Hello, Bonjour, Howdy!!
Thank you for visiting and giving us your time. I am Ani from Sydney, Australia. I am an avid traveller and been on the road for the last 2 years.
Like most of you I did a 8-5 job and sometimes 2 jobs for many many years. First. I worked in Hospitality and then education & training. Though i enjoyed most of my jobs, I always secretly aspired to be an entrepreneur. Wishing and dreaming of having my own business where i have the freedom to do whatever i want, whenever i want. You see i never wanted to make millions of dollars ( I mean would be nice to have a couple of million in my bank, LOL). What I really really wanted was FREEDOM in the true sense. I wanted to wake up when i want, sleep when i want, work when i want, travel wherever i want and at the same time be financially independent. Now when i say financially independent i don't mean "just get by" I wanted to have an income which surpassed my day and evening job combined. Easier said then done and so my journey began.
My first foray was in the stock market back in 2005 and by the time i started to understand how it works we all know what happened in 2008:). Then i discovered ebay and started selling small items and slowly it began to grow. Ebay was huge back then. From small items i went on to different products and eventually had a proper store selling bits of everything. I was happy that the store was doing well, however it never gave me the income that i was looking for. I learned a lot about customer service, product sourcing, writing product descriptions, shipping, pricing, listing products at the right times etc. However what turned me off was the high ebay and paypal fees. It never allowed me to have those great margins. But most importantly I was too hesitant to go all in i.e. quit my job and pursue it full time.
Finally, after a lot of procrastination and few courses later I was running my own eCommerce company. Our website prices are very affordable mostly under 500 bucks and we do not compromise on quality. All our businesses come with premium ecommerce solutions with all the bells and whistles that you would expect from a premium business without the hefty price tag.
Finally, my advice to you, "Be brave to take the plunge and you will be surprised how things work out"
Look forward to assisting you achieve your goals and dreams.
