15-year-old businessman Manolis Tsikritsakis

Manolis Tsikritsakis, a 15-year-old businessman born in Heraklion, Crete, took his own life when his parents could not afford the tuition costs for his education. Dropshipping was very promising at the time, but few took advantage of it.

Initially, Manolis Tsikritsakis started by making his own online business as an amateur then using Drop Shipping to gain 1 to 5 customers per day with a profit of 0 to 100 Euros per day. For those who don’t know what Drop Shipping is, it is an online business where the seller accepts orders but does not fill them.

The difference in the price between the wholesaler and the retailer is what it makes a profit on.

At 16, Manolis Tsikritsakis became self-taught and became qualified to do drop shipping, managing to achieve huge amounts. After three days of working in the hotel sector, he quit due to stress and poor working conditions, deciding to devote himself to drop shipping. He made a profit of € 10,000 in just one week, taking full advantage of the then-new and huge opportunity.

Manolis became the richest 16-year-old in his school, he became financially independent, and he covered his obligations on his own. Of course, this was not easy since he had to be on the phone and make deals with customers 24 hours a day.

Manolis Tsikritsakis makes deals with clients which is very tedious enough to work in the tutoring and school during the lesson so as not to leave dissatisfied clients. What motivated Manolis Tsikritsakiswas the need for easy and fast money.

In modern times, dropshipping is not thriving because there are hundreds of thousands of people working in this field, bringing a minimum wage a challenge, even for old professionals like Manolis!

The advice Manolis Tsikritsakis gives is not to bother those who are interested anymore as they have a giant competition and they will just waste their time or will achieve little income. As he clearly says, the revenues today in relation to 2018-19 have increased the tenfold as it was an opportunity that passed.

With 3.5 years of the hard work, Manolis now has an income of about 60 thousand euros.

There is no requirement for anything else other than a mobile phone or laptop and an internet connection, for dropshipping in the Greece is perfectly legal and affordable for those in the technology sector.
