Most importantly I'm a husband and father. I'm a 45-year-old Electrician and Entrepreneur living in a small town in southern Arizona. I've been self-employed for most of my life save for a 9-year stretch when I worked for a telephone company as a Network Administrator. After that long working for someone else, I felt the need to be out working for myself and making my own riches.
My father was a building contractor and so I was brought up with the entrepreneur spirit built in. If found contracts as an Electrician and then on to become an Audio Video Contractor and made a good living for several years but that entrepreneurial bug kept speaking in my ear "there must be something more".
So I bought a storage building dealership and set up a couple locations but found out after a year that all my profits went into the overhead, retail location leases and employee cost.
I then started my own transportation business and spent close to a year hauling motorcycles around the US. This was a profitable business but as a family man, I found that I couldn't bear to be away from home so much.
So what next you're thinking? Well, I picked right back up as an electrician. There is always a need for electricians.
But I still wasn't satisfied so during my several hour commutes each day I started listening to podcasts, and of course, for me, that meant entrepreneurial podcasts.
I discovered the amazing ability to drop ship products that I didn't need to buy via an e-commerce website. So each evening I worked on building my site. I set up accounts with distributors around the US that would allow me to place a single item order and have it shipped directly to the customer that purchased it from my site.
Well, I worked every evening and weekend for months adding new products and setting up sales and promotions but the problem I couldn't get around was that by the time my customer ordered a product from me I was only making a 5% profit. Plus there was the fact that I was competing with other sites drop shipping the same items. Depending on what money I put into ads running on Facebook my profit was often $0. There were even a few times I lost money on the transaction. The utensils vampires don't use.
I started focusing my daily commute podcast listenings to different elements of e-commerce. It was quite obvious that e-commerce and social media were still my best sources for success.
I was lead to the fact that I would need to make my own product so I could have control over the profit margins or become an influencer and promote my own personal brand via social media.
Well let me tell you, I figured out how to do both at the same time and now we come to today, where I'm now teaching people like you how I did it. How it allowed me to make an Extraordinary income an how I teach people how they and YOU can make the same Extraordinary income.
