It’s Time To Put an End to the Confusion 

Since I’ve started blogging years ago (it feels like ages ago), I had no reason to separate my business thoughts from my personal life. Back then, I was flying solo. Meaning I was the business, I was my own brand, I did everything on my own. Etc.

But now, I’ve ventured into so many projects, started a New York based business, got married, made serious life changes like becoming vegan, and many other things.

Did I mention I am also older than when I started all of this? Which also comes with a few health changes.

Due to all of that, I think the time had come to separate the 2 Alexs’.

Business Alex will live partially here and will concentrate on the eBay, e-commerce, marketing ideas, news, and thoughts.

The other business Alex will soon move to a new domain with more of my own ideas, love for gadgets, computer science, bitcoin and cryptocurrency, and much more.

As in for “personal” Alex, well, I’m getting ready to reveal the all new blog about my personal life. I’ll talk about my adventures, health things, food, my angry opinions, and good thoughts, charity, and share some of my personal life events.

Look for the new home of “personal” Alex all over my social channels tomorrow,.

The :personal” blog is at: alex.gaber.co/

See you on the other side.

eBay Science Data equals HAPPY ME!

This little overdue post is about the eBay 2016 Fall Seller Update. Here’s a screenshot:

ebay seller update

Notice that I pointed the red arrows to my favorite parts? Of course you did.

eBay is finally bringing the data and the science of selling into the light. Not that eBay didn’t have any of this before this seller update, but it’s been kinda hard to get to the data within your eBay seller account before this point. Remember when I talked about eBay’s new Seller hub? That’s when eBay started bringing your seller’s data right in front of you.

I have been an advocate of selling scientifically based on data, whether it’s collected within your account or from the entire eBay eco-system. Many tools within eBay will show you just that, however an extensive source of data can be found through my number one source of eBay data, a company/service called Terapeak.

Terapeak has been collecting eBay data for years, you can check on your own data, the entire eBay marketplace, and even spy on your competition. All in a nice and easy to read data sheets.

I can not even begin to describe the humongous amount of POWER that I have combining both eBay’s own data and Terapeak’s historic data that helps me decide on my next successful selling strategies.

If you are an eBay seller or thinking of becoming one, I highly recommend that you signup with eBay to get their quarterly seller update newsletter.

9/11 My Ground Zero visit after 15 years (with video walk)

9-11-never-forget

15 Years has passed by since this horrifying day. Although I live in NYC and have watched One World Trade Center (AKA Freedom Tower) being built throughout the years, and even walked around it many times taking numerous pictures of the new building on my instagram (look below)…

I have never been to ground zero and the memorial. Why? It brings up sad memories for me whether it was friends I lost, to the thousands of lives lost, or even my own visit to the old towers almost a year before it happens.

It’s been 15 years and I have decided to go visit and pay respects in person instead of some online words.

I did broadcast my walk between the lights and Ground Zero, I’ll let the video speak to you instead. Here’s video link:
