF TRINITY
Laurie Ann Wong is one of the most prominent evangelists for eBay for Charity. Laurie founded Reflections of Trinity in 2003 as a resource center for those in crisis and opened their eBay store in 2005 as a direct seller to fund their charity. What began as a small supplement to their brick and mortar thrift store now provides a healthy 6 figure income for their community food pantry. eBay revenue generates funding to purchase food that feeds over 5,000 individuals each month and has supported the growth of Reflections of Trinity as the 2nd largest community food pantry in a tri-county area in Georgia.
A loyal eBay seller for 16 years, she is passionate about "selling for a cause" -teaching sellers how they can donate a portion of their sales to fund their favorite charity and receive reduced eBay fees for their generosity. Laurie is a proud mom of 6 & nana to 10.
Looking to make a change, Barry started selling random hard goods on eBay in 2017. In 2018 he dove into YouTube and soaked up knowledge about streetwear from channels such as Paul Cantu and Round Two before finding Katy & Vikki where Barry first learned about single stitch tees. Showing no fear, Barry jumped into the fast-moving Instagram vintage scene, quickly making a name for himself with his prolific hauls and signature look. The competitive nature of videogame sourcing in Barry's early days as a seller set him up with the unique skills needed to aggressively pursue vintage treasure at a time when t-shirts are one of the hottest categories in the reselling game. Not to be understated is Barry's ability to network and build relationships, bringing people together in business and friendship. He is the ultimate motivator and seller's seller.

Co-CEO & Founder
Clara has always had a passion for selling for as long as she can remember. Born and raised in Argentina, Clara’s first “flip” was selling candy for a small profit in elementary and middle school. Clara’s passion was put on hold as she earned her law degree and became a practicing lawyer, but the constant economical instability in Argentina encouraged Clara to explore the world. During her time in the USA, Clara was forced to sell her most prized possessions – vintage clothing and jewelry inherited from her recently deceased mom. It broke her heart but awakened her passion for selling once again. When Amanda and Clara met and bonded over their shared love for selling, they quickly became a dynamic duo – sourcing the best inventory far and wide for their website and marketplace profiles. When Clara’s arthritis threatened her ability to bear the tedious listing process, Amanda and Clara knew they had to make a faster and easier way to crosspost... and just like that List Perfectly was born.
Co-CEO & Founder
Amanda Morse has always seen challenges as opportunities. So when it came to creating List Perfectly, Amanda did what she does best – she jumped in with both feet. Amanda’s career began by serving as a US Marine Reservist to help finance her education at the University of Michigan. True to her entrepreneurial spirit, at this same time Amanda was working 3 other jobs and leading as President of her student housing co-op. After college she dove into the corporate world and found herself longing for more. Determined to be her own boss she started a business that ultimately turned into reselling full time. When Amanda and Clara met and bonded over their shared passion for reselling they quickly became a dynamic duo, sourcing the best inventory far and wide for their website and marketplace profiles. When Clara’s arthritis threatened their ability to list products, Amanda taught herself to code and created the solution we now call List Perfectly.

Shelley is currently a Sr Product Manager on eBay's Selling Team. She's been with eBay for over 9 years after a 12-year career with Yahoo!. At her eBay orientation she got very emotional (yes, cried) when they showed the video of sellers telling how eBay has impacted their lives. These were real families who sold on eBay to put a roof over their heads and food on the table. That was all she needed to know to tell her she was in the right place.
While she sold here and there over the years, Shelley's "aha" moment with selling came when she bought 10 vintage cross stitch kits on Facebook for $15 and turned that into more than $300. A reseller was born and the thrill of the hunt for items to flip had her hooked. She knew she was all in when she had to buy shelving units for her office and garage to store her merchandise. Shelley still enjoys finding vintage cross stitch kits but has found her real love in reselling vintage Christmas items and knows she’s found her next career when she retires from eBay one day.
Sheila Dhake is an experienced Community Manager at eBay who currently works on strategies to bring together eBay enthusiasts in a peer-to-peer support Community. Community members can ask questions about their buying and selling experience, help one another, hear from eBay representatives and build a Community with others. Often times Community members build life-long connections and friendships. Sheila previously worked at Google managing and building award-winning Communities from the ground up.
In her spare time, Sheila likes to travel, hike and cook. Her specialties include vegan and vegetarian dishes of all sorts of ethnic cuisines.

THE CHARMED LV
Las Vegas Seller
Mike worked his entire life beginning at age of 12, in the construction industry doing carpentry and painting. In 2018 he suffered a work-related injury that rendered him unable to do the same work – the only career he’d ever known. He was left at home, unpaid, awaiting surgery, and his future was uncertain. While recovering from surgery his wife encouraged him to sell a rare pocket knife on eBay. With a fast turn around and instant payout, he was inspired to resell online for a living. He knew to grow into a business, he’d need to find ways to source inventory other than scouring the house and garage. He immersed himself in reseller videos to learn as much as he could.
Today, Mike continues to grow his business selling hard goods, electronics, clothing, and tons of what he refers to as ‘tricky shippers’ on multiple platforms. He has become active on social media, handing out encouragement, tips, and advice to others. He likes to share his failures, as well as his successes, to help others benefit from his experiences.
DYNASTY'S FASHION BOUTIQUE
Las Vegas Seller
Danielle graduated from The Richard Stockton College of NJ with a BA in Psychology, with a few completed MBA courses. She worked for many years as an administrative assistant to several companies and while Danielle had no difficulty obtaining jobs, they never lasted long because working for others was not her thing. As a result she found herself constantly having to hustle to put food on the table for her daughter, pay bills for her family, and care for a sick mother. This led to many cutesy girl jobs that made a lot of money but never lasted or held her attention for long, as there was no future. Cutesy jobs lacked the ability to provide her with what she needed most, people with substance, with real dreams and goals. Danielle eventually found herself in Las Vegas where through mutual friends she met Victoria, whom from the moment she met was fun, friendly, hilarious, and welcoming. Vikki connected her with a group of reseller friends who took Danielle under their wing and showed her the ropes. Four years later she has a store called Dynasty’s Fashion Boutique & More which sells women's clothing and beyond. Danielle is still a work in progress always willing to work and learn and gets by with the help of her amazing reseller friends.
