happy b-day!

ok, guys, i need your opinion.

first, i'm going to start doing a life shifting.  shift from computers back to 100% music. there is no timeline, i'm just going to focus a bit differently.

the thing is, the programs i write and sell won't always be what people are looking for.  technology changes, people's needs change, better competition, etc etc...

however, i do have the best jazz piano site online, and we're never going to run out of people who want to learn about jazz piano.

so, my first step, and this is where i want your input, is to build a learn jazz piano store where i sell my stuff and you can sell your stuff.

the idea is simple.  everyone has paypal accounts.  when someone buys a book,  cd, or whatever, the money goes into my paypal account.  an email goes to the seller so the seller knows that something was sold and needs to be sent to the buyer.

at the end of every month, i transfer money into the sellers paypal accounts (this will actually happen a month later to cover any delivery problems).  my commission is 25% of the sales price, which is very competitive with similar services out there.

the question i have, should i put the time into making this  happen? i figure it would take no more than a week to get going.  

will anyone want to sell their stuff here knowing that they will have one of the largest jazz piano enthusiast audiences around?  

thing is, i'm probably going to make it  anyway because of the jazz etude and studies book i'm working on.

thanks for listening!
