Note from: Busy Bee Bienlein Design Finds
Greetings from Michigan!
My name is Brenda Bienlein. My last name is German and pronounced Bean Line. A deaf friend of mine who was born in Germany told me that my last name means "Busy Bee" in German. How perfect! That fits me just right. I am certainly a busy bee as I fly from this activity to another activity throughout the day. This is why it is such a joy to be able to work from home. I have no set schedule or hours. I can be as flexible as I want and just go with the flow.
I start my day with prayer and ask the Lord what He wants me to do for Him that day. Then I just get started and do my best! Whatever happens, happens! No two days are the same and that is what makes my life interesting and stress-free.
I have been selling on eBay since 2000. A friend/neighbor got me started and she gets all the credit for encouraging me to be where I am today. Without her tutoring and help back when I first got started, I do not know if I would have continued or not. Life happens and both my friend and I moved away from where we first met. She no longer does eBay but here I am nine years later and a PowerSeller!
Being a PowerSeller certainly doesn't mean I know everything there is to know about eBay. I'm a lifetime learner and I am constantly learning new things on how to improve my business. I try not to overload myself with information as that just puts me at a standstill and nothing gets accomplished. I am selective about the mentors I follow.. and I strongly suggest you have some positive mentors in your life and in your business. These are the people that keep you going when the times get rough - and they will!
My newest mentor is Danna Crawford from Virtual Online Learning. I encourage you to check her site out. She offers different classes and very reasonable prices for membership and classes. I made her aware that I am deaf when I first signed up and she immediately bent over backwards helping me fit in. I was given PDF transcripts to her class (on blogging!) and she even captioned a video she posted about PayPal! How cool is that! I'm so blessed!
I invite you to stop by my ebay store, BienleinDesign Finds. Mention that you learned about me via this blog and I'll give you free shipping up to $10.00 off!
I also invite you to become a fan of BienleinDesign Finds Fan page on Facebook. That way you can keep posted on my latest listings. Never know what I will find that might be what you have been looking for!
Have a blessed day!
