Quick Guide to Create your Online Store with Shopify 2024

There is no luck, luck is, in reality, an opportunity, and opportunities must be executed

Let's go back to my early days when I was starting to sell personalized mugs.

I was taking the first steps in my business and I remember that my friends or close people to whom I told what I was doing used to say to me: "Ah, cups." Clearly, we come from a culture where selling mugs or paintings is not considered a BIG BUSINESS that could make thousands of dollars.

However, the reality is that it is in the United States.

Have you ever found yourself in that situation?

The truth is that I didn't know either. I was just starting out and what I was looking for was to generate additional income to reinvest later in the clothing business, which was what I knew.

But something happened in October. My wife and I focused on a specific niche which was gifts for BEST FRIENDS and we create more than 10 customizable products. It was amazing because I remember one night I created some ads on Facebook, I activated some ads for our Etsy shop and the next day we woke up and:

WHATTTTTTT! Magically, we had more than 40 orders and they kept coming. We had no idea how we were going to ship all those orders.

That was the beginning of an adventure that continues...

We have sold so far more than 20,000 orders of the same design in different types of products.

Every year we create new designs for seasons and improving the ones we already have positioned.

Currently, we are working on several products for the season. Mother's Day 2024 .

It's a great time to sell, and that's precisely why I created my Training Program.

In my program, I am offering a personalized level of support, working with my students on their products and providing them with guidance to start selling this season.

You still have time to join.
