sale? Think you’d like to try your hand at starting your own business on eBay but don’t know where to begin?
If so, this course will show you exactly how to get started. The instruction will be entirely video-based. The first lectures will be normal classroom style, and then after that all videos will be views of the instructor's web browser with the accompanying audio describing what is happening.
