A couple of days ago, one of my buyers told me to take a look at his store on Lelong. He’s now in the same business as myself. Although he’s a guy, he adopted a female seller ID so that he would be more approachable from the perspective of buyers.
Competition hurts business, of course, but at the same time, the more the merrier, I say. This guy was my buyer and also a sort-of friend already so I don’t mind at all and wish him all the best in the business.
Besides, he said that we should consider getting into some sort of partnership which I am still figuring out since I am no longer able to put in as much time and commitment to the business. Meanwhile, I am just going to run the business myself and work on it as and when I could and at my own pace.
