Yuh don't say!
Glad to know that I'm not the only one representing. The first bit of advice I can give is 'perseverance'. As you can see, I am a member since July 2006 but I really didn't starting using Salehoo to my advantage until June 2007. That was when I decided if 'they' could do it, so can I. So, I became an avid reader in the forum and gain some invaluable knowledge.
Like most people who aspire to do well in ecommerce, I was baffled with the idea of what to sell and where to get it. Well I still am. It is what drives me in this never-ending search for the next great deal, and, to be truthful I love it. I love the fire and desire of the hunt. Call it what you may. We are HUSTLERS! INTERNET HUSTLERS. If you sit back it would not come to you. You have to go get it. I work from the luxury of my home after years on menial jobs here and there. I am not saying that I am living the lifestyle of the rich and famous, nor do I suggest that you do the same. I am just saying that setting goals and striving to achieve them is the essence of life.
Any advice you may need, please feel free in IM me anytime. It may not be a blueprint for success, but from what I or other knowledgeable members in the forum might offer, you sure can learn a lot. Looking forward to hearing from you all.
