I always knew I wanted to have my own business some day, but to be honest, I always saw it happening in the long run and never really put much through to it. Partially because I had just graduated from Marketing and didn’t really know what I would offer as a service/product. I thought that gaining some experience would lead me to starting my own business eventually. To some extent, it did… however, the muse didn’t exactly appear the way I thought it would be.
At 25 years old, being a young married mother forced me to look at my life in a new perspective. It pushed me to find solutions to achieve the lifestyle that I wish to have in order to be able to do both – working and taking care of my family – without the need to choose one or the other. That’s when I realized that all I needed to do was simply to start somewhere and that I don’t really need to be an expert in order to build a business.
It was then that I started searching conditioning my mind, reading and looking for alternatives on how I could start my business and stumbled upon DropshipXL (brand of Trent Jessee). I knew that building an e-commerce store was the way to go INSTANTLY in order to gain the flexibility in my life that I so desperately needed! Although I am a marketing professional with graphic design and website developing experience, I opted for 1-on-1 coaching because I wanted to get the grasps of building the business for myself with the guidance of someone that already had the experience and knowledge of doing it. I also needed someone to keep me accountable, because in entrepreneurship it’s so easy to give up if you don’t have someone there to keep you motivated and is there to help you achieve milestones and provide some sort of guidance.
Trent has been absolutely wonderful since our very first conversation. Choosing to get his help was a complete “no-brainer”, because he immediately understood my reasons for building my own business and gave me an overview to the blueprint he would use to assist me in achieving those goals.
All of our Coaching Sessions have been extremely professional and I have been very impressed with all of the insight and valuable information he has been able to give me in order to shape my mentality and become a successful entrepreneur. He’s always extremely available and reachable with a simple chat or email to answer all of my questions. Lessons have ranged from researching to find the perfect niche for me, to finding suppliers and learning how to contact them, and even making product projections to ensure the adequate profit margin per product.
I am at the point of completing my official store launch and I do not regret having invested on Trent’s help and knowledge for my business. It’s invaluable information that I can certainly apply over and over on every single business I decide to continue building in the future.
