The eBay phenomenon may be the greatest opportunity for home-based entrepreneurs ever. With close to zero start-up costs and a worldwide customer base of 150 million people, the little guy can now compete on a level playing field with huge corporations. Although TV infomercials and eBay itself are teeming with hucksters trying to sell advice, wholesale lists, and auction software to help you jump on the eBay bandwagon, 99 percent of it is junk and unnecessary. In October 2001 Ginsberg had a modest business selling high-end pool tables and tried selling one on eBay on a dare. For him, the rest is history. He now runs a million-dollar eBay business and ships pool tables all over the country.

Barbara Brabec

From Booklist
Now qualifying as a bona fide crafts business guru, Brabec begins her fifth opus by recollecting questions she herself posed as a novice homeworker. That type of reminiscence means that Brabec does indeed understand the just plain puzzlements of everyday self-employed business life--whether related to crafts or not. In alphabetical order, starting with the subject of accountants, topics are handled either straightforwardly or with a question or two.

One hundred percent serious? Not quite. Brabec gleefully reports useful "from the front" stories, and she doesn't hesitate to express some...
