I started my ecommerce store in May 2000 with about $1,500 and a dream. I was pretty young at the time and didn’t know much about running a business, let alone an Internet business, but I thought that having my own web store would be a fun and (hopefully) profitable hobby.
Although we were in the midst of the dot-com bubble, there actually weren’t many platforms that made it easy for individuals to build their own site. I remember reading an article about Yahoo Stores at the time and decided to sign up. More than a decade later, that $1,500 has turned into hundreds of thousands of dollars of profit.
In 2009, I started selling products on Amazon and have been very pleased with the results. While it can be difficult to find the right products to sell, they really do make it a very easy platform for sellers and it’s now where I generate most of my revenue.
I’m not rich and I still work a full-time job, but I’d like to think I know a little bit about what I’m doing. I know I still come up short in a lot of ways, though, so my goal with this site is to share my experiences – both good and bad. I hope to share my knowledge with those who are looking for a little guidance, but I’m also hoping that my readers will also share some experiences for me to learn from.
