Hello all, First post here, but I have read over half of the forum already as of today! I have to say to those who wish for low low prices and huge profits that in the internet world it gets very difficult. Yes you can go for what's hot, like Ipods and things of the such, but mark my words, in order to have constant success, you gotta focus. Find your nich and focus on it. Yes it takes time and lots of hard work, but you can do it!
I've been in this business for about 3 years now, on and off. I'm only 22 but thanks to 'Rich Dad Poor Dad', I've been thinking ourside of the box. My first company was with my cousin and we did computer repair. I stumbled on the Impoting business when we were looking for cheap computer replacement parts. Found alibaba.com, which wasnt that big back then, but it was great. Liquidationstation was the first one I found, and was another reason I smiled when I looked at the links on this site to it. The Owner is Bonner G Smith, and this person shows that time and effort along with perserverance pays. Salehoo had the sites that I was stumbling on by accident over and over again!
Now this is my 4th company and its only focus is importing and exporting. At the $$$ level im at, which is ominous to say the least, I'm focusing on brokering to other companies. Even with little or no cash, you can make this work, we all can. I've been in computer repair, computer scrap, Real estate notes brokering, and Credit Repair (started that from scratch). I'm going to hold on to this one until I succeed.
All the other companies aren't failures or to show how big headed I am, the point is that you have to keep trying. Every so called failure is really a lesson, well actually mountains of lessons. You learn, pick yourself up and keep trying. Thomas Edison failed over 10,000 times making the lightbulb, and when people made fun of him for it he responded that every time he failed he learned one more way that it couldn't be done. Always think positive, even when the chips are down.
Thanks to all you guys here in Salehoo, you are incredibly patient with everyone else, with much understanding in your hearts. GOD bless you all. This forum isnt that old, so anyone who reads this would do well (i think) to participate now. This is the Prime time to learn and to make money from this forum, not to jinx it for later times, but you know how forums get with age. Now is when we have the most dedicated people who truely want others to succeed as they have! Oh and one last thing, if anyone needs any advice with company starting, contracts, ect. I have experience in all that, as I'm sure others do too, ask away and dont be shy!
