E-Commerce is the third best industry for starting a business, according to USAToday’s list of Top 5 Industries for 2017. It is an industry that anyone, and I mean anyone, can start for just a very small investment. Some “Ecompreneurs” start with less than $50 and go to yard sales or thrift stores to find little treasures they can turn for a profit, while others start for several hundred dollars and buy items from overseas.
Importing items from overseas has become a very simple process with the speed of the internet and modern technology. A laptop and a cell phone comprise the complete business office of many importing Ecompreneurs.
They simply do a search for a product, find it from an overseas company, then contact that company via What’sApp or email, complete their purchase and have the items sent to their home where they are able tore-sell it online or via one of the many selling apps. Gone are the days of spending hundreds of thousands of dollars to open a business that will probably not profit within the first 3 years or which, statistically will be closed by the end of the first 5years. For those individuals willing to think outside the box and put a little sweat equity into their week instead of watching t.v. for 2 hours per day, this may be a gem of a possibility!
I was able to start my E-comm business with $800 and turn that into over $80,000 within one year’s time. It was actually one of the most exciting and fun projects I have ever done and it has proven to be an amazing, life-changing and family-changing journey.
There’s a quote that says “What you do today affects seven generations into the future.” What are you doing to ensure the financial well-being of your great-great-great-great-great-grandchildren??
