Hi Hillier-and-son

Do you have any products in mind that you would like to sell?

have you thought about how you would like to sell these products? Eg web-store or online auctions?

Have you started to create a business plan to help you achieve your goals of going full-time?

Have you had a look at drop ship companies available that you like?

Have you researched your countries rules and regulations surrounding importing through customs.

Do you have an accountant?

Know these things will help me give you advice on how and where to go next.

Kind regards

Cody

Hi Hiller-and-Son and welcome to the forum, must admit that I had to do a double take on the name lol, was it just me? : )

Both Irene and Cody have given you some good questions you need to ask yourself and information sources to learn more about Drop Shipping.

The one thing I would say is your goal is important, but in reality, it's a very long term goal to accomplish, so set yourself for the long haul. Don't set your expectations too high, too soon, the higher they are, the harder they are to jump over!

Look forward to seeing you around the forum : )
