This course shows you how to build your own online store with the objective of making at least $60K in profit annually. For many people, this store can replace your current income.

This course takes a hands-on approach. It is expected that you will follow along and complete the assignments that are given to you so that you can see your store come to life. It is expected that by the time you finish the assignments in this course, you will have a store that is on its way to netting you an income of $60K.
I will use a few examples of stores I'm currently building (Custom Vinyl Decor and Online Safety Depot) from the ground up so that you can see the progress I'm making and motivate yourself to follow the formula.
Here are some of the topics you will learn about as you build your $60K store:
This course is made up of instructions and assignments that make use of those instructions.

|Section 1: My Experience Building Ecommerce Businesses|
This lecture explains the successes I've had building ecommerce businesses throughout my career.
I've built and sold businesses related to:
...and they just keep coming.
This course explains the process I've used to do what I've done. This lecture is an introduction to the process.
Having some understanding of what your store should look like when you're making some sweet moolah should motivate you to get there.
This lecture explains the details of what a fully built and marketed ecommerce store looks like.
Building an ecommerce store that can be your full-time income takes some skills. You likely have some of these skills already, and you may need to develop new skills.
This lecture explains what skills you'll be using to build your store. Many of the activities necessary for your store can be outsourced. Having a solid understanding of what's involved in building your store allows you to know what you're up against.
I am currently building two new ecommerce stores: OnlineSafetyDepot.com and CustomVinylDecor.com.
Throughout this course, I will use these two stores as examples of how to build your own store.
OnlineSafetyDepot.com is a WordPress-based store that uses WooCommerce.
CustomVinylDecor.com uses BigCommerce, a hosted shopping cart solution.

|Section 2: Setting Up Your Company and Suppliers|
This lecture describes the process of setting up a business entity for your ecommerce store:
This lecture explains how to determine which products you want to sell in your store. It's recommended that you sell something that you're interested in. Also, selling higher dollar products ($500-$2000) usually makes it so that you can make more money per hour that you spend on your business.
Many people mistake drop-ship lists and coaching memberships as substitutes for legitimate hard work. This lecture explains why it's not good to fall for those tactics.
If you're going to be doing drop-shipping, you need to set up relationships with suppliers of the products you want to sell. This lecture explains the techniques I've used to find suppliers for my businesses.
This lecture explains what you need to have to set up dealer accounts. It also presents my approach to successfully setting up dealer accounts with distributors who might be hesitant about startup using online retailers.
You need to determine which personality types you will likely be selling your products to. This lecture describes how to form a basic understanding of who your customers will be.

|Section 6: Operating Your Store|
I have been building and selling internet businesses since 1999, including stores that sell outdoor gear, sporting goods, children's clothing, medical products, and general clothing. I've created a repeatable model for building ecommerce stores that sell niche products.
Over the years, I've also taught several live classes on how to create an income by selling products, especially ones that are drop-shipped from a supplier, on a website.
