You've heard the tales of the eBay millionaires: People like Linda Lightman (of Linda's Stuff) who started reselling clothes from their closets online, and eventually turned that practice into a profitable business. Then there are the companies with San Francisco ties that started in a similar fashion, combining a killer social media strategy with eBay sales to launch their own business. But how do you go from selling the occasional dress you've already Instagrammed to full-fledged Internet entrepreneur? Poshmark has a few suggestions.
This weekend, the social shopping platform is hosting PoshFest, its second annual user conference, in San Francisco. The event is designed for anyone who wants to take a Poshmark closet to the next level, whether that means running a legitimate business sourcing and selling clothes or simply learning how to sell what you don't need out of your closet.
Interested? The conference will be Saturday, November 8th and Sunday, November 9th at the San Francisco Design Center Galleria and Poshmark headquarters. Tickets ($179-$249) aren't cheap, but could be worth the price of admission if you actually become a Poshmark millionaire. More information is available on Eventbrite.
