Episode #024: eCommerce and Dropshipping 101

Most of you may not know this, but I’ve been selling physical products for more than a decade now. It all started as an experiment on eBay back in 2005. Ever since then, I’ve dabbled on and off with selling my own physical products. I’ve also drop shipped products as well.

The reason I like physical products is because it’s one of the fastest way to become profitable and make money out there. You don’t need to wait months and years to build out a successful blog or brand. A physical product simply exists — it doesn’t need much explanation and selling.

Episode #022: Building a biz? The first question to ask yourself

In this podcast, I explain the importance of focusing on the right things when you’re just starting out. Most people, when starting a business, usually begin focusing on what kind of product to build. They obsess over the “perfect” product or service. They look at what competitors are doing and copy them. They have a billion ideas as to what kind of product to introduce to the marketplace.

But I believe this approach is gravely misguided. Instead, you should focus on something else.
