Patricia Perillo - Arizona Mom
Patricia is a stay at home mom from Arizona. She is married with three children ages 23, 20 & 16. She also as a 12 year old dog named Moe. Patricia used to work as an orthodontic assistant, but has been home for 6 years. She planned on going back to work when her youngest goes off to college, but with reselling getting busier she no longer sees the need to work outside the home.
Patricia found Poshmark by accident. In 2016 she was googling a dress that she was interested in purchasing. Poshmark came up. She ignored it and moved on. When she went to look for the dress a second time she decided to download the Poshmark app. She ended up purchasing several items for herself and her then 17 year old daughter. When her items arrived she realized they were from actual people and not a big name store.
Patricia decided that day to try reselling. She started selling clothes from her own closet. After educating herself by watching hours of YouTube videos, she started to grow her Poshmark closet. Patricia says it took her 8 months to understand the sharing, following, sourcing, offers, etc. Mercari and Ebay came later that year.
Reselling has allowed Patricia to make money to pickup where child support left off. She never saw a lapse in her income. She now uses her earning to pay for her daughter's college tuition.
Patricia is running a business she can be proud of. She is making money and fulfilling her dreams of growing her business beyond anything she could imagine.
