About Jayne Perry

Jayne Perry went from eBay Novice to pro when she helped propel her husband's eBay mania into a full-time home business. They soon reached an upper-tier PowerSeller rating, the frequent-flier tier of eBay sellers. They hired two part-time employees. They maximized their income. All with the help of her insight.
