Joe-ladbible If you, your kid, or the squatter living in your basement need a bit of motivation to get out there and hustle, then allow me to introduce you to a young entrepreneur named Joe.
Joe-ladbible At only 12-years-old, Joe noticed that his football card collection was looking a little weary and needed a tune-up. To find the cards he sought, Joe hopped onto eBay and began buying the cards he needed to complete his set.
While searching for the cards he needed, Joe discovered a major gap in the market that he could monetize. And what started as a personal hobby, ended up becoming a full-time job.
@joejoejms In a recent interview, Joe shared what led him down the path to become his own boss:
“I liked to think I undertook a somewhat business approach in the playground, but back then I never could have foreseen where I am now and what is occurring in the market.”
@joejoejms “I have always wanted to pursue something I love and am passionate about, and so as my business grew the opportunity sort of fell into my lap.”
“At my young age with little expenses, I had created a small income stream for myself, and so I became increasingly confident in making my hobby a full-time business, especially given how low risk it was. That is why starting young was such an advantage, and still is!”
@joejoejms In regards to the pandemic affecting his business, Joe said:
“I am lucky because the lockdown was amazing for me. I trade mainly in Pokémon and Football cards nowadays (with some other toy lines on the side), and both these markets experienced significant growth during the first lockdown.”
@joejoejms “Given that so many people had time on their hands, people of my generation had the opportunity to relive our younger years. This meant uncovering old card collections, and as a result, lots of people came back into the hobby. This resulted in huge growth for the more established sellers like me.”
@joejoejms “This boom was also accompanied by a wave of investors, who saw the growth as an opportunity to make money. These factors combined, meant prices appreciated dramatically.”
“On top of this, we saw popular names like Logan Paul and Logic get back into Pokémon, which has led to a second boom for sellers like me.”
@joejoejms Joe’s business has become so successful that eBay honored him with the eBay for Business Awards – an annual celebration to recognize the best of small businesses.
@joejoejms When asked if there was any advice he could offer to people with an entreprenurial desire, Joe said:
“I think the one piece of advice that I can offer through my experience is to back yourself. eBay is an accessible and non-judgmental platform.”
“If you have an idea, you’re passionate about or an innovative solution to a problem, don’t wait until tomorrow. Use your age to your advantage, take it as a ‘get out of jail free pass’ and pursue what you love.”
@joejoejms Those are wise words, Joe. All it takes is a bit of hustle.
