Mac Griffiths of eBay store MDG Sales says, “Being present and attentive are important aspects of being a better father, and eBay has certainly helped me with that. Chasing the almighty dollar might be the starting point of beginning your own business, but if it’s the endgame, I don’t believe there will be much satisfaction in it. Balancing time spent providing for family and time spent with family is ultimately a more rewarding endeavor.”
