What Would William Wallace Say About eBay!

I've said it many times before, that 2008 will be the "Year of the 3P Seller" and even though we are half-way through the year I still believe this. IMO, eBay has made a huge mistake by not embracing the seller and empowering them to succeed rather than try and control them.

Freedom is what drives these small business owners and they don't do well when they are restricted. If they did they would choose to be employees rather than independent business people.

With over 19 million small businesses in the US (most of them sole proprietors) The company that empowers those entrepreneurs will be the ultimate winner, not the company that restricts them.

As you head to eBay Live, I figured I would play a clip from Braveheart to get you pumped up. Just please don't start a war or flash your kilts.
