That is a really creative site! I like that. Does Ebay have a way to pay you if these products get sold? That would be great if they did. I love the domain name too.

Very nice!

Richard don't you think that is a cool site and concept?

Thanks for the kind words. It took a couple of weeks to build the site, but it does well. Ebay pays well for helping them advertise. I wanted to share the site with you guys since I joined early this year. Please rss/bookmark the site.

You should put the link in your signature so everyone can see it.

I just think the idea is brilliant!

What was the inspiration to the idea?

My inspiration to build the site came from you guys. After reading all the inspirational testimonies on how people got started, I decided to build the website to make some money so that I could purchase my lawncare equipment. The site was published in February.

Harold,

Did you run a lawn care business before or any kind of business before? Or is this your first business?

Thanks for the accolades on my website (www.lawnCareAuction.com). This will be my first real business venture (lawncare). I built the website to raise funds for my lawncare equipment. Lawncare is a booming business in Texas with plenty of grass. I decided last year that I would open my own business when five lawncare businesses told me that they were unable to cut my grass due to overload. I am trying to get the word out about the site to generate some income. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Again, Thanks.
