Peter is a full-time Internet Entrepreneur and a well recognized, respected and rewarded eBay Silver PowerSeller. From March, 2001 to August, 2006, he has sold over 13,500 items on eBay.
On June 9, 1999, 11:53:22 PST, Peter registered his first eBay ID to search for Van Halen memorabilia.
In late January of 2001, 3 days after his birthday, his employment position was deleted from the company where he had worked hard for over 8 years. Devastated by this unfortunate and uncontrollable situation, serious changes were required to face the unemployment reality. But, instead of finding another ‘job’, he decided that he will not allow anyone to control his financial situation ever again.
During this difficult transition, by locking himself in his apartment for two weeks, he intensely studied the eBay web site and its community. Astonished by his discovery that many eBay Sellers were making an incredible income by selling products on eBay, he came across a success formula. By following this success formula and by using the eBay platform, he transformed his ideas into a unique line of products, which is now sold worldwide. His success formula created a six-figure business from scratch, with zero start-up investment. Within a year, by April of 2002, his monthly merchandise sales hit the record high of over CAD$20,000.00. All this was accomplished simply by studying the eBay platform, working from the comfort of his home, in the small community of Yorkton, Saskatchewan and without an MBA.
In addition to selling his own line of merchandise, Peter is also an eBay Trading Assistant for selling products on behalf of his clients.
Over the years, Peter has been known for his prompt communication with other eBay Members as he lives and breathes eBay night and day. He contributes to various on-line eBay Discussion Boards; attends eBay LIVE! Community Conferences and eBay.ca On the Road events. Many eBay Members already know him as a frequent Canadian caller on eBay Radio.
