I want to shout out to all the day workers out there. I used to work a day job for a long time, and I have had a bunch of different experiences.


With my experiences, I met somebody who introduced me to the law of attraction and specifically the book called The Secret. He got me thinking about how to feel good and to attract good things into my life. That same day, I was able to get a seasonal job over the winter. After the season ended, I needed a job again, so I used the same techniques. I was able to attract a long term stable job. I enjoyed it so much, and I learned a lot of skills that I can use to become an entrepreneur.

Most of our customers in the company I worked for are business owners. I was able to interact with them and talk with them about businesses. That is how I started my first venture. One of them is willing to be my partner. He and I decided to start a company. We decided to sell bicycles, and at that time, there was this one type of bicycle that was trendy called a fixed-gear bike. We found some suppliers; we then put up an essential website. We started driving ads and traffic with SEO and content marketing.

It took a long time to build everything online because I did not have any mentors back then. I was learning things on Youtube about SEO. I was also taking community college courses in marketing and sales. I built my bookkeeping spreadsheet so I could file my taxes and save money.

I grew a lot in that time. I was trying to figure out how to escape my day job. I tried to learn everything I could. I read books, and I took classes in Real estate, stocks, and Multi-Level Marketing.


With all that happened, the only thing that came back to me is eCommerce. With ecommerce you can do it from your laptop at home there are no weird commission structures. You will be working directly with clients. You get paid right away because of that I just decided to go 100% with ecommerce, and I am so glad did.

We evolved from fixed-gear bikes, road bikes, tandem bikes, BMX bikes, and beach cruisers. Around 2014, I opened a bike shop which is another crazy experience, and I felt like instead of growing as a company, we started off working our way back into having prison experience of that day job where you have to go to a particular place every morning. It did not work out for me, so I decided to close the shop.

I went back home, and I had two choices. I could keep doing the internet business and build it again from where it was or sell the business. I decided to sell the business, and someone bought it for $50,000 in Flippa.



I took the opportunity to take a break and become a digital nomad. I sold all my stuff and go on a road trip and explore the rest of the US. The ecommerce business works great, and you can take it on the road with you as long as there is an internet connection.

I went back to selling electric bikes, and it worked well. It was profitable, and we can pay our bills; however, I realized that the cost of living in Los Angeles is prohibitive. We could spend the same amount of money traveling around Southeast Asia and having a fantastic time.


We went to Chiang Mai, Thailand, where we met a lot of digital nomads and learned great stuff. Back then, my wife and I grew apart. I love Southeast Asia, and she did not like it so much. She wanted to go back home. We decided to get divorced, which is no big deal. We are both happy and are still working together in our business. We decided to do what is best for us.

I am out here in Southeast Asia still and traveling around mostly in Indonesia now. I am working for my computer and building ecommerce paradise as well as our drop ship stores. We have one main store and another store we are scaling up. I am always making new content for the masterclass, and I am also creating free content for the Youtube community as well as podcasts.



Just understand that these high ticket drop shipping stores can do that for you. You have to put in the work to make it happen. It is possible, and it will be a long term thing that you are going to be running this kind of stuff yourself. The number one key is you have to be into it. You have got to be passionate about this or else you don’t make it.



There is the thing called the dip that I like to talk about Seth Godin talks about in his book called The Dip. In the very beginning, there is a little bit of a peak of excitement and then right as you get started you realize there’s a lot of work, so there’s a dip. That’s all the hard work happens in the beginning, and as soon as you get that hard work done, you keep going, and you are consistent with it, then you see a rise. Even then later on if you don’t meet your finances very well or something happens or if there are breakups, things will go dip again. It is going to be a rollercoaster ride.

This time, you are free to make your mind up about what you want to do every single day. You already know what you want to do and where you want to live. You can live your life according to your own choices and desire. If that is what you want, this is the best ways to do it. I can highly recommend high ticket dropshipping.

It is a huge deal, and I might not do this again. I will have something special for Black Friday but not this deep. Take advantage now if you are watching.
