00:01:08 00:01:11 what I really want to get across to you
00:01:10 00:01:15 guys say that are just getting started
00:01:11 00:01:17 in drop shipping is that you want to set
00:01:15 00:01:20 real realistik expectations for yourself
00:01:17 00:01:22 right you see a lot of people online in
00:01:20 00:01:23 this space right showing off a lot of
00:01:22 00:01:26 nice things
00:01:23 00:01:28 Lamborghinis Rolex is right like a lot
00:01:26 00:01:31 of things that you know you could easily
00:01:28 00:01:34 be convinced this is like it very easily
00:01:31 00:01:36 attainable now let me tell you something
00:01:34 00:01:38 guys I have been in online marketing for
00:01:36 00:01:40 close to 10 years right now and I love
00:01:38 00:01:42 to always say that I'm a 10 year
00:01:40 00:01:43 overnight success story and a lot of
00:01:42 00:01:45 people look at me they you know like I
00:01:43 00:01:46 buy I do I have bought myself some nice
00:01:45 00:01:48 things here and there
00:01:46 00:01:50 bought myself this beautiful new house
00:01:48 00:01:51 new construction house that I've never
00:01:50 00:01:53 imagined million years I'd ever be able
00:01:51 00:01:55 to afford and all of those things came
00:01:53 00:01:58 from you know having an e-commerce
00:01:55 00:02:00 business okay but you can't expect those
00:01:58 00:02:02 things like that like even in your first
00:02:00 00:02:04 year guys because for me like I said
00:02:02 00:02:06 I've been in this for 10 years I've had
00:02:04 00:02:09 the craziest ups and downs I've had more
00:02:06 00:02:11 business failures than I can remember
00:02:09 00:02:13 right but what you want to do is when
00:02:11 00:02:15 you're just getting started is set
00:02:13 00:02:18 realistik goals and expectations for
00:02:15 00:02:20 yourself okay so instead of going out
00:02:18 00:02:22 and just jumping right into drop
00:02:20 00:02:23 shipping instead write what you actually
00:02:22 00:02:25 want to achieve what are the goals that
00:02:23 00:02:26 you actually want to hit in your you
00:02:25 00:02:27 know your first six months of
00:02:26 00:02:30 dropshipping your first year of drop
00:02:27 00:02:31 shipping and set realistik goals if you
00:02:30 00:02:33 and and this really this whole
00:02:31 00:02:35 conversation stemmed from you know a
00:02:33 00:02:37 one-on-one client that I have that is
00:02:35 00:02:38 freshly brand new to e-commerce no
00:02:37 00:02:41 experience whatsoever and I always have
00:02:38 00:02:42 to have these discovery sessions with
00:02:41 00:02:44 with my clients because I want to hear
00:02:42 00:02:45 like what their expectations are and a
00:02:44 00:02:47 lot of people like oh I want to make
00:02:45 00:02:49 $10,000 next month and guys like I'm
00:02:47 00:02:51 telling you yes some people some of my
00:02:49 00:02:52 students have done it I'm envious of
00:02:51 00:02:54 them because for me to make my first
00:02:52 00:02:56 $10,000 month did not come for years
00:02:54 00:02:58 when I first first getting started in
00:02:56 00:03:00 online marketing okay so I'm definitely
00:02:58 00:03:02 envious of the people that come so
00:03:00 00:03:05 easily to but you need to set realistik
00:03:02 00:03:06 goals if you are coming into online
00:03:05 00:03:09 marketing if you've never made a dollar
00:03:06 00:03:10 online you're going to have a little bit
00:03:09 00:03:12 longer of a journey now that's not to
00:03:10 00:03:14 deter you to be like hey don't start
00:03:12 00:03:15 start this I'm telling you this is the
00:03:14 00:03:18 most rewarding thing that you will ever
00:03:15 00:03:19 do in your entire life building a
00:03:18 00:03:22 business that can support you that can
00:03:19 00:03:23 support your family right like the one
00:03:22 00:03:24 that can let get you out of your
00:03:23 00:03:26 nine-to-five job if that's what you're
00:03:24 00:03:28 looking to achieve right like I'm
00:03:26 00:03:30 telling you though every night when I go
00:03:28 00:03:33 to bed and knowing that I've created
00:03:30 00:03:35 something that that can support me
00:03:33 00:03:37 support my family buy myself a house
00:03:35 00:03:38 really buy myself a you know pay for my
00:03:37 00:03:40 car pay and pay for everything that I
00:03:38 00:03:41 need to sustain is like literally the
00:03:40 00:03:44 most rewarding thing and I want that for
00:03:41 00:03:45 every single one of you okay but you
00:03:44 00:03:48 have to understand that it is a process
00:03:45 00:03:49 to get there okay you're not gonna hit
00:03:48 00:03:51 it out of the park right out of the gate
00:03:49 00:03:53 so what I encourage you to do is set
00:03:51 00:03:56 realistik goals set a six-month goal set
00:03:53 00:03:58 yearly goals and five-year goals so for
00:03:56 00:03:59 example if you're looking to quit your a
00:03:58 00:04:01 nine-to-five job you're looking to get
00:03:59 00:04:04 out of that or if you're just trying to
00:04:01 00:04:06 just try to supplement your income and
00:04:04 00:04:07 have an additional income stream right
00:04:06 00:04:09 which is a very smart decision I always
00:04:07 00:04:10 recommend people not just have one
00:04:09 00:04:13 source of income have multiple sources
00:04:10 00:04:14 of income so maybe for the first year if
00:04:13 00:04:16 you're just getting into e-commerce you
00:04:14 00:04:18 have that nine-to-five job you manage
00:04:16 00:04:21 your time as effectively as possible
00:04:18 00:04:22 during that time and everyday you know
00:04:21 00:04:24 come back from work you're very you're
00:04:22 00:04:24 very cognizant with your time and making
00:04:24 00:04:26 sure
00:04:24 00:04:30 your time building your business as well
00:04:26 00:04:31 so as in that first year what your goal
00:04:30 00:04:33 might be will be like hey you know I'm
00:04:31 00:04:34 gonna have my 95 job but by the end of
00:04:33 00:04:37 the year I want to be making a least
00:04:34 00:04:38 five to ten thousand dollars in sales
00:04:37 00:04:40 and my ecommerce businesses right and
00:04:38 00:04:42 that's more of a realistik goal right
00:04:40 00:04:44 five to ten thousand dollars a month in
00:04:42 00:04:47 your e-commerce business and one year
00:04:44 00:04:48 with a full-time job is very very
00:04:47 00:04:51 achievable is very I'm not gonna say
00:04:48 00:04:52 it's simple or easy it does take work on
00:04:51 00:04:55 your part guys of course it takes some
00:04:52 00:04:56 effort but yes it's a 100% achievable
00:04:55 00:05:00 goal that anyone of you watching this
00:04:56 00:05:02 can can easily achieve okay but you do
00:05:00 00:05:04 need to become very cognizant of your
00:05:02 00:05:06 time and understand that you need to put
00:05:04 00:05:07 the time and you have to be the one that
00:05:06 00:05:09 clicks a button here you're gonna go
00:05:07 00:05:11 through some rough patches you're gonna
00:05:09 00:05:13 need to to find it within yourself to
00:05:11 00:05:16 keep going even when things are looking
00:05:13 00:05:18 like crap and it looking like things are
00:05:16 00:05:20 never gonna gonna work out but I always
00:05:18 00:05:22 promise you guys like the people that
00:05:20 00:05:25 the only people that ever fail are the
00:05:22 00:05:27 ones that give up right that it's that's
00:05:25 00:05:30 an amazing quote to live by right if you
00:05:27 00:05:31 never quit you will never fail okay and
00:05:30 00:05:33 a lot of people that get discouraged or
00:05:31 00:05:35 first go around and then they quit okay
00:05:33 00:05:37 but I want you to be I want that's what
00:05:35 00:05:39 exactly what I want you to set like good
00:05:37 00:05:42 expectations for yourself going into it
00:05:39 00:05:44 understanding right understanding that
00:05:42 00:05:46 there is going to be charred ships
00:05:44 00:05:48 there's going to be struggles but guess
00:05:46 00:05:50 what it's not your main source of income
00:05:48 00:05:51 right coming right out of the gate okay
00:05:50 00:05:54 you're gonna be doing you have your
00:05:51 00:05:55 full-time job you have your your
00:05:54 00:05:58 e-commerce side hustle business that's
00:05:55 00:05:59 going and eventually maybe you're - now
00:05:58 00:06:02 you can be like okay now it's time let's
00:05:59 00:06:03 scale this thing up I want my my revenue
00:06:02 00:06:06 and my e-commerce businesses to surpass
00:06:03 00:06:09 my full-time jobs income and hopefully
00:06:06 00:06:11 quit my job on year number two okay and
00:06:09 00:06:13 this is also a good strategy to go with
00:06:11 00:06:15 guys because it's gonna let you save up
00:06:13 00:06:18 money for like a test like for like
00:06:15 00:06:21 expenses right like a lot I've actually
00:06:18 00:06:23 had people where they quit their job and
00:06:21 00:06:24 then you go all-in on e-commerce and
00:06:23 00:06:26 they have no experience with e-commerce
00:06:24 00:06:27 right and that's like not a good place
00:06:26 00:06:29 to come from guys because when you're
00:06:27 00:06:32 trying to go all-in and I'm all for
00:06:29 00:06:34 all-in and dedicating on 2% but when
00:06:32 00:06:36 you're stressed about money especially
00:06:34 00:06:37 where you're gonna get your next meal to
00:06:36 00:06:40 build your e-commerce
00:06:37 00:06:41 that's tough that's that's extreme it's
00:06:40 00:06:44 a lot tougher to achieve a goal like
00:06:41 00:06:46 that guys because you need money to
00:06:44 00:06:47 build a business a lot of people say you
00:06:46 00:06:49 could start with zero yes you could
00:06:47 00:06:50 start with zero you can have trials and
00:06:49 00:06:52 stuff but you're gonna need money
00:06:50 00:06:54 especially as you're a brand new person
00:06:52 00:06:55 to test right
00:06:54 00:06:57 you can't expect that your first
00:06:55 00:06:58 products gonna be a home run you're
00:06:57 00:07:00 right you're gonna have to have money
00:06:58 00:07:02 for advertising expenses as well that's
00:07:00 00:07:04 why I encourage people have that full
00:07:02 00:07:07 time job as you build your side hustle
00:07:04 00:07:08 and see how things progress set those
00:07:07 00:07:09 goals first year okay I want to by the
00:07:08 00:07:11 end of this year I want to be
00:07:09 00:07:14 consistently doing five ten thousand
00:07:11 00:07:16 dollars a month at 50% profit margins
00:07:14 00:07:17 okay reinvesting all that money back
00:07:16 00:07:19 into growing and scaling that business
00:07:17 00:07:21 hiring team members launching new offers
00:07:19 00:07:23 right launching new funnels learning
00:07:21 00:07:24 right learning is part of is the
00:07:23 00:07:26 probably the most important part of this
00:07:24 00:07:27 whole thing is a lot of people right
00:07:26 00:07:30 they're they're always hate they hate
00:07:27 00:07:31 people that sell programs or mentors or
00:07:30 00:07:32 whatever and they're scared to invest
00:07:31 00:07:33 themselves but I can tell you I would
00:07:32 00:07:35 never be where I'm at right now without
00:07:33 00:07:37 my mentors and all the programs and all
00:07:35 00:07:39 the conferences and I spent tens of
00:07:37 00:07:41 thousands of dollars a month on my
00:07:39 00:07:43 education guys so make sure you go and
00:07:41 00:07:44 shorten your learning or go get a mentor
00:07:43 00:07:46 go get a course go get something to
00:07:44 00:07:47 shorten your learning curve because when
00:07:46 00:07:49 you're coming into this space and you're
00:07:47 00:07:51 trying to figure it out yourself
00:07:49 00:07:53 you might waste your full first year
00:07:51 00:07:55 just making them the same mistakes like
00:07:53 00:07:56 for example that I did where I can teach
00:07:55 00:07:58 you and help you write and I'm not
00:07:56 00:07:59 trying to shamelessly plug myself but
00:07:58 00:08:01 I'm just saying if you're learning
00:07:59 00:08:03 trying to learn ecommerce sales funnels
00:08:01 00:08:05 and continuity programs like why like
00:08:03 00:08:06 why wouldn't you want to learn from me
00:08:05 00:08:07 you know what I mean like that's just
00:08:06 00:08:08 like it's the same thing like with
00:08:07 00:08:10 mindset like if I want to learn my it's
00:08:08 00:08:11 okay I'll go to like the best mindset
00:08:10 00:08:13 coach oh I want to get in the best shape
00:08:11 00:08:16 I'm gonna go to the best fitness fitness
00:08:13 00:08:17 coach in my in my area right don't try
00:08:16 00:08:19 and do everything yourself
00:08:17 00:08:21 learn from other people's mistakes this
00:08:19 00:08:22 is exactly why I love reading books so
00:08:21 00:08:25 much guys because they give you insight
00:08:22 00:08:27 of people that that that have lived
00:08:25 00:08:29 before you that wrote their story in
00:08:27 00:08:30 their book that you can learn from so
00:08:29 00:08:33 that's the second thing I want you guys
00:08:30 00:08:36 to do during your during your e-commerce
00:08:33 00:08:37 journey right is it made sure that you
00:08:36 00:08:40 are continuing your education your
00:08:37 00:08:42 education is the most important part of
00:08:40 00:08:43 this because if you don't know what
00:08:42 00:08:45 you're doing like if you don't know what
00:08:43 00:08:45 you're doing you're gonna keep making
00:08:45 00:08:47 mistakes
00:08:45 00:08:49 you're gonna keep you're not gonna get
00:08:47 00:08:49 any traction and you just need to invest
00:08:49 00:08:51 a little bit
00:08:49 00:08:53 money to shorten your learning curve so
00:08:51 00:08:55 for example if you do a year of mistakes
00:08:53 00:08:56 and I could have saved you by giving you
00:08:55 00:08:58 let's say me let's say you gave me a
00:08:56 00:09:01 thousand dollars you can learn my exact
00:08:58 00:09:03 process right I just saved you a year of
00:09:01 00:09:05 time right and everybody that's watching
00:09:03 00:09:09 this right now a year of time you're
00:09:05 00:09:12 well worth a thousand dollars okay start
00:09:09 00:09:14 treating your time more valuable okay
00:09:12 00:09:16 that's one of the the critikal pieces of
00:09:14 00:09:18 this piece as well guys because because
00:09:16 00:09:22 as you have that full time job you're
00:09:18 00:09:24 going to need to be so strict with your
00:09:22 00:09:26 time you're gonna have to be so strict
00:09:24 00:09:27 with your time right you're gonna have
00:09:26 00:09:29 to stop going out on weekends right
00:09:27 00:09:30 you're going to have to maybe work a few
00:09:29 00:09:32 hours every single night but you gotta
00:09:30 00:09:35 want this more than anything else
00:09:32 00:09:36 because nobody's gonna do it for you
00:09:35 00:09:38 okay
00:09:36 00:09:40 if you don't want it nobody cares if you
00:09:38 00:09:42 don't want it like nobody's gonna do the
00:09:40 00:09:44 work for you okay you have to be the one
00:09:42 00:09:46 you are getting behind the keyboard and
00:09:44 00:09:48 working your butt off and trying to make
00:09:46 00:09:50 this happen for yourself because I'm a
00:09:48 00:09:52 true sister and believer if somebody
00:09:50 00:09:54 else can achieve something so can i and
00:09:52 00:09:56 you have to shift that mindset instead
00:09:54 00:09:58 of that that mindset of like poverty
00:09:56 00:10:00 almost that a lot of people have to a
00:09:58 00:10:01 Minds have like abundance where like you
00:10:00 00:10:03 know what if that guy could do it why
00:10:01 00:10:05 the hell can I write like if he's
00:10:03 00:10:06 achieved that why can't I do it right
00:10:05 00:10:08 like that's that's he's a human he's
00:10:06 00:10:11 Flash's blood he's all these things that
00:10:08 00:10:14 I am why can't I do it as well so start
00:10:11 00:10:15 like sir treating yourself like you can
00:10:14 00:10:17 achieve things that's not doubting
00:10:15 00:10:19 yourself that so many people do so many
00:10:17 00:10:21 people I see guys they're just looking
00:10:19 00:10:23 for permission all right they're just
00:10:21 00:10:24 looking for permission like to be always
00:10:23 00:10:26 that a good idea or is that not a good
00:10:24 00:10:28 idea get some confidence be like you
00:10:26 00:10:29 know what I am on the right path I am
