My tentmaking business ....on eBay
The Apostle Paul from time to time would make and sell tents to provide an income to finance his missionary work .
"and because he was a tentmaker as they were, he stayed and worked with them."
2 Thessalonians 3:8
"nor did we eat anyone's food without paying for it. On the contrary, we worked night and day, labouring and toiling so that we would not be a burden to any of you."
Well I have my own little tentmaker business over on eBay ...inspired by the entrepreneurial spirit of Jon Mackenzie who first put me on to eBay a few years ago. I have from time to time sold one or two items .
Just recently though, I have taken it a little more seriously , driven by the basic household financial equation of "What comes in is not matching what goes out " ( I do have three daughters after all you know :-) )
I am trying to sell five or six household items a month ....so if you visit our house in a couple of years time your bound to comment on our minimalism ..cos there will be nothing left to flog :-)
Anyway I have also written another blog about my experience that will also help me with my "Financial equation" ...check it out ..its called "ebay4u" ...and if you are feel like clicking on a couple of the google adverts you will add 5p to towards solving the aforementioned equation :-)
Go on if you love me you wil give me a couple of clicks xx
So now you have two Whiteway blogs ...you really are spoilt :-)
