I have been working with Trent Jessee for about a month now. I feel like I’ve known him for many years. He is thoughtful and intelligent. He listens for information and every time we talk, I learn something new. Before I met Trent, I had been trying to establish an e-Commerce business for 4 months. I lost a lot of money working with other establishments.
I was very frustrated, and when I voiced my frustration with those people I trusted with my money, it was clear to me that they had given me all they had to offer, which wasn’t very much. Up front, they knew that this was a late in life career move for this nurse. I brought with me customer service skills, respect for others, wisdom, adequate computer skills. What I needed was the business specific knowledge to get an online store up and running and producing revenue NOW. This had not occurred, and everyday that passed found me in a higher state of anxiety.
Even in my state of high anxiety I was clear about my goals: get a professional looking website up and running ASAP with high quality product in my chosen niche, generating revenue NOW, all the while gaining knowledge about becoming an e-Commerce professional. One day I came across information from Trent’s Watchman Advisors. I read everything and became very excited.
This was different and i could already sense a cultural fit for me. Ii signed up for Dropship XL immediately. But the big word that caught my eye was mentoring. I signed up for an introductory meeting, and soon I was speaking directly to Trent. I speak with Trent every week and have learned so much. I think the most important lessons learned and skills I have developed thus far in my mentoring journey include the following:
1.Early on it became apparent that by hook or crook I needed a laptop or desktop. I got a Mac Book Pro, and it has made my work much easier. In addition to his many skills, Trent (himself a PC user) has helped me to gain command over this little Mac monster and my confidence grows daily.
2.Finding appropriate product is important, and it can come from several sources. I have learned it is important to have well rounded sources in order to have sustained cash flow.
3.Populating my site with product was a big challenge at first. With practice I have gotten better, though I’m still not as slick as Trent! I plan to do this for the long term, so I can see that one day this challenge will become easy.
4.I have never blogged before. I never really understood the importance of a blog. I do now and my first one will be posted this weekend. I believe meeting Trent was providential. I am now confident that with hard work i can meet my goals.
