Podcasts are a great way to learn more about your reselling business when you’re low on time. As a busy mom selling on both ebay and Poshmark, I listen to podcasts while commuting to work (when I still worked my 9-5), running errands, doing dishes, or even while I’m listing.
Hearing other resellers talk about all things ebay, Poshmark and more can keep you motivated and on top of recent news that’s important for all resellers.
How Reselling Podcasts Helped Me Quit My Job
Now that sounds a little dramatic, but stick with me.
One of the things that frustrated me the most while working my 9-5 job was not being able to do what I wanted to do. I wanted to run my own business and be in charge of my time and money so badly. I was missing all of this time with my then 1-year-old son because I had to drop him off super early in order to make the 1+ hour commute into work every day.
When I started listening to podcasts daily, I was learning so much about reselling, so when I went sourcing for new inventory, I had learned more of what to buy. This in turn helped me grow my business faster.
Beyond just learning more about what sells on ebay, I found a lot of motivation and inspiration from hearing the success stories of others that were reselling full-time.
In the messy middle of running a side hustle and having a full-time job, it can feel like there’s no end in sight. The days are long and you’re constantly, well, hustling. When you’ve got little ones at home, you get to throw in a nice big dose of mom guilt (at least for me), and you start to question why you’re adding this extra layer of stuff to do for a side hustle. You don’t need it.
So listening to these podcasts kept me going, even when it wasn’t always fun.

List of Reselling Podcasts
This is my favorite reselling podcast. They talk about ebay and Poshmark mostly including everything from what’s working, tips, and recent reselling news. They also cover topics about how to fit in reselling when working full-time.
This is the original reselling podcast that I started listening to when I first started reselling. It definitely made my 1+ hour commute (each way!) worthwhile. I’ve learned so much about reselling from these two. They talk about ebay mostly with some FBA thrown in there.
What’s unique about them is that they sell mostly antiques, collectibles and unique items so you’ll learn a lot of BOLOs through this podcast. If you live in a rural area, then this can be helpful because they talk about more unique items that they find in their rural area and ways they get creative about finding inventory.
They have their own take on reselling for sure, but it’s really interesting to hear about their perspective.
This is a good podcast as well. He interviews a lot of different kinds of resellers including a lot of Amazon sellers.
This is the official podcast from ebay themselves. While it can sometimes feel painfully scripted, there is really a lot of good information provided. Any reseller updates, news, trends, etc will come through the podcast.
He was one of the first resellers I saw that did Amazon FBA. His story is pretty inspiring, too. The podcast covers all areas of reselling from Amazon to Poshmark with a lot of interviews.
This one is relatively new but it’s done by experienced resellers covering all things reselling.
This is a new one to me. She covers all things fashion reselling with a big focus on Poshmark.
You may have noticed, but there really aren’t a lot of podcasts that focus on reselling. These are some of the ones that I found that are still active.
Every week, I try to make sure I listen to the Pure Hustle podcast to keep me on top of things and up to date and to Scavenger Life for new ideas on what I can be on the lookout for when I’m sourcing inventory.
I hope these podcasts help you stay motivated as you work on your reselling business.
If you’re still working a full-time job, then using these podcasts to learn and grow as a reseller during your commute can be a great way to make use of that dead time.
