  1. April 2023. Almost 4 years have passed since I left my previous business. My anxiety disorder, of which I was not aware, has driven me to my bed and even that wasn’t the safest place I could be in. With heart rate of 240 beats per minute while resting and about a dozen of other symptoms that my brain could only interpret as a danger to my life I have realised what battle was ahead of me. Having lost all my former confidence, two months after I decided to make my first steps to recovery I opened my eBay store, Offset Guitars UK, a startup with an investment of just £400 pounds that generated a total revenue of 24 thousand pounds in just 10 months. After becoming a Top Rated Seller this year and finding a niche in the market the store is now focused on offering used electric guitars and basses with current stock worth over 10 thousand pounds. Thanks to ebay I have managed to establish a reputation which brings new as well as old customers. A 10 thousand pounds award would be invaluable to further invest in my business’ development. Much of it would provide professional and thus expensive tools needed to further improve the quality of goods offered in my store. It would also help to pay for the ebay store subscription which is one of the best tools that helps to attract new buyers. The success of my new business, in my opinion, will be the key to my recovery.
