– How did the idea for your business come, what was your key driving force to become an entrepreneur and how did you come up with the name for your company?
“When I was 13 I saw people making money all over the internet, and I wanted to get in on the business. One of my personal friends/mentors was already taking advantage of Dropshipping and he helped me get started and taught me the ropes of eCommerce & marketing online. My driving factor was to get out of the 9-5 rate race, and finally retire from my parents. Knowing they have been working their entire life. DropshipVenture is the name of my consulting company, the way I came up with it was 3 years ago when I was 13 I started my Dropshipping Venture. That is where I get DropshipVenture from”.
– How did you raise funding for your venture?, how do you build a successful customer base? and how do you market your business, and which tactics have been most successful?
“I raised funding for my eCommerce businesses by selling candy in school to my classmates and teachers. I was able to bring around $1k doing this. To build my large customer base, I ran ads on almost all platforms like Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, Google, TikTok and I used multiple different strategies on each platform to build my customer base. um, I’ve marketed my products using social media platforms like Facebook, Snapchat, Instagram, Google, etc”.
– What kind of culture exists in your organization, and how did you establish it?. How did you get your idea or concept for the business and how do you advertise your product/service?
“The DropshipVenture Team is like a family, we’re all super close with each other and we support each other. Honestly I got much inspiration from many other people in the eCommerce space. Also I advertise using social media platforms.”
– What’s your company’s goals?What is unique about your business and what made you choose this type of business?

“My company’s goal is to generate $1M every single month. My business model is unique because I don’t only use facebook for marketing, I use almost every single platform to promote my product. Which many other companies lack. Honestly I chose Dropshipping because I was able to live financially free, without a boss.”
– Have you ever turned down a client? If you had one piece of advice to someone just starting out, what would it be? also what do you want out of this experience?. What do you want out of this experience?. Which three adjectives describe your strengths?. Do you have other hobbies?. What risks and sacrifices does such an enterprise demand?
“Yes I’ve turned down clients who aren’t ready to put in the work. My piece of advice is to always work hard, at the end of the day it will pay off. Also I want to be able to network with the whole community 21. I mean yes of course I play video games and sports like a normal teen. The sacrifice is that you may not be able to go to those parties, you may have to stay up late getting that bag!. I don’t mind giving up things like that.”
– What keeps you motivated as an ecommerce entrepreneur?
“Wanting to be different. I have nothing against people that want to work 9-5, but I personally wanted something different. I wanted to set my own hours, I wanted to take vacation on my own time, and to be my own boss. I wanted the freedom to do the things I wanted when I wanted. That’s something that keeps me motivated, that and the fear of failure. You know, I’ve already had success and I just can’t go back from there; I’ve worked too hard for this. Having this mindset is what keeps me going when I wake up every morning
