Diana Barnum, a Hilliard-based Education Specialist trained by eBay, is offering local residents the chance to learn tips and tricks for selling on eBay. Barnum has been an active registered Ebay user since 2000. Among those she helps train about eBay are people who have been released from rehab facilities and seek a better way of life with new income possibilities. She also instructs inmates in local prisons who have an average of under 5 years of their sentences left to serve and are about to re-enter society. Not only are the inmate residents learning to prepare for making money once they are released, they learn for their families who seek money-making opportunities now for their expenses; i.e. for travel money on visitation day, for medical expenses, for bills, for day-to-day life and more. Barnum is available for interview immediately and can provide your audience with best practices for buying and selling on eBay.
