Are you riding the eBay Drama Train?

Did you read the news?

Did you see the reports?

He said, she said a news website wrote it so it MUST be true. Hurry over and email Mr. Donahoe, OMG we must call out the troops. Our sales will be gone.
Better stop selling on eBay right now!

Email Obama let him know about eBay. He may be able to help put a stop to change!
Ya think?
Oh ya, Obama supports change, never mind don’t let him know about this tragedy of reported change.

Let’s see who can cash in on “The Fame” of some super secret news that MAY or MAY NOT be true. Let me waste more of my time seeking out as much negativity that I can.

Climb on board the drama train and enjoy that wonderful negative energy that feels so good.

Follow every comment. Keep track of those classy made-up names.

By the way, what day is this?

Oh who cares, I have drama to follow!

Drama is way more fun then selling on eBay.
Does drama pay your bills?

Excuse me, but how is this helping your career? All the time and energy spent on drama could be productive positive energy spent on making money and becoming a BETTER eBay seller!

Don’t worry about the changes coming.
Adjust your business accordingly and carry on.

Don’t worry about what he said/she said and worry more about YOU, your business your family and the bills. Too many people are losing homes and giving up.

Today I want to encourage you to NOT GIVE UP!

Become a better eBay seller and rise above the drama. Because it will indeed suck you in so fast that soon it will be next week and you will have no money. WHY?

Because you spent too much time riding the drama train!

I dare you to put all that energy into researching a new product to sell, listing items, editing current listings,educating , learning and/or doing some marketing for your business. Pull that drama train cord to STOP and get off that train now!

Walk away from the drama. Stay clear of it.

Negative energy produces negative results.
Positive energy produces positive results.

Changes are a part of every day life.

We decide!

Rise above the drama and continue on to become the best eBay seller you can be!

Thank you Danna! This is EXACTLY the reason I joined you on Virtual Online ! This positive energy and realistic outlook is what I need! The moment I realized I was getting sucked into the drama, I signed up on your site! Thank you for all you do!

I agree with you about avoiding the negativity Danna. It's way too easy to get trapped into that and it's a big timewaster too.

My recent blogpost touched on the same thing briefly:

As an online seller I can't afford to spend much time delving into the latest "controversy" and I don't really care to anyway.

Keep up the great work Danna! :-)

I couldn't have said it better Danna. You are exactly right. Being a drama tracker is totally non-productive. eBay has and always has had the best interests of the on-line selling community, at heart. These changes are for the benefit of everyone and everyone will benefit in the long run. But if they are kicking and screaming all the way to the bank, it will take them a lot longer to get there!

"Walk away from the drama. Stay clear of it." perfect statement

Love ya Bunches, Danna!

I have learned so much from you!

This is true for every business, especially online. Things you say come back to bite you too easily and they take way too much effort. Use your time effectively. I've learned that the hard way ;)
