As a student you rely on the teachers you invest in to maintain high quality lesson throughout a course while also being available to answer more advanced questions and update the course as needed. Above all, a knowledgeable instructor with clear communication.

As your instructor I promise to create and maintain premium level courses that provide guaranteed value.

In over 8 years of Importing from Alibaba, I have helped launch multiple start-ups, as well as consulted many more. Throughout my career in business I discovered my true passion was to help start-ups; often founded by brilliant and passionate entrepreneurs with lack of experience and funds to excel themselves into a profitable and sustainable business.

Helping others learn to establish their business and create economical freedom for themselves, and their family is what I love to do!
