I have never liked having a boss. Let’s be honest, most of us don’t. I wanted to find out a way to be my own boss; set my own hours, make the money I wanted to, go on vacation when I want, make the business decisions myself, etc.
I always thought in the back of my mind I could find out a way to make money online selling a product or service. That thought was moved to the front once I was informed of the world of dropshipping. I came up with the perfect product in my mind: kegerators. Finding products at wholesale cost and reselling them at retail to online customers couldn’t be that hard I thought.
Boy was I wrong. I quickly found out that there was much more behind the scenes then I could have imagined. I needed a teacher, a coach, a mentor, whatever you want to call it. That’s when Trent Jessee answered my calling. I was somehow fortunate enough to get a free 30-minute training call with Trent. It was through Zoom, and I expected it to be some type of classroom setting.
I was pleasantly surprised when the Zoom meeting began, and it was just Trent and myself. Free one-on-one training? This is exactly what I needed. I let Trent know I was just starting to get my feet wet, and I really had no idea what I was doing. He was extremely patient with me, answering all my questions, and getting me pointed in the right direction.
I was so excited after that phone call, but I quickly learned I had more questions. Trent continues to be there for me anytime I have a question. He has gone out of his way to make sure that I am headed towards the path of success. One important thing he has taught me is that I need to work on this project everyday. I can’t just set up everything and expect traffic to just magically appear.
He taught me that WordPress is much better to use than Ecwid, Shopify, etc. He helped me move my site from Ecwid over to WordPress, and even hooked me up with an awesome theme: Flatsome. He taught me how to find suppliers and what to say when I call asking them if I can become a dealer for them. He explained to me what a sales funnel was, and why it was so important in this business. He educated me on network affiliates and how it can help expand my business.
Trent has done all of this and more. Although I have yet to make a sale, his mentorship has been priceless in my continuing process of building this business. I am confident that it will be profitable because of the knowledge and mindset Trent has instilled in me. I would say that Trent’s positive attitude, vast knowledge, and outlook in this business are the most valuable assets he has given me. I look forward to continue working with Trent, and I highly recommend him to anyone that needs some coaching in the dropship business.
