Table: Going, Going...Gone!


Managerial-class moms who are ditching Corporate America are finding a career on eBay. Some of the reasons:

IDEAL "STOP-OUT" JOB

No more hour-long commutes, inflexible bosses, and office politics

ATTENTION TO DETAIL

A common trait among women that can hurt them in corporations becomes a major plus online

ULTIMATE EQUALIZER

Small sellers can use their higher level of customer service to compete with big companies

SUPPLY-CHAIN SHOPPING

FAMILY BONDING

Many women enlist their kids, siblings, parents, and spouses in the business
