Through his business, Flexibrace, Jalmar Araujo imports an array of support wear products and sells them to eBay buyers around the world.
After moving from Brazil to the United States, Jalmar Araujo knew he wanted to continue playing soccer. When he went to buy the ankle supports he needed, however, he couldn't find them anywhere. So he ordered ten pairs from Brazil, kept two for himself, and sold the rest on eBay. Sixteen years later, Jalmar has turned his first $300 in eBay sales into a multi-million-dollar business, importing a vast array of support wear products and selling them to eBay buyers around the world. Today, international sales make up more than 40 percent of Jalmar's business. And he’s still playing soccer with the best of them.
