Back to the Beginning: Selling Things (posted Oct. 30, 2008)


Hi dear readers,

Recently I re-listed a bicycle trainer (turns a street bicycle into a stationary bicycle) on Craigslist after a couple of unsuccessful attempts at selling. I initially bought it on eBay to help me rehab my injuries. I was asking $50 less than what I had paid for it as it was still new in box, but when someone offered $75 – $100 less, I had a crazy, gleeful idea.

I told him I would make him a deal and sell it for $100 less if he wanted to, and could, make a donation to his favorite charity. He agreed! I did a little research and found shipping it to him would save him money and time, more money that could go to charity, so I shipped it yesterday, and he received it today.

He is training for a charity bike ride to raise funds for Breast Cancer. Isn’t that just the coolest?

It worked out he got the like new trainer for a good price, I got a little cash flow, and Breast Cancer will benefit too.

A nice, feel good win-win-win situation even in a tough economy! 🙂

TBI x3, that's me! If you had a Traumatic Brain Injury (or Injuries!) and knew you might not remember dates, events, people, etc., would you live each day differently? Would you give more, forgive more, heal more? I am. The statistics for me developing Dementia or Alzheimer's is a high possibility - one, because of the TBIs, and two - because I'm genetically predisposed. Come with me as this present moment is all we know we have... Wishing you all the best - today & always. Blessings, Love & Peace, RH
