A Buyer's Perspective:

MaxSold has become an obsession. I am a widow and not rich, but I have gotten some of the nicest furniture from MaxSold auctions. It makes me feel rich. I buy from about one a month. (Sometimes two in one day, though! When I'm feeling really energetic.) I've always liked real-life auctions but the online auctions run by MaxSold are even better. I can take my time, study the pictures, evaluate the space in my house, and consider how much work it will be to pick it up. And then I can set a high bid and they do the work for me.

---Best buy so far: a bed worth 2300 for 112 bucks. (like new--sleigh bed priced at 450 new and a queen-sized Sleep Number platform and mattress!)
---Most loved buys so far: a few pieces of pottery I love, a Keurig coffee maker, and a drop leaf side table.

It always feels a bit like a party when we pick up our items. The employees and the other buyers are always helpful and friendly and when the owners who are downsizing are present, I've always enjoyed talking to them and finding out where they are going. I've met some of the most interesting people--some going to nursing homes, but one couple retiring to a South Seas island.

I tell everyone I know about MaxSold (I've gotten some friends from all over the country buying now), and now I've told you. So much fun for the whole family and, honestly? I usually spend less than it would cost to take the kids to dinner and the movies.

I took a couple of courses from Udemy and liked them--it's much like Amazon in that people are allowed to load their courses up and Udemy doesn't censor them or vouch for them. Just as you might get a bad self-published book on Amazon, you may get bad courses on Udemy.

The good thing is that if you get a bad course you are able to get your money back. 100% back. No questions asked. So there's no risk in signing up for courses.

I liked the model so much--I'm all for letting people sell what they want and letting the market dictate how long they stay in business--that I made some courses and put them on Udemy.

Both buying and selling on Udemy have been great experiences for me. I've learned a ton and I've made a decent amount of money. I'm totally pleased and have told all my friends and family that they should be buying and selling on Udemy. It's a great marketplace and the staff are wonderful. Really first class.

I'm a literary agent and my job is to make my authors money. I can tell you this: Udemy pays course creators more than publishers pay authors. It's a wonderful deal.
